How To Make The Perfect Cup of Coffee

Originally posted on James Radcliffe:
Once upon a time… On a sunny Sunday morning I made a change to the way I make my morning coffee.  Which is not that interesting.  What is interesting is: when I took the first taste I almost dropped the mug because it was soooooo good.  It was the best cup of coffee I could remember…

My Truth about Yoga

I’ll admit it. I love yoga, really.  I love the music, the movement, and especially the nap at the end.  I actually enjoy getting into that meditative place and finding comfort in the pain as I stretch out tired muscles and move forward to the next pose. Yoga is incredibly therapeutic. Many mornings I will get up earlier than the…

Lost

When I close my eyes there is a brief second that I can almost feel you.  So I close my eyes often, hoping that if I do it enough there will be a whole minute in the day when I don’t feel this thing that I do now. People walking by might thing I am sleepy and need a moment…

Sail away

I think about my childhood sometimes, trying to make peace of it and understanding.

Thoughts About Being Called An Expert

  I was recently requested to join a team of other writers who contribute their writing talents to a very well-known web group. When the request first came in, I initially rejected it. I am a writer, I write because that is my passion and who I am. But when I thought about it more, the offer and the possibilities…

“Sometimes writing is running downhill, your fingers jerking behind you on the keyboard the way your legs do when they can’t quite keep up with gravity.”

Ready… Set… Move On!

  Ready… set… go! That’s sort of how I feel right now.  I took some time off to put my head together after some recent moments in my personal life that just seemed to be sucking up my thoughts. But in the back of my head, I just felt like I just wanted to get back to work, back here…
