Ode to an Old Friend

Thank you old friend...

You have saved me from running into traffic...
You have caused me to play in the traffic of life with abandon...
But mostly you have been my companion when all others have abandoned me.  Please don't leave me. You help me through the tough times by knocking me out and helping me sleep through the worst of it.
You are my companion when the music is bad, or just not my taste, but I can always find the right taste in you.  I can even experiment with you and find freedom without judgement. I hate being judged for trying something new, and you never do.
Thank you top shelf Vodka.

New Year, New You, New Me

Happy New Year!

The 30 Day Blog Challenge begins today.  It is not only the beginning of the year, but the beginning of the challenge.  I did not participate in NaNoWriMo this year and am saddened by not doing so.  I am renewing my dedication to writing, thinking and hopefully sharing thoughts with my peers.

January is my birthday month so it is always a month of reflection and rebirth.  Getting my first book published, planning for some travel and writing significantly more are at the top of the list.

As you may know, I have 3 different blogs... well you probably don't, but I would love it if you did.  So, how about some recommendations on topics?  

The first thirty days are all about thought process, writing and allowing the creative juices to flow.

My first thought is... plan your planning.  Get your planning tools together, your technology synced and let's visualize.

Share your great new discoveries with us, and we will share them out.

Starting Anew...

Je pense... major life changes occur in whatever minute or day you decide to change.  I believe it must first begin within your thinking process.

Make Way for Emergency Vehicles Please

The recent accident covered on the news involving a police officer, a BMW and several other cars in Atlanta makes me think… Today, “je pense” about safety on the roads.

It reminds me of many incidences I have seen that could have lead to an accident. I will be praying for those who were injured, as we all should. My mother and I recently witnessed a fire engine in full emergency mode have to maneuver through traffic that did not move out of his way.  The fire engine even had to come to a complete stop at an intersection and slow to under 30 mph on the street.  The truck had full lights, siren and horn activity going, but drivers still did not pull to the right.  My mother commented, "you should blog about this."  

So I am... See the Rants page for the full article...
