Things I Never Regret

Monday, May 30, 2016

Our theme this week is regrets, but here is the thing–i’m not big on regret. We are all human and we all make choices both good and not so good and we learn from them.

So, instead, i’ve decided to share a few things I never regret doing: hanging out with friends and family eating…

Monday, May 23, 2016

  Something you should know about me: I am not a big fan of categorization. Of course I am made up of all sorts of sortable facts. You can put me in the female subgroup and the writers subgroup and the cat owners subgroup and the old time banjo players subgroup and the people who hate the taste of cucumbers so much they can’t eat lettuce that has been leaning…

My lack of memory goes for my own life as well as the stories I consume, so when I read that this week’s theme was childhood memories, I felt at…

You don’t need to know me very long…
