In the Meantime...

Welcome to "In the Meantime...", my honest and transparent blog about virtually anything and everything that happens in my life when I'm not totally engrossed in my creative work. From dating and daydreaming, to family and faith, you'll find it all here. If you're ever reading my fiction and find yourself wondering about whether or not a character is really me, check here for confirmation!

I recently saw a post that read, “Your salary is the bribe they give you to forget your dreams…” I immediately liked it. Why? Because I could relate to it. A few moments later, I saw another post that read, “Your salary is NOT a bribe to forget your dreams. Your salary...

My mother is an educator. Professionally, it is the only thing I have ever known her to be. As I continue my own journey as an educator, I often reflect on the lessons that I learned in watching her interact with children and students of various ages, ethnicities, and...

Happy New Year!

As 2016 seems to hurry to a close, I’ve already found myself in a state of reflection. One of the most intriguing things I’ve learned this year is my perception of and reactions to energies. From coworkers to students, I have been able to have a greater sense of peace...

OK...I know that's not a word or a real place, but I have to admit that lately I've found myself mentally drifting from time to time. There are three specific areas of my life that inhabit my thoughts most. They have impacted the way I think and behave as well as my pr...

I know what you're thinking...YUCK! Who wants to read about that? But I promise this post won't be about things that make your skin crawl. Rather, it is an attempt to tell you all about a very valuable lesson I recently learned about healing.
