Breaking Bad to Shucking Corn


My birthdays are never typically. And never planned; or I should say if there was a “said” plan it goes awry so what is the point.

To start things off this year, I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the most talented actors working today and who also stars on my favorite show Breaking Bad. Genius level talent- check, charming- check, incredibly kind and gracious-check, handsome-check. I could go on but I might come off looking odd. Oh wait. I forgot, someone told me…

7 Year Old Outwits Tooth Fairy


I need to start out by saying I had no idea my husband kept a Blair Witch cigar box in a secret desk drawer in his office. In this empty cigar box, where one might find say, actual cigars, or old-school, something like pencils, his has various remnants of the Things. For example, Thing One and Thing Two have now lost a number of baby teeth. (They are 7.) Not only are they in the box, but tucked inside baggies, dated and named per which Thing. There was also a baggie of blonde hair.…

The C-Word

I was eating dinner with a gallery owner here in Portland, Maine, named Lyla—burritos at a place called El Rayo—when the topic of breast cancer came up. It often does these days. Partly because I was diagnosed not so many years ago, and mostly because the c-word has been very big all fall. You’d have to be living in a hole underground not to notice all the pink ribbons. Or the Laura Linney t.v. series. Or the NFL’s pink helmets.


I’d just ordered my first margarita when Lyla…

What Keeps Me up at Night?

WordPress Post A Week 2011 topic suggestion #56: 

What keeps me up at night?

Ummm…it might be easier to list the things that don’t keep me up at night:

  • Tornadoes – it’s a good thing the hubby is a light sleeper
  • The dog barking
  • Wondering who got kicked off American Idol – our family is Idoled out.
  • Wondering if my husband will like the dusty…

In response to Ami Mattison's question: Is writing poetry healing for you?

Following is my rather lengthy response to Ami Mattison's multi-part question, Is writing poetry healing for you? My answer seemed way too long to put in the response section. So I wrote a short answer to link back here. Also, I include the link to the definition 1st to save space, 2nd because it took me a minute to find the word. I had it done to me for…

Rants and Raves For The Week

This week seemed crazy and slow at the same time. Not sure how that is possible but it was. One day I heard crickets and the next, a grenade exploded.  I can't explain it. Instead, I'll just rant and rave about it. (Shrapnel has a lingering effect so if this post doesn't make sense or there are some typos, it's the PTSS.)…

As the Actress Said to the Bishop....: Marginal Fail, Nul Point! and ringing in the changes

Hello everybody! Here's my latest blog entry about the thin line between failure and success, and getting older! Hope you check it out...xx,isabelle


Marginal Fail, Nul Point! and ringing in the changes


I might as well live in Antartica. Apart from the fact that it would probably be marginally warmer than London at the moment, it seems that - with a few notable exceptions - most of my social interactions this week have been…

Dancing on my own

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with. ~Wayne Dyer

We’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.  ~Japanese Proverb

When I first quit drinking more than 3 years ago, I didn’t go out much. It was tough for me to imagine going to the same places and not ordering a drink. The very idea presented so many questions:

  • Would I have…

Poo-Poo Gumballs

My husband’s name should be the Candy Man, not Colby. Colby is a man with a penchant for all things sweet. Usually this isn’t a problem, but when it involves two little co-conspirators, then it can becomes a problem. I can’t trust Colby to go to the grocery store for me without him coming home with candy, ice cream, or baked goods. Somehow, when I send him out for broccoli, I get broccoli plus refined white sugar products.

Does Your Dialogue Sound Realistic?

Most of us read books because we love to escape (temporarily) from reality and immerse ourselves in alternate worlds inhabited by colorful, interesting characters whose lives are much more exciting than our own. That's certainly why I read! However,…See More
