Hey, friends! How are y'all tonight? I hope your Monday hasn't felt too "Monday"-ish. I guess the biggest "news" here is that I've decided to release my next poetry collection in Esperanto first, then English (maybe both simultaneously, but I doubt I'm up for that!). The poems weren't composed in Esperanto though (I'm not quite … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: May 18, 2020
Hi! How's it going in your corner of the world? It's been a blustery, wet day here, with wind howling around the house and trying to open, rattle, or tip over anything it can, spattering rain almost angrily against windows and walls, roof and concrete. But I...am oddly content right now. (I got a Thing … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: April 13, 2020

Hey, it's Monday again/already!

It's supposed to be warm-ish most of the week in the afternoons, but I know that … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: September 9, 2019
Hi, y'all. 🙂 How's it going? It's been a busy week here, as we're down to the last days before school starts. I'm trying to work out the wake-everyone-up schedule to maximize sleep but minimize the hassle of getting three kids out the door. Two of mine will ride the same bus, even though they … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: September 2, 2019
Hi, y'all! What's on your mind tonight? Stuff is getting real with the craft show; it's this coming weekend! Setup is Friday afternoon, and then Saturday from 9-5 and Sunday from 9-3 it's "showtime." (Kind of a big deal for this introvert...I really hope I can be "on" for everyone. I love the stuff I … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 19, 2019
We are natural, but we've forgotten.
I woke up this morning excited for the day. Then reality happened.
