  1. Pieces of Xmas...the remains of the day.

    My day began with a very sweet text from Monsieur saying "I am waking up to the Christmas gift of life and knowing that what we hold, you and I, is special. Loving, kind, respectful, and electrically...
  2. I'm back, bi*ches!

    Enough of me wallowing in my sadness in much the same way a dog scent-rolls in whatever. Really, it's hard to get a pooch to stop until he's absolutely ready to do so. Well, guess what? I'm ready....
  3. Ho ho ho...

    I'm not very good with holidays. No clue why, but I feel more alone this time of year than any other time. I won't dwell on it and will absolutely make the best of it but I have a little bruised...
  4. Down for the count...

    I had the best of intentions today. I was going to get up and hit the gym, work my tushy off a bit, come home and then go knock out some sales at work. It was not to be. I woke up queasy and really...
  5. Whirlwinds

    I've succumbed to a miserable little cold that's been nipping at my heels since I last wrote. Is it any wonder? My life has been non-stop madness with a back drop of cold pounding rain. It seemed...
  6. Of kites and dreams...

    I get pensive and feel a tiny bit of melancholy this time of year. My reflection in the mirror gazes back with a puzzled look wondering how we both got to this point. I have no answer. I'll push a...
  7. The tale told by an idiot

    It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing.
    Shakespeare ~ Macbeth Act V, Scene V

    I think that's my favorite quote from Shakespeare because it seems so apt at...
  8. Down and up

    At least I now know why I was achey last weekend. Flu. Lucky me, I didn't get it as bad as anyone else I know but maybe my amateur doctor status doesn't imbue me with good diagnosing skills. Anyway,...
  9. Kindnesses

    My great grandparents took a boat from Russia to settle in America right before the turn of the 20th century. They prayed, like all of the many other lost souls on their journey, that the life...
  10. Thanks! Amazingly enough, many years later she...

    Thanks! Amazingly enough, many years later she sent me a friend request on Facebook. Hahaaaaa.
  11. Bully bully

    I've always championed the underdog, always evened out the score in life when I see people treating others unfairly. Even when it's me on the bad end of that arrangement. I speak up, say why it's...
  12. Being there

    I had a tale to tell this evening of my ultimate triumph over someone who bullied me mercilessly and cruelly as a young girl. A victory long in coming that helped define who I am today and became a...
  13. Of bitterness

    When I moved out from my life with J, I went through all of the notes, letters, and greeting cards I had kept safe in my cherished wooden antique trunk. I reveled over stories written to me weekly by...
  14. Thanks! I am really affected by the weather, for...

    Thanks! I am really affected by the weather, for some reason...
  15. This grey godless day

    A grey godless day, a sort of forced march through overcast Los Angeles weather and my own flat mood. After the ebullience of last week's peak moments of buying a new car and scoring a new job, I'm...
  16. The good, the bad, and the Frenchman

    The good, but not so surprising news, is that the Gods have once again smiled down on me. At long last, I can bid adieu to my completely insane boss whose idea of boundaries is stifled by her...
  17. The winds

    The winds of change are howling through my mind. My soul. Can't push them away or ignore them, just embrace what comes. Regardless of how this current hand plays out, change is on my horizon in...
  18. I do persevere

    I am a bit like a dog with a bone when it comes to goals or something I want badly. Hence the "no gray areas" aspect of me. That strikes me the most about me. That and the uncanny ability of being...
  19. The Last Temptation of Grokalicious (apologies to Kazantzakis)

    I have become easily tempted by all things forbidden. Well, not all. Just the ones that apply to our Primal lifestyle. What does this mean? In plain and honest talk, it portends me utterly falling...
  20. Lily Tomlinson was hilarious as Ernestine. My BFF...

    Lily Tomlinson was hilarious as Ernestine. My BFF in elementary school got to be her in our daily games. :)
  21. Tiptoe through the tulips (with me)

    I completely embrace the power of wishes and getting what I want. Really. Most of my friends have faith in what Mick Jagger said. That "You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime you...
  22. It's been a great day

    About to go out with friends to celebrate a birthday and All Hallows Eve, so just a quick note today. I had an interesting day. A pre-dawn text from Monsieur (le eye roll), a big sale, a great...
  23. This writing thing

    The funny thing about growing up with successful writers for parents is that I never for one moment enjoyed writing or thought that I had any abilities in that realm. This, in spite of constant...
  24. Thanks for that. Yes. I'm letting my light shine...

    Thanks for that. Yes. I'm letting my light shine any and every way that I can. In all of its glory. I really appreciate your kindness.
    :)
  25. Love's labour's lost

    Sometimes it just all falls apart. Even with the best intentions.

    The playful banter in the beginning, the intensity of our connection from the first moment of hello. The music that I'd play...
