Holy cow! I am by no means a political junkie. I think I’m fairly informed on what’s going on. I’m aware of all the same-ole, same-ole bullcrap that goes on within both parties, but, boy….this election??!?! Can it get any crazier? Can there be any more dirt, corruption and skeeviness (sp?) waiting for us? Are … More Who knew we’d come to this?
Today will be another abbreviated post. Keeping my commitment to daily writing. I’m tired though, a little buzzed and in a bit of pain so it won’t be long.

Life right now is just about perfect. I say “just about” because there are little dark spots that stop it from being all … More 92 Days Later
The above graphic was posted on Facebook by a friend of mine. I read it early last week, and it’s been rattling around in my mind since then. I had to go back and read it a couple of times, and make sure that it was really there, that someone had really written those words, turned … More Brain Dump
Yesterday evening brought me one of the best conversations that I’ve had in the past 10 years, and it also brought the scariest moment of my life so far, which will only get worse. Yesterday, my son, the same one who has tentatively come back into my life after being absent for many years called … More Best and Worst
