One Year

I took Friday off of work. It was a holy day so I had to go to church, but that's not really why I took off. December 8th of last year Jefferson and I hung out all night and then at 4 in the morning he asked me to go on a date with him.… Continue reading One Year

Hello again…

It seems unreal that the last chance I got to assemble a post was just before Irma hit us. I feel bad that I never resurfaced to say that we were okay, but I'm here to say it now. We didn't get power back for what felt like forever, and internet and phones took even… Continue reading Hello again…

If you pray, please pray

Soooo, Irma is coming through Naples, my hometown. And we're here, me and my insane old dad. He won't go. He won't even go to a shelter nearby, let alone my boyfriend's house which is built to withstand at least some measure of hurricane. Even he and his family are leaving for the eastern coast… Continue reading If you pray, please pray

Part 1: It began in Orlando

I think that what I miss the most is the simplicity of life. It wasn't easy, no, it never felt easy. But it sure did feel simple. And it felt right. You didn't have to worry about what you'd wear or where you'd go or what you'd eat or who you'd see or what sort of place you'd sleep in...

But there are other times when the thing you don't see coming is maybe, possibly,… Continue reading Thoughts on a Tuesday: Maybe This is It

Once again

It seems that it's that time of year again. I've fought the last month or so of going stir crazy quite well, I think. No crazy hair cuts (yet), no running away, no bad poetry written. But it's that time of year for me.  It doesn't help much that I've spent the past week investigating… Continue reading Once again

Let the Good Times Roll

I think there are much better times to make life altering resolutions than when you're in the hot seat that is New Year's Eve. So I don't do that anymore.  Instead I'd like to spend today marveling at the year that has passed with all the good, the bad, and even the ugly, that has… Continue reading Let the Good Times Roll

Marriage Proposal?

I have had several marriage proposals in my life - most of which were from small children. Well, the serious proposals were from the kids, the joking proposals were from adults. What's always amused me even more than these proposals is when somebody 'offers' me a husband that isn't them. I've gotten this from girl… Continue reading Marriage Proposal?
