An Old Business, A New Start

When I began this company almost 10 years ago, I wanted to name it reminisce. Unfortunately at the time, that business and domain name was already taken. I stewed over that until Ben came up with the name Reminesse, the essence of remembering. I liked it then and I still …

Curiosity is Not Courage

I’ve been writing. And I’ve come to understand the importance of writing every day. You loose the flow of writing in the absence of the daily current.   I don’t know. Maybe that’s a good thing, but in re-reading it, the story feels choppy right now, kind of like learning how …

Pride and Prejudice

Saturday Ciera and I watched Pride and Prejudice for her birthday. Me and my girls kind of like that movie. It went along with what I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. This thing called love. And I readily admit I am a little slow on the uptake so forgive …

The List

Sometimes I feel the only thing coming out of my mouth are all the negative thoughts  tumbling in my head. I have to admit those thoughts roll and merge until I don’t even notice the blue of the sky or my eyes that are still able to see it, if …

Broken Wish Bone

Another year. Did you think gone or is here? I found the wishbone from Thanksgiving in my Christmas put away moment. I held both ends. That way I would win my wish no matter what. I thought of what to wish for. Tears came. I had nothing and not because …
