Hope gets me up in the morning. The forecast may be rain and the sky looks gloomy, yet I move on with the day, with a sense that it’s okay and it’ll be alright. ‘It’ encompasses much - relationships with loved ones and friends, personal and professional lives, the present and the future. Hope keeps... Continue Reading →

...to learn the lessons of finding meaning in what was unsaid, finding beauty in the in-between spaces, finding grace and strength being silent...
This is one of many blessings in my life. In my life, I have had 2 pregnancies, 2 live births and so 2 beautiful children. Do the Maths. Many are less fortunate. And women bear the loss, trauma, pain and sense of responsibility greatly. Miscarriages, abortion, stillbirths… no matter the circumstances, whatever the religious, moral... Continue Reading →
Such heart-felt words from Tabitha Lord Jorgensen…
I want to introduce you to Tabitha Lord, who cordially accepted my invitation to write a guest post while I am away on vacation.
Hi, I’m Tabitha.
I took a leap of faith and recently became a full-time writer. As I navigate this creative, exciting, and sometimes-exasperating world, I’d love to share my journey with you. I’m also married, have four great kids, and still teach a little, so I promise writing on various and sundry other topics. Let’s have a conversation about books, blog posts, kids or anything else you want to talk about. Life’s an adventure and I’d rather not travel alone!
I currently live in Rhode Island, a few towns away from where I grew up. In addition to my husband and four kids, I also have a spoiled, fluffy Ragdoll cat named Milo.
My degree is in Classics from College of the Holy Cross and I…

I had wondered if I could write a post remotely close to being positive today. Oh and why a positive post? Well, because that's part of the #BeWow blogshare over at RonovanWrites. I 'signed up' last week because it is such a great way to share some positive energy and love. But today has been... Continue Reading →
My guest post on @RonovanWrites
This month’s guest is Florence Thum of Meanings and Musings. Lawyer, Therapist, College Professor, Writer, Blogger, Mother, and more. And no, those are not in any particular order. A lady from Down Under with a lot to say and lot of ways to say it.
As I venture here as a guest still wondering what I could possibly offer on RonovanWrites, I am reminded ‘write what you love’. At the moment, what I love is TIME because I have so little of it. It is what I covet most.
Time cannot be bought, it is beyond my control. If I do nothing, if no one does anything, time will still pass in its own rhythm, in its own time.
Of course my perception of how time passes, the judgment I bring to its passing and to my being in it as it passes, is my own. That…

A different view on Fifty Shades of Grey…
I asked Florence to write a piece about 50 Shades of Grey since she had both read the books and seen the movie. With her therapist and lawyer/professor background I thought it would an interesting and intelligent experience for us all. Did it turn out as I expected? Read and find out. If you dare. If I were you, I might hide.~Ronovan
Fifty Shades of Grey (’50 Shades’) – trilogy and movie – have caused quite a storm in the media. Its critics have labelled it anti-feminist, for glorifying abuse and violence, for normalising domestic violence, and the list goes on.
In the wake of socio-political discourses rippling through social and news media, I (and eleven gal pals) went to see it on the second day after it was released.
The story in a nut shell
A little about the trilogy and the movie for those who have not read…

'Hold on' is perhaps a mantra for the weary, who are ready to lay down and let whatever it is wash over them, when it seems there is nothing left inside to rally. This, I'd imagine, is a slow and painful death of the soul and spirit. And we have been there, have we not,... Continue Reading →
“We need to find the courage to say 'NO' to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.” Dr. Barbara De Angelis It is never easy to give up the things that we've 'always' done or 'always' had. They have become habits... Continue Reading →
When does one know it is time, time to move on? Can one ever be assured that the decision will be right? There is always some doubt, is there not, that the decision once made might just not be the right one. So how do you know? Is it the ever present pain that makes life seems... Continue Reading →
