Life, as it turns out…

…is one endless set up.

And I’m ok with that.

Hi, my name is Meghan Smith and I’ve been an addict for two months. I freely admit that I turn on the TV at random hours of the day in the hopes that Jon and Kate plus eight will be on. In the past 24 hours I’m two for two. It is by far my favorite thing to watch. I like watching the sextuplets. I like the racks and racks of tiny shoes. Jon and Kate crack me up. Yes, I am most definetly an addict. Read the rest of this entry »


Ironman: The Review

I like superhero movies. A lot.

I like special effects, plots that are so comic book-ie you can practically smell the ink and¬†heroesthat really make you want to believe. That means that whenever I go into any kind of superhero movie, I am predisposed to like it. It’s my genre.

But even with that, I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of relying on a quick tranformation and long emotional adjustment (ie Spiderman, X-men) this story was more about the man behind the mask than it was about blowing people up. The story was not as predictable as most, excepting the ever-present “I’m in love with a moody vigilanty who doesn’t treat me right” romantic subplot, that is. Read the rest of this entry »

(That was supposed to be triumphant horn noises like in old Disney movies.)

Since my sister and brother in law have become shockingly negligent in the amount and length of their posts (full time jobs and making a human will do that to you) I am stepping in to fill the void.

How? you ask.


I created an entire blog devoted solely to my artistic endeavors. I figure I have enough stuff saved up that I can do one post/day for a month. By that time I should have MORE done. Hopefully. It’s just visual art. I’ll keep the stories and poetry over here at walking in the rain.

So please check out Mist Over the Water and enjoy!

I’m Back!

It’s been a long time since I posted anything of substance, and even longer since I had any real desire to post. But the creative juices have been given the leisure time that they needed so here I am!

I’ve been working for the past six months at Village Theatre and doing very little else. Somehow, having to talk on the phone in a pleasant voice for long periods of time makes me too tired to do anything creative. Talking on the phone combined with paperwork and a stressful atmosphere guarantees that nothing else will get done.

But I quit that job (in rather spectacular fashion) and have spent the last few weeks enjoying the people in my life. Jennifer and Aaron were here for two weeks, which was SO much more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Then my friend Nikki came for four days. I lived with Nikki in New Zealand and she is on a round-the-world trip with God right now. We were incredibly blessed to have her stop in our humble corner of the world.
