Processing… (alternately titled “A mini autobiography leading up to my current existential crisis”)

Gosh it's easy to get knocked off track. Today is Friday, and here in Texas, it's the first normal feeling day I have personally had all week thanks to the winter weather we had starting last weekend. That's actually not true - the winter weather had very little to do with the absolute standstill we… Continue reading Processing… (alternately titled “A mini autobiography leading up to my current existential crisis”)

I was in no way solicited or paid for this post (because let's be honest - they'd likely pay someone with a little more clout).* Last week, I posted about stumbling across a local nonprofit business called Oluna while watching… Continue reading An unsolicited plug for a local business

Hope (an Advent post – kind of)

*I am not a historically religious person, nor am I in any way a Biblical scholar, so please forgive my elementary interpretation of all things theological in nature as I attempt to educate myself.* Yesterday marked the first Sunday of Advent, the 4 Sundays before Christmas that focus on waiting and preparing for the coming… Continue reading Hope (an Advent post – kind of)
