Fire Down Below

It’s hot in Arizona. The reference is tired but if Hell was a place on Earth, Arizona would be it. In fact it was hotter here than in Cairo, Egypt this week. I’m amazed at the fortitude of the people who have decided to call it home. Day in a day out walking to work, waiting for busses, raising their families. When I first moved down here, I couldn’t...

If the Shoe Still Fits…

Hello, folks. I have returned to my post long abandoned after relocating to Tucson, Arizona. For some reason it didn’t feel right to blog under this moniker when I wasn’t in the North Star State. That’s all about to change because I am moving back in September. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Tucson. I fell head over heals for this little city nestled...

Depressed Cake Shop

I just wanted to leave this link here for later reading. I had typed in terms “writing” and “depression” to the xoJane search engine and amongst the articles about how to look good when you feel awful (Because that’s what we should worry about when we’re having major depressive episodes), I found one from 2013 about the Depressed Cake Shop. Started...

NaBloPoMo Day 1

It’s odd to me that I am starting out my NaBloPoMo on my iPhone. I imagined that I would be sitting in some quaint coffee shop in downtown Tucson, my laptop purring away and hotter than a cup of joe. Unfortunately in order for my laptop to continue its role as my life partner, it needed a new battery. It was whisked away this afternoon by people in...

NaBloPoMo Whodawhatta?

Hello friendly readers! I come to you today with something new that I’m pretty excited about. November is days away and thus begins that project writers love and loathe, NaNoWrimo. For the unfamiliar, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month in which folks write a novel in 30 days. In order to stay on track, it takes about 1300 or so words on a page...

I Live in Arizona Now: The Abridged Version

About a month and a half ago, my family and I packed our Honda CRV tight with everything that had some sentimental meaning for me and hit the road for the mysterious magical land of Arizona. The plan was to make it to Tucson in three days and then abandon me there. Well, abandon is a harsh word. I chose to make my fortunes in a foreign desert town....

My Obstacle is Fear

  via Delightfully Tacky Delightfully Tacky posed this question: What is keeping you from achieving your dreams? For me, it is fear. Fear should be my middle name. If I’ve ever had a dream, I’m really good at quashing it. “Marlee, you’re not good enough.” “Marlee, you’re surrounded by people who are better than you. No one will notice you.” It all goes...

Wake Me Up With Some Joe Joe

I like cold press coffee more than regular coffee. When the muggy Minnesota summer hits, I go online looking for an IV machine that will allow me to insert the stuff directly into my veins. If you have a good cold brew, the flavors are magnified and suddenly those over-the-top descriptors make sense: “Notes of cherry,” “a bite of chili pepper” “just...

Growing Up, Moving On

Hello friends, I’ve missed you. Life has been a little hectic as of late and I haven’t been sharing as much as I would like. If there were some awesome aspect of mail carrying that came up, I would be on here and typing furiously away. Life at the USPS has fallen into a rhythm but that’s about to get shaken up. Way back in April, I accepted a job in...

The Planets Don’t Care About the Mail

I’m not the superstitious type. Nope, not superstitious at all. Who am I kidding, of course I am. I went to a Waldorf pre-school and I believed in Santa Clause until the third grade. That’s why I totally believe in Mercury retrograde. What is Mercury retrograde, you ask? Basically it’s a cosmic communication blackout. That goes for phones, computers,...
