On Friday, May 20th, during the second segment of the Diane Rehm Show*, the word 'entitlement' was used in the conversation about Strauss-Kahn, Schwarzenegger, et al - most appropriately, I think. My experience tells me that there is a sense of entitlement among certain people (not just men, not just… Read full post »
Remember the song from The Wizard of Oz about 'ding, dong, the witch is dead?'
My Dad died 9 days ago and that's what popped into my head. I'm sad that it's what got triggered but it's too true. I'm sorry for both of us.
He was not overtly… Read full post »
I just read a post that reminded me of a very important lesson I've learned through all of 'this' - to turn to gratitude when I can. Instead of praying 'please take this from me,' to say 'thank you for taking this from me.'
Because, soon as I pray 'please take… Read full post »

How long its been since I've written!
R & I had an amazing conversation this evening - well, more like an exchange.
Out of the blue, R said, "I hope 'they' live happily ever after for a very long time." Or something to that… Read full post »
I really enjoy Mark Knofler - I think his work is amazing. R and I listen to him often - he is a regular in our CD changer. A while back, he and Emmy Lou Harris did a CD called All The Road Running. One cut is Donkey Town. Here's a… Read full post »
Why, oh why, can I not post a comment?
I've read several wonderfully written, heart-felt pieces and have Rated. But cannot 'Comment.' Frustrating. Not that what I have to say is all that important, but I always appreciate the comments, that someone took the time to do so. Read full post »
Hey, Scanner - I was gonna get all clever (with a really lousy limmerick), but really just want to tell you happy birthday!
You inspire me to be a kind, thoughtful reader, to comment on what I read and be generous in my ratings.
Hope it's a great year! E… Read full post »
I just read about these people and this project. It's worthy of our attention, and I hope - somehow (even if it's not through me) - it goes viral - it's deserving.
(And I have always realized that there are much worse things in life than what happened… Read full post »
Today is my birthday, and I'm glad...
I have been thinking what I would say to G, should I ever have the opportunity. Today I 'wrote' him a letter (which I'll never mail). Here's what it said:

Dear (nope, anything but 'dear') G-----:
After considering a number of possibilities - including… Read full post »
I'd really like to be done with 'this.' And with this blog, I'm tired of thinking about it all. Being bounced around, ambushed, shaken. There seems to be so much to say and, then again, so little. I began writing to relieve myself and because I hoped that… Read full post »
TRIO - Part 1
In the evenings, R and I enjoy listening to music (we seldom watch TV). We have our favorite CD's in the changer and just let the sound fill the house or the car as we go about this and that. It's something we have… Read full post »

Thursday, as I was leaving the club, either C or G passed me in the drive. I didn't want to stare long enough to figure out which it was. R said one of them must be taking a class as they have been there rather regularly… Read full post »
Here's what I thought about today, and often do on other days:

What to say next? There's so much that, once again, I don't quite know where to start. So, I'll start here:
We've now passed the two-year mark. It's been a while since I cried over the whole thing. But my body still reacts in a very organic way when she… Read full post »
So here we have it. Fabulous open-toe Manolos. Fabulous cocktail suit with short skirt. (Less-than-fabulous legs - what's a girl to do?)
Hose or not! Cu'mon folks, you can do this without even blinking!
It's now been two years since I was told. I've survived. We've survived. Life is good - for real. And it still hurts, big time!
Awed by the writing I see here - wishing I could read each and every tantalizing piece... Awake at a time when I would normally (what is that ) be asleep (read unconscious). Wishing I could write half as well and not just - well - unload.
Had an important conversation… Read full post »

I'm writing this post as a 'comment' to an earlier posting that I cannot find. It was from a woman about, to marry, was asking about why women stop enjoying/wanting sex. She seemed, to me, to be thinking that - given just the right attitude - they… Read full post »
At first I thought of these posts as a trial manuscript, if you will, for a book I'd write about what I've been through. Hoping it might help someone get through a similar heartbreak - not that I have any magic formula, just my own experience. A book, however, requires some… Read full post »
