Madeline Wright on... Tumblr


Go to a coffee shop. Sit by the bar with the glass windows and look out. Look at all the people running to catch a train. All the girls with one too many shopping bags. All the couples too in love to care. Then you’ll see it - a bit of yourself in everyone. And somehow, sitting alone in a coffee shop had never felt so good.

A to Z Challenge: Footloose and fancy-free

#AtoZChallenge: Footloose and fancy-free

Footloose and fancy-free. I progress further toward a goal I’ve been reaching for far too long to turn back now.

Flying Over Malibu

Say cheese, Malibu, CA. #nofilter

Ferrying over SoCal in an airbus always fills me with a feeling of wonder. I don’t know if that or my insistence on sitting in a window seat when possible will ever go away.

Flexing my finger to push the button on the camera phone screen at just the…

A to Z Challenge: Enumeration

Enumeration keeps you alert and responsive. If you learn to recall the good things that have unexpectedly happened to you each day you will soon learn to recognize the opportunity in being prepared for the unplanned.

Each time I make plans to do something they tend to turn out differently. Instead of getting frustrated when this happens I’ve learned to just go with it. Now I either plan for…

A to Z challenge: Done and doing

#AtoZchallenge: Done and doing!

Day is done. Gone the sun… and the taxes…

Done with taxes for 2013! It’s one of those things that makes me feel accomplished though no one else really cares (except for Uncle Sam). Now that I’m through filing for the year I can move to the next daunting project: document filing.  I’m trying very hard to keep all the excitement under control. I’m kidding. I have so much to distill from my…

A to Z challenge: Can I take a moment?

#AtoZchallenge: Can I take a moment?

Can I take a moment to detail the unique and the mundane events of the day?

‘Crazy couple of weeks’ is how I’d describe the last 14 days. Wanna know why?

‘Course you do. That’s why you’re here. The first thing is that there were two sizable earthquakes in my area. One that I felt, a 5.1, though the epicenter was not near me. The other I somehow missed completely though the epicenter was closer. …

A to Z Challenge: Because, that’s why

“Because, that’s why,” is my answer to the question being asked of me all the day.

Because more doge. Obvi.

Believe it or not, you never told me why you’re really interested to know. This is partially why I continue to provide the most unsatisfactory of answers. Is it because you’re interested or is it to judge? To gather fodder for…

I’m doing the A to Z challenge: After all

I’m doing the #AtoZchallenge: After all

After all, the Rules of our modern society are meant to follow, bend, or break.

At times I get tired of the Rules, but I see why they are necessary.  I sometimes imagine that there were no rules, and that we all did whatever we wanted, at anytime, and any place.  We’d be up close and personal with an array of people in the most unanticipated of circumstances.  Everyone would assume the speech…
