What is the matter with my eyes gushing with salty
tears as I look at my children's pictures pasted in
Why do these fourteen albums of the smiling past bring sadness to my heart?
I thought these photo- captured moments were supposed to make me h… Read full post »
To be seventeen again....a young girl/woman graduating from high school and looking forward to college. I remember clearly possessing mixed feelings about graduating and leaving that stage in my life. On one hand I was sad....sad to leave four years of my life that I knew and was comfortable wi… Read full post »
Every once in awhile it hits me how insignificant I
This is no clattery call for sympathy, just the truth within me,
born from the ease at which a close friend
can speak his love but then vanish without explanation or reason.
It takes only words of disagreement or expressi… Read full post »
Loving, the way my heart
desires and dreams, will drown you in
sultry strokes and affection, you my delight and I yours.
Our heads spinning as two bodies toss and turn intertwined and tangled
with legs, toes, tongues,… Read full post »
I've never met her....seen a picture of her....or even corresponded with her personally.....and yet, her death troubles me.
One of our beloved OpenSalon writers died this past week and I can't seem to let it go. It's not that Safe_Bet is haunting me, but her death is. Why, I ask myself… Read full post »
After reading Brain B's list on his latest post, I decided to make my list (naughty and nice). Actually, a list can't be naughty if it's a need, right? I found his needs to be thought provoking especially his #6. It got me thinking....and that's not always good for me. I… Read full post »
While it's out that marytkelly succumbed to botox injections and Mamoore confessed to applying a lip plumper, I will sheepishly confess my own physical enhancement. I now have something that never existed on my body before....cleavag… Read full post »

It never fails. I go to a movie with unusually high expectations because of all the praise....and then leave feeling slightly disappointed. I wish I could just purchase my tickets, find a good seat, and start munching on the decadent buttery popcorn without any exaggerated expectations of what is goi… Read full post »
I had mentioned in yesterday's post that I would be reposting four of my posts. Today is my second repost. I'm not reposting any Editor Picks because those were read more heavily. I'm choosing other posts that I really liked that didn't get the same exposure. Hopefully, these reposts will get… Read full post »
Lately I haven't been inspired to post even though thoughts and ideas are floating around in my head....and yet, I want to write. So I thought I would repost a few of my favorites in case you missed them. I realized that my favorites are usually centered around serious topics or… Read full post »
Although we celebrate Thanksgiving once a year, I celebrate it multiple times, if not daily, in my heart. There is so much to be grateful for.....so much to celebrate every day in my life.
I don't want you to think I'm a "holy roller" or some saint....because I'm not. I've sinned… Read full post »
Although Summer is the carefree and fun season, I love Fall's beauty and comfortable temperatures. It's hard to beat the the midwest when it comes to Fall. Below are some pictures I took....trying to capture the mystery and beauty of it all.....

Has anyone heard from TheObsoleteMan? To tell you the truth, I am concerned about him. He hasn't written anything for awhile and I've sent him a couple of pm's and he hasn't returned them. That is not like him. If anyone knows anything about him....please let me know. I'm worried and… Read full post »
I don't like the stage I'm going through right now. As a
matter of fact, I hate it. I'm sure it has a lot to do with being
50 and trying to juggle all that's going on in my

"If you were in a room with Hitler, Mussolini, and a Liberal and had a gun with two bullets, what do you do?.......Shoot the Liberal twice. Hahaha"
I'm beginning to realize that I need to delete the Facebook friends who make stupid Republican comments or jokes, in this example. The above… Read full post »
