• Coffee and Book

    Life is too short for bad coffee and bad books

    The past while I’ve taken myself offline for the most part. I needed to sit and think. Something that came to mind was – life is too short for bad coffee and bad books, surround yourself with things that make you happy. We’re in one of those periods where those of us who are afflicted with depression get hit hard again. Add onto that my body doesn’t work like it used to and I’ve been down in the doldrums for a while. I just haven’t had the energy to even try to do anything other than exist. It didn’t help that the new medication I’m on that allows me to…

    Looking for direction

    It seems to be this time of year. I find myself in a mental quandary. I’m looking for direction from that lump in my skull. Sadly, all it does is remind me that I had so many ideas at one point, and right now, I’m so overwhelmed that I feel like I’m frozen and spinning my wheels. You’d think that, by now, I’d have my life sorted. I have so many author friends who can write, and sometimes that is discouraging.

    Planning gone wrong

    So I have been gone for a while. It wasn’t planned. In fact it was completely planning gone wrong. I couldn’t get anything together on time for multiple reasons. I swear that time seemed to vapourize when I sat down to do something, and then there were the million things that decided they needed attention right fucking now.

I’ve been dealing with things coming up that have smacked me in the face from the past, and at this point, I really am looking at it as I’m not going…

    You Think The Shadow of Doubt

    You think the shadow of doubt Is hanging over my head It’s just an angel Whose wings hide the sun Def Leppard – All I Want Is Everything In life, there are sometimes when a song reaches out and touches you right down to your soul. That line has been in my head since I heard it as a university freshman. I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching and trying to decide if I want to keep writing or just hang everything up, chuck it in the fuck it bucket and go on with life without the burden of trying to write. Just package it away and forget that…

  • Read. Read a Book

    Right now I’ve not much to say. I just have a lot on my plate, and it’s the time of year where I get a bit older, so that makes me meh. I have rarely had a good birthday. Rare as hen’s teeth. So, I suggest you join me in reading. Read a good book. Get some escape from the nastiness of the world for just a little while.
