Becoming ME.
Friday, June 06, 2008      0 comments

I think I already AM me, I am just trying to pare things down a little, just like a sculptor, taking bits and pieces away from the artwork, here and there, until the form, the beauty, the art is revealed in everything that it was meant to be. Ye... Read more
Paving my way
Thursday, April 03, 2008      0 comments

When I look back at my “road” I think sometimes I have let other people and events put pavers in for me. And I let them mess the pattern up. No matter how well intentioned or hateful they were, I am still the one that let them do it. It’s a cons... Read more
Moving Past Things
Thursday, March 20, 2008      1 comments

I actually think that you move THROUGH things. I know it's semantics, but "past" implies, to me, that you are viewing something and not touched by it. And when it comes to traumatic life experiences, that's not possible to dispassionately move p... Read more

Just started realizing that my journal entries were no longer posting as a blog! It takes me a while some days. Well, after almost 3 years of silence and rejection, there may have been a break through with my niece and her mother. My brother die... Read more
Heroes and Cowards
Tuesday, October 30, 2007      0 comments

I agree, mostly, I have MANY opportunities to be a coward every day. But I also think that we have more opportunities to be a hero than we realize. It might be a small gesture for us, but huge to someone else. Someone was my hero one day just by... Read more

What I can and cannot do
Friday, October 26, 2007      0 comments

Wow. I needed to hear this today. I am letting everything that I cannot do get in the way of living my life the last few days. Feeling depressed and diminished. Maybe it's time to blame the full moon and get on with it.... Read more
Torch Vs. Candle
Thursday, October 25, 2007      0 comments

I agree and yet I don't. Not everyone is the same and not everyone can handle being the torch. Some people are meant to be a lamp and some a candle and some people are the sun. There's nothing wrong with that, just burn as brightly as you can wi... Read more
Bad tastes good.
Wednesday, October 24, 2007      0 comments

Why is that? Why can't things that are bad for you taste bad, so then you won't want them anyway? And you'd think that I would know the answer to that at my age... IT"S NOT FAIR!!!!... Read more

Oh, I do believe this one!!! I feel better after I have had a good belly laugh, that leaves me weak and clutching my stomach because it hurts!!! My family is big on jokes and laughter, even in tragedy. It's how we survive and support each other.... Read more
