Learning Balance: Moving Edition

I’m hoping I am nearing the end of a month-long process of moving. I got the keys last month, but the process has been slow going. I thought it would be quick like 1-2-3, and then boom. Done. But this isn’t the case. Moving has become another exercise in life, and one which I’m strugglingContinue reading “Learning Balance: Moving Edition”

My Goals For Writing in 2022.

I started last year with a resolution to grow my writing. This included growing my freelance writing efforts and trying to grow more profitable.

Thanksgiving Nostalgia

As I grew older, I’ve been feeling myself become more nostalgic. I don’t yearn for memories or really good food or falling asleep at the dinner table (which has happened to me before).

You know, that gray-white that electronics at that era were. It reminded me of a Hewitt-Packer, was it was justContinue reading “Part 1: Is There Any Value in an eReader?”

I Walked in a Crowd for the First Time Since March 2020

Last Sunday, I almost didn’t go. I almost talked myself out of going. But I didn’t want to waste money on another ticket. I was going to go.

This past weekend, I went out into myContinue reading “I Walked in a Crowd for the First Time Since March 2020”

New Update, New Look

I don’t know what came over me this weekend. I had been working on making Medium a more concrete thing and trying to refine my Fiverr gigs in landing that ever elusive first client. I started thinking and listing all the creative avenues I had started in 2021 and reflected back on the original goalContinue reading “New Update, New Look”
