A Stillness of Chimes – Book Review

The cover image of Meg Moseley’s latest novel, A Stillness of Chimes, is the first thing to grab your attention. The vividness of the blackberry juice-covered fingers intrigued me as I sat there staring at the 3 blackberries sitting so still in the outstretched palm. I wondered if it would be a tale of life’s …

My Stove is Deep, What About Yours?

Boy, life sure does happen doesn’t it? Living life and going with the flow to the best of my ability is great, don’t get me wrong, I love it. Sometimes though, no matter my intentions some things just get pushed further and further back. I’m not sure about anyone else’s stove, but mine seems to …

It’s Hard

Things are hard. It’s quite difficult to be away from Hun day in and day out. It’s hard to be displaced, living out of a suitcase in someone else’s residence. It’s also hard to see my father start to make progress, only to have a health episode again lasting for days. It’s hard to do …

Returning to Myself

Tonight I was able to get 2 1/2 hours to myself. I almost feel like a new person. How relieving it was to care for myself – alone! I needed that time badly and I’m so very grateful that I was able to get it. Everything just fell into place, without any planning by me. …

What Am I Doing??

Tonight I was a bad mother. I wasn’t nice. I wasn’t calm. I wasn’t even a little bit happy. I wasn’t loving. I wasn’t compassionate. I wasn’t a good person towards Baby Boy in many ways. I was angry. I was frustrated. I was hurtful and mean. I was harsh. I yelled. I didn’t comfort …

The stress is getting to me. Stress of being away from Hun every.single.day. Stress of being on the move every weekend when Hun comes to visit. Stress of trying to manage my life, Baby Boy, my family’s life, my father’s needs, and keeping his place in order. Stress of not getting much, if any, time …

Fear and Letting Go

It’s hard to be in this place again. The place of fear. Fear and I, though well acquainted overall, aren’t the best of friends. Logically I know things are different with my father this go around, not quite as scary, it’s still difficult to be in a place of not knowing what is going on …

Internet Eye-Opener

Sometimes I just don’t know how much I rely on the internet. When my father’s internet wasn’t working properly and he made the decision to change providers last week, I wasn’t able to use my computer on the internet. That was tough. It’s already tough being out of my regular routine, though I’m slowly establishing …
