Five Things from The Artist's Way

Every once in awhile I wonder where a book I own might be hiding in our many bookcases. I wonder if I even still have it! When I mentioned Morning Pages in my notebook post, I got to wondering where my copy of The Artist's Way was. So I did my usual "scan the bookcases" thing, where I... um... scan the bookcases. Voila! I pulled it out and flipped it open. And boom, there was... Read more →

Rainy Night Love List

It's fixin' to be a rainy, stormy night. We've already had one taste of a downpour, but more is evidently in store. Time for a love list -- not necessarily one related to rain, but just because. I love: Italian Ice on a hot afternoon. Well, anytime actually. Friday Night Lights. I am going to miss this show so much. Little perfect moments in TV shows that indicate great acting -- like one in season... Read more →

At Long Last, A Love List

I have not done one of these in weeks and weeks and it's high time. As I was walking home from the bus stop on this perfect afternoon, I realized that I've worrying a lot this past week. I've worried about Joe, about work, about money, about everything and anything, It didn't occur to me that I'd been worrying, but when I woke up with headaches -- really, more like face-aches -- every day this...

Rainy Day Love List

It's been raining all day, from a light drizzle to a steady downpour, and it looks like it's going to rain all weekend. Whenever it rains like this, I start humming the old Sesame Street song: It's a rainy day, it's a rainy day! It's raining outside and I can't go out to play. Why do we need the rain anyway? Then the song goes on to enumerate all the reasons why rain is good.... Read more →

Brain Trip Love List

I'm caught in a snag, trying to do something wild and creative and cool with a project -- but I can't quite get my fabu ideas out of my brain and into the computer. I have faith, though. Anyway, time for a Love List, because maybe if I focus my mind on things I love, something will trip my brain into solution mode. Here's hoping. I love: Playoff hockey. Go Red Wings! Hoist that Stanley... Read more →

Post Playoffs Love List

I'm still a little sad that my Capitals got beat down by the Team Who Shall Not Be Named on Wednesday, but there are many many things that I'm loving this Friday. I love my team and I love my fellow fans. When two minutes remained in the game and it was clear that a comeback was not in the cards, the entire crowd rose and gave the team a standing ovation for the rest... Read more →

Vernal Equinox Love List

It's Friday AND the first day of astronomical Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere, a win-win if there ever was one. Yeah, it's kinda cold here in the Nation's Capital, but it's blatantly sunny so I can forgive Mother Nature for her chilly attitude, especially since the redbuds and forsythia are already blooming. That kinda takes the chill off, yes it does. Anyway, to celebrate springtime and all sorts of other things, here's a Love... Read more →

I Made My Deadline Love List

I just sent a big project off for review, so I'm feeling free! At least as free as you can feel when you know that the excrement will surely hit the propeller on Monday, when I have to turn my attention to another MUST DO NOW project. As we used to say in the circus, "It's a hell of a life!" Anyway, it's Friday and I'm feeling like a Love List. First and foremost, watch... Read more →

Super Bowl Weekend Love List

Yes, the Super Bowl is Sunday and I am lazily rooting for the Arizona Cardinals, mostly because they are the underdogs, but also because I cannot bring myself to root for a team that is from the same city as the Penguins. So, in honor of the Super Bowl, I present this week's Love List. I love: Rick Rolls, especially the one that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade organizers pulled. This extremely interesting project from... Read more →
