Rainbows

On the way home today, there was a storm with driving rain and on the other side of the road was sunshine- two opposing forcing that were battling to exist.Both had hidden secrets of something that is not good- the sun can scorch and burn. The driving rain and storm forces can destroy and flood.

No Do Overs…

One evening Leo and I were celebrating our Anniversary at a Restaurant in another city. At the end of our meal, we decided to order a piece of chocolate cake to share. We were both too full to eat our own piece of dessert. The cake came to the table with two forks and we each took a bite. It was the most delicious piece of cake I had ever tasted. It didn’t come to the table half frozen like…

Wedding Reception- On the Edge of Longing

Wedding Reception- On the Edge of Longing

On the edge of longing… I found myself on the edge again. The edge of the crowd, the edge of the dance floor, the edge of the conversation. I saw people, acquaintances, family and old friends- some of us had been separated by distance, by hurt, morals and ideals.

Bruce Trail Adventure Phase 2 Day 9

August 2 Rattlesnake Point to Kelso Conservation 11 km I have been there, maybe you know that place too. The lake that you walk into and it feels like it is gradual and gently sloped sand leading into the water and it seems lovely and I await the cool feel of the water.  Then comes the step – the shocking one that I do not anticipate as I wade in.

Alone in the crowd.

Alone in the crowd.

Tonight Leo and I went out for supper and then to see the play “The Adams Family” I went because Leo asked me too, because we both knew people in the play and because Leo and Michael were involved with set building. This is my least favourite play, TV Show and story of all time. I do not think there is one I dislike more… it is popular, famous and overdone in local schools and communities.

People are like that too.

I opened up my computer this morning and saw a beautiful picture of Denmark all lit up at night. It was a stunning picture as many photos are. I thought about the beauty on the surface and it occurred to me that some of the houses may have tragedy, sadness, hardship, delight or joy living inside but, I would never know. People are like that too, at first glance we may see a well put together person who is adept…

Going Deep

Going Deep

I sent some pieces of writing for Olivia to read. She sends me back a message “got them”. Nothing else after that- so I pry a little and send a message that says well?

We are all the same

We are all the same

I sat in a women’s group that focused on recovery. Recovery from anything really… addictions, abuse, bad relationships, shopping, eating, cleaning and the list goes on. The list is long with things we hide behind, things we have convinced ourselves are necessary to fill a void, things that make us feel better, prettier, smarter, worth more, valued… and sometimes the list isn’t so nice, it is not to make us feel better but rather, to make us feel like we…

The Last Christmas Decoration

The Last Christmas Decoration

It is Sunday morning- Palm Sunday to be exact.  Easter is next weekend and I love Easter more than any other time of year. I slept in today an hour past my usual wake up time during the work week and made my way to the kitchen to take my medication, eat something but more importantly for me… take that first sip of Diet Coke. I do not drink coffee, tea or juice. I can’t drink milk- nothing says good…

Dear ADHD

Dear ADHD

Dear ADHD, My editor says I should blog about you. I don’t think you deserve one so I am writing you a letter of dismissal. You are fired! I have had it with your impulsive behaviour which gets me in trouble on a daily basis. I have reviewed with you several times how disconnected your thoughts are and how you force me- by taking my brain hostage to forget what I am doing, where I am going and …. there…
