Back To Nowhere

Ah, about to head off to another anonymous island in Lake Nicaragua.  After Ometepe, I think I´m over the middle of nowhere now, but maybe this stop will surprise me and be stellar.  But after getting into Granada and getting to be in an … Read More

So, I saw the doctor today.  Not my regular doctor who is sick but another in his practice.  I was telling my Mom last night (appointment was yesterday but rescheduled because doctor was out) that I was kind of glad that I was seeing … Read More

Opportunities and Options

Long week. Another dentist appointment on Tuesday so I ended up burning a couple of days of vacation rather than trying to drive home from here Monday night and then back here Tuesday – just not worth it. Wednesday was a big meeting with … Read More

Eureka!

Last night I had a small and perhaps brief break-through with Leo. My formerly stray kitten is still very timid around me. Around other cats, fine, but around people, shy and scared. I’ve been doing everything I can to not do anything sudden around … Read More

Belated Condolences What a week… I haven’t had the energy to post or the ability to form a coherent sentence. Sunday was a restful day for me. I did laundry and I pulled out the can of paint that I had for my guest … Read More

I haven’t written lately. I haven’t known what to say. On top of my own all-too-natural questioning of the universe and my place in it, I’ve been dealing at a long distance with feelings over my grandmother’s deteriorating physical condition. Everytime I talk to … Read More

The blues just won’t go away… On my way home from work today, I had pretty much determined that even if I waited until Spring, I was full-steam-ahead on the leaving Atlanta idea. There hasn’t been a day in some time I haven’t thought … Read More

Largely a quiet weekend. We had a good week of rain. It’s been kind of gray and lazy but I hope the periods of rain continue. My plants need the rain! Saturday I got one of my friends to go to the comic shop … Read More
