relationships

did we stand in our own way?

February 2, 2010

I went to my ex-husband’s house tonight to retrieve a garment that I need on Saturday. He wasn’t home; he has been quite generous with coordinating our schedules so that I could be there alone (which is hard enough) and not have to interact with him in person. Anyway. I needed my catsuit to wear [...]

the end.

January 21, 2010

The divorce was finalized just about 48 hours ago, and the grief is rolling in. I do not know really, why the marriage ended. The man who was my husband (I am not prepared to use the prefix, “ex”) might be flabbergasted to hear me say that–that I don’t know really why he had to [...]

December 29, 2009

I have certainly sung the woe-is-me tune, wondering how my husband could be off seeking other women so soon after leaving me, and how could he be reunited within weeks with his former sweetheart.

Blue, as the heart grows cold

December 13, 2009

Have you ever wondered about the real origins of snow angels? You know, that laying on the snow and flapping your arms into wings, leaving an impression of an angel? My cousin, Shanti Perez, award-winning author, blogger, and Etsy shopkeeper, wrote this piece. It might just explain how snow angels first came to earth. ∞ [...]
