the muse


Hi. I’m Silke, and this is my blog.

I am on the downward slope of middle age with three kids ages 8 to 27, which explains my relationship with coffee and wine. Or whatever helps me navigate life without wreaking too much havoc on myself or others. I am trying to transition to healthier options like meditation and personal growth (sufficiently vague I know) but it’s hard because I also live with depression and have a lot of baggage taking up space in my mental mansion. I’m trying to unload it and move forward.

If one person reads this blog and what I say resonates with, helps, or inspires her (I use that pronoun, because that one person is probably my mom. Thanks, Mom!) then what I’m doing has some value and meaning. I felt alone for so long in what I was going through, like I was the only one. I want others out there to know, YOU’RE NOT ALONE! I’m here, too, going through similar stuff (depression, over drinking, raising kids, trying to live a more fulfilling life). Let’s talk about it. Let be honest and vulnerable together. Or at least, I’m going to do that.

If you like this blog, please subscribe to it and share it with others.

Thanks, y’all.
