Men and Veganism

My little blog received a little face lift today.   I had a hankering for change.  Maybe the change of seasons in all it’s pumpkin spice glory inspired her little make over.  Yes, my blog is a she — obviously.   My blog is smart, pretty, charming, and spunky, so she’s definitely female. There’s no need for…

Mooooove Over Summer of 2017

  Move over Summer, bad ass Fall has rolled into town, and he means business.  Ol’ Mother Nature has bitch slapped me good.  “Wake the F*ck up Ms. SG, WTF is wrong with you.”   The cooler temperatures have eased the forest fire smoke, finally.  I’m guessing the clear air is responsible for clearing my…

Doctor, Doctor… Give me the News

  It’s Doctor Day!  For the past few months, I’ve spoke little to nothing about my anxiety. Why or why?  Because I haven’t felt anxious.  Back in April, I decided to go back on meds.  It was a really hard decision to make, but in the end, it was the right one.  It took a…

Childhood Memory

What takes me back to yesterday; but a memory from the past. Playing nicky nicky nine doors; wishing summer nights would last. Imaginary play mates; I had forgotten all about. Time travels much too quickly; for that I have no doubt. Fast forward to the present; so much in life has changed. The child I…

Short and Sweet

What I thought was nothing has turned into something very special.  I’ve discovered a man I completely misunderstood.  We parted because we couldn’t find each other, but the distance gave us time to figure it out.  The thought of losing one another was what we needed to communicate.  He isn’t at all what I had…

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…
