Day 2 Blogging Identity Quest Leads to New Friend!

  After returning from Las Vegas, I was so excited to work on my new "not yet launched" creativity blog wanting to add something new. So I set out on a blog template surfing venture. Finally my efforts lead me to a favorite pick. Unfortunately, the theme turned out to be defective and closed down …

Day 1 “Blogging Identity Quest” and “Happy New Year!”

My husband and I had a wonderful New Year's celebration in Las Vegas. As the clocked ticked down marking the end of 2009, a video show streamed overhead with visual memories of the past year while fireworks lit up the sky. I awoke this morning excited about 2010.   In line with my blogging identity quest, …

Day -1 In Search of my Blogging Identity

The past week has been filled with fun activities. We enjoyed fabulous times together eating and visiting. One of the highlights was meeting a new addition to the …

Selah

Off to the editor! There are solemn moments in a writer's life requiring Selah, pause and calmly think of this. These moments request a photograph in order to preserve for remembering. Yesterday culminated in such an amazing moment. After years of gathering life experiences into a loose leaf manuscript, I ceremoniously wrapped the bundle with …

Real World Creativity

                   Last night, I awakened thinking about my students. Teaching has been rough this year. "In your face" defiance, disruptive behavior, and verbal outbursts occur daily. I understand that many of them suffer from the ill affects of gang violence, foster care, and other challenges; but, knowing this does not make my blood pressure lower. Nevertheless, hopes to provide artistic opportunities found me …
