I scare easily. Just yesterday, I was frightened by a trio of bunnies hopping out of some bushes and a slice of red pepper that threatened to fall out of my fajita. Obviously I’m a bit too skittish for my own good, so a couple of weeks ago I read a piece at a story-telling event. Each […]

it is kinda crazy

It is more than kinda crazy – it is very crazy – but I signed up to do NaNoWriMo. An acronym I can never figure out how to say, for an task that seems foolish. National Novel Writing Month. Write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. I haven’t written fiction since my one […]

three natures, naturally

When I moved my domain from gogoshebogo.com to threenatures.com a couple of years ago, I had a clear idea of what I meant by three natures. At least in my head – I never managed to make it clear to anyone else. I have three Etsy shops, and I saw a correlation between the three […]

a thousand words and pictures

A picture is worth a thousand words. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. It is often difficult to find the words needed to capture a feeling, an image, an experience. Sometimes it feels nearly impossible. Pictures, then, feel like a real time saver. Uh, don’t try to visualize what I’m […]

a bang up job

One of my clearest childhood memories is when, at age five, fueled by the injustice of not being able to do what I wanted with my hair, I took a pair of my mom’s sewing scissors, crawled under the dining room table, and cut my own bangs. As a kid, my large forehead and skinny […]

I could not remember the word last night, alth0ugh I laid awake for quite awhile trying. It finally came to me during my yoga practice this morning, when I should not have been thinking about words, even if they were words my yoga teacher had spoken during led class the day before. Articulate each movement. […]

Well, a week or so into my “blogeverydamnday” experiment and I can definitely tell: my ideas get glommed up together like crazy if I don’t sort them out every damn day. To anyone who might be reading this, I both apologize and thank you. I’m writing for me, but there is something about sharing the […]

I ended up missing an entire week of yoga practice due to a head cold. I was so happy to be back on at the shala today. Unlike the messy multi-tasking of my daily life, ashtanga has a clear beginning, middle, and end. Just like a good story: The sun salutations introduce you to the […]

I’ve been working towards this point all day – taking care of errands, of business – all with the idea that I would spend a quiet hour writing. My thoughts were (for me) fairly organized and calm. I only got a little frazzled by the summer traffic I hadn’t anticipated. I made it out of the […]

different names for the same thing

Different names for the same thing. It seems like I just wrote a blog with that title. Oh, yeah – because I did. But apparently it displeased the WordPress gods and was deleted by accident, before I even published it. And then the last published post managed to get deleted, too.  Yet here I am, trying […]
