In times like these, we need the past, because for this one, shining moment in time, it may be the only thing we have total control over.
I have no idea where this year seems to have gone. The semester is flying by at work. I am trying to keep my head above water, and my mind and body relaxed. I’m fighting my way into relaxing. It’s been counterproductive, yet I continue to do it. One way this manifests itself is through… Continue reading Poem, Poetry,
Recently, I wrote a wrap-up article about CCA Kids media activities during Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness month. The folks at Face Equality International posted my words on their blog. It came out well. Check out what we did to raise awareness during July. A look back on Craniofacial Awareness Month And don’t forget, every… Continue reading I’ve Gone International!
Many writers, creatives, and journalists like to look back on their year of work and reflect back on its impact. Below are the top seven blog posts grouped by category.

I know I am making a difference, does that make it… Continue reading Meditating on Work

I find something new every time I open up these document files with multiples pieces that sit layer upon layer on… Continue reading Perspective and Paths From the Late ’90s
Things have been busy these days. Time for fun blogging is few and far between. I’m also trying to revamp the site, add a few more bells and whistles, menus, a newsletter, so this site is a bit “under construction.” (Thank you for your patience.) Right now I am contributing some fiction, poetry, and… Continue reading Everything That Rose, Finally Converged
Do I still have it? Do I still have the chops? or have I been writing too much sports news? Or will I really be able to let go and tap into my creativity? Are all my great writing days behind me? Was I good because my inhibitions, and anxious thoughts were tampered thanks to… Continue reading Do I Still Have It?
