I think it’s time to order new sneakers

One thing that’s great about the internet is u can look up when you bought something. I do HIIT, strength training & yoga @ home which is THE CHEAPEST form of exercise you can do. Even cut rate gyms involve gas money, and if you go downtown (which I’d never do) potentially parking. Never mind the fact that in today’s gyms, there’s often a base … Continue reading I think it’s time to order new sneakers

My Old Clothes, 1

It started with a tweet, but I think I’ll make this a series. I’ve long been prone to a more “Derelique” form of wardrobe. During my last, lucrative and solid, eleven year gig in NYC, I never had to meet with buyers, ie., be more presentable than normally inclined. In addition to that, once I’d started the decade-long India cycle, I was made well aware … Continue reading My Old Clothes, 1

Magick, Mediation, Motivation – or lack thereof

Magick & Meditation Month was pretty much a bust I don’t feel like I accomplished anything and, in fact, I have regressed terribly in terms of other kinds of personal discipline, like exercise. What I was most hoping was that daily ritual would – yes “magically” – help my real life efforts in the interminable struggle to make ANY sort of money in Godforsaken Podunk. That … Continue reading Magick, Mediation, Motivation – or lack thereof

Researching Sock Companies

I was totally bummed out by being on Mississippi and downtown yesterday. The best time I had was at a plant nursery that had some great arrangements and some gorgeous chickens, wandering around their courtyard. I spent mere minutes at my destination and then got back on bus 4 for downtown. There is no THERE, there Well duh – when in or near Portland, just stick to … Continue reading Researching Sock Companies

I had a drama-ridden full moon yesterday

Not in a pleasant way, unfortunately! It was a lovely day and things had been going so smoothly, but then… I made the fatal mistake of sharing some beer and a salad I’d prepared, after having forgotten a small amount of cat litter on the table outside. It’d been mentioned once, but until very recently it’d been too cool to eat outside, and the amount … Continue reading I had a drama-ridden full moon yesterday

Life in Podunk is a constant scrambling for small bits of cash

So… it was my birthday Saturday & I’m a big believer in celebrating birthdays for at least a week. This used to be a practicality in NYC, where I had a good income and a wide-ranging circle of friends. You’d need to get to all of them! This year, of course, I launched a Go Fund Me to get help with my Creative Cloud, and … Continue reading Life in Podunk is a constant scrambling for small bits of cash

Writing, sock design, and wanting to paint

Remembered today that I was supposed to have begun again, if only temporarily, a daily seated meditation since the last new moon. That was last Saturday and I haven’t sat once. Oops. Next one is February 4th. I’ll try again. That’s been my repeating theme in life since I moved. I’m in a slightly better mood about it today than I’ve been lately, especially last Monday. I … Continue reading Writing, sock design, and wanting to paint
