I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately. Usually, that’s fodder for writing – where I put jumbled to keyboard or pencil to paper and I learn what’s swirling about. I come to realize what was trying to be discovered, said. That’s how writing is for me.           Usually. I’ve …

I will just come right out and say it: I’m not the size I once was.

But here’s what I’ve decided (and what I think we should tell ourselves, as women):

I sit in my corner. Sigh-filled and thankful. Yet weary and a little weaker for the wear this morning.      I know my weakness opens the door for two frequent visitors. It’s up to me to choose who is welcome. I have this reading list of blogs on my home page (sound familiar fellow …
