Tonight something prompted me to think about my ex-husband and our marriage, and after a moment I thought, “I am glad we are not together.” This is the first time I can remember when I’ve had that thought in such a clear and unbidden fashion. I mean, I have rationalized that I am better off [...]

The Afterward Project

February 23, 2011

Here we have the beginnings of a new project of mine. The first iteration of the Afterward Project is currently shipping to a conscripted beta tester; I can’t reveal too much about it until her test begins. However, I can tell you that the core of the Project begins with these tags that I am [...]

Fading with Time

October 28, 2010

It has been more than a year since the demise of my marriage; I am baffled by the strong feelings that remain with me still, after so much time has passed. I still carry a deep sadness, and I wear a thick mantle to shelter my heart. It’s true that with the passage of time [...]

The Streamline Adventure – Day One

July 29, 2010

And so it starts. Accidentally, almost. I was contemplating buying this 24-foot aluminum darling, a 1958 Streamline. The interior had been painted several times, and in some sections all the layers of paint had loosened–including the original paint, and so I stood inside the Streamline, peeling paint off and revealing the shiny, virgin aluminum beneath.

By a Thread

June 30, 2010

I’ve just lived the worst two or three months of my life. I believe I am on a good track of improvement, but some days still I’m not so sure. It wasn’t the flu, although it felt quite like it. Intense, immense body ache, foggy brain, and constant need for a nap. Soooo tired. Of [...]

21st century, rules change, rules stay the same

April 14, 2010

A few things to cover today. Succinctly, sex, sex, sex. ∞ First up, dating and sex and the infernal question, “Who Pays?”. As in, we are on a first date, who pays? And the question is answered with humour and insight by Single Ape. I especially like how he says When you ask someone out, [...]

Under a Big Top?

April 12, 2010

I mean, I could live anywhere, right? Why the hell not live in a circus tent?!? At least that’s the notion that crept up on me today. Another day of Mondo Beyondo dreaming sprinkled with a dose of Empire Building. And up pops the realization that a home (my home) can take any of many [...]

Imagine There Had Been a Different Ending

April 2, 2010

At lunch yesterday my dear friend, Elizabeth, kicked me. She picked up my boulders and shined light on the crawly things beneath them. She held my hand kindly, and used it to slap my face. I treasure a good examination. I am grateful for friends who will say their piece, even if it makes me [...]
