The pack rat minimalist

Morning all, this weekend was harried. I worked all weekend and my children were in a constant state of chaos (not really, but they did seem to think they needed me constantly). This, friends, the chaos of my life is one reason  the minimalist lifestyle appeals to me: the idea that simplicity leads to peace and serenity.

Beast at the water cooler

It's Tuesday, people. Confession Time. You know I feel a bit embarrassed as I begin this blog because in writing this it's occurred to me there might be a pattern here I thought I had worn down, smoothed over. Seriously, I was convinced I was mellowing with age. I don't anger easily and certainly less often. I ignore bullshyte and all manner of stupidity that has nothing to do with me. Generally, I'm in a good mood until recently when a co-worker laughed at my expense one time too many.

Ritual: meaningful lifeposts

In these early days of 2014, I look forward to looking back and looking inward. I look forward to contemplating my goals for this year. Yes, I value resolutions and no, I don't feel I am behind because I haven't completed a list. There are so many things I want to carry into 2014: ritual, meditation, acceptance and permission to be.

Thank you

Thank you
I know what I think. I write to hear what you think. Let's talk about it.
