General Thoughts on Heroes (Spring Clean AtoZ speak)

Intro Participating in the last 3 years of Cheryl Sleboda’s spring clean blog hop has been critical in my development as an artist and my life. Not joking. Seriously, I am too busy, too engineer, too Spock, too Sheldon, too much geek or what ever box you chose to put me in. Yes, I know, I am like Yoda–weird and small saying things and doing things that don’t make sense to all. I mean no disrespect. Only…

soundtrack of my life

As I click publish, my stove top timer sings to me says it’s time to close up that computational device–time to reboot the mind, body and spirit. Yes indeed, you call it sleep, I call it low tech rejuvenation! Slowly simmering in the crockpot is the world’s most flammable chili con carne. A soft snore from one of my sweet giant beasts. This is the soundtrack of my life. I’m joyful. I’m humbled and honored. I’m blessed!     Make it Work Make Your Mark Make…

Step Up and Shine

Imagine this… You go to work at sports arena, like a pawn to the Kings, you skate and shovel ice during breaks. You also act and sing, but doesn’t everyone in La-La-Land? National Anthem pop stars cancel. Thirteen minutes notice. Celebrate a century of hockey. Introduced as Courtney Daniels, a member of LA Kings Ice Crew, you step on the ice and sing the US National Anthem like an all-star. If this is a launching point or just a really good day at…

Stems from HOPE

Hidden Figures. As a lover of numbers, math, words and stories, my intrigue grows exponentially. Looking just at the second word Figures I see numbers first, then realize the word also means beings, persons; after a while I think, oh yeah, sometimes women are dehumanized just into shape–so figure could also be that. I do love that it took me a while to think of that one. It might be like fighting windmills, but I see great power that stems from…

Spark of Science, Allure of Art

26 February 2015.  That Day, That Dress. A spark that ignited communication beyond the virtual work, into our day to day existence. The irony of duality—the prose I planned to be an essay, spilled out like silk cocoon, as my fingers danced on the keyboard.  For most of my life, I’ve stood in awe of those whose have lived through eras of drastic technological change.  My dad’s mom worked as a seamstress, her childhood had no Saturday…

Mardi Gracias

A nice treat on MardiGras to see my Lucky Needlecase in CutLoosePress’s Facebook post. Lucky Needlecase is a great excuse to practice a new quilting style–matchstick or other tight quilting looks great in this small scale project.  Do you practice on purpose?  I typically practice with a solid color and interesting backing.  The solid helps me learn and the fun side is forgiving! This nice Hoffman Batik tricks the eye – see my lines aren’t actually perfect! Ask your local quilts shop to…

Triple Threat and the Reservation Equation

I am well versed in the delicate art of delegation.  I delegate to my humble crockpot, to the pizza parlor, to the timer on the coffeemaker, the delay on the dishwasher and washing machine, our wash&wear wrinkle-free dress shirts, my many checklists, a few at the ready “go-bags”, the recording device on my phone, my gps, my fabulous nail tech, my streamlined makeup system, my Kindle, my iPhone in general… these are some of my many teammates that create more…

  • being brave we nurture our future, treasure the love and teach without bias. My respect to all those parents and kids of the last sixteen years who rebuild trust and hope while ensuring safety in these uneasy times--where a smile can seem rude or callous on q day of pain. I smile that all those who give aid, that they feel the love, that unending awe , that honors their sacrifice #bernesemountaindog #bmd #moon #patriotday #parents #teachers
  • Baysox Season ended -- top of the ninth on day nine of month nine on this my twenty-ninth year after school. My words spill out in cadence with Giamatti's GreenFields. This game evolved, the minor leagues fly through games in under two hours. Pace of the Game rules in action. Pack up Baysox until next spring, to restart that pattern of life, and hope. @bowiebaysox @milb @ballislife #sports #lifelessons
