What Tired Looks Like

Dear Brain: It has come to my attention that you once again called in sick.  This has become an increasingly frequent occurance, and we need to talk about it.  First, I want to state that I know your role is demanding, and I can understand you wanting some time off.  However, when you do not…

A Treasured Gift

One must be kind to a gentle heart; For it feels more than it’s counterpart. Nothing compares to it’s undying love; The sweetest kiss; pure as a dove. So please beware and understand; It can shatter when placed in careless hands. And if the broken heart never mends; The love it shared comes to an…

Good-Bye Is Never Easy

Letting go has always been hard for me.  I usually know for some time that it’s time to move on, yet I hold on waiting to see if I’m wrong.  I don’t know why I haven’t learned to listen to my gutt.  It’s always the same; in the end, I wonder why I didn’t do…

Rambling On

What’s better than listening to “The Authority Song” by Mr. Mellencamp at the tail end of your work week?  NOTHING.  Foot tapping, head bopping, and fingers racing across the keyboard to the beat of the music.  Oh how I love me a Friday afternoon.  Especially when I’ve got after work drinks planned with my favorite…

Once Upon A Time, So Very Long Ago

About this time ever year, I get a little sentimental and reflective.  August 22, would have marked my 19th wedding anniversary, if I had remained married.  I was married in 1998, and divorced August 20th, 2008.  Two days shy of 10 years.  Divorce doesn’t happen the minute you separate from someone in Canada.  We have…

On a Love Train – Destination Unknown

  Tomorrow marks the one month meeting of the new man in my life.  I’ve yet to talk about him; mainly because I’m not sure where I’m at or how I feel about him.   This has been an unusual year for me love wise.  Not that I’ve found love, but I was getting pretty…

When Life is All Good

  How do you write when life is all good? No pain to inspire; the hearts as it should. How does art flow when nothing is wrong? When tears are dried up; hurts are long gone. Why is misery my creative tool? When happiness just makes me act like a fool. Will words of deep…

Green Eyes Crying in The Smoke

High Hoe High Hoe — back to work I go.  Well actually I returned yesterday, but as expected, my first day back was crazy.  A weeks worth of disgruntled employees lined the hallways waiting to tell me their woes.  I so badly wanted to reply “wtf are you whining about?  I just spent my vacation…

 Hazy night in The City 

It’s day number three of my greatly needed staycation.  I’m feeling pretty great, but I can’t say the same for our air quality.  I live in the interior of British Columbia, Canada.  If you don’t live near, you may not know that BC is on fire 🔥– literally.  My city is safe, but the winds…

Staycation, Documentaries, and Veggies

Hello and welcome to the first day of my new blog posts.  I could have easily started a new blog, but as the name says, I’m on the road less travelled.  Beside, there are many new roads on my journey of life.  My last post My Life Transformed was a tribute to where I’ve been; today, I’m…

My Life Transformed

Sadly, I have neglected my blog over the past couple of months with only random posts from time to time.  I started this blog over a year ago, and since that time, I’ve created some positive change in my life.  Slowly, I’ve crawled my way out of a very stagnant time in my life, and…

What a World We Live In — Junkified

There is nothing better than receiving an unasked for Dick PIC on a beautiful Friday morning.  Seriously, what has this world come to.  You can’t even have a drink with a man without him assuming that’s code for “please send me a picture of your flaccid penis.” Maybe I’m getting old, but is this really…
