Just Write: {NIAW)

I often need to be reminded, not so much about the issue but about my place within the group, as if I need to constantly be told, “Yes, you belong here.” My voice is not loud and boisterous (it never really was) and my story is not current. Honestly, sometimes (although I’m ashamed to admit…

Remember, Goodbye Doesn’t Mean Forever {TMT}

  I don’t like Goodbyes. I prefer to think that there are no goodbyes, just one door closing and another opening that will eventually bring the people we love back when it’s time. I am missing people lately. Some have passed on from this life and some have just moved, physically, emotionally or otherwise.  Even…

And You Can Tell Everybody This is Your Song: TMT {Twisted Mix Tape}

  There are only two more weeks of Twisted Mix Tape (for now)  I’m feeling all the feelings of losing a place where I learned things, heard stories and music, felt the pull of a community. (Cue teary eyes) This week the prompt is : “Those lyrics are genius!” Of course that’s a bit subjective…

Seen {Just Write}

I’m not sure what she saw. However, if you’d bothered to ask me, I would have pointed out all the faults. Weariness. Smiles that never quite reach my eyes anymore or even the new haircut that is too new,  thus causing me to touch it too often, resulting in cowlicks and strands that vehemently ignore…

If I Can’t Have You… (TMT-Twisted Mix Tape)

    Forbidden love is a hard subject to tackle because  I believe all of us, at one time or another, have wanted someone (something) we couldn’t have. I think that it somehow makes the chase  sweeter, more delightful and dare I say it,  wonderfully sinful before it turns bitter and your world falls apart….

Random Rules! {Old School Blogging for March}

What is the last thing you watched on TV? I love TV. The last thing I watched yesterday was the ‘almost-ending-of White House Down” but  just before I actually started to get behind the fact that Jamie Foxx could be the POTUS I had to go upstairs and put my children to bed because they…

How I Haven’t Hardened My Heart…Just Yet.

I am not a music snob. In fact I love all kinds of groups and musicians. Popular music, Broadway show tunes and a deep love for Barry Manilow and the The Bee Gees are many things you could tease me about (and probably do), but I don’t care. Music is a huge part of my…

Just Write: How Are You?

I walk through the halls, my high heels hitting tile and marble. “Nice sweater” and “ooh, I love your scarf” tossed back and forth, smiles attached , and I move on. Normally I’d stop, trade a story or two, catch up or chat for a few moments, but lately, I simply walk past. Ghosts are…

TMT: I’ll Write You a Story, You Sing Me a Love Song

    I’ve been absent from TMT for the past few weeks.(Sorry Jen!) Snow, birthdays and well more snow have been keeping me away but I have also been writing, editing and rewriting parts of THE LOVE STORY OF KIMMY & DAVID. And when I am writing love stories like theirs I have certain albums…
