Beast Mom: "I loav you, Mom. You're the beast!"

My son wrote me a card that said this: "I loav you, Mom. You're the beast!" Nothing sums me up better. Welcome to the Beast Mom blog!

Thoughts Because Of An Ordinary Train Ride

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 21:32:32 +0000

I used to ride the train a lot to work in Chicago. Actually a bus and then a train and then a bus. Not a short commute. Not always a safe commute. Saw my share of unstable individuals, people who would get riled up, people who wouldn’t abide by the rules, people the bus driver

Prom 2017: AKA Better Late Than Never?

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 01:49:02 +0000

Got a text and pic from B late this afternoon saying he asked a girl to senior prom. I don’t know whether to be happy for him that this cute girl said yes, or yell at him. Because prom is in three days. Three days. No tux. No flower ordered. No black dress shoes that

Top ‘O The Morning At My House

Fri, 19 May 2017 16:46:26 +0000

Got these two texts – first one from my daughter and second from my son. Both are at their high school. Can’t ever say I don’t have the latest school info for you all. 😉 This should make every other parent out there feel wildly successful and on top of things in comparison to me.

Coming To The End Of A Season

Thu, 18 May 2017 23:16:33 +0000

The school year is winding down very fast. Issaquah Baseball still ramped up heading to State this Saturday. Excited for the boys, especially the seniors who get to experience State finally in their last season. Baseball Awards Banquet was last night. Last banquet for us. The boy found out there he is invited to play

Storytellers and Ownership

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:56:27 +0000

Been thinking a lot about the attitude of ownership at work and how good writing helps foster it. The attitude and culture of ownership is one of the most potent mindsets in any company when staff across all levels are both included and informed – resourced and empowered TO work with an ownership mindset. Too

#AmtrakResidency – Go to Twitter and look this up if you’re a writer. Amtrak has been experimenting with the idea of writing residencies aboard their trains. For free.

Where I’ve Been And Where I Am And Where I’m Going

Sat, 16 Mar 2013 05:56:02 +0000

You know how singers are told to pull their breath from way down deep? That’s how I want to write. I want to stand tall and pull from the deep. All my writing time is going into my North Korea book project, an espionage novel. I’m living, breathing, singing, and writing this book. I have to finish

My women friends are beautiful, and they grow more beautiful every year. At my last high school reunion, I was quite struck by all the feminine beauty in that ballroom. It exceeded (by a lot) the total beauty of the same group when we were in high school and college. Cute is simply not the

Buy Your Christmas Gifts From Local Small Businesses

Wed, 07 Nov 2012 21:42:02 +0000

Consider buying your Christmas gifts from local small businesses. Something beautiful from a nearby glass blowing studio. Cage time 10 packs at the batting facility that serves your little league. Handmade holiday decor or jewelry from all the upcoming weekend craft shows. Cooking classes at a local restaurant. A hot air balloon ride. Wine from

The Darkness In All Of Us

Wed, 28 Mar 2012 02:08:28 +0000

I just finished reading “Escape from Camp 14” by Blaine Harden. As I read about the life of the one and only person born in a North Korean prison camp who ever successfully escaped, I kept thinking about human hearts and how they go so dark. Why does this happen? How do hearts get seared

“Drifting House” by Krys Lee

Tue, 21 Feb 2012 21:14:38 +0000

I just finished reading a short story collection that left me with the sensation of the white winter sun. This is not the rare winter sun of the Northwest where I live but the sun of the vast middle states, the whitegray sun that sheets across millions of acres of flat space, the sun that

My Final Read This Summer

Wed, 17 Aug 2011 17:25:41 +0000

Anyone who truly loves books knows that feeling of turning the first pages of a much anticipated read. I had that feeling a couple nights ago when I turned past the front cover and read the introduction of a particular novel. I decided to only read the intro and foreword that first night. The next

A Gardening Parable

Wed, 15 Jun 2011 16:57:34 +0000

I once knew a woman who bought a friend’s house. My friend had the nicest kept yard in her neighborhood. Many of her neighbors wondered if the yard would look as pretty once a new owner took over. You see, my friend, while just a weekend gardener, really made her yard lovely. It wasn’t a
