Ennui…

I just texted a dear friend and after exchanging our days today, she told me to go write something.  I replied that everything seemed negative in my head, but I was trying to get something written. Suddenly I thought of what we are all going through, quarantine.   How many words describe quarantine? I turned toContinue reading “Ennui…”

Into the Unknown…

A couple of nights ago, hubby and I watched Frozen 2.   This morning I woke up with the refrain from“Into the Unknown” bouncing around my brain.  Wish I knew more of the words, but that is for another time. After having my morning coffee, I set out to do my grocery shopping, which I hadContinue reading “Into the Unknown…”

A Light in the Clearing…

I love walking in the woods, well, those woods I know, at least.  My favorite poem is by Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”  and I find myself quoting it several times.

(Veteran’s Administration) clinic.  We have gone there numerous times and I always sit and people watch.   Today was no different. The V.A. is not a place to go if you don’t want to be reminded of what men and womenContinue reading “Another Visit to the V.A.”

Ramblings from a would be writer…

What a week!  Not bad, actually, but filled.  This post won’t be about anything in particular, but, as the title suggests, it will be a rambling of what is on my mind. A couple of weeks ago I decided  that come September 1st, I was going to start to run again.  Not a huge decision asContinue reading “Ramblings from a would be writer…”
