The Voice Whispers To Me

It’s 6:31AM. I’m awake. In these days of no certain schedule, we try to keep busy, to keep our own schedule. But sometimes we go to bed earlier than normal, or maybe we don’t and I just wake up because my brain never shuts off. It whispers to me, we are not safe. Coffee. WestonContinue reading “The Voice Whispers To Me”

Eight Years

Eight years ago today a doctor walked into my hospital room and told me I had leukemia. Since then I’ve periodically asked a question of myself.  Not, as you might expect, why me, or even just why.  There is no why.  It was random, not predictable, and as far as we know not preventable.  ItContinue reading “Eight Years”

Gratitude and Grace

  I had a great conversation the other night about gratitude and grace and the things that are important in life.  It was lovely, and a good reminder.   It’s very tough to not be overwhelmed by the things in life that don’t go as planned, the things in the world that are heartbreaking.  It’sContinue reading “Gratitude and Grace”

Time to Look in the Mirror

  We see what we want to see.  That’s part of the problem. I was perusing Facebook, which I must say prompts many posts on this blog, and I saw a theme.  Negativity.  Plain and simple. There were posts about “those” people.  Of one sort of another.  You know them, the idiots, the ridiculous, theContinue reading “Time to Look in the Mirror”

This is What Marriage Looks Like

It happened.  Wow. Many of our friends and family members are celebrating right now.  My Mom just sent us a text message expressing her excitement about the decision from SCOTUS today on marriage equality.  To me it’s always a beautiful thing when love wins. For those wondering what gay marriage, which from now on willContinue reading “This is What Marriage Looks Like”

Trading Up to a Marriage We Already Had

It’s the 12th of June.  We’ve been legally married for 10 days now.  I don’t feel any more married than I did before, though we were told, immediately after getting the deed done, that now if we split up we’d have to get divorced like everyone else.  That made us laugh. In 2003 my lifeContinue reading “Trading Up to a Marriage We Already Had”

Crying Tears of Joy, In the Garage

Ever find yourself sitting in the garage after you’ve pulled in, unwilling to get out of the car because the song that’s playing is making you feel something? That was me just now, and damn, it is great to be alive. Every once in awhile I find myself, because of a song, or a video,Continue reading “Crying Tears of Joy, In the Garage”

Mom and Don’s

Here I am blogging from Mom’s place. She and I made the drive down earlier today, stopping at Starbucks on the way. Tea latte and a donut. Yum. We got down here and wandered around outside a little and then sat outside for awhile. Mom then went and picked some fresh tomatoes and we hadContinue reading “Mom and Don’s”
