It’s already October

It is almost half way through October and the only colors that have changed in Florida are the colors of license plates as all the northern snowbirds begin to crawl their way down for the winter. Today was the coolest day we have had in eons, only hitting 77*F around 10am. It is now after… Continue reading It’s already October

Conscious? Perhaps…

I never know if I'm awake or sleeping lately, but for all my exhaustion I surely can't be sleeping, so I guess that's not the case. I've been gone from here a long time and I miss it as much as the friends I haven't spoken to in years. I wonder why I don't come… Continue reading Conscious? Perhaps…

All is fair in Love and War…

I can't hear that without about a dozen cliches popping into my head and about twice that many corny movie scenes with vengeful damsels in distress or cocky knights in questionable armor. Where does that quote even come from? Surely some twisted tragic romance. I'm sure it didn't end well.  I don't think it's true,… Continue reading All is fair in Love and War…

November 28th

Thoughts on a Monday... I've only got nine days until Davis leaves Florida and I'm not dealing with that well.  I've stretched myself too thin socially in the past couple of weeks and it's really taken its toll. I need a recharge.  My sister had a baby. Did I mention that? Also I started back… Continue reading November 28th

November 18th

Today was the last day of school before vacation. It dragged. But now it's done.  Tomorrow is my next younger sisters 24th birthday. We are celebrating tonight at a Brewery and then having dessert at her house. It's going to be an interesting crowd.  Her baby is due Tuesday but it could come any time.… Continue reading November 18th

Silence

It makes sense that after talking to eight year olds all day that I wouldn't want to continue vocalizing, come end of day. But what is quite inexplicable is that I cannot find the words that have been squashed back for another time - the words whose time and place is not an elementary classroom… Continue reading Silence

Two Lives Diverged in a Wood…

Robert Frost's words come to mind quite often, even when they technically do not apply. I hope that my loose metaphorical use of his poetry does not take away from his work, but that it may instead set the scene for the topic at hand. My best friend in high school was a girl named Allison.… Continue reading Two Lives Diverged in a Wood…

An Old Year’s New Year

From a word document dated 1/1/2012 It’s hard to believe that a year has ended. A year that brought with it more twists and turns than was ever thought possible. Where the time has gone, we shall never know. We took wrong paths, we made serious mistakes. We dreamed and made wishes without knowing the… Continue reading An Old Year’s New Year

Zzz

You know you're becoming woefully accustomed to getting up at 4am for work when you wake up for no reason at 415am on days when you don't work, and haven't set an alarm. Another significant indicator is being tired as hell by 8pm. Is this what having no life feels like? Nevermind, I know the… Continue reading Zzz

Castles and Nomads

I had an unexpected conversation the other night that has stayed with me all day. I was talking to my older brother about life; how we've changed since we were kids, and what we thought we'd be doing and what we thought we'd be like. My brother and I don't often have what you'd call… Continue reading Castles and Nomads
