TWITL – week fifteen – forgotten for the moment

the skies darken the wind howls the sun fights to shine the clouds will not comply time loosens its grip dreams become forever relief from this storm brewing out there swirling in here the silence falls the darkness envelopes the stars stay away forgotten for the moment Cure Caleb’s Colon – Read Caleb’s story. He’s…

TWITL – week fourteen – the little things

the little things remind me of you the whisper of the wind the last chord of a song sometimes I smile forgetting the end while remembering the laughter the sweetness untarnished a careless phrase conjuring a moment a memory best left to dreams softly lit gentled by hope and whimsy the little things that remind…

TWITL – week thirteen – Happy Easter!

I begin this post on Good Friday, the beginning of my long weekend. I didn’t follow any of the usual Lent practices. I didn’t give up anything and I think I’ve been pretty much eating meat on Fridays. Ah well, I haven’t been a practicing Catholic for many moons. I’m sure that’s pretty evident. Baseball…

TWITL – week twelve – so it’s spring now

For the longest time, spring was my favorite season. It means baseball, sunshine, cool breezes, and life blooming. Super rugby has already started and summer is on the horizon with its concert season and lazy days. I loved spring and scoffed at the other seasons. Now? I still love spring but I’ve come to appreciate…

TWITL – week eleven – end of the quarter

The third quarter of the school year ended on Friday, marking the beginning of Spring Break. MOST GLORIOUS! I am making some long weekends to break up the two weeks. It’ll be awesome! a year ago, in the wee hours A year ago was Tyler’s last show at the G Bar. Now he has his…

TWITL – week ten – daylight savings time

We changed the time today and oh how glad I am that I took a nap yesterday. As much as I love spring, I dread “spring forward” because my head cannot let go of the notion that I’m “losing” that hour. I like having that hour! Can we just agree on one thing and go…

TWITL – week nine – rain and sunshine

Ahh, the weather this week. The most constant was the cold, which I didn’t mind at all. Sometimes the sun shone, sometimes the rain fell. I liked when the rain fell because afterwards the air would feel fresh and alive. So beautiful. The Farmers Market opened up this weekend so we spent our Saturday downtown…

TWITL – week seven – fangirl highs & lows

It’s been an awesome week or so for me as a fangirl. Tyler’s song “The Difference” is getting a lot of play and my Strike Back boys will be appearing in the last two episodes of the current season. Huzzah! Philip Winchester & Sullivan Stapleton doing that Strike Back thing again… But first, a little…

TWITL – week six – #TheDifference by @TylerRichMusic

“The Difference” – Tyler Rich Tyler’s single “The Difference” dropped on Friday, February 9th and OH MY GOODNESS, I’m already in love with it. I bought it as soon as I could on iTunes (2101 hrs) and listened to it on repeat until bedtime. It’s catchy and sweet and I LOVE IT so much. I…

TWITL – week five – writer’s pause

I think I’ve officially hit that “pause” in my writing. None of my stories are really calling to me and I suppose I’m meant to step back and just think of other things… My busy time of work started this week. It hasn’t been too bad so far. I am trying to remember to practice…

TWITL – week four – fangirl love shift

Inevitably, the tide of my fangirl love changes. Time and more knowledge of the object of affection works to erode the heat of that rush of discovery. Sometimes the adoration turns into something steady and sweet, soft and comforting. Sometimes the adoration crumbles into a memory, usually pleasant and easy. In rare moments, the adoration…
