The Grass Where He Stood

Since I have the great luxury this year of having President's Day off (I can't remember the last time I had it off, maybe not since school?)  I thought I'd post a small tribute to Honest Abe, although that's a little disingenuous. Mostly I'm obsessed with the piece of music that plays over the images, … Continue reading The Grass Where He Stood

Circle of Joy

Since I have no news, other than being home sick for the last three days and trying to work from home a bit, I thought I'd share some music. Here's a beautiful Celtic harp piece called Circle of Joy, by Lisa Lynne. Windham Hill sticks it on their Celtic Christmas collections, which is fine, but … Continue reading Circle of Joy

Annual Accounting of Stupid New Year’s Resolutions

Well. Here we are again. About a month away from wrapping up another year, and me watching in horror as my life flies by while toiling for meager wages. Yes I'm still grumbling. Yes I know I should be grateful I have a job, and I am. I just wish it left me some time … Continue reading Annual Accounting of Stupid New Year’s Resolutions

Save Yourself

Here are the two opening paragraphs from the one that I'm most obsessed with lately, tentatively titled "Save Yourself; I'll Hold Them Back" (thanks to My Chemical Romance): Pistol gripped in … Continue reading Save Yourself

A Gentle Start for the Week

This card immediately made me think of "Little Women". If you're a guy and haven't read it or even know what it is, it's a book by Louisa May Alcott about four sisters during the Civil War while their father is off fighting and they and their mother and aunt try to keep the household … Continue reading A Gentle Start for the Week

Bread of Angels

I thought I had shared this awhile back, but I can't find it searching through old posts. This is a piece I heard on one of the music stations I listen to while writing. It's by Stanton Lanier, and it's called Bread of Angels. This guy used to be a chemist, and then a financial … Continue reading Bread of Angels

Thoughts as I Thinketh

Well, this was just going to be a quick post to show the card, as our ‘thought for the coming week’ but the quote got me started thinking, as I’m sure it was intended to do. The card is from Charlene Livingstone's Art of Life Tarot. I do think this is an interesting choice for … Continue reading Thoughts as I Thinketh

A Walk in the Park

I’m really bad about doing much of anything when I’m on vacation. I’m like a Vulcan, I want my time off to be truly time off, with as little activity as possible. I spend so much time on the road commuting to and from work, and frantically rushing around to get things done when I … Continue reading A Walk in the Park
