...to rage against the heavens, my language and attitude born of hell. I want to curse the day, to use my ire to rend the sky, letting lighting strike, the thunder shaking the very core of this Earth's foundations. I want to abdicate responsibility, to treat others as they have treated me with not a … Continue reading 21 of 40 – I want to scream…
Found a really nice place to move to. Made all of the arrangements. Will have spent $1900 to move in (not counting upcoming utility deposits, if any and the purchase of household goods), and now the doubt is creeping in despite the Universe having shown me great favor thus far. For which I am soul-filled … Continue reading Quickie
July Camp NaNo I was off to a pretty decent start - got a few words or so ahead of the game then didn't do a lick of writing these past two (or is it 3?) days. Sigh. So much going on right now (as you'll see below) that I'm living in "overwhelmed" mode. I … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces, again

Dear Mom, Here we are at day seven and it would appear I've been adopted by a rabbit. A big, fluffy, pretty brown - the biggest rabbit I've ever seen. When I asked one of the counselors about it, she said there's a whole warren of the big bunnies just outside the camp grounds. They … Continue reading 2nd Letter from Camp
Have you seen the movie, The Magic of Belle Isle? It's a little piece of fluff staring Morgan Freeman and Virginia Madsen. When I say fluff, I mean, it's the movie version of the finest, biggest batch of cotton candy you've ever eaten. You will more than likely need to brush your teeth vigorously after … Continue reading “Tell Me What’s Not There.”
Funny what pain does to me. I'm sure I've written it before, so forgive me if you've read this, but my headaches most often lead to inspiration. Not sure why but the pain takes me to a higher plane - I tend to have BIG FEELINGS when the headache fairy is trying her best to … Continue reading Monumental “Ah ha” Moment – I have found my “Gift”
Sigh. I saw this cartoon YEARS ago and it's stuck with me ever since. It sums up my thoughts on how most therapy should work. Well, maybe not exactly, but close enough. I mean, I spent time in therapy - I went in with two stipulations. Number one, no drugs. I was self-medicating enough as … Continue reading Interlude.
There’s still love in the world. It’s never too late to have one of you own. So looking forward to being able to share my story :-). Thank you to blogger James Michael Sama for posting this. (click and give his blog a read through, I’m sure you’ll find quite a few posts of interest 🙂 )
So, you think that stories of epic, lifelong romance are reserved for novels or movies? Think again.
This couple, Cynthia and Howard, first met over 60 years ago. Today, after all that time apart, they sit side by side on Martha’s Vineyard as husband and wife. The course of events that brought them together again is not only the very definition of true love, but it is an inspiration to all of us that men who are loving and romantic to their very core are still out there, and so are the women who appreciate them. Cynthia was used to having groups of men tease her when she was younger. The one man who actually held her attention? Howard, the gentleman.
Proof that the concepts we discuss on this website, while rare and difficult to find in our generation, are still very real in the world we live in.
