Random Thoughts

What’s the balance between aiming for perfection and aiming realistically? What’s the balance between pushing for something you really want and knowing that your choices may just be plain trash and you need to let go? What’s the balance between loving someone and just caring really really much? I wish I knew the answer to…

Spring

Dry ice melts as sun hits Snow slush instead of pellets Tree buds and stray flowers Fill the street with colors Spring is near Winter coats and leather jackets Tucked and folded in the back of closets Out with the boots in, with the mules Time for barbecues and sunshades Spring is here

The Violets of March by Sarah Jio

 This is my first Sarah Jio’s book, and  I was very impressed. There’s drama, romance, suspense, and tragedy. In short, it’s a tearjerker. The book is about Emily, a recent divorcee, and burnt-out author. Her ex-husband of five years was leaving her for a younger woman, and they were already engaged. The last straw for…

The past is gone.

Have you ever been held back from doing some things because you think you’ve achieved more in the past? If you haven’t, I have. I know not everyone has this issue, some of y’all are perfect and extra self motivated, so put together, excellent time management and organizational skills, can work in terrible situations, all…
