About

Welcome!

This blog is all about celebrating those unpredictable moments: unintended, quite by accident, or just plain mistakes. They’re bound to happen.

Examples of Bumbles:

  • Burning Ramen
    This qualifies as a Bumble, although technically it’s just a re-interpretation of directions is all. I’m sure it’s happened to you, right?
  • “Washing” your clothes in the dryer with powdered detergent.
    I rate this Bumble as an extraordinary achievement as someone, who shall remain nameless, did this for not one load, but three loads. Well done!
  • It’s also that absent-minded moment when you put the powdered sugar in the freezer.

By definition a Bumble is a:

verb (used without object), bumbled, bumbling: to bungle or blunder awkwardly; muddle.

noun: an awkward blunder.

On a deeper level, it’s not only an interpretation of life’s experiences, it’s a life philosophy. To make mistakes is to take chances, to explore, to test the limits. So, hopefully Bumbles happen on a regular basis. Here, I will celebrate them all. I will attempt to uncover life’s many oddities, quirks, snags, surprises, mishaps, and yes…missteps, both physical and mental. It is me, soul-searching and marveling at the many mysteries of life, in my search for answers and for the truth.

Make no mistake: The truth is in here.

I will also write fiction, because I like to create, and whatever other thoughts I can put on the page, to untangle and to make sense of it all.

…Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. — Neil Gaiman

I wish an immense amount of mistake-making Bumbles in your life. Bumble onward!

  1. I think between your search for knowledge and truth and my search for peace and zen we might just help each other grow a great deal. Happy to be reading (and writing) along with you, Amy.

  3. I think we are always in the process of figuring out our lives. We all arrive at new crossroads everyday. But that’s the fun part of life — figuring out which way to turn! Wonderful blog 🙂

      2. That’s so funny…because now I remember you, except I remembered you as Androgoth. Ah…Is Andro preferred?

        No worries. This blogosphere is far and wide, hard to keep up sometimes! It’s nice to reacquainted. 🙂

  5. I saw that you listed Shawshank Redemption on Maggie’s post as a favorite so I automatically knew that I’d like you. 🙂
    I also found your about page to be similar to mine. Yours is a little more coherent! haha!
    So I guess I’ll be seeing you around?

  6. Amy, we already have the school-hubby thing in common. After a closer look at your “about” page, I can also identify with your “search for truth.” I personally got tired of pretending to have all the answers. Now, I am openly admitting that I’m a walking mess. There is no shame in trying to figure out the complexities of life. No longer a lone ranger.

    1. Oh, thank you. Thanks for stopping by. I think we have an instant bond with our school-hubby connection. I could share some stories. In the end, he has a great job, and, well…I don’t!! I’m still searching, searching for answers. I’m still deciding what I want to be when I grow up. Someday, I know it will all click. At least, that’s what I’m hoping.

    1. Frank, definitely please return! I can’t ever promise what topics I will cover. I decide as I go along and write about whatever strikes my fancy. I know I have seen you over at Le Clown’s. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to visit. Well, it’s great to finally meet you, too.
