As soon as I sat down to write this post, I heard The Von Trapp Family singing: So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieuAdieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu That’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Little Gretl! That staircase! Anyway. I […]

    my one word prompt {december twenty-two}

    December. December! I’d say I feel…ready. Ready for my last month with My Word. (Though elements of Engage will stay with me, for sure.) That’s some of what I’ll do this month, in fact. Sit with this ‘capsule’ of my word. A cheat sheet of what I did this year…and what will I bring with […]

    my one word prompt {november twenty-two}

    I can’t believe it! I did it again. (Well, not again.) (Sort of again.) (More like simultaneously?) Let me back up: In my last post, I told you how I screwed up logistics…at a friend’s expense…a couple of weeks ago. Which was bad enough! Listen to what else I did: Lincoln is flying back to […]

The link will be live all week, through Sunday. Thanks for coming! My October word work was…mundane. At best. (How’s that for a hook!?!) It was much-needed, hit-me-over-the-head […]

    my one word prompt {october twenty-two}

    This little maple leaf caught my eye on a walk a few days ago. (Contrasting colors in nature tend to hijack my attention. Coleus, for example. And lichen against a host.) On Wednesday morning, I left my van at a service station for its NYS state inspection and took a quiet walk while I waited. […]

    my one word prompt {september twenty-two}

    At first I thought I’d do my usual, come September — a ‘back to basics’ with My One Word. In a building-blocks, back-to-school kind of a way. It’s what I had every intention of doing when I sat down to write this prompt; I’ve been looking forward to it, actually! (In the same way I […]

    my one word prompt {august twenty-two}

    I’m not going to say one. darn. word. about how fast this summer is going for me. But I will give myself a prompt to address it. Hmph! Because…I love the four seasons. I like the smells, difference in weather + light, the food + drinks + sweater weights that go with it. In summer? […]
