Mid-November 2017 personal health status update 

You’re not imagining things; this is the first time in a while that I’ve written one of these.  I completely bypassed an end-of-October update.  Convenient for me, as there wasn’t really much to report.  😉 But there is now.  ❤ First things first.  Some of y’all know that my best friend’s mom (who was like … More Mid-November 2017 personal health status update 

Who rescued whom?

(Content Advisory, involving stray kitties that were originally abandoned but never harmed/injured, and ultimately rescued.  This story starts out a little sad, but has an incredibly happy ending!) ❤ Five years ago, around this time of year… The little black and white cat lay stretched out on the pavement outside the door of the Visitor … More Who rescued whom?

Always grieving <3

For the past few years, it seems like I have been in a low-level, almost stealthy state of grief. Sometimes it’s for loved ones, both the 2-legged and 4-legged varieties, who have passed on.  And there are plenty of those.  I’m always amazed when I hear that someone well into adulthood, usually in their 30s … More Always grieving ❤

And I’ll totally walk up and blow his cover.  “Yo, Death, who’d you … More The other shoe falls

Fresh (Word)pressing

Today (and yesterday), I was impressively productive–so much so that I took the luxury of some Me Time tonight.  With my partner firmly entrenched in a new episode of “Alaska State Troopers”, I sought out some fresh literary meat.

Everything(one) I touch … turns to stone

I’m getting the nagging feeling that I’m jinxed.  The Universe is sending some pretty strong hints in that direction, anyway.  I feel like I’m in the eye of the hurricane, myself relatively unaffected, watching the chaos and tragedy swirl around me with dizzying force. Thinking back, I reckon that it actually started with my “second … More Everything(one) I touch … turns to stone
