Senses Overmuch

A Quest for Restfulness: I may have trust issues. I definitely have sensory overload. The ground was hot and rolled under my feet. My face burned. My toes curled. Who put on a gallon of hairspray today, smoked a pack and drank a 24? Who forgot to shower, change a diaper and evict the toe jam? Pull up your... Continue Reading →


Saturday’s blurb

Today has been good. I slept in (!!!), read, remembered to eat, forgot to worry, and smiled at the sun. I played some cello-- I have to say I don't have much, but what I have, I love. My desk chair doubles as a cello-chair, which works perfectly, and believe me when I say that's... Continue Reading →

Trying not to…

I'm trying not to let anxiety get the better of me, which it has for the past week-ish. I'm trying not to worry, and just write instead.

I've come to the conclusion that people will always, for the foreseeable future, ask what it is I am doing or am planning to do... Continue Reading →


I feel terrible; I'm just completely out of gas. I don't want to eat any food, talk to anyone, listen to any sound or do anything. What I do want is to go to sleep in dark, soundproof room and wake up to breakfast in bed, but the chances of that happening are pretty slim. I'm dizzy... Continue Reading →

Grand schemes and slimy sidewalks

I'm off kilter lately, feeling breathless and whether that's from being terrified or in another heightened state, I honestly have no idea -- things change so fast! My mind is going a million miles and hour. This was my day: Apple porridge while looking at the rain coming in sheets down from the sky. Brisk... Continue Reading →


Good day at work today. Some laughs, some teaching ops, some brownies, rain and sun and a needed tidying and tying of loose ends. Three quarters back to where I have my space the way I want it, taking a needed break from the housework that is ongoing. I hurt, and my crutches are crunchy... Continue Reading →
