Rely on Resilience

Today I am grateful for my hunger for education. I never want to quit learning. There is always something new for me to know. I know that I am resilient and that if everything was taken away from me, I have the ability to work hard and bring myself back to living a healthy, happy…

I gave it my all…

Even when I was at my lowestWith nothing left to giveI gave to you my allSo that you may, still live And even when you plunderedI would feel the rainAnd underneath your dying breathI breathed in your pain You squander looks and attitudeA quibble on the floorRolling blankly ‘cross the kitchenBlithely out the door Even…

She’s the #1

Today, I am grateful that I have a partner who does her best to understand me; and then still loves me. She is the best! We work hard to help and support each other, always striving to improve our lives and the lives that surround us. I love her and right now I am missing…

not much

Gratitude isn’t a stretch… it’s simple. Sometimes just breathing… a sunny day… Getting one’s blog post in early. The little things.

Daily Life

Things certainly are not getting back to normal. I used to only wear a mask when I was working in a dusty situation; now I keep one in my car and a few extras in my backpack. Rather than wait in line inside of the bank, I wait in a line outside, six feet from…

Another Day

Today I spent a solid two hours at least, broken up through the day, attempting to give myself prescribed medication with a syringe. I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Two friggin’ hours… there’s a solid chance that it isn’t something for me to be doing. We’ll see what tomorrow brings… I’m grateful for the…

What is going on?

Is it a virus or a bacteria? How are we to know, when all of the doctors and scientist cannot agree? Forget about our politicians and news media; there is not half a brain amongst all of them put together. So I wear a mask when I am told. I have always washed my hands…

Habibi; I love you

It’s July 1st. This one is easy… it’s easy four times a year… so easy, that every day is truly easy. There’s a birthday every day; every single day. Today is Habibi’s. Global traveler. Imaginative warrior. Loving heart / Piss and vinegar. She is so far beyond the imagined in so many ways. And yet,…

A place to hang a hat

These past few months have been weird, to say the least, with all of the new rules for dealing with COVID-19. I have been moving around working at different places and staying in different places. This morning I woke up and literally did not know where I was. Last night was the first night that…

A Good Day to Die

I rarely have a complete day; one in which… at the end, I feel complete. of course there is more I’d like to accomplish, a lot more I’d like to learn, and some imaginings I’d like to experience… if today is my last day, it ended well. Why is today so complete? The only thing…
