It is not what it seems… maybe


I wrote an email, somewhat scathing in tone, a few days ago. Entirely justified at the time, I thought. I felt I was being unduly taken advantage of, that the prospective recipient of the email was intentionally obstructive and perhaps malicious, at best unthinking and uncaring. Well, I had to defend myself, don’t I? I am entitled, don’t I? And anyone who knew the circumstances would see this and I would be justified in my action.

But no one saw this email. I did not send it.

My tapping away at the keyboard was cathartic, but catharsis could only go so far in making the situation “right”.

Thankfully, one of my habits is to never send an email drafted during an emotional flux.

Taking a large step back from the finished (but then unsent) email, these were what I realised:

  • Obviously, I was emotional. Of its own, perfectly acceptable and…

Medications and A Weekly Reader.

Have you noticed I don’t post much? If you’ve been around long enough you will know that at one time I would post as much as three times a day seven days a week. I was a fend. Then medications happened. With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue they give you all sorts of pills to try and help with pain and the side effects pain can cause, like depression. Let me tell you, all that does is curb your enthusiasm for pretty much anything creative. They are still working on the right combination for me.

I wanted to thank all of you who still visit me even though I am MIA so much. I also wanted to say that in the near feature I will begin a book for my blog. Each week will be a new chapter or scene. I’m not real sure how it will be done, but I do have the book idea in  mind. I am hoping this will force me into a creative mood again. I have the ideas, just no energy to do them. But if I start it I will feel obligated to keep doing it, much like my Haiku Challenge which is approaching three years of uninterrupted weekly challenges.

I hope you will enjoy what I have to offer and maybe this will do me some good. Looking forward to some creative juices flowing.

Much Respect


Hotter than fire.

Across the waters

Desire flames hotter than fire

When I kiss your lips.


A little somethin’ for my challenge this week.

Junked up.

Cast upon the shore

Like a rusty old coke can

My car looks like junk.


A funny one this week, sort of.
