Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

Writer's Block

I think I have it.  While a myriad of posts have been swirling around in my head I haven't been able to give them the full attention they deserve.  I've been doing more reading and commenting and playing with my new toy.  I finally jumped over into and now am obsessed with a fancy new D.roid.  Granted, I got a little push from the freak-out that's been going on a work.  Internet sniffing at least monthly, a "zero-tolerance" policy (whatever that means) and a general feeling that most of what I read on blogs falls under the category of offending someone, somewhere.  So, I guess I won't lose my job because I like to read blogs and write posts while at work (on "smoke breaks" and at lunch of course).  I think part of the difficulty with writing is that my mind is ON and churning at work.  Ideas flow through me easily, I tend to react to things I read in others' posts and then forget them if I don't write immediately.  I keep thinking I'll come home and spend some time composing thoughtful, insightful blog posts but it's not happening, and typing on that tiny phone keyboard is not a skill I've mastered yet.

Today, I'll leave you with what I think is a prime example of writer's block when under a deadline.
