The Hit List – What kind of person

by Theresa Reed on April 22, 2017

Tweet What kind of person would I like to be? I often ask myself this question. I think it’s a good question to ponder. When I ask this, I find that many adjectives come to mind. Compassionate. Kind. Loving. Honest. I want to be a good person. Being a good person is not an easy […]

The Hit List – Even tarot readers get the blues

by Theresa Reed on April 15, 2017

Tweet Most days, I’m a happy-go-lucky gal. It’s my natural state of being. Joy shoulda been my middle name! But the last few weeks, I’ve been in a funk. Instead of my usual joie ve vivre, my mood has been leaning into a dark place. I found myself listening to nothing but sad songs because […]

The Hit List – Where’s the fire? Part two.

by Theresa Reed on April 8, 2017

Tweet I never skip a shower, no matter what. Doesn’t matter if I am short on time. My day can’t get started until I’m scrubbed clean. Even a hot water heater on the fritz won’t stop me.  Which is exactly what happened a few weeks back. I got in, turned on the water and screamed. […]

The Hit List – I didn’t see it coming

by Theresa Reed on April 1, 2017

Tweet “Why didn’t the cards show that?” the woman sobbed. Her brother had been viciously murdered in a drive-by shooting. “You never asked about him.” We both got quiet for a minute. For her, it was a moment to realize that her whole focus had been on her son, who was going through a tumultuous […]

The Hit List – Whole-ish 30

by Theresa Reed on March 25, 2017

Tweet I’m a woman of whims and indulgences. But recently, those indulgences caught up with me. A spare tire around the waist and a constant post-nasal drip with a persistent cough wasn’t a happy state to be in. Sure, I could blame this on middle-aged and all the stuff that comes with that. But the […]

The Hit List – Snacks, books and friends

by Theresa Reed on March 18, 2017

Tweet Last month, I kicked off the next leg of  The Tarot Coloring Book with a venture into Albuquerque. It was awesome. I think I fell in love with that city. Needless to say, it’s a place I would definitely hit up again. Last week, I took the tour back to my neck o’ the […]

The Hit List – Ode to Patti Smith

by Theresa Reed on March 11, 2017

Tweet I remember that day like it was yesterday. Sitting on the hard red bench in the kitchen reading the newspaper while mom fussed over dinner. Back then, there was a section in the paper called the “Green Sheet” which had cultural things, cartoons, and Dear Abby. That sort of thing. It was my favorite […]

The Hit List – The beautiful ones

by Theresa Reed on March 4, 2017

Tweet We were headed down to Racine, to pick up a friend from a conference on a quiet but cold Sunday afternoon. The wind was brisk and the skies a gorgeous shade of powder blue spotted with soft ribbons of clouds. As usual, we were deeply engaged in our typical animated jabber about life, food, […]

The Hit List – New (Mexico) Perspectives

by Theresa Reed on February 25, 2017

Tweet I’m the first to admit that I’m a stubborn woman. Once my mind is made up, it’s a done deal. Which means: if you want to get me to change my mind, get ready to tussle. You’re going to be have to might convincing. For example, my travel rules are set. Nowhere hot. Nowhere […]

The Hit List – Baked

by Theresa Reed on February 18, 2017

Tweet When things get stressful, I retreat to my kitchen.  It’s my ashram, the one place where I am totally at peace. Yes, even more so than my yoga mat. The chopping, stirring, sizzling, searing, whirring, and bubbling instantly chills me the hell out. In an instant, all is well again, no matter what. Last […]
