    2022-09-28 Destined to Fail… 🩸

    I’m not worried about my health because I’m in great shape for my age. I’ll probably be saying that for the next 30 years. As I age, all the parts of my body that fail will likely be very appropriate for whatever age I might be when that happens. It’s been true for my eyes […]

    2022-09-18 The Most Underutilized Magic 8 Ball Answer… 🎱

    “Concentrate and ask again” There’s always a lot going on, you know, and life never seems to slow down. By now I’ve realized that this notion I always have that things are going to slow down any minute is a trick of the mind. And that I’m my own worst enemy, ensuring that it doesn’t. […]

    2022-09-14 The Daily Pep and Thoughts on Quitting

    The Daily What?  The Daily Pep. One of three podcasts I’ve recently taken to listening to on a regular basis. This holy trinity of podcasts includes “Chasing Life” which comes out once a week and is 10-60 minutes on a random topic like dreaming, playing in adulthood as you did as a child, and social […]

    2022-09-03 The One About Pleasing People

    Historically, I finish things I start. Unfinished business really tugs at my brain (and heart) and even worse if that involves tarnishing my reputation in someone else’s eyes. For all the times I’ve tried to throw my hands up and say “I don’t give a fuck what other people think” I should have learned that […]

    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 […]

    2022-08-08 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

    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 […]

    2022-05-24 Stacation Sensation…

    Last week I was on Stacation all week as most of the household was away on vacation. I’m not gonna lie.. it was glorious. The first half of the week was crazy-busy and after that took a few more days to wind down, but I did end up finding a good balance with work and […]

    2022-05-21 Sharing the Wheel with the Universe

    Lately when I mount my elliptical machine I’ve also got my fingers poised to press play on my new, totally binge-worthy show, A million little things. However, most days are a struggle to get it to play. Blame the cloud, the internet speed, my outdated iPad, or the mesh wifi I paid a pretty penny […]

    2022-05-17 Just One Thing, But a Big One…

    How can it possibly be Tuesday again already? The past week has flown by and I can’t help but hope that time can slow down a little this week because, as of yesterday, I’m officially on Staycation. Jim and his boys left for vacation yesterday and so it is just me and my two peeps […]
