Short Hiatus.

Hallo, Readers. Earthen Love will be going on a short hiatus. What is that, you say? Let me enlighten you. A temporary gap, pause, break, or absence can be called a hiatus. Even things that go on for a long time take a break once in awhile: one kind of break is a hiatus. If someone has…

Depth Within Itself.

At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself,…

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Hallo readers, guess what? I have not had a single heart issue since my blanking period has ended. Do you know what this glorious news means? Welcome back to the land of caffeine and chocolate!

Love Is.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. – Ann Landers

All The Shades.

I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental…

Coq Au Vin.

If you asked me to name a dish I’d eat repeatedly, it would be this one. This incredibly warming meal is like a delicious hug in bowl and when the weather turns cool, it makes the entire house smell like home. But, what I also look forward to, is the process of cooking this meal….

Be Right Back.

Hello, all. I am taking a short hiatus from Earthen Love to recover from heart surgery. Wishing everyone love, light, and happiness. I will be back online before you know it.


Do not be discouraged by the distance you still have to travel. Instead, appreciate how many “life miles” you have already covered. Your struggles have changed you into a stronger and better person. Don’t let anyone dissuade you from blooming into the person you are meant to be. Keep walking. — Dodinsky

Love What You Do.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with…
