The Race

Monday, February 07, 2011      5 comments

For those of you who know I'm a runner, this is not what you might be expecting. I didn't do a race this weekend, though one of my favorites was on Saturday, the annual Make-a-Wish run. I'm just not back at the point where I could run a signific... Read more

Do Re Mi

Friday, December 10, 2010      7 comments

I went for a walk today. I decided that I would combine running an errand with getting some exercise in finally, so I walked to the market for a few things I needed to get for a dish I was asked to bring to a church party tonight. I didn't need ... Read more

Hey Guys! Sorry I've been soo MIA for the last few months! Being sick in June (ALL of June!) really did a number on me both physically and mentally. I'd love to say I'm back in the game, but I'm not really. But I'm ready to consider the game aga... Read more

Another Aspect to April here

Sunday, April 11, 2010      13 comments

Summers here are hot. I mean, REALLY hot. Everything struggles to survive, to endure the heat - the animals, the plants, and the people. Rose bushes are working too hard to put out many blooms. However, in the springtime, as it's just getting ... Read more

I've been wrestling with health insurance red-tape today as I am (STILL) trying to get health insurance. I mean, how hard should it be? I'm very healthy, I hardly ever see the doc except for the required check-ups to get my prescriptions refille... Read more

Whatever it takes...

to win that battle of wills. Today, I won it twice, or near enough to my satisfaction. I had some free time today, so I went for a LSD run (long, slow, distance run, for my non-runner readers, not a drug-induced hallucinogenic one, LOL!) I ... Read more

Trying this instead...

March Update #1 - Self Checkup and Random thoughts

Monday, March 08, 2010      10 comments

So, I've just been feeling kind of out of it, disconnected and less motivated lately. A very dear friend (you know who you are!) started challenging me the other day about why that was, asking me what's going on in my life and what emotions I'm ... Read more

I did it because of the literary implications, LOL!

Wednesday, February 03, 2010      7 comments

As I was running errands today I was thinking about a particular friend who is going through a rough time this week, having just lost his mom. I pondered on those times when I was having similarly hard times, a death in the family, a child with ... Read more
