  1. The Last Temptation of Grokalicious...new adventures, new laughter, new fun

    Things are not always what they seem on the surface and fear or lack of belief only sharpens that. We should always take a moment when confronted with this and take a deep breath, along with a step...
  2. Turning the other cheek

    Since I last wrote, the world has come apart a bit. Ok, a lot. But, that's good because it's a definite turning point. When Jesus said to turn the other cheek, I think he meant to turn away from the...
  3. Yes, we absolutely become who we are because of...

    Yes, we absolutely become who we are because of what we experience and it sounds like you've had a small dollop of pain in your past as well. It's a part of what's molded you, much like me.

    But,...
  4. Eh, Pam, I'm sorry to stir up that loss again. I...

    Eh, Pam, I'm sorry to stir up that loss again. I know what you mean about that particular sort of dignity. It's quite moving and pure and unless you've witnessed it first hand, unfathomable. In some...
  5. I remember right after I hugged my Dad that I...

    I remember right after I hugged my Dad that I started feeling detached from my body. Like the tornado of emotions whirling through me for the past few months had finally separated from me physically...
  6. The unforgivable

    It feels like such a long time ago since I last wrote in here. It just wasn't in me to write and I won't do anything half heartedly. But, here I am again at last.

    Much more drama with my mother. I...
  7. I loved your tale of confronting the Bogeyman...

    I loved your tale of confronting the Bogeyman during soccer practice because it so clearly illustrates just what body language can convey. If we only could truly all embrace our power like that. How...
  8. Up and then down for the count...

    Thanks, that is always nice to read. I've also been looking into some short story competitions (several of which have 15K as the prize). I read the works of previous winners and I'm in. One in...
  9. Thank you so much. These waters are fine and...

    Thank you so much. These waters are fine and lovely, so here I will stay. Along with this I'm going to take a big bite out of the impossible possibilities that lie ahead and start a novel. I can do...
  10. Renewal

    I keep going no matter what and don't care much for maintaining status quo with zero shifts. It's a state of being that frightens me as much as change paralyzes so many others. My life is always an...
  11. Silver linings

    On this gray Godless day, I am searching for some meaning while listening to Beck as a moody backdrop to my Sunday. I have a theory. I am simply more viscerally aware of the subtle inflection of...
  12. Each perfect moment

    I'm at an emotional crossroad regarding my wide-spread cadre of several long time friends. It's either time that I evolve to a higher understanding and acceptance of people who are mostly negative or...
  13. Insomnia reigns supreme

    My edgy feelings are keeping me awake this evening, along with my never-ending affection for over analyzing everything. Not good bedfellows. I miss the Frenchman. We usually touch in with each other...
  14. All's well that ends well...

    I'm finally in possession of my new Mac Air and, although a learning curve exists, am loving it. The weekend was absolute magic with workouts that flowed and muscles that cooperated and that fabulous...
  15. Oh where, oh where has Grokalicious been? ...

    Oh where, oh where has Grokalicious been?

    Sans iPad (stupid thing died in a fit of overuse) and waiting for my Mac Air to be built (extra RAM, don't ya know). I won't use my work laptop for such...
  16. In spite of it all

    In spite of all of the loveliness layed at my feet, even though the Gods so kindly graced my birth with many gifts... I must confess to feeling emotionally bankrupt at the moment. I want more from my...
  17. The spirit of renewal

    I love the symbolism of renewal and rebirth that spring and Easter represent. This is, in fact, my happiest time of year. A time in which I feel that anything and everything is possible. That I can...
  18. Trust

    My sunny disposition has seen me through most of my days even when life was my unpredictable best friend. So, what pulls me through those dark moments? Trust. I simply know in my heart that...
  19. Thanks! I can always use a nice morning smile...

    Thanks! I can always use a nice morning smile from someone. The words really write themselves!
  20. The irony of it all

    I should not drink. This, from a woman who is immersed in the wine business. I change when I drink as most people do but especially with all of the clean eating and intense workouts that my life...
  21. Somersaults

    It's been a long week and not nearly enough weekend. Friday, we had our mid-year reviews at work. And, the feelings of some of my teammates leading up to it seemed rife with the same fears of the...
  22. Bits and pieces. Love, luck, and ignoring superstition

    The bits and pieces of the weekend. Since Friday night, I have had no hunger, metaphorically or otherwise and zero idea why. Without my usual joie de vivre I feel a little empty. Oh, I still go...
  23. Hike to the top

    Just a gorgeous day with soft caressing breezes, warmth, deep blue skies. At 80 degrees, it's hard to remember that it's winter although I know there are no real seasons here. Not complaining!

    A...
  24. Charming people live up to the very edge of their charm...

    and behave as outrageously as the world lets them.

    I can attest to this although I do go back and forth with myself whether being intentionally charming is manipulative, or not. I've mostly used...
  25. If all the world is a stage, I want script control!

    What an amazing weekend, really. Saturday's workout in the gym was my very own testimony to perfect form resulting in not-nearly-as-perfect DOMS. A sore tushy, barking shoulders, and abs that mock me...
