So, for those who do not follow me on social media, my cat - the boy whose life I saved and the boy who has saved mine more times than I could ever attempt to count; the one who has been the one in the "it's just you and me, babe!" for 12 years - … Continue reading How do you make impossible decisions?
"FreedomThe very time I thought I was lost, my dungeon shook and my chains fell off.Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty." what beautiful words. Many of you might not know that I have fought for the status of #juneteenth as a Federal holiday for about a decade now. What upset me the … Continue reading Juneteenth
I have a question for my fellow writers; to phrase it as succinctly as I can, how do you keep writing when your world is falling apart around you? I would love to hear your comments, so please leave them below, but this is a particularly challenging situation for me because, as I have said … Continue reading a question regarding writing
I know I have been talking a lot about "friendship" in the last few posts ... as well as in several posts that I wrote quite some time ago. I can appreciate that there are many people (well, maybe not, but that has nothing to do with this!) but that the many people have different … Continue reading A Thought about the “meaning of friendship”
This is something I often forget myself. It became apparent when I started sending messages to my Facebook "friends" going down by alphabetical order (I am only at "G" with a few exceptions). Sometimes you forget that some of the best friends you have ever had are actually still there for you. And ... aside … Continue reading thankful tuesday
I honestly don't know how even to start to approach this one. I know I have hinted at it in many of my recent previous posts, but I'm having a REALLY hard time.

So I know I have missed quite a long period of my life in blog posts; with any luck, just by the way I talk, I will eventually cover all the "missed" things. One of these things was adopting a baby brother for Sparky Puck, given his very severe illness and now cancer diagnosis. This … Continue reading JuJu BEE!
I'm going to try to make this one as short as I possibly can, but suffice it to say over the last few days since my mom hasn't been working my father has been sitting around also not working. And so, since I am here, I have had literally NO alone time. Now, since I … Continue reading Why is asking for alone time such an awful thing? and as a secondary question, why are so many people so needy that they don’t need that?
I AM VERY ANGRY. I was bullied TERRIBLY all my childhood ... and I have been betrayed by everyone who claimed they would never abandon me when I first became SO deathly ill in my early 20's. Long-term relationships (we're talking 5+ years), every friend I had managed to keep from the aforementioned bullies who … Continue reading feelings.
If I have not made this obvious enough, I will state it very clearly and succinctly here -if Sparky Puck were not here, I wouldn't be either.And so I ask ... why is it that the MANY people I have helped not even just recently by doing things like giving my personal doctor's information or … Continue reading Fundraising to help save sparky puck
