About

In October 2010 I tried a writer’s experiment: write a post a day for 40 days.

With little knowledge of WordPress (and before WP’s PostADay had launched), I was a single mother raising my six-year old son, seeking the profound in the mundane. Sharing some snippet of the every day, I posted my Daily Chronicles to be filed among the Archives.

After the 40 days were up, I continued on. Six years and over 1,000 posts later, For the Archives offers a celebration of writing, art, photography, parenthood, nature, love and life.

Chronicled here are disappointments and heart-openings. Grade-school spelling tests and poetry. A love affair that led to marriage. Lots of photographs from my kitchen.

Threaded throughout is an intent to share the details with honesty. Stay ever-curious. Find connection.

The first in a series, Volume 1: Love and Motherhood, is a collection of poetry, prose and photography, chronicling my first year blogging here on the Archives. It is available at the Amazon Kindle store.

In honor of sharing love, beauty, and the art of a good, old-fashioned letter, I’ve begun to sell photography note cards at my Etsy shop, Love Letters Press. The images highlight the art of the ordinary on 5×7 cards, handmade on recycled paper. You can visit the shop here.

For the Archives beams out to you from a small speck in the Pacific, from which I send aloha and wishes for peace.

Life is an art, so make your masterpiece. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hi Paul. Very cool that you found the No Enemy post. I had a reader suggest I email you a link to it. Even better – you discovered it on your own. I’m honored by your feedback. I love your FB love journal – beautiful art! Thanks for all you do in spreading the message of peace and love. Imua! Sending aloha across the rainbow bridge from Kauai to Northern Cal… With gratitude. j.
