I feel like I'm running so late on writing now, all the time. I made it through being sick, work is busy and time is precious. But here I am, and no matter how long it takes, I'm always happy to see the words flowing as I type. It's one of the few times my … Continue reading Tis The Season…
This has been an eventful, and sometimes brutal year. For myself, it involved not one, but two job changes, and the passing of a close friend, as well as other friends losing loved ones as well. It's been a year of pain, and a year of growth, but there have been times of beauty, love … Continue reading As The Year Winds Down
As any athlete (and many artists as well), there comes a point where you feel as though you are breaking. You are in pain, and it doesn't feel as though you are making any progress. But every one of them will tell you, if you keep pushing through the pain, no matter how hard it … Continue reading Pushing Through The Wall
Things have been keeping me busy lately, but for the first time in a long time, I don't feel like I'm playing "catch-up," and it feels good.

It's not so much that I have anything stressful or pressing to worry about. It's just that my mind is always going, and it's always thinking and wondering about life, people, thought processes, … Continue reading Service and the Power of Help
I know it has been quite some time since the last time I wrote anything. I've been working what seems like almost non-stop. And it's not far from the truth. I've only really had one day off since then, as I've been training or my new position, and I officially took that position at my … Continue reading Seeing the Blessings
Sometimes, change can happen in an instant, and when you see the moment, you know automatically what the right thing to do is. For the past month, that's part of what I've been working on. And four days ago, the change finally happened. For the second time this year, I have found myself changing jobs, … Continue reading Change Can Happen In An Instant
