The Sleepless Season

The Sleepless Season

The main trouble with insomnia is that it perpetuates itself. The longer it goes on, the more desperately you crave a good night’s sleep. The more you find yourself thinking if I could just get one good night’s sleep, all my problems would go away. Unfortunately, that encourages the insomnia to continue rather than driving …

Writers are not the Villains

Writers are not the Villains

Every now and then a post creeps across my tumblr dash in which readers express a desire to ‘steal’ their favourite novel characters from their respective author in order to ‘shield’ them. These posts usually involve keeping the writer at bay until they ‘learn how to properly take care of’ said characters. Subsequent replies discuss …

Positive Inner Voice

After a recent bout of Insomnia, my eyes are open to a lot of unhealthy practices in my life. Most are stress related, but stress can be generated by our thoughts and attitudes. A small problem can easily become a large one, a string of ill luck can easily turn into a bad day, and …

A Life Resumed

A Life Resumed

A year ago we packed our life into storage and flew across the ocean for an amazing adventure. It wasn’t easy, selling our first house on short notice, leaving behind everything we spent a decade building, but we did it because we’ve always believed in following our dreams. I never imagined marrying a teacher would …

To Boldly Go

I mentioned a few weeks ago that Star Trek, in many of its incarnations, is one of my all-time favorite TV shows. One of my first blog posts detailed the inspiration and lessons I picked up from watching Doctor Who. When I stop to think about it, Star Trek has taught me so much more. …

A Meat Loaf for Every Moment

A Meat Loaf for Every Moment

Music has always played an important role in my life. In high school, I participated in both the chorus and the band, and that participation resulted in some of the most stressful and most memorable moments of my life. I’m almost always listening to music. I listen to music when I travel, when I relax, …

Excess Baggage

Excess Baggage

When my husband got invited to work in England for a year, we packed our bags, sold our house and crossed the ocean. It wasn’t half as simple as it sounds, but we got there in the end. The first part of the process ended up more difficult than much of what came later. It’s …
