We have a chance to change business as usual, to make more conscious choices. Let’s not go back to a broken and deadly paradigm. Let’s move forward toward a society that lifts all of us.
Now that we’ve all been holed up, hunkered down, and banned from going places for over a month, you’re probably tired of looking at the same four walls and are ready for something new to gaze upon. So why not buy a print from my photography site? This photo is one of several currently available…Continue reading Look at Something New
Well hello there! It’s been a minute since I’ve been here. The freelance hustle is non-stop and, well, this became fallow land. Anyway, we’re at the height of hurricane season (not to be confused with Hurricanes Season, which will get underway in a few weeks). In fact, we already had Hurricane Dorian hit North Carolina…Continue reading Pets Are Family: Include Them In Your Emergency Plan
The azaleas in the WRAL gardens started blooming a few weeks ago, so I took a field trip to have a look. Photos will come later, once I have a chance to finish my editing.
As you’ve seen in my #WhatsForDinner posts, I’ve been sharing many of my recent cooking escapades. While I typically don’t bake a whole lot (other than occasionally tossing in some cornbread muffins), it suddenly became important to me to bake whole wheat bread. I don’t eat a lot of bread, though I do enjoy toast…Continue reading Baking Bread And Grieving
All righty, then. It’s taken me a while to get around to this post. Sometimes other projects and Real Life just demand more attention. (And also I’m finding myself more and more dissatisfied using WordPress as a content system, but that’s for another rant.) I look up at the cork board above my desk and…Continue reading The Raleigh World: One Year
Last night’s Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse was a gorgeous sight! Alas, it occurred directly overhead here in my neck of the woods and I just didn’t find quite the right spot to capture it. Also, it was really cold outside. By the time the eclipse reached its peak, my feet and legs were DONE…Continue reading About Last Night
The Journey began. My goodness, I look so exhausted. I WAS exhausted! I had only given myself a couple of days between ending my office job and leaving town and ran balls-to-the-wall right to the end. I woke up around 2:45 that morning with a massive headache and we had to be up (well the…Continue reading One Year Ago Today
I haven’t looked at the legislation to confirm this, but I’m pretty sure it’s compulsory to eat black-eyed peas with collard greens and cornbread on New Year’s Day. While I was watching WRAL last week, they had a segment with a recipe for a black-eyed peas, collards, and cornbread casserole that looked interesting. Thank goodness…Continue reading What’s For Dinner: A Southern New Year’s Tradition
Wow. We’re closing in on an entire year in Raleigh. It still blows my mind that I actually moved across the United States. With two cats. (Who hate car rides.) I have yet to get over to the beaches but at least I no longer have to constantly remind myself that the ocean is EAST…Continue reading The Raleigh World: Eleven Months
