Dreams Move On

July 17, 2019

This is the trailer that started it all, that launched the collection and the dream. I have five vintage trailers now, two long ones and two short ones and one that’s somewhere in between. And I have had a dream of building a little trailer village, a space for eclecticism and retreat. But. It took [...]

A journey.

March 22, 2012

Two and a half years ago my marriage imploded. Little by little I move toward a new life, a life which once again fits me and incorporates my dreams. Two and a half years ago, I had my dream life. I had found a partner who shared some of my most important dreams, and we [...]

A list is not a plan

January 2, 2012

I am a list maker. For many reasons, I make lists, and I could do the obvious here, and make a list of reasons why I make lists, but I will skip that, as it is too obvious, and it is not really what I am talking about right now. What’s important is that the [...]

Moving Along

January 21, 2011

The one-year anniversary of my divorce has come and gone, and I almost didn’t notice. That’s a good thing, the almost not noticing. It means that I have traveled a good, long distance from then and am more actually living now. It means that although I would still describe my heart as broken, broken-hearted is [...]

2010, A Year of My Life

December 29, 2010

I am a quiet girl, prone to moving through life at a turtle’s pace and to doing things at small, detailed levels. I am not one for making big splashes, yet I know I can have profound effects. Nevertheless, when I look back at my life, sometimes I feel like I haven’t done much; the [...]

Live on Etsy

December 2, 2010

After mumbling for years about my intentions to build a shop on Etsy, I’ve finally started really using the Etsy virtual storefront. And I’m loving it. As you might know, I have a lot of “Cool Stuff”. I have too much cool stuff, and a strong internal magnet for attracting even more. Just last week [...]

Obviously I Am Not in Charge

September 20, 2010

Things are not going according to plan. Not that there was much of a plan, but there were some overarching goals. And so far I am far from them. In fact, I just might be falling backwards. One main point of this whole move to the middle of nowhere was to regain my connection to [...]

Sometimes You Have to Move to See It

September 15, 2010

Last night I woke around 3 a.m.; a tickle in my throat coughed me awake. In my foggy, dreamy state, I looked out the window and thought, “The stars have moved,” what with the constellations being different than when I’d tucked in and all. Of course as I roused myself awake enough to take some [...]
