Romanticizing your reality //

A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such [...]

Rosemary Biscuits (vegan & GF) //

This past week was full of emotions — striving to find the words, and they just won't come. Some of my dearest friends lost their homes and businesses in the SoCal fires -- my heart feels broken open -- my stomach has been consistently in knots. Tonight, I am baffled by my comfort. I am [...]

The Homebody Giveaway //

Writers Giveaway

  “Writers don't make any money at all. We make about a dollar. It is terrible. But then again we don't work either. We sit around in our underwear until noon then go downstairs and make coffee, fry some eggs, read the paper, read part of a book, smell the book, wonder if perhaps we [...]
