I use the “hate” word very infrequently, yet in this case, it suffices to say, that is exactly how I felt. A day dawned where I clearly “saw” how I was at war with depression. With my … Continue reading Nemesis Farewell
There I was, at ease, lying in the dental hygienist’s chair. That should have been my first red flag. I was at ease.

Now of course being I am only a mere human and therefore not nearly as intelligent as a Pileated Woodpecker, never saw it coming.

Sigh … A bombardment of questions hit me as Hubby asked how? where? what?, … Continue reading The Walk

“Honey, I need your help.” Hearing those words I inwardly groaned, ’cause I know how complicated matters can get with Hubby on a job. “How long will this job take?” Hubby replied, “15- 20 minutes”. Awh-right! No job of his to date [34 years] has ever been that fast. Taking a deep breath I said, … Continue reading Hold Steady The Light
Secrets. Half truths. Lies by omission … ways so many of us were taught how to interact with others. Honesty is surely not upheld much in today’s society, is it?
