Daily Distractions

Welcome! I'm a writer who keeps a blog.  Here you'll find an unpolished collection of personal stories, educational pieces, and one-line zingers. Like all writers, I have a fierce curiosity and write about everything, from humorous stories about two high-energy dogs to serious, but uplifting, essays on my challenges with Lyme disease.  This blog has been a reflection of my real voice and a sandbox for my creativity for over 18 years. You might laugh. You might learn something. Either way, you'll find a pleasant distraction from life's daily stressors. For my professional pieces, look through my portfolio to see a broader range of writing.

Happy Loki-Versary!

Happy Anniversary to our best friend! Eleven years ago, on Memorial Day weekend, we made that big drive up to San Francisco to meet you. I'll never forget what went through my head as you barked your first words at us. While you scared the bejesus out of me with your bravado I saw deep […]

Searching for Something

"Where is it? Where did the weekend go?" Ever find yourself lost? I know it's a random question. I mean, lost, in terms of where you fit in the world. This is a question that hounds both Loki and me.

It's Friday I'm In Love

Lately, I've had a bit of anxiety over the pups. They are both fine and quite healthy for seniors. They don't act much like seniors. They still demand their daily walks and adventures. I'm convinced daily exercise is what keeps them spry.  The problem is me. I'm the one who aged much faster than they […]
