I really try not to whine too much when my mood dips, usually because I feel as if the things that are bringing me down don’t really matter all that much in the grand scheme of things. I mean, they feel of the utmost importance to me, but I kind of doubt anyone else would… Read More


I give up. I can’t write. I just have to face up to it. I’ve sat at this keyboard and started umpteen different posts and haven’t finished a single one of them. I’m blocked up like a dam. See? I can’t even come up with clever metaphors (And, yes, I know that was a simile.… Read More

Sometimes I wish I just had the flu. You know, you have a sore throat, a fever, a cough, maybe even a little upset stomach. There are very visible, outside symptoms. You can go to the doctor, he (or she) can look at you and compare the data in front of them to what they… Read More


I have been sort of reluctant to write about something going on with me, something I am not exactly used to. I may have touched on it a few times here, but I’ve never been brave enough to bring it fully into the light when it’s happened before. I’m not sure how many of you… Read More
