Commitment is Exclusionary
Saturday, December 17, 2016      16 comments

That was the tile of one of Susan Peirce Thompson's recent vlogs: and I'm not supplying the link (it's easy to find) because for me the vlog itself was completely and utterly "jumping the shark". I had (sorry to be judgmental) little sympathy wi... Read more
Bob Marley: the Spark Connection?
Friday, December 16, 2016      20 comments

It was great reading the comments on the Bob Marley blog yesterday: lots and lots of stuff to think about. I do not in fact adopt the world view that "everyone's going to hurt me" -- in fact, I avoid people who don't matter who attempt it... Read more

Just Above Water . . .
Monday, December 12, 2016      29 comments

Imagine me with nostrils just above water . . . snortling away. Piteously. Yup, I'm surviving, but it's ridiculously difficult. My nostrils may be just above water, but my inner rebel has resurfaced in full force. Leaping furiously... Read more

Just Wanna Eat!!
Saturday, December 10, 2016      26 comments

Yesterday I was super-aware: even when I'm not "hungry" I'm struggling with that horrible "just wanna eat" feeling. I did NOT punish myself for my fridge over closet choice by dressing dowdy for work. I found some comfortable narrow blac... Read more
Chose the Fridge
Friday, December 09, 2016      26 comments

Fridge or Closet?
Thursday, December 08, 2016      35 comments

Sunday we managed to get our outdoor Christmas lights up-- strung across the verandaaaaah and around the garage too which requires standing pretty close to the top of a wobbly ladder : a ladder we bought for $5 at a garage sale shortly before w... Read more
