As always, thanks for reading! — Chris K.     I heard a men’s underwear ad on SiriusXM and they threw out a stat that has me befuddled.     “We spend 90% of our time in our underwear…”     I keep trying to...

Thursday Thoughts:  The Way We Create

Everybody has their own style for what they do for a living or even how they pursue an interest or hobby. And the way I approach the mission can be completely different than the next person. For those who may be reading this and enjoy creating — whether it is as a writer, a painter or musician, or an artist in some other creative realm — I thought it might be fun to share our approaches. Sometimes we can hear what another is doing and think at first, how preposterous but then, when we embark on this different approach, we can find...

As always, thanks for reading! — Chris K.     It’s easy for belief in ourselves to falter at the smallest slip, gaffe or spill.   But if we remind ourselves that before two brothers flew a plane, they didn’t.   Again and again and again.   Don’t second-guess...

Movie Mondays ~ Monday, May 6, 2019

This week’s films viewed are few in number but they have much in common, and I assure you, it was completely unplanned. They are both recent additions to their respective networks — one debuted on HBO just days ago, the other was recently added to the May Netflix lineup. Their content similarities are striking.   Both celebrate groups of women trying to affect change through action and honest communication but for different reasons and in different circumstances. Both have women directors at the helm. Both directors seem...

Wise Words ~ What Lies Within

Sometimes, we struggle to find the answers in ourselves so we turn to other sources of wisdom, like the words of another writer, philosopher or artist of a different medium. With a long list of tasks at hand and a limited amount of time to do it, I am starting to sense a skinny strand of feeling overwhelmed. So I’m turning to another source for words to inspire, and sharing them here with you. As always, thanks for reading. ~ Chris K.   What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us....

Thursday Thoughts:  Get Creative This Weekend!

Last week, my hubs and I finally ventured over to the other side of Tampa Bay to visit a new museum. The Bay area has so many wonderful museums and art galleries, and though we’ve both lived in the area for over 30 years, we still have plenty to discover.   Aside from the other treat of meeting up with some great friends we had not seen in a while and experiencing a restaurant new to us (brunch at The Mill in downtown St. Petersburg…scrumptious, I might add!), we headed over to The Florida Holocaust Museum for an exhibit...

Fun with Months: May Days

Whenever a new month arrives, many of us will start scouring the calendar for the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions that we can expect to be celebrating soon. But the odd days, those quirky dates that get recognized are fun to learn about, too. I thought I had my grasp on the month of May 4 and its May the Fourth Be With You geekiness for STAR WARS fans among us and of course, Cinco de Mayo (May 5), but No Socks Day (May 8, btw)??? I have one friend who will appreciate that one especially! And Mimosa Day (May...
