Hey there!

This stream of consciousness is intended to be an unfiltered account of my journey to fight my way to a healthier, happier life. One day at a time, one step at a time, one organically-grown-emotionally-raw blog post at a time…

    2022-08-13 Denver Road Trip Day 3: This could really be a good good life…

    Day 3 of our little road trip adventure and it was definitely a busy one.  “We” started the day by hitting the free breakfast at the hotel which was terrible. So bad that we had to get donuts elsewhere before moving along to the next thing. I say “we” in quotes because yours truly hasn’t […]

    2022-08-12 Truthtelling From the Middle of Nowhere

    In the last few days, I’ve driven about 8 hours to get where I’m currently sitting. I’m more, half-laying than sitting, propped up with pillows behind me in a bed in a 2.5-star hotel somewhere that’s really the middle of nowhere. It doesn’t matter where. The bed is in the middle of a room which […]

    2022-08-11 Denver Road Trip Day 1: Ogallala and Winning the Lottery

    Today I’m waking up in Ogallala, Nebraska. Mostly because I’ve gotten to that point in my life that I can no longer stand to drive the 8 hours it takes to get to Denver from Omaha in one shot. Does that make me old?  Probably.  Normally when I write about my travels, I start on […]

    2022-08-08 The Way a Heart Beats…

    808… like a drum.  For the past several weeks I’ve been feeling depressed. Not just sad or down, but a serious, “I have no desire to do the things that normally bring me joy” vibe. I’m pretty sure people who are depressed don’t use the word “vibe” to describe how they are feeling but I’m […]

  • 2022-08-04 Exploring the Writing Woes (again) Despite Everything Going My Way

    2022-08-04 Exploring the Writing Woes (again) Despite Everything Going My Way

    Yup.. It’s been about a month–over four weeks–since the last time I wrote anything. That’s something that has not happened in a very long time. It could mean one of three things: Life is going really great and I have zero complaints, problems, grievances, or irritations. Life is so busy and or rotten that I’m […]

    2022-07-05 Welcome to July and the Conclusion to “Who Cares”

    Well, friends… we’ve delicately tip-toed into July and are officially in the second half of 2022. Here’s what I know on this fine Tuesday (that feels like a Monday) after the long holiday weekend.  4th of July was ok, but I’m so over the fireworks? I thought the economy was hurting? Not according to the […]

  • 2022-06-28 A Day In The Life

    2022-06-28 A Day In The Life

    Today’s experiment, after waking up at 4 AM and only four hours of sleep (I was revising poems till midnight), is data mining a “day in the life.” It’s a little research project I dreamed up after having not just one or two run-ins with my errant brain and its memory flaws, but a whole string of seemingly unconnected instances.

    2022-06-22 What Would Single Miss SugarCookie Do?

    Now that the writing challenge BS is over, I can get back to my shows. Good timing too cuz I think I’m gonna be able to treadmill again soon. This toe injury was a serious bummer, but it did allow me more time for other tasks. I suppose I should try to keep on writing […]
