A good representation of what life’s like right now… I am utterly exhausted so this is going to be a very short post. My life seems to be quite chaotic, often inflammatory for my poor temper/nerves, and the PTSD is flaring constantly. It’s blazing through my brain like the wildfires plaguing CA and OR. I’ve […]Read More Station Status Update – Life sucks some days
How many of us feel overwhelmed by everything we have to get done in a day/week/month? *raises hand* I know I do.

Hi everyone – and to all in the US, Happy Memorial Day. I say “Happy Memorial Day,” but let’s take a moment to consider what today is really about. Today is the day where we honor our fallen military. All those lives lost in violent conflicts all over the world in defense of our country, […]Read More Station Status Update: Memorial Day memories
Hi everyone! This is a follow up to the “I’ve gone nuclear” post. Let’s cut to the chase here – housing everyone in Oregon sucks. Everywhere you go you’re looking at anywhere between $2500-$4000 just to get into an apartment, and that’s if you’re lucky. And rent isn’t cheap either. Many studio apartments – and we’re talking 300-400 […]Read More Calling all artists, poets, and clever people! Help a desperate shopkeeper here!
(No, I didn’t take this picture – but I wish I did. As always, any photos/images used here, unless directly stated, come from Pixabay.) So it’s April. Spring. And I’m finding I don’t have a lot of energy to enjoy what few sunny days I see on the coast. Not just because of the hours […]Read More Station Status Update – April 2018
Hi everyone~ You may have noticed that Amberwoods Station has been fairly quiet of late. That’s because I’m usually so exhausted by the time I have a moment to blog I’d rather spend what energy I do have on working on the novel – which is on its second draft and, well, moving slowly. I’ll update […]Read More Station Status Update – Why I haven’t been here much
As you may have noticed, this blog has been silent lately. A lot has been going on lately and I thought I’d give you an update. First, I finished the first draft of The Tiger’s Keeper. I’ll be getting started on the second draft soon. I’ve seen doctors, specialists, the ultrasound technicians, and a few other […]Read More Station Status Update – Why I’ve been MIA
Hello everyone. First, you’ll notice the blog changed again. That’s to proudly display the Amberwoods Station banner that my friend Sara made for me. She did some other stuff for the Amberwoods Station for me, and you’ll get to see those later. Second, yesterday I went to the OB/GYN to discuss the possibility of a […]Read More Healer Report #1 – Dangers of major surgery (TMI ahead…if you’re squeamish, watch out!)
