I love the holidays. They are the most wonderful way to end a year. Lots of good food, friends, family, Christmas music, fancy dinners, cookies, oh the cookies! Holidays are also a time of exhaustion. Shopping, shopping, shopping. Cooking. Baking.... Continue reading

I posted this on Facebook a week or so ago and wanted to post it here to keep my writing here. I seem to regularly post on Facebook rather than here and I need to change that: Yesterday, I was... Continue reading

Did you ever ponder your rambling mind? All of the inane and insane thoughts that run through it at the speed of light, only occasionally pausing on something that is of any significance? No, you say? That's just me? Oh,... Continue reading

Beautiful, Paloma, absolutely beautiful. You are as incredible a writer as you are an attorney. Enjoy this time and maybe this time will become your new you, your new life. Cooking, loving, laughing, relaxing, yoga, kitties and your exquisite writing that just might pay the mortgage after all.

Monday will be four weeks since my Dad left us, my sister holding one of his hands and I, the other. It still doesn't feel real that the first man in my life, a man who has known me longer... Continue reading

I'm sitting at my dad's computer as I write, about to down a pint of Haagen Daaz's (sp?) chocolate ice cream. But first, I wanted to write about Dad. He's in the hospital and I feel him slipping away from... Continue reading

I always have some kind of writing in the works. Much of it is just for my eyes; some of it, I allow others to see. I may write to relieve some kind of angst, or to express feelings I... Continue reading

Sometimes we get overtired, overworked, overwrought. And with those things come consequences. Some get sick, some get run down, some don't sleep, some go crazy. I recently met a grandmother who was raising two of her four grandchildren. She pretty... Continue reading

You express such beauty in your photos. Sometimes I absolutely have to stay away from your blog because I am overcome with emotion and tears because of the way you write, the way you pictorial things. I love your blog, Corey!

I had no idea Liam was video recording himself on this particular day. We had just pulled into the bank drive up window. The child brings me more joy than words can express. Sometimes, there are just not words for... Continue reading
Sometimes life is a breeze and we sail on it like a bird, wings spread, feeling the lift as the air pulls us up, up, and up; or the way a leaf must feel as the wind plucks it from... Continue reading

This morning, I was minding my own business, pacing while waiting for my husband to leave because that's how my mornings are. Not that I'm in any hurry to get him out of here, mind you, but as the morning... Continue reading

My dad taught me to ride my bike. The training wheels came off of the old blue Huffy and he gripped the back of the seat with one hand and held it, running along side of me. All at once, I felt a rush of air as he gave me a final push and let go. I was riding a bike! I glanced over my shoulder to see him smiling and fading in the distance. What we both forgot was that I had no idea how to stop the bike. Frantically, I turned myself to one side and jumped off, leaving the bike to go careening out of control and into a telephone pole. That bicycle was tough, however, and hit many telephone poles, parked cars and trees before I learned how to use the brakes. Thanks for bringing back this wonderful memory for me.

In keeping with my "Variety Show," here's a video I just made yesterday after some fun in the sun with my grandson and his mama. Heat stroke? Maybe. Just plain crazy? Most likely. Delusions of grandeur? Most definitely. Continue reading
