Flash Poetry #1: Little Songs

Okay, I’ll admit it, some of my flash fiction entries were slightly poetic. It just didn’t seem that way when I was writing them. I saw them as stories. It never occurred to me that they were poems. Well, don’t worry, I won’t confuse the two anymore. Flash Fiction and Flash Poetry are now separate…

Hidden Gems

One of the great things about Netflix is their ability to cleverly hide numerous hidden gems within their infinite realm of film and TV classics. These precious hours of entertainment are plentiful, but sometimes hard to find. These secret titles are buried beneath a mountain of popular names and famous faces. Too many options and…

A Reminder

The world is a mess right now. DON’T PANIC. I know it may not seem like it, but it’s going to be okay. Instead of freaking out, take a little time, keep yourself occupied. This is a reminder to . . . 1. Take a walk 2. Read everything 3. Listen to music 5. Bake…

Now Playing: Lake Street Dive – “Good Kisser”

I’m kinda mad at you guys at the moment. You knew about Lake Street Dive this whole time and you didn’t tell me about them. I am really disappointed in you. They are absolutely freakin’ amazing . . . to put it eloquently. I stumbled upon them by sheer happenstance only twenty-four hours ago, but…

From You the Flowers Grow

Whether you’re an artist, a writer, or creative mind, it can be difficult at times to find illumination in a world overflowing with darkness. We look for inspiration in a word, in a thought, an image, or in a song. We search for it everywhere, underneath every hiding spot, even in the oddest of places….

Walk

When winter arrives, it seems like there is no end in sight. Snow is piled high and the air is frosty and painfully frigid. Long treks are deemed unwise, so you and your doggo have to be satisfied by short, temporary excursions. Anything more than a brief walk is blocked and discouraged. You play with…

Thanks, Netflix

I found myself in a very common situation recently. I had filled my daily to-do list with achievable tasks. I had psyched myself up for a day of success. I was all ready for a full day of productivity when I decided to stop for a five minute procrastination break before I began. I checked…

Flash Fiction: Photo Challenge #1

I wanted to try something new today, so I thought I would challenge myself to write a story inspired by a picture, a single image. I had so much fun, I know this will be something I’ll attempt again and again. HAPPY READING! 😀 I stubbornly smoothed the wrinkles out of my ruffled, taffeta dress…

Tired

I’m sitting here, at my desk, cursing myself for thinking I could write a post after I got home late from work. I don’t understand why I continue to think that I can make words magically appear, that I can craft and create, that I can write a few sentences down in haste. That’s not…

Haim “The Steps”

Rejoice, music lovers! The sisters Haim have returned to sweeten our lives with cool beats, melodic treats, and nifty vocals. The renowned trio have finally announced an official release date after months and months of teasing and sporadically dropping snippets off their third album. Women in Music: Part III will debut on April 24th with…

My Aesthetic

In general terms, I’d probably describe my aesthetic as vintage bohemian. If I were being specific, I’d probably describe my aesthetic as colorful blooms, songbirds and birdcages, elegant patterns, black and white prints, stardust and rainbows, fairies, classic film, and fringe. I’ve always been attracted to an unorthodox mix of vivid hues and nostalgic designs….
