It’s been awhile…
…Since I wrote about my daughters. This blog started out as a pregnancy blog with Skyler way back in 2007. It made the obvious transition to mom blog but I eventually got out of habit of updating it. Life got busy and crazy and then Layla came along and I just quit writing about this…
Exploring abstract art
Eek! I haven’t really written in quite sometime now. I’ve been too busy painting! It’s funny how any sort of creative outlet seems to work for me and settle my mind. Whether blogging, writing free verse poetry when I’m too lazy to blog, painting, or even just posting on Instagram. I blogged on and off…
The knot tightens in my core A cauldron beneath it Brewing from the past Fear Uncertainty Apathy I am frozen in this darkness But I know it will bubble over into nothing Evaporate when I wake Sunshine and hope awaits Don’t fight it Just breathe and be Until the dawn of a new day.
Why do I feel so guilty? This focus on me. The work to become who I’m meant to be. Peeling back the scabs and reopening the scars What isn’t mine? What is of the stars? Underneath is an unbroken child True love and dreams She was born of the wild But the world told her…
Once it had subsided I tried to explain it But the words made no sense Failure Drowning Tightness Suffocating Tears Heavy Frozen “What triggered it?” I don’t know.

There’s been a lack of blog posts lately but for pretty good reason. We’ve been busy and I guess I haven’t needed to complain about anything. Ronnie and I got back late Sunday night from a fantastic ski trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and went right back to work Monday morning. We’re not even unpacked.…
Sometimes I think I might shut down the blog and cease writing. Each week goes by and I realize I haven’t yet written a post, and this doesn’t sit well with me. Isn’t it an unwritten rule that bloggers have to write at least once per week and really good ones do far more than…
And Then There Were Two
All those friends, family, coworkers and strangers who are always asking when we’re going to have another kid…it’s still not now! But we have added a new addition to the Oswald family…of blogs. I got Ronnie hooked up to start blogging his passion for fitness! It’s only the beginning, and who knows what it could…
It’s About Time!
I’m getting caught up (again), picture style! Who wants to read anyway?
