Welcome to my small slice of internet!  I’m so glad you are here.

I’m on a mission to understand the human mind and body in order to live a more happy and fulfilled life. This blog is about my findings and experiences, the successful and not so successful.

I am a writer and research historian who exercises and meditates daily.

When I reached age 40 I took a long look in the mirror to realize that the unhappy thoughts in my head were written all over my face. I committed to making a happier life for myself, not just for me, but also for my family. They deserved a happy and kind mother/wife… not the negative, cranky woman who greeted them every morning.

After spending a couple of years of exercising, meditating, and trying to change my outlook to a more positive perspective I visited the grocery store and for, what felt like the first time, I noticed everyone shuffling through the grocery store like myself. Our heads down, minds entangled in anxious thoughts, bodies hunched over our grocery carts and I knew that I had to reach out to other people. As a shy introvert, it does not come naturally.

Best, Thia

Swamp cicada?  What’s that?  It’s an insect that lives in the trees and makes a loud whirring noise in the summer. I find it comforting. It conjures memories of pedaling my big wheel in a hot street and using a stick to write in hot asphalt.
