I Think I Might Be Wreck-It Ralph or A Saint

The kids and I went to see Wreck-It Ralph. Great movie…much much better than I thought it would be. And it made me cry. I don’t want to give the whole movie away, but the premise of the story is that there’s a bad guy in a video game who’s tired of being the bad […]

Dragonlore

I resumed doing something I haven’t done in a looooong time. Meditation. Add to that a bit more prayer, and I’ve been feeling a lot more…peaceful. My walk-in closet holds my meditative/prayer sanctuary but it had become quite unkempt. Clothes everywhere. An altar whose dust silently reprimanded me every time I looked at it. A […]

It All Begins With Peace

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: If you find yourself constantly accusing SEVERAL people of the same faults, perhaps it’s time to look…INWARD. If you have been complaining about being misunderstood, not by one person, but by many, for DECADES, it’s time to look…INWARD. If your life is such that arguments and […]

Turning Tides

I owe it to some people who have voiced concern about my welfare to let them know that the tide has turned and the sheer desolation has dissipated. For now. I cannot express how much it means to me to have people reach out. When you are complaining about loneliness, even one voice, one hand […]

Burials

It is only November 8th and this is already shaping up to be one of the most difficult Novembers I have ever experienced. There does not seem to be much to celebrate. A few days ago we got a notice that Punksin has a swim meet on my birthday. Mind you, we are told about […]

Short and Not So Sweet

There are life updates. Seriously. I’ve just been in too shitty a mood to go into them. Some of them have been good. Some of them have been not so good. And although in either case I tend to be pretty wordy with the here’s-what’s-happening-in-my-life posts, right now, I am so not in the fucking […]

The Valley of the Shadow of Death

October 4th, 9:00 AM: Punksin has been sick since last Saturday [the 30th] and now that she is on the tail end of it, Pudding is starting to show signs of also coming down with a cold. Throughout the night he has not slept well due to a stuffed nose. He awoke with a slight […]

The Black Wave Descends

So its day 2 of feeling like crap without a fucking clue as to why. All I know is, I am very emotional. And overwhelmed. And I can’t blame this on my impending period because it’s not really impending. As a matter of fact, right now I am heading right into my fertile period, which […]

A Black Wave Approaches

I have one word for you today: ugh. Add to that: blah. And blech. And any other word that implies feeling like utter crap. It’s not physical, although I think that’s coming. Punksin has been really sick for the past couple of days, fever, coughing, blowing her nose enough to go through a whole box […]

Thanks, But No Thanks? Really?

Today I was in a creative mood. Not a writing mood, more of a – visual arts kind of thing. So I worked on a vase that I’ve been crafting over several months. I find that while I’m doing that kind of work, I get more…reflective. When I’m writing, I need to concentrate on writing […]
