From The Blog:
Calling all Creatives!
Busy people don’t have epiphanies.” One of Einstein’s lesser-known theories that he believed brought him to his greatest potential can explain a lot about how creativity is cultivated. He wholeheartedly believed that ideas happen when our minds are at rest or when...
Embracing the Mercury Retrograde
The first Mercury Retrograde of the year began in mid-January and wrapped up this February in what felt like another backward spin to the surreal times we all find ourselves living in. Like many of you, I’m learning to listen to the stars and apply patience as I take...
Off the Covid Benches and Into the Query Trenches
I finished my manuscript. There, I said it. That statement used to be gilded with large CAPS, exclamation points, and rainbow font in true ROYGBV fashion, yet somehow it feels different this time. For some reason, I’m not feeling the typical show of excitement to...
The time is Now!
I'll admit it, I'm as giddy as Molder and Scully fan club as I geek out over the news of the Pentagon's UFO report scheduled to be delivered to congress any day now. It's not like I ever needed proof that aliens exist, but boy will it be fun to watch distinguished...
Staying COVID Positive
We did everything we were supposed to do. We followed the recommendations. We didn’t let the Covid fatigue get us down. We stuck with the protocols to prevent any of us from getting sick and stayed vigilant. We even signed our kids up for virtual schooling for the...
Cookies and Milk

The Last Dance
I don't know about any of you, but I assume we've all had thoughts of our own mortality with everything going on lately. And, interestingly enough, I've recently found myself thinking about that on a grander scale. I mean, what would it actually be like to live life...
‘Do Not Open Until March 23rd’
Everyone doing okay? I'm only asking because if you're anything like me, your head is spinning lately with all the news trickling in. We're all hunkering down, trying to see straight around the daily updates and news we can't simply avoid anymore. This COVID 19 scare...
The Beast of Change
When change comes, as it always does, we sometimes stand in its way. Other times we embrace it with open arms, but no matter how we react to it, one variable never seems to budge—ready or not, here it comes! Our path in life and the simple fact that we're human sets...
A Saga for a New Year: A New Hope
I woke up this New Year's morning with zero idea on how to ring in the new year. What I knew for certain was that my day always starts with writing. Okay, I thought, I'll start with some kind of New Year's resolution-y thing to ring in the moment. Hubby’s been sick,...
