On The Dark.
SnapDragon originally posted this on Wise & Shine, formerly known as Pointless Overthinking. . . . I’m afraid of the dark. Like, for real. And it’s not because I think there are trolls in the basement, or Civil War ghosts in the attic. (But—ahem—now that I’ve revived that thought, I might crawl into bed even earlier tonight.)…
My hands are quite small. They have been through a lot in their 35 years. Pleasure and pain. Work. Life. They’ve learned musical instruments. They’ve pretty much perfected the art of chalkboard writing. They’ve sliced bananas and watermelons galore. They’ve boasted ridiculous acrylic nails; antique diamonds; tender callouses from part-time jobs. They’ve slapped the steering…
Just Another Day in Paradise, Yo. . . . Hi. How are you, Dear Reader? How do you feel today: body, mind, and soul? Pause. Think. Answer honestly. Me? I’m doing just fine, thanks. I’m currently sitting on our RV love seat, clicking past the miles somewhere between Ohio and Indiana. Sweet Baby Snap is…
October: A Month in Review.
So umm. . . yeah. I was going to do this for each month in 2021. This is the second time I remembered. Oh well. So it goes. . . . 1. Trick or Treat, Yo. October is my favorite month, and pretty much always has been. It’s mysterious somehow, which comforts a literary old-soul…
I Just Arted.
Because sometimes it just feels good, you know? . . . Ahh. To feel the swish of the brush in my hand. The tiny gurgle of water in the jar. Fairy tale colors brought to life. . . . Hello, friends. It’s a friggin’ gorgeous spring day here in southeast Pennsylvania. One baby is snoozing…
I’ve been eating barbecue chips like they’re goin’ outta style, yo. (But that’s not what this post is about. Better read on. . .) . . . Hi. I’m perched here in our RV, cozied up in fruit-punch-colored sweatpants, the dim hum of the heater droning on in an inexplicably comforting way. It’s unseasonably cold…

I Like to Play.
There doesn’t always need to be an end. . . . Just play, yo. Sing it. Doodle it. Pluck it. Tinker and tweak. Sketches. Snapshots. Scattered notes and whatnots. Engage with the here and now. Play and play and play. . . . SnapDragon is an educator, artist, and lover of life. Follow Snippets of…
Three Tiny Victories.
Hey hey hey! Look who’s posting at this late hour! Awake past 10:30?! Snap’s living on the edge, yo. And since I’m here—more or less to make myself feel good about posting something—I may as well focus on the good. Today’s Three Tiny Victories: 1. I did not succumb to my Usual Sunday Blues. Almost…
Every moment of every day is filled with energy. Happiness. Sadness. Exhilaration. Apathy. Life. Death. The only control I have in this world lies within my own self. Think about that. My mind. My body. My actions. For every day we awake and arise, we sow a little seed that will one day bloom. May…
