At Rainbow’s End

Plinky asked, “What’s at the end of a rain­bow?” Rain­bows Do they tru­ly end? I’ve nev­er found the end of a rain­bow, so I’m not at all sure. Until I see for myself, I’m not saying.

Sky Diving??

Today’s NaBloPo­Mo prompt: How do you feel about sky div­ing? I feel that it is a pur­suit best left to adren­a­line junkies, and peo­ple who have to do it for their careers. I’m glad para­chutes exist, but I sin­cere­ly hope that I won’t ever find myself in need of one! If I board a plane, […]

Bunjee Jumping?

Today’s NaBloPo­Mo prompt: Would you ever go bungee jump­ing? No way! For one thing, I am def­i­nite­ly NOT an adren­a­line junky. For anoth­er, I can­not imag­ine that the JERK when one reach­es the end of the cord and gets pulled back up is a very good feel­ing. I already have chron­ic pain prob­lems, so I […]

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 any more) and, like a fool, I did­n’t refuse […]

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 […]

On Driving

Plinky asked, “Would you say that you enjoy dri­ving?” Dri­ving Cars in a Traf­fic Jam Not real­ly. I’ve nev­er been one of those peo­ple who gets in the car just to go for a dri­ve. I use vehi­cles sole­ly as tools, in order to get from one place to anoth­er. I miss them sore­ly when […]

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?” Sea-swim­ming (Medi­um) 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 […]

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

Where I Hope to Be in Three Years

Plinky asked, “Where do you hope to be in three years?” The future I hope that I’m no longer dis­abled, that I’m ful­ly func­tion­al, tak­ing few­er med­ica­tions and see­ing few­er doc­tors. I’m work­ing on that goal now. I plan to be work­ing full time either for myself or in a posi­tion equiv­a­lent to the one I […]
