Saturday, June 04, 2016      9 comments

Here I am almost 5:30am my mind spinning and retyping this blog over and over. It is from watching two documentaries. "Carb Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat" (on hulu) & "Sugar Content" (on netflix). The better of the two is the "Carb Loaded: A Cu... Read more

The continued "likes" and support of my activities, as well as encouraging words of a select few have brought me tiptoeing back here. Cautiously and optimistically looking around seeing if I am ready to come back. I missed my friends and the sup... Read more
A few words...
Saturday, September 12, 2015      6 comments

I have tried over the last few weeks to figure out how to say what has happened and why I haven't been around. I never knew how to put it in words. Then of course while doing dishes, it came to me. No need to go into my feelings and details. I n... Read more

Thursday, July 16, 2015      4 comments

"Quick" blog about my walk/hike today. I will first say it was brutal. In a good way. I have been putting it off because I wanted to get out to nature and do a hiking path. Not much of that close. So I decided to pick a road and follow it till I... Read more

Part VI: So Now What For Me?
Saturday, June 20, 2015      3 comments
