Ordinary Moments

Reverb10, Day 27. Ordinary Joy–Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year? Courtesy of  Brené Brown. There are no truly ordinary moments in my house. Mundane, repetitive and common perhaps. But never ordinary. Can’t possibly be with the kids I live with. […]

1,000 Words and Counting

Reverb10, Day 25: Photo – a present to yourself.  Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what […]


Reverb10 Day 22: Travel.  How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year? Courtesy of Tara Hunt. It’s ironic, really. 2010, on paper, sucked. Job loss: check. Money struggles: check. Dating fiascoes: check.  Amid all that, though, were such wonderful experiences of joy, wonder and awe. Reminders that the […]

Beyond Avoidance

Reverb10, Day 20:   Beyond Avoidance.  What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)  Courtesy of Jake Nickell. Seriously? Not a fan of this prompt. First, I dislike the word ‘should’ as much as I dislike its ugly stepsister […]


Reverb10, Day 16– Friendship.  How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst? Prompted by Martha Mihalick. “A” friend…such a difficult decision to make, deciding on just one friend to reflect on for this prompt. Let’s face it: as a single woman working my […]


  Reverb10 Day 18–What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? Courtesy of Kaileen Elise Confession time….I've never had a bucket list. It's too depressing to have a list of 'not yet accomplished' staring at me, […]

5 Minutes

Despite my best efforts, I fell behind this week. Being sick just sucks it right out of me, and I'm trying to remember that the world doesn't stop spinning if I fall behind on things. So even though I'd love to play catch up with Reverb10, I'm just going to do them as I can; […]


Reverb10 Day 12– Body Integration: This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?  Courtesy of  Patrick Reynolds. This makes me nervous, but it really doesn’t take  a Rhodes Scholar to figure out […]

11 Things

Reverb10, Day 11–11 Things What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life? courtesy of Sam Davidson Well, let’s see. Thinking about things my life doesn’t need is simple but Lord knows that even though there […]

Wisdom, or something like it

Reverb10 December 10 – Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? prompted by Author Susannah Conway  Full disclosure: I avoided this prompt yesterday. Wisdom is such a big word…so much bigger than smart, clever, accomplished, intellectual, knowledgeable…bigger, even, than the definitions I found when I felt […]
