All I do lately is feel. I get emotional at the weirdest things — like when a contestant won the bonus round on Wheel of Fortune. I totally cried. Years of being so fully in control of my feelings are being undone. It’s awesome. Things that may be contributing: — I’m meditating more these days. […]
This and other photos from my week of vacation are now on Flickr.
I was walking home from work today. It was cold. I had on a jacket and, because I didn’t have a bag or purse with me, I was carrying a number of folders in one arm. (I need to get some reading for work done before I can start my next project.) My head was […]
I feel great. I expected this trip to stress me out. I imagined scenarios that would break me. I thought I’d be so uncomfortable. But I’m happy. I feel surrounded by love. I met up with two friends from high school, and I had an amazing time. I feel rested. I’ve had great food. I’ve […]
November has been a very trying month. I feel so defeated. I had gotten really good at not letting myself get this way, but this month has made me want to give up. I’m lonely. I’m exhausted. I’m bored with a lot of things in my life. I’m making lots of stupid mistakes at work. […]

(The last song involved a reading of a turkey’s will. It was weird, but people laughed.) My Little was in the first row. I think […]
I never told you this but you have beautiful thumbs they are master belt-loop holders Note: Photo is of my wall in my living room. I don’t know yet if I will keep it this way.
1. I went to the doctor yesterday. I’ve gained a few more pounds. Maybe it’s all the brownies, pizza, cheese, chips and salsa, lattes, Dr Pepper, etc. (God, that sounded excessive.) I hate when people say “I’m trying to be good” when offered a piece of something delicious. Just say you don’t want it or […]
Note: I wrote this Friday afternoon. I read it Friday night at PJ. It had been seven years since I’d seen her, seven years since I’d kissed her in our high school auditorium, after losing a bet — probably on purpose — in which my punishment would be kissing her. I can now say it […]
