Less than one short year ago, I would have called myself a hiker. Hiking was always listed as a hobby often accompanied by an enthusiastic proclamation of my love of nature and “hiking those trails.” No one was more shocked than myself to learn that was a lie. It may have come from my misunderstanding … More Posing As A Hiker?
Sometimes in life we just plain freeze up. It can be subtlety insidious with a slowing down when life gets chaotic and before you know it you are overwhelmed and completely frozen — unable to move forward or any other direction. A year ago I changed “Murgatron’s Musings” to “Marigold Moon Herbal and Wellness” to … More Thawing the Freeze
The Word Press daily prompt for inspiration is “once upon a time” and oddly I have a draft from over a year ago that starts just that way.

Somehow I was fairly certain they would still be about and had no worries that I … More Be Your Own Baby
“You know that pain and guilt can’t be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They’re the things we carry with us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose ourselves. I don’t want my pain taken away. I need my pain!” Captain James T Kirk I … More I need my pain!
In my heart I am a truly good and altruistic person. I have creative ideas to show appreciation to my friends and family while simultaneously making the world a better place to live. Yet, each of my days is horribly like the last as if I am starring in my own personal Ground Hogs Day. First … More If the road to hell is paved with good intentions then I’m going on a six-lane superhighway.
