Thursday, February 24, 2011      11 comments

The Ivy League Heptagonal Championships are in NY this weekend, and it got me to thinking. Why can't "I" be a track star? Well, truth of the matter is, I can't can't be. Dig those double negatives? I can be a track star. I just have to get... Read more

Dear Self, I know it's funny how I act that you are the last to know, but obviously you are the first to get the news. I'm coming clean that I have not been as committed to you as I desire, and I've let others get in the way of me taking ca... Read more

Um, before you try out the new concoction in the blender, maybe you should bite the bullet and taste the soymilk first. I made a lovely smoothie this morning, with blueberries, frozen banana and flaxseeds with soymilk, and then when I tasted it,... Read more

The good thing about being stressed about work, is that you can't sleep. If you can't sleep, you get up. So, I am up earlier than normal, allowing me extra time to spark, and make and eat breakfast, without wolfing it down on the way out the doo... Read more

I have just come inside from an hour of snow shoveling and cleaning off my car. 60 minutes of moving is MAMMOTH for me. I am stunned that I had not collapsed in a heap in the driveway. Maybe my version of shoveling, is the lazy man's version of ... Read more

You Don't Need A Reason

It's bliss. I recognize right where I am and I am loving my life, and I am loving who I am. Five-ish years ago, I moved from a job I loved, to a new city where I did not know how I would fit in, and how things would be. I left for 2 re... Read more
