Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 Benjamin Franklin said, “Energy and persistence conquer all things.” Do you agree or disagree? Second to last day in my month long journey. NaBloPoMo is up for February (love and sex) but I am going to take a break in part due to having some other tasks that need my attention […]

NaBloPoMo: Oh My … Almost Didn’t Make It Edition

Wow … such a busy day that I haven’t had time to post. Today, Ledcat and I went to the South Side to participate in the rally in response to recent incidents of violence against LGBTQ women at a local bar. More on that tomorrow. It is a great example of where you get energy […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 What is the most creative way you conserve energy in your home? The uncreative parts of conservation involve changing our habits and following “best practices: Set the thermostat and do not “adjust” except in cases of true sickness.  Because I work from home, we have two settings: 68 during the day/evening […]

NaBloPoBo: Energy!

What is your biggest concern about the future of the environment?  My biggest concern is the fact that people ignore science. They don’t like the facts so they simply ignore them. This is a common human response to things we don’t want to hear or deal with – denial. But it is very powerful. Realistically, […]

NABloPoMo: Weird Things That Energize Me

Throwing a tennis ball to my dogs. I love it. I can’t do it with my bum hand — and my left hand throws fill Ms. Marjorie’s fenced-in-yard with most of our balls. But it is so much fun to see how joyfully they play. Xander is relentless. Deus yips and prances. Ana barks fiercely […]

NaBloPoMo: Does Navel Gazing Generate Energy?

Today’s topic is self-generated after reading a little online dialogue about the impact/value/merit of the NaBloPoMo exercise. The question seems to be – does a writing exercise that may generate somewhat banal content have merit – does the content generated count for anything beyond the original experiential benefit of creating it? I’m new to this […]

NaBloPoMo: Superhero?

Monday, January 14, 2013 If you were a superhero, what would be your hidden superpower? How about this? Yep, cape and everything. For social media. OK, for Twitter! But blogging begat twitter for moi! I will tell you that it is best to wear a superhero cape over a tee shirt, not a blazer. Anyway, […]

NaBloPoMo: Where Do I Find The Energy?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Friday, January 11, 2013 How do you find the energy to write when you’re not in the mood? Well, typically, I don’t. Unless circumstances dictate otherwise – a topic or story that has to be covered. Sometimes, I approach those posts like they are official work assigments and go through the motions. Sometimes, I set […]
