Whether…

Such a word that is, indica­tive of choic­es big and small. I’ve faced more change than choice in the past 30 days or so, thanks to a major rela­tion­ship change. But there have been choic­es, and there will be yet more choic­es in the future—choices that I will be mak­ing alone for the first time […]

What was your favourite part about returning to school?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: What was your favourite part about return­ing to school? That’s not an easy ques­tion. It was­n’t cool to acknowl­edge being hap­py to return to school each year, of course, so while I was glad, I did­n’t real­ly acknowl­edge it to myself. As a result, it is more dif­fi­cult to access those […]

NaBloPoMo, Again

I’m try­ing NaBloPo­Mo again! The theme this month is “Return,” although I’m not at all sure what the heck that’s sup­posed to mean. I got today’s post in just under the wire, obviously—but I did post! Tomor­row I’ll try to do it much bet­ter. And I’ll even include pho­tos of the new kit­ten! Maybe he’ll […]

Long Time, No Posts

I’ve been gone so long that I doubt any­one reads this any­more. If the feed is still in any­one’s read­ers, they’ll just be stunned to see some­thing come through! I am still out here. I have notes all over the places where I’ve start­ed writ­ing posts and then…something hap­pens. I get tired or dis­tract­ed or […]

Say goodbye to Kansas, Dorothy

From Live­Jour­nal’s “Writer’s Block” prompt: If you woke up sur­round­ed by doc­tors who told you that you’d been in a med­ical exper­i­ment since birth and that your entire life had been a dream, how do you think you’d react? I’d want to see the informed con­sent forms I’d sup­pos­ed­ly signed, and I would go over them […]

Thoughts about what I want in a theme

It’s been way too long since I start­ed, but did­n’t actu­al­ly fin­ish, the process of mov­ing all the old arti­cles on this site over into Word­Press. I got bogged down and did­n’t real­ly fin­ish, so the site stayed half-done and sucky. Now I don’t know if I should even both­er fin­ish­ing. Part of the trouble […]

Why I’m Thankful for Caller ID

Leaf I’m not avoid­ing my moth­er, but I get tense when I see her on my caller ID late­ly. We tend to stay in touch by email more than by phone, and if she calls it usu­al­ly means that there’s some­thing that can’t wait on email. We’ve lost five mem­bers of our extend­ed fam­i­ly since […]

September 2010 NaBloPoMo Theme: Art

I received the NaBloPo­Mo newslet­ter today and learned that this mon­th’s theme is Art. On the one hand, I thought, “I have noth­ing to say! I’m not an artist. Blah.” On the oth­er hand, I’m com­ing to real­ize that I must have order in my life or I start dying, bit by bit. “Ene­my of […]
