I'm writing but not posting. reading but not always commenting. or sometimes I am it depends really on my mood as much as my inclinations. Holy Week isn't much of a time of rest for us as it is work. I offer you two places to rest this week. 1. My friend Lisa is doing [...]
I was reading a friend's article today on New Christian Voices and was sad to discover that his family was threatened this week. As a result of the threat, he asked the editors at NCV to take down his original post. I was looking forward the story because I knew that he and I share the same [...]
This was my popcorn bowl. Now it looks like a clam. The culprit? My oven. I was in a hurry and put some bowls inside of it for "safe keeping." Plastic popcorn bowls are not forgiving of forgetful women like me and 400 degree ovens. They also make a lot of smoke. Did you know [...]

Call me Susan and color me beige. My 15-year-old self showed up this week, and she has a bone to pick with me. It seems I'd kept her locked away in a tattered old box in the bottom of my closet and she isn't happy about it. How come you never told anyone about me? What [...]
