Holding on to Values vs. Jobs

I state clearly on my business website that, while I will edit academic papers, I do not write them, nor will I re-write a purchased paper. I am seriously considering adding a disclaimer that I will not scam, spam, or wham-bam-thank-you-mam anyone either!

Two situations occurred this week to bring about this consideration. The first played out over several days and began with a response to my Craigslist ad. A "very busy executive" wanted to talk to me about working for him. Only he… Continue

David Foster Wallace

Pardon me, I've been drinking this evening...

Am I crazy or has nobody posted a damn thing about the death of David Foster Wallace? This is perhaps the loss of one of the most prolific writers of our generation and I haven't seen a single word on the fact that he hanged himself last week.

You CAN Get There From Here...

If you're willing to change. How do I go from being the proverbial New York City Girl to a Colorado Mountain Lady. It started with a change in my workout!

The Feel of Words

An invitation, gather 'round.

Welcome here where tales abound

Of maidens fair and gentlemen,

A journey wandered now and then.

A primrose path, a thorny deed.

Romance or a murderous seed.

Light and fresh or deep and dark.

A fevered pace, a dreamer's spark.

Take a ride on silken threads,

As many colored layers are shed.

Phrase by phrase as strokes of brush,

A painted story, full and lush.

A revelation, a silly… Continue
