It’s bad, I almost forgot about this writing and a friend reminded me.  Thank you Kenny. So I visited and read. Reread. A reminder that when getting out of bed is a challenge, that there is a shot of transparency near by that will either rip the covers back or whisper in your ear, it … Continue reading

Superman_______July 6, 2012

Wanted to share an answer from a TED question about Hero’s. Conversation: We can all be heros! We share many of the same insecurities and fears, so why do some people take action while others continue to look away? Jan 8 2012: Great question. The “hero” is Superman and it is my grandmother. When I was … Continue reading

Perfect__________June 18, 2012

There is a conscious tapping that reminds me of how far we have to go. There are some that say that hiding ones head in the sand can be easier than facing the giants. Eventually one must peek and there standing on the edge of the hole is a giant fist waiting……patiently to sock you … Continue reading

When we remember_______May 27, 2012

My father showed me the letter he wrote to his commanding officer asking to be deployed to the Gulf War. He did not get to go. Every time I saw my dad, it was a parade of remembering. His ability to spend a lot of time with anyone was limited.  It did not matter how … Continue reading

A mighty wind______April 20, 2012

There is a conversation on TED.com that I have started with many questions surrounding suicide and the taking of ones own life. You are welcome to participate.

By all means it would have been nice to have everything at my disposal to move out to a nice apt by the lake and gut the building completely….to the brick and start fresh. Believe me, there is not one thing I would change…..not … Continue reading

In between the waves______April 7, 2012

When one  is always….on, you are in constant hum. Some days, moments, weeks it can be really loud. Move mountains, dig deeper and even when done with love….you lose valuable plasma. Many keep on this path for a very long time. Losing iron, vital sources of brain juice and always seeing the bottom of the … Continue reading

going with it__________March 27, 2012

The cells are humming. They are changing…slowly, with care and love. It’s the next plane. The next level, a little bit more knowledge. It seems to be okay when things are heavy. I love that saying, “he’s not heavy, he’s my brother”. Heavy is okay. Heavy is hard and your muscles shake and you sometimes … Continue reading

if there ever was______March 22, 2012

The house is coming along. We were without internet for a couple of weeks and it actually helped my focus on getting organized, painting, cleaning, sorting…….more cleaning, painting and tomorrow, don’t laugh I will attempt to hang wallpaper. My answer for most things is to watch a YouTube video on it. Thank God for a … Continue reading

I love you

This is in response to those hundreds that have read an ‘Open Letter to those that choose that moment’. There is a part of me that is slightly shocked at how many……daily read this open letter and secretly very happy. After my father decided June 22nd, 1995 to end his pain in this world and … Continue reading
