Welcome to my personal blog. Here you will find my own personal thoughts, philosophy, spirituality, pet peeves, rants and rambles, expressions of joy and angst, griping and observations on life. I hope you enjoy them, and find that any wisdom I may have gained from my experiences helps you out in your own, but really, I write for me here.

Little Rituals

(Originally blogged 11/20/14) Before I begin, I feel that perhaps some definitions are in order. When I refer to rituals, I refer to meaningful things done over and over. These are not necessarily...
