Painting Sasquatch

By | Heather | No Comments

I’m starting to try stuff I haven’t done to see if I can do it. Last weekend I found a picture of a Van Gogh Night Sky with Sasquatch. It’s my favorite painting and inspired my ankle tattoo but I wondered if I had what it takes to paint it myself. I used to paint all the time and like it. I just not wonderful at it. I’m ok. Decent. It’s relaxing. And I did it. I made my own version while trying to follow along. I like to buy chunky canvases from goodwill. At $3 and two inches thick-…

Time, Time Everywhere is Time

By | Food for thought, Heather | No Comments

Time. You can share it, donate it, commit it, dominate it, sell it and cherish it. It spends all the same, alone or together. Where were you when 9/11 happened? This is a question that everyone has an answer to because they spent it in that moment of realty with you regardless of where they were and it brought you to a shared moment of emotional connection. I think of the singular moments I spend alone in time and all the moments I spend, like currency, at big events in time with thousands of people sharing that moment. Yet, the…

Keep on Keeping on

Things the mean girl in my head says to me: Why do I spend all this free time on building web posts and podcasts? I’m already sitting for my job as it is and now I sit in the same position even longer to do it. I bet people think you’re crazy for doing it too and are tired of you talking about it. Me, in response to my own worst critic to nicely shut up: Why do I write and say things in a permanent record format? ie podcasts and public website entries of thoughts, ideas and beliefs? Because…

Just the Facts, Ma’am

By | Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

There’s alot of things we know, we either don’t think about it or weren’t paying attention. Here are statements I think we all, as Americans united, can agree are factual. Fact: We cannot choose our gender, race, family or intrinsic qualities. Fact: We know there’s a ladder and a ceiling. Some have further to climb, some climb anyway and some had help from those who climbed on their behalf. Fact: We know in 2005 the Supreme Court ordered the Ten Commandments to be removed from courtrooms all over the south. Fact: We know in 2012 Obama made the biggest funding…

Staying Safe during Masked Destruction DIY

By | Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

Many of my friends and neighbors have been #SafeAtHome during the Pandemic which has led to many home improvement projects. I’ve not had the #AloneTogether experience, but that’s not a criticism. I did get some days here or there to work from home and saved alot of money not going out or traveling for vacations. So I, like many, am tackling home improvement projects with the bonus cash earned by what I’ve named Forced Frugality. I happen to be very privileged to have found my dude. My hombre. My love of a lifetime. My partner in crime. He also happens…

Putting the ‘X’ in Anxiety

By | Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

I wanted to take a walk. This wasn’t my first walk since you know, this. But it was my first walk in a few days of possibilities to do it again. I used my yard as my physical activity lately with sunny, spring days. I just wanted a walk. Headspace. A good playlist as I Appreciate every clear, pain-free breath of fresh air. Or so I hoped. Then it became a jog and short cut back. Just go home, I thought. I’m a people pleaser, I get it. I’m the one that will go out of the way to ease…
