National Literacy Month: What book got you hooked on reading?

I’m still clean­ing up the blog, try­ing to com­bat link rot. Some­how, I fell into look­ing at the draft posts. This one is from 2009 and I haven’t the fog­gi­est notion as to why I did­n’t pub­lish it. Today’s prompt is from Barnes & Noble’s Face­book page: Sep­tem­ber is Nation­al Lit­er­a­cy Month. What book got you hooked […]

Scary Movies?

Anoth­er NaBloPo­Mo prompt: Do you like scary movies that make you jump? I’m not old enough to watch scary movies! I find them far too fright­en­ing, indeed, night­­mare-induc­ing. Sam required that I watch The Crow with him when we’d just start­ed dat­ing him (I can’t remem­ber why any­more) and, like a fool, I did­n’t refuse absolutely. […]

Jumpiness and Nerves

Back to the NaBloPo­Mo prompts: What do you do to cope when you’re ner­vous? I have a whole mess of diag­noses, includ­ing post-trau­­mat­ic stress dis­or­der and social anx­i­ety dis­or­der, so I feel jumpy and ner­vous fair­ly often. I’m on med­ica­tion that helps, and I have Ati­van that I can take if I must for panic […]

Happy Father’s Day!

I hope it was as won­der­ful for y’all as it was for us.  While Dad­dy was tak­ing a nap, I did a lit­tle work on the site here, con­tin­u­ing the process of migrat­ing things from the old for­mat into Word­Press. It’s going to take more time, but even­tu­al­ly, all the pages will be uni­form. Real­ly! If […]

The Great Outdoors

Plinky asked, “When was the last time you enjoyed the great out­doors?” Does a sub­ur­ban pool count? Because I was in one today, play­ing with my niece and nephews, chat­ting with my broth­er and sis­ter-in-law and par­ents. It was a love­ly part of our Father’s Day week­end cel­e­bra­tion. It has been a few years since […]

Half-full, Half-empty?

Today’s NaBloPo­Mo prompt: “Is the glass half-full or half-emp­ty?” It’s half-full, and things are get­ting bet­ter all the time.  Last night as I was sleep­ing I dreamt—marvelous error!— that I had a bee­hive here inside my heart. And the gold­en bees were mak­ing white combs and sweet hon­ey from my old fail­ures. –Anto­nio Machado
