Today is a rainy day Sunday. Despite my long laundry list of things to accomplish, I find myself at the Bean & Leaf Cafe in downtown Rochester, sitting at a window seat table, looking over the corner intersection. The leaf design artfully displayed in the foam of my dirty chai latte is expanding into an unrecognizable… Continue reading Bean & Leaf Cafe: a rainy day, coffee shop Sunday afternoon
Tonight, I attempted to burn the midnight oil at work but called it quits around 11:15pm so I could walk out with a coworker. I’m incredibly busy right now and this project that I had previously sunk days into from February has finally come back to me, as was promised – though I hoped I… Continue reading Pour a glass; it's time to un(wine)d.
Is it possible to take a week off and regroup? I’ve come up against that ebb part of the ebb and flow of life and it’s really putting a damper on my desire to live out my mantra and focus on the positive things. I’m caught up with this discontent. Let me just take a… Continue reading I know that it's a wonderful world.
I’m just going to come right out and say this: I’m getting a tattoo. Just one more to add to the dime-sized one that I already have and then I’m done.

I think it’s important to commit to some sort of regimen – not that I’m giving up on living spontaneously – but if I don’t set out a plan for this particular venture, I might forget some of the lessons or moments… Continue reading Corporate returns were due today. Hope you extended in time.
Here’s a puzzle: Tonight was going to be spontaneous tonight – turns out, the activity of choice is fully booked in several cities. I guess this is my true test for spontaneity – I have approximately one hour to come up with another good plan! God’s got a way of keeping me honest with my… Continue reading Since when has spontaneity required planning?
8 days until Spring. I started my countdown at the beginning of the month and every day seems a little warmer and the birds seem to sing a little bit earlier and louder. There’s something about Spring that holds promise of a better or new life; I’m holding earnestly to that belief this year. The… Continue reading Friday Night Recap
Nothing holds as much promise as an unwritten page, or blog – as the case may be. Somehow, the Friday before the March 15th tax deadline seems as good a time as any to begin this project. Writing one page at a time – it’s the new approach I’m taking on life so why not couple… Continue reading Day 1
