More Than Your Body

You get up in the morning. You probably go take a shower, and then you get a look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like what you see reflected back at you? If you’re like most people, the answer is no. Too fat, too thin, man- where did those saddlebags on my thighs come…

Reach Out and Touch the Sky

As you read this post today, I want you to keep in mind the following questions:   What would you do if you could do anything? What motivates you? What inspires you? What keeps you from achieving your goals?   My friends, this has been an educational week. It is becoming very apparent that true…

Treading the Waters (Restarting Again Part 2)

A great thing about blogging is that it helps one be introspective. For some of us, we could use a little less introspection and a lot more living.

Recipe Time! Egg-free chicken fried rice

I’m going to try to do something a little different here. I enjoy cooking, and I love trying to make foods that will suit my dietary needs. With that in mind, I’m going to try and start posting the occasional recipe. In time, I’ll be fancy and organized enough to even take pictures of the…

To put it in Buddhist terms, I’ve been making friends with my demons. There’s been a fair bit of crying involved in the past week thanks…

It seems that my life is developing to the point where I’m only capable of updating once a month. I’ll try to tell myself that at least there’s some sort of regularity. When we last left off, it was on the verge of doing something monumental in my life in its current state. I left…

The Winds of Change

My life has been changing in a myriad of ways. I’m finally comfortable with all the material changes from the last month, but now the changes are becoming personal. After three seasons with the chorus, I’m still adjusting to not having my Sunday nights taken over by rehearsal. It’s bittersweet- there are people I really…

There and back again

How time flies when you’re having questionable fun. I started the month of February frantically preparing to go on the trip to Costa Rica and perform in the showcase for the Tuesday pole class. I found a fantastic shade to start dying my hair. I discovered that I’m hovering within ten (yes, 10) pounds of…
