Spending Time Alone

For most of my life, I hated being alone.  I hated the fear of what was going to return, I hated the fear of not having done enough, or done something wrong.  The uncomfortability of being part of a dysfunctional home was preferable to the fear of not knowing.  Plus, having someone else in the … Continue reading Spending Time Alone

The Behavior Of…

Today, I need to talk about the behavior of our government officials, our politicians, those whom "we have entrusted" (the truth of that is a subject for another post) to positions of power.  This is an issue that is in every government, every nation, large or small.  It can come from local elected officials to … Continue reading The Behavior Of…

Drama, Drama Everywhere…

and not a bite of news on which to think. The last several days, as I usually do, I've been watching the headlines in the "news", and I keep wondering, "Where is it?  Where is my news?".  I keep watching the headlines, and nothing that I see in the news matches what I see and … Continue reading Drama, Drama Everywhere…

Much has happened in the last few weeks.  Since I've starting listening to music again, everything has opened up and my creative passion has come … Continue reading New Life Progressing

Living Up to Expectations

For most of my life I tried to live up to other people's expectations:  family, friends, teachers, etc. Most of the expectations I was expected to live up to were also directly conflictory with other things I was being told.  For example, "you can be anything you want to be, but you can't do ... ".  … Continue reading Living Up to Expectations

The Power Of…

When I was a child, I used to tell my mother, "When I grow up, I am going to have...)", and I would list off all of the things I wanted for my life.  In true fashion for her, my mother would find ways to denigrate every thing I said, and tell me why I … Continue reading The Power Of…
