So, why the oatmeal life? 1) Overnight oats are quick and convenient. While I clear up my kitchen in the evenings, it takes … Continue reading

day 3: can writing about prosperity change my life?
Through the magic of the internet, I stumbled upon a project that the author Janice McLeod was doing way before she published “Paris Letters.” I know she was a fan of the morning pages and the transformative effects of doing Julia Cameron’s book, “The Artist’s Way.” Two months ago, I decided to go on a … Continue reading
day 2: can writing change my life?
I knew that this would be a fairly slow start. The last time I popped open this blog was last week. And maybe that will be my rhythm for now. Showing up to this computer once a week is better than NEVER showing up. And, I’m still committed to this crazy ass goal of writing … Continue reading
1/100: Can writing create a change?// Notes from the Storm
Day 1/100: So, after a good solid amount of time in silence away from my blog, here I am again. Why am I here? I would like to blame three things:1) Low-key crying in a spin class– yes, I do realize that this can be a bit embarrassing to admit. 2) Tropical Storm Imelda 3) … Continue reading
Restful Holidays and Leaping into the New Year
Farewell 2018! And, well hello there, 2019. It was so nice to end my busy year on a restful and more restorative tone.

Day 12/28: How did Guatemala influence my creativity?
For the next two posts in this project, I’m sharing how certain places (Texas on Day 11 and Guatemala on Day 12) influenced my creativity. Even when I want to shut that part of my brain off, the need to be creative oftentimes pursues me back. It can be from seeing how the light hits the side of the … Continue reading
Reflections on Living in Guatemala
I have a hummus dealer. (Yes, it is absolutely ridiculous to admit. And, just go with it.) I have a hummus dealer who not only makes the best cilantro hummus ever, but the bloke is a tall glass of water. And, it’s an attractiveness that has never gone to his head. Nobody sent him the … Continue reading
