The daily diet particulars may vary any given week, month, or year; but this is not about food. Finally the day has dawned, and I’ve added a distinguishable link for Books to my blog menu. This post is noticeably short, because I want you to go there. and my angels around me in unison sing, ‘Hallelujah!’ The bookshelves of individuals is great insight into personality, am I right? I left out some categories. You’ll especially notice if it’s a particular genre which occupies a lot of your reading. I hint at others. Books are personal. They take up residence in both our minds and our homes, or in data on our tools. They need readers to even exist. A book … Read More

So Me

BrockaBooks, Work1 Comment

I didn’t get done all the things I wanted to get done today cuz I was too busy doing all the other things on my list. You know how it is. Right after some errands and my very late breakfast, I kinda stood frozen for a moment of ‘which way do I go?’ Anxiety in the dullest sense. I took some materials outside to write, and that proved too hot. So instead I came inside and finally made headway on moving furniture; because lifting heavy objects (dragging a chaise lounge) none of this is obviously heat inducing. With furniture in different rooms, I had to rearrange art. I had to move one of my heavy mirrors I’d actually paid a … Read More

Bookending Days

BrockaBooks, Work1 Comment

I bookend my days with reading; in the quiet morning and in the closing down of the night. Yesterday was rather curious as it had bookends within itself. I went on a 4 mile walk in the late morning. It was a bit overcast, cool, breezy. I 100% knew rain was coming but wasn’t sure when, so I didn’t let this deter me. About halfway to my turning around point, it started to drizzle a soft mist. It stayed this way and maintained a steady soft pour during my entire trek. I had on a baseball cap which made the experience considerably easier to handle. Just not having rain in your face means basically, you’re only getting wet. I delighted … Read More

The Deepest Grandest…Sigh

I didn’t go downstairs to stand in the horseshoe parking lot with one hundred other curious souls this afternoon during the eclipse. It’s not that I was nonpulsed about it though. I watched a live stream via NASA on my ipad during my lunch break, as the two were simultaneous; then I viewed through special glasses outside of a broker’s office window as the dark orange encapsulated. I’m ‘meh’ about the visuals and more about the feels. Because here I am hoping, the entire globe chills the F out for a sec and presses the reset button. In our personal lives, maybe. On the macro level, that would be winning the Powerball. Whether one is an astrological mocker or astronomically … Read More

Firstly: I could cry. I just spent over an hour on this post, to have it not publish and get lost in the ether. I pray this doesn’t come across as some abbreviated version from distress and anger. 🙁 I’m currently trying to write the impossible. Such as why another Sunday evening post delayed. I want to get some things right; or come across as objective as possible. It may be absurd of me to discuss eating behaviors and diets without inevitably pissing someone off. In my defense, we are living in a hypersensitive, easily aggrieved environment. When did we become this way? Why are people so slighted? Because we’ve all been given a voice, in the most unnecessary places … Read More
