My Jeans Are On!


It’s working, yo! I woke up in the morning light, I pulled on my jeans and they felt all right. I pulled my blue jeans on, I pulled my old blue jeans on!

I mentioned the other day that I’ve been struggling with my depression, and as a way to self-soothe I’ve been eating more than I should, drinking more than I should, and spending way more money than I should. Continue reading “My Jeans Are On!”


Feeling Good

Let this be your inspiration for the day. I know it’s guiding me.

Birds flying high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River running free, you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine, you know how I feel
Scent of the pine, you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel


Breathe, breathe in the air
Don’t be afraid to care
Leave but don’t leave me
Look around, choose your own ground

Why I’ll Never Support Another Dog Rescue

Last Fall, our department found itself in the rather unusual position of having to hire a new graphic designer. The person who was leaving was retiring and had more than thirty years of experience in our organization, so the dilemma was how to fill the position. Do we hire someone with similar experience so that jobs could continue to be handled with a certain level of expertise? Or, do we bring in someone with less experience but who would have room to grow and who might bring new ideas to the table? We settled on something in between and made five years of experience the minimum requirement. Continue reading “Why I’ll Never Support Another Dog Rescue”

Welcome to the (Green) Machine

When’s the last time you experienced real, pure, unadulterated joy? Prior to this past Monday night, I’d have been hard-pressed to answer that question. But something happened to me that night, and it was spectacular. Better than anything I’d experienced in a long, long time. Continue reading “Welcome to the (Green) Machine”
