Blogging, Like Music to my Ears

I spend a fair amount of time reading other people’s blogs. I have a nice little collection of blogs that I follow that interest me or make me laugh or encourage me to think. I enjoy reading and commenting on the posts. I feel a certain kinship with the writers. Plus, it’s a lot easier …

Retrospective in Retrospect: The Long Term Effects of 2017 on a Weak Blogger’s Mind

  I tried to write a 2017 retrospective blog post and failed. Which was fitting, since 2017 in a nutshell equals: Sucked. Big Suck. Lately, since November at least, I am too mentally exhausted to write anything more than a few sentences at a time. And the paltry words I do manage to tack together …

In Search of The Lost Blog Post

Last night I dreamed about a perfect blog post. In my dream, I was thinking to myself what a wonderful blog post! Surely, it will be one of my best. It made perfect sense. It was witty. It was timely. It was so good. Then I woke up. I remembered that I was dreaming of …

Honorable Mentions: Blog Recognition Award

My blog friend Jean Marie at mixtapes and cupcakes nominated me for a blog recognition award. She’s a slice of life blogger with an astute sense of humor, something I appreciate.

What’s in a Name?

I’ve been thinking of the name of my blog lately–Rainy Day Writing. I created this blog in February. Sitting at my computer looking out the window. Before we started the addition from hell, the computer corner where I wrote was right next to a picture window. Just in case you get any Better Homes and …

Civil Discourse with Demons

Civil discourse. It’s a process that is sorely lacking in the public arena these days. It’s definitely gotten popular to demonize the “other”, the person who believes in a different path or a has a different set of values than we have or lives in a different neighborhood or looks different than us. Demonizing the …

Blogging and Writing Unsupervised

I’m new to this blogging stuff.  I resisted it for a long time because, quite honestly, I’m really not all that interesting. But as a writer, I thought it might be a good idea, because it encourages me to write, and since no one is paying to read this crap, I won’t have to listen …
