Clay Pots and Cheesecake Crust

20170103_132942_resized

by We’re all the same, you know. Crafted from clay–fragile, a little rough to the touch. Some pots may get a porcelain coating, gold inlay or go through the fire and get a designer look, but…still clay pots. I have a hard time taking folks at face value because I know there are inherent flaws. […]

Change your perspective.

by Sometimes all you need to clear your head, solve a problem, or find inspiration is a change in your immediate surroundings. Other times you need to examine everything more closely, or more in depth. Perspective, or viewpoint, depends on what you see with your eyes, but it is heavily influenced by what associations and […]

Got skills?

by As in, what does your skill set REALLY look like?

Ready for my close-up…

by As I sit here researching, deciding where to plant seeds about my writings, where to send my books, and who would care, I thought about what I would say when the interviewer asks what’s so special about my writing. It occurred to me that somebody else may have the same basic answer, but my […]

Are you busy?

by    Okay, who’s not busy? Well, I know some people, but I’m talking about my own stuff right now. I woke up with a feeling of renewal, and the breeze of “ready to do something new now” blew by as I put some charity items out of the garage in the dark. I was up like […]
