My name is Melene.  It’s pronounced “Mel-eh-knee”.

To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.  —  Mary Oliver

I believe our job as human beings is to pay attention to what’s happening in our inner and outer world.  This is definitely the work of writers so this blog is a collection of the things I notice as an attentive human being.

A few other things about me:

1.  I like winter.  (I live in Canada)
2.  I love lemon desserts.
3.  This makes me laugh:


Anything else you want to know about me will be revealed in the blog…eventually (I don’t open up easily).

I post on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

I welcome comments,  but if you choose to do so, please be kind.

If you like movies and/or MMA and you’re funny, let’s be friends on Twitter.  My Twitter name is @MeleneMcalmont.

      1. I am very interested in having guest posters at some point. I need time to think about it though. I would welcome any writing with a unique point of view. I’ll let you know and thanks for the offer!


  1. Dear Melene,

    Although I have only read a few posts, I’m certain I will come back for much more! Thank you for creating this tasteful, gracious blog!

    I hope you’ll skyrocket with this one.

  2. Hi Melene,
    I am Jasmin, a writer and blogger from Germany. I read almost all of your blog posts about high sensitivity and enjoyed them very much. Hence, I would like to ask, whether I may cite you in my book. Do you have an email address so that I could send you my “request”?
    Thank you so much for your consideration. I am looking forward to your response.
