Traveling a Winding Road

Losing myself and finding myself, at the same time. How contradictory. How sublime. Have you experienced this? Do you understand? Maybe you felt it when touched by your lover’s gentle hand. Maybe it was revealed while you were pursuing your passions, allowing your mind to release all attachments. Maybe it spoke to you through words …

Winding, Writing, and Wildflowers

Escape the heat and the concrete, I did. Writing and exploring in the Cascades, I am. A rental car with a “Start” button and cool jazz playing on the radio, lifted me higher and higher, to a narrow winding road, lined with tall trees, providing sanctuary for birds of prey (and for me, a grounded …

Tappy Spoons and Happy Toes (video)

Sometimes I need to step away from my laptop and dance. Don't we all? 😉 Moving to music is good for the mind, body, and soul. 🎶 One of the themes of the Independence Day holiday is freedom; dancing offers me that experience and feeling. I invite you to join me, the Spoon Lady (Abby), …

Souvenirs

My sweet tooth is satisfied. Must be from all the Southern Charm, because I did not have any peach pie. My curves are a little fuller in my two-piece suit. Must be from my wide-angle lens – it cannot possibly be from the skinny margaritas I drank near the dunes. My carryon weighs more than …

Turquoise, Chili Peppers, and Meow Wolf

A long weekend with Sammi Lee now complete – a weekend that will forever standout as a special memory. I loved finding her at the airport – a tabletop transformed into a productive space; a beautiful woman immersed in a world where she creates. I loved flying with her to a place we'd never been, …

A Woman Never Tells

Oh, the lessons I could tell and the wisdom I could channel as I approach another birthday, making me all the wiser. Wisdom earned, not through deep regrets or extended bouts of brokenness, but mostly through persistence, purposeful direction, and a healthy dose of Divine intervention. Plenty of blood, sweat, and tears too. I could …

Ding-Dong, Let’s Dance!

Seven nights of this! It has been fun and reminiscent, but I am tired! I need to rest. Every night, for a straight seven, the same routine – as soon as I fall asleep, the doorbell rings. A faint ding-dong redirects the plot of my sleeping dream. In the dark and in my current dream …

Sirious Crush

Brawn is handy when you need something moved, like a couch. Brawn can be attractive too, but for all its heavy lifting, it’s no match for the sexiest muscle that does all the heavy thinking. Bulging muscles can hold and lift weighty things, but they only hold this woman's attention if they are controlled by …

Man, am I dreaming?

Let me look at you, before you get undressed. Less is not always more, more is sometimes best. In your tailored attire, adorned with a Guccie tie, covering a physique so fine. Sigh Your collar getting tight? Don’t change a thing, Dearest Darling. I could stare all night. Before you loosen that tie and pop …
