Honey, I’m Home…..

Honey, I’m Home… Yes, I took quite a sabbatical. And yes, I missed you so very, very much. That may sound a bit facetious, but the truth is… drum roll please… I did. Not a day went by when I didn’t miss writing, or you reading me. It...

Prayer To The Universe… I Surrender

by LAURIE on JUNE 21, 2010 To the Universe. This should about cover it… As I sit here, feeling no bliss, I’m tired of being in my head and wondering what will happen and which way to turn. I trust that I don’t have all the answers. I know not what...

What Do I Know? I’m Just a “not so smart” Internet Marketer…

by LAURIE on JANUARY 9, 2010 Today, I received the email below from an online “guru” … ~~~~~~~~~~~~ The subject was: “9 Year Old Girl EXPOSES “Big” Internet Marketers” and then it proceeded to insult me as follows – typos included: “ Most marketers just aren’t that smart, and this little girl proves...

YOLO!

***This post is dedicated to my friend Tammy Mayes Gioia, who certainly took life by the horns and dragged it all over the map.  I love you, Tam.  JUBS forever.*** I started to write this in a far too somber space. Not the room, mind you.  My head....

Twisted Sister

I've always had the kind of twisted mind that can figure things out. Sometimes when they've just begun, but most of the time when they're not supposed to be. (At least, not yet.) Mysteries... whodunnits... who shot the Sheriff... ('cause we know it's not the Deputy...)  In fact,...

And This Little Piggy Came Home…

(An old post for a new day. And oh, so apropos.) by LAURIE on SEPTEMBER 2, 2013 I’ve never really given much thought to what “home” is.  Never thought of it as anything but where I go to lay my head.  Comfortable, yes.  But just a place.  Truth be told, I...

It’s Not Always What You See. It’s How You See It

by Laurie on April 24, 2012 Perception.  Insight.  Awareness.  Discernment.  View. Take a look at the picture above.  Old hag or beautiful woman?  What do you see?    Personally, I see the beautiful woman.  But it wasn’t always like that.  Not by a long shot. Coming off writing a memoir, or a book...

Tribute To A Friend

by LAURIE on DECEMBER 5, 2010 Today was my best friend’s birthday.  She died when I was 22. It was the first time anyone I was close to passed away, and I didn’t take it well.   None of us did. Actually, it surprised me that I woke up today thinking...

Boobless AND Brainless? Absolutely not!

by LAURIE on AUGUST 25, 2010 I have no boobs.  I already know this.  And I’ve known it for quite some time. It was painfully brought to my attention in the 9th grade when Joe DiNicholas came up to my locker, a bunch of his dim-witted buddies in the background, and asked...

In Business And In Life, You Can’t Play That Country Song Backwards…
