One week after I worked my last shift at Starbucks, I put together a list of things I do and don't miss about working there.

Where I come from, seeing robins in the winter is a harbinger of spring. Tonight when I saw them, they were a harbinger of something else. 
photo by Tim Street I heard them before I saw them. Cheep-cheep. Cheep-cheep. Cheep-cheep. As Dakota and I rounded the cul-de-sac sidewalk, we came upon, by my quick count in the fading light, at least a dozen robins. Then, w...

Today, I'm guest posting at Q Place's blog about the power of noticing others as you go about your day. Never underestimate the good you can do with a few kind words. They changed me that day.

Why I love a specific Christmas carol this year in particular. Please share your favorite in the comments!
I've been quiet in this space for a while. This has been a challenging season for me, and I've had difficulty putting the struggle into words. I feel I've found my voice again. Thanks for your patience. Y’all, I grew up ...

Christmastime is here, as the Charlie Brown gang sang for the 50th time this week. My heart has not been full of happiness and cheer, and I have sensed that there has been little "fun for all," despite the fact that this is supposed to be our "favorite time of year." Pull up a seat at my Blue Table today and hear how my heart has wrestled this week. Then, I'd be honored to hear about where your heart is this week.
This is what Dakota did to her bed under the blue table this morning. I'm not upset; it's a re-purposed 15-year-old sleeping bag of Michael's. Still, I was confused. Why would she want to rip up her bed? What's going through ...

Arrears may not be a word in your daily vocabulary but as I think about it relates to Thanksgiving I realize there's a correlation. Read about it today.

My day started with thoughts about the very slim differences between faith and doubt. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

like everyone, i'm thinking about change during this first week of 2016. while i enjoy sorting coins and calculating what i have to work with, figuring out what to change in my life isn't as easy to sort out. what if you adopted my philosophy and let someone else bring change to your life?
I like counting change. I'm not sure why, but I like sorting loose coins, organizing them in stacks, and tallying the amount. The new year always seems to bring about similar opportunities for calculating a different kind of ...

Advent has been a struggle this year. I've felt a heaviness and needed a tangible reminder of Love in this dark world. If you too have wrestled to find joy in the midst of the sadness that seems pervasive in the world right now, please read this today and know you're not alone.

If you don't know this about me, you should: I'm a word nerd. I love interesting words and enjoy incorporating them into my everyday vernacular. This past week, I used one I haven't used in a while: ARREARS. It means being in...

Story
Tagline
Writing helps clarity emerge from confusion and transforms the noise into music my soul can sing.
Introduction
I've always loved words and people. I worked as a journalist and wove my two loves together to share stories. I was blessed to be a stay-at-home mother from 1994 to 2013, when our only son graduated from high school.

I'm returning to my love of words and people and offering my writing as a way to help myself and others find clarity and transformation.
