This post... Sometimes I know what I want to write and how I want to say it and it all falls into place. This is not one of those times. I started out thinking about my world spinning, as the world does, and how sometimes you can almost feel it turning. And I was going … Continue reading And the band played on…
More on Food
Trigger warning: More on food and other unsexy things... Ran across this quote today: “When we give up dieting, we take back something we were often too young to know we had given away: our own voice. Our ability to make decisions about what to eat and when. Our belief in ourselves. Our right to … Continue reading More on Food
Me and Food and Existential Kink
** Trigger Warning: This post will discuss eating habits, feelings about food, weight, bodies, society and who knows what else. If that type discussion is uncomfortable for you, please skip it or do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself. Now here's an ocean picture before we start. I did a wonderful … Continue reading Me and Food and Existential Kink
She waited anxiously, trying to slow her breathing. 'They probably won't take me anyway,' she thought. 'Who knows how many candidates they've had?' She took a deeper breath. 'But they did call me in for an interview.' She felt her heart pounding. She was alone in the room, a small anteroom with a desk and … Continue reading Rebooting…
Wednesday and Sunday
Five nights a week, she got herself ready for bed, jsut like anyone would. Ok, it was a little bit different for her because she was required to write in her journal. She could write about anything she wanted, but her work needed to include certain elements. She needed to complete the page where she … Continue reading Wednesday and Sunday
No Cheese with this Whine

In fact, I don't want to do anything. I have a presentation coming up in a couple of weeks, to … Continue reading No Cheese with this Whine
The Nail Saga Continues
If you missed my earlier posts, no worries, I can bring you up to date on my quest to find the just right nail salon pretty quickly. I went to one salon and they were too hard and I went to another salon and they were too soft. I went back to my regular place … Continue reading The Nail Saga Continues
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Better days today - MP's daughter seems to have a plan and she's not feeling overwhelmed with despair, not when she talked to MP anyhow. So that's all good. The story in our heads has changed and even though it's still bad and still hard, it no longer weighs as much. Thanks to those of … Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day!
Sad Days and Me
MP’s daughter is sick - one of his daughters, the one who lives far away. Cancer that was in remission spread - and the doctors are offering a fairly pessimistic prognosis. Of course they’re not always right, but she’s pretty sick. MP is tough, but you know. I’m worried and distressed, and she was already … Continue reading Sad Days and Me
Book Club, Anyone?
I started reading a book called Existential Kink, by Carolyn Elliot. It is fascinating. Anyone here read it? I already disagree with her on some things (not a surprise to anyone who knows me well.) But they're not show stoppers, I just have to make some mental adjustments. It's not a kinky book - not … Continue reading Book Club, Anyone?
