And now for something completely different

Tarotetry.

Remember that amazing writing workshop I went to last December? One of the things the lovely Alexandra Franzen did was give us a writing prompt in the form of a tarot card. She showed us the card, gave a quick description and then we had to dash off a poem in a few minutes . . . → keep reading

Serendipity Is Where You Look For It

This afternoon I sat down to write a blog post, but my mind was empty. Or rather, every idea that came to mind was quickly dismissed. So, I decided to shift my perspective and take a walk. I might get an idea while out in the world. If nothing else, the walk would be a . . . → keep reading

The Secret Power of Envy

I have a confession to make. Some of the most amazing things I’ve done in my life were motivated by envy.

“Move Your Eyeballs Away From Your Brain”

“What? Did he say what I think he said?

“What does that even mean?

“How am I supposed to even do that?

“It’s not possible… well, crap…

“Okay, I ask people to imagine weird stuff all the time. I’ll just imagine I could do it.

“Oh wow…ohh….”

Time to Vote!

I don’t know what I was thinking. Oh, I’ll just ask people for ideas, and then I’ll pick three and announce it. Easy peasy.

Ha.
