Long Walks on the Beach

   My life consists of brilliant moments of peace and contentment, followed by crazy activity that wipes the mind of the ability to think much less write. It has been the case for as long as I can remember–my memory tends to be a touch off these days. šŸ˜‰   My niece is getting married in…

Heartbroken ….

  Sigh…. Even when you know something … it hurts when the news finally comes.  Such is life.  There are ups and there are downs.  One must learn to savor the moments of joy … the moments of beauty … for there are always going to be the moments filled with sorrow and pain. Autisim isn’t…

Feelin’ Good

       Nothing like getting up and getting out there early to make you feel on top of your game. It is a super mood lifter. I went out for a ride this AM … if I don’t hit the road before 7 am I am seriously dying from the heat. I woke straight up…

Good Morning … or is it?

I’m trying to live this quote right now. I feel like the past year has been one mistake after another. I have failed so much that it is almost overwhelming. I am so far back up in weight I cannot even pretend to be happy about my life. The weight gain wasn’t for lack of…
