I have been wrestling with deep thoughts since NYE. Real thoughts, thoughts that are pushing me out of my old life and into my new one. So deep do these go that sometimes I feel the atoms of my being fluxuate. Then I have to take a pause. I can only… Read full post »
I was walking the dog today and I thought about why I resist happiness so much. We all have the same 24 hours in a day, but some of us spend them perpetually unhappy. There is always something to complain about, but really when I said to a friend the other… Read full post »
Yesterday I attended the funeral of my friend. The last one I put on my ball gown skirt for was my mother’s in 2001. My friend was kind and he never once turned me down for fixing a clogged toilet. All I had to do was say thank you with my… Read full post »
I have a question for the human race: Is it really our thoughts that drive our world or events?
Take someone who has been unlucky in lfe. Maybe they lost the parent lotto or just grew up in poverty or just grew up wealthy, but neglected. They may think I'm… Read full post »
I had the oddest thought today walking my dog in the rain.
Is this what normal feels like?
I am balanced inside, ok maybe still a bit off but better. Nothing seemed to phase me as we stomped through puddles. I didn't want to crawl into bed or find someone to… Read full post »
Tonight I was getting a bit antsy after completing my lesson plans. I paced up and down my tiny place. What is goin on? Why does my body feel on fire? My head started to get dizzy and the dog was looking at me with a concerned look.
What was… Read full post »
Last night I had an odd dream. I had spent the day resting from a long night out and was peaceful. I fell asleep and soon went to my subconscious' playground.
I was a little girl again and sitting on the floor in one of our houses, we moved quite… Read full post »
The other day I made a snap comment to a friend who recently had a baby.
She was trying to give me some comfort when I didn't need any. We used to be best friends in what seems like a million years ago. We stopped when after 13 years of being… Read full post »
If I were a character in a children’s book, I would have been called Little Miss Grudge. Forgiveness was for people who wanted to get off lightly and the suckers who were afraid to stand up for themselves. In my anger, I raged all the times at the wrongs done to… Read full post »
Last night around four o'clock in the morning a magical thing happened. No David Beckham did not crawl through my window, but close. I had fallen asleep early as it was cold here in Miami (around 50) and refuse to suffer. I loaded up on blankets and let the dog sleep… Read full post »
I had a brief text exchange with my healer today. As I go deeper into meditation, I find anxiety. Now those that have attempted meditation know that the monkey mind tries to fill up the silence with trivial matters. The dog needs walking or Jesus, is it cold in here. Whatever.… Read full post »
I started the year of in a bit of a funk. Shedding 2013 has been challenging so I thought I would write out some feelings. What I did not expect was the lovely support I have received. Some of it was so helpful and provided clarity. Many of you expressed I… Read full post »
I think many of us feel slighted in some way by our parents. It was their choice to bring us into the world, not ours. This is the primary example of how they have power over us. They smothered us or they just could not have cared less. Either way most… Read full post »
Today I had the most beautiful thought.
Let me backtrack a bit. I was thinking of having a song I love, a new one, to lift my spirits. Normally Pearl Jam's State of Love and Trust is my go to song. But it isn't some romantic ballad, it is the anthem… Read full post »
I get it. I really do. This being alone thing has me wound up something fierce. My shaman told me to release my fear of being alone. I took it to mean just let go and live my life for me. This is all great in theory and my wheels have… Read full post »
I have a friend who met her husband at 22. She married him at 33. Now we as woman tend to want to get our "one" out of the way quickly and move on with our careers. Yesterday, I thought to myself well she never was the quintessential single girl.… Read full post »
I sense the Noor’s disappointment. She and her husband were not real to me until tonight. In hindsight, I had heard whispers in the street that Noor not being the best wife and her ankles were on the medium side, but I dismissed it for jealousy. Now that I know she… Read full post »
For the first time in years, I decided to have a low-key Christmas. I went to Disney for Christmas and watched New Years on television with my sister who came down with chicken pox. My world has changed dramatically in a year. I almost lost both my sisters in January, my… Read full post »
My parents and guests are discussing the Omakis. Most Ticans will only discuss foreigners after a few drinks. Champagne emanates from the room. Father and The Diego discuss their business dealings with Omakis. I know we have to allow some outside business in, but these men a/… Read full post »
My editor feels that the tentative title for my debut novel, Mermaid, is not intriguing. So I wanted to ask my fellow OSers for their input. Please tell which title jumps out at you.
In short the story is about a girl who comes of age during a plague on… Read full post »
I have been running my ghostwriting business since I knew my position at work was going to be terminated. It has been quite the learning experience. There are some demanding people who want their pieces just so. A few Friday nights were spent just placating one client who would inevitably… Read full post »
I was unemployed for exactly one day, if you don't count Saturday and Sunday. By Monday I had a second interview and a job offer by 4 pm. It was such a relief and the new school will give me more freedom to teach. All levels of middle school Literature… Read full post »
