  1. 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...
  2. Frenchy...redux

    Frenchmen can be very persuasive. And, emotions can certainly run rampant, especially on the anniversary of my Father's death (yesterday). I managed to ostracize everyone throughout the day. My Mom,...
  3. Those shattered pieces

    Just a handful of silly emotions, really. They seem to have shattered into tiny little shards, torn apart by blinding realizations and small painful gasps of simply knowing. Yes, the pendulum still...
  4. More connection

    No matter how good it gets, or how much I appreciate it, I always want more. More happiness, more magic, more fun. And definitely more love. Not that I don'r adore the Frenchman because I most...
  5. Soaring again.

    I've always believed that no matter what happens in life it's best to approach everything with a healthy dollop of humor. If you can find something to laugh at in your situation, you're halfway (or...
  6. Of course

    Thanks. Yes, I am chill with all of it (except walking off a curb and getting hit by that plane you spoke of!). I'm definitely approaching this with grace and strength and my usual dollop of humor....
  7. Utterly and completely overwhelmed

    I can't see the forest for the trees. I don't know what is supposedly normal for me with my condition and what should give me pause. I feel very much alone in this except for the Frenchman and my...
  8. The way we laugh

    I had a great weekend. Saturday, the Frenchman and I took an urban hike in Santa Monica. We walked from the most western point of Ocean Ave all the way to Venice, laughing and making up stories about...
  9. The telltale heart

    Before I get into my day with the cardiologist, let me just remind you and myself that I am a control freak. Not in the sense that I want to control others just that I feel that controlling my food...
  10. Catching up

    I've awakened every day with the best of intentions for writing a blog entry. It was simply not to be. In fact, I've been lucky to even make it to the gym (but I have, like clockwork, go me!). Just...
  11. Loss is never easy, whatever guise it takes, but...

    Loss is never easy, whatever guise it takes, but it's something that affects all of us. I can only hope that in some small way that my openness helps people somehow. These feelings are raw and...
  12. Well, you absolutely just brightened a gray...

    Well, you absolutely just brightened a gray flatline day. Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm beaming!
  13. Musing on life's roller coasters

    It's been an intense couple of days emotionally. I had a long day Friday with meetings and driving and fatigue (on the heels of both a poor night's sleep and an alarm clock set at 4 am). By the end...
  14. Yes, yes.

    Funny, yesterday I was bemoaning to myself my lack of words from the heart here. All of the words that have come from me (in my mind) have seemed so banal. Then you posted this:

    " Originally...
  15. A Tale of Two Cities

    My life today was a bit like the opening line of Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities." (Ehhh, yet another literary apology). I had the best of times expressing my solidarity with the iconic messages that...
  16. O frabjous day. Callooh! Callay!

    I'm feeling fairly marvelous today. Well enough to quote Lewis Carroll and the Jabberwocky, anyway. Why, you might wonder. Well, today was the first time in ever-so-long that I didn't have to work at...
  17. Excuse me...your humanity is showing.

    So, that's a bit of a wake up call. To find out you might have something wrong with you over which you have no control. God, that's sobering. It wasn't a splash of icy awakening when I first heard...
  18. Back with the living...

    Can you say YAY YAY YAY!!!!!? I feel great. Lots of energy, little coughing, zero congestion. I only needed a half dose of cough syrup, don't feel sick, and am actually going to go have a bite out...
  19. Up, up, and away

    Let's just say I am not in any pain. Not coughing either. Just floating out there in la-la land but definitely getting better. My little world was shaken a bit this morning though. A Doctor called me...
  20. Three weeks of being ill

    You'd think I'd learn from pushing myself too much. But, I never seem to embrace that lesson. I've been sick off and on for three weeks now. The moment I felt better I'd go back to working out too...
  21. Listen to your body

    I need to learn this lesson. My body has warned me several times about dealing with the stress of changing jobs, of not drying off after rain storms, of going out with sopping wet hair, overdoing...
  22. Fat and loathing in Los Angeles

    Ha, nothing quite that dramatic, I just fancied the title. Having said that though...oh my!!! I have gained weight. I weigh more than I have since I lost all of my weight. Not close to my highest but...
  23. 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...
  24. 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....
  25. 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...
