Endurance

Endurance

I've been reading more than usual, focusing on books that look impressive on the shelf, but haven't been touched for decades, or never touched at all. I've always had a habit of gathering and hoarding information in the forms of books, journals, smart people...

Recover Our Sight

Recover Our Sight

I wish I had written this ten days ago. Yes, ten days ago when I only felt weary from being locked down in my home, surrounded by my family at all times for weeks on end. I love them. And I’m a writer. Writer’s need alone time. Quiet. No distractions. Freedom to live...

Every Different Day

Every Different Day

I listen to a lot of podcasts and radio programs. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard the voiceover of the next ad start with the words, “Now that you have free time on your hands, learn a new language … try some new recipes … do a puzzle a week … read a book...

Who the Heck was Saint Valentine, Anyway?

Who the Heck was Saint Valentine, Anyway?

My husband and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this year. Why is it when I say, “Gee, it doesn’t feel like that long!” he looks at me like I’m crazy. Does that mean the years have been harder on him than they have on me? Well, too bad. We all have our...

Sufficient Character?

Suffering from Creativity Squelch

Suffering from Creativity Squelch

It seems apropos to write about creativity given the recent struggles I’ve suffered (oh woe is me) as I attempt to complete my first fiction project as Kathryn Wise. Inspired by Henry Drummond’s chapter entitled Clairvoyance in his book The Ideal Life, I chose to...

The Creative Voice of the Subconscious Mind

The Creative Voice of the Subconscious Mind

I’ve gotta say, it’s a little spooky. This whole subconscious mind phenomenon isn’t exactly new to me, but I’ve come to experience it in ways I’d never imagined before. Don’t worry, I’m not crazy. At least I don’t think I’m crazy. Note to self: ask therapist if I’m...

Opportunities

Opportunities

I’m taking a course on The Future. Normally I wouldn’t go for something with such an obscure title, but the author who’s leading it is like a living legend amongst my tiny group of fellow authors. He does these little 5 to 8-minute videos of himself free-talking on a...
