The journey

The last 16 months has been a lot for me to work through and understand. In the process I have hurt people, but I’ve also been hurt. However, there comes a time when we have to look passed our hurts and rise above all of the things that have tried to tear us down. Walking away from an unhealthy relationship can be a culture shock for just about anyone. When you’ve been out of the game for as long as I have been, dating can be quite shocking as well. Working through getting to know one another can be a tedious process. Unfortunately, learning how to function in a healthy relationship can take time. Based on my own personal experience, it is going to take a lot longer than 16 months for me to ...

Is happiness a choice?

The simple answer to this? Yes. Every single one of us has gone through things that hurt. Some of those things impact our overall mental health. Some of those things just leave a few lacerations that eventually heal. Since my last post, I have been working diligently to overcome some of the insecurities I have. It isn’t easy. It is an excruciating process. However, I believe that a choice has to be made to be happy; to pursue it willfully. This choice isn’t always easy to make. Why? People and past hurts. All of us have demons. Some of them walk out of the closet, stand before us, and are unapologetic in their approach. Some of those demons are triggered by events during the day. Either way,...

The Hell of Insecurities

Insecurities. We all have them. The reason I’m writing this today is because it has been a hot topic among my peers lately. Sometimes writing helps me makes sense of things, so perhaps typing this out will serve that purpose. I believe that there is a tremendous difference in the way women and men handle personal insecurities. From what I’m gathering men tend to recognize insecurities, but then they promptly stick them in a box. They acknowledge the issue, but they quickly bury it and move forward. Women, on the other hand, seem to laser focus on them. We rip them apart, analyze each piece, put them all back together only to tear them apart again. We continue to focus on them until we get on...

Still Breathing


Hello all. If has been a very long time since I’ve been here, but I wanted to assure you that I’m still alive. My life has taken on so many changes, but I’m finally able to breathe. In January, I unplugged from everything spiritual. I laid my dog of 12 years to rest, and I thought I would lose my mind. I took some time to shut off the spirits so that I could grieve. It was difficult coming home without my sweet boy to greet me. My son and I struggled with his loss, and we still do. However, we have a new family member that has really helped us. Her name is Artemis Grace, and I am training her to be a therapy dog. She turned 5 months old on Saturday, and she still has a lot to learn. She is e...

The Women’s Game: It sure Ain’t Beautiful!

With the men’s game now predominated by the usual summer of musicalchairs for millionaires, have you taken in the opportunity to watch any of the UEFAWomen’s World Cup currently taking place in France? I have, and although I am in some agreement here with the sentiments of writers like Sean Ingle et al on many aspects of the ladies game, he and many of his sports writing colleagues don’t dare to touch upon the absolute dire standard of the football on display. If this is this cream of women’s football then it’s leaving quite a sour taste in the mouth. I’m all for mass participation in sport at every level, for every sex and for whatever that sport might be. But watching dozens of ponytails k...

England: 53 Years And Still Taking The Positives!

This is our latest box-to-box model, Mr Southgate! Typical. You wait a lifetime for a bit of success and then, like London buses, two semi-finals come along in less than last twelve months. Surely this gives us hope and optimism. Our ridiculously overpaid, overrated and overhyped footballers are getting ever closer to ending over fifty years of famine. It might not have come home yet but at least, it seems, the beautiful game might have made a note of our address. Now I don’t want to alarm anybody out there, particularly the brainless, drunken gobshites who masquerade as football supporters and who stink up every place the team plays in, but  I’m afraid that this is as good as it’s gonna get...

After a brilliant Easter weekend filled with plenty of sunshine and temperatures reaching 74F/24C, we’ve struggled since Tuesday to hit 60F/15C. The lower temperatures were accompanied by rain and hail but at least that seems to be behind us for the next few days. I hope–more work to do outside, with several shrubs waiting to be planted. So who was born on this date in history? Let’s find out who in the writing world was born on April 28th.

To those who are celebrating Easter, I hope you have a peaceful and joyous day! The weather’s been great this week, providing plenty of warm weather and sunshine. Perfect time to tackle the backyard, which was left to its own resources by the previous owner. Suffice to say, it became overgrown and well on the way in taking over what was a superb collection of trees, shrubs, and flowers. A bit of hard work (well perhaps a lot) and it’ll be back in shape. This week I’d like to introduce you to a new author, Jonathan Pongratz. His first publication is a novella called Reaper . Jonathan is a writer of captivating horror, urban fantasy, and  paranormal stories. When he’s not writing, he’s busy be...

Since last Sunday, we’ve only had one day with plenty of sunshine and no rain. They say April showers bring May flowers. Hopefully the snow, sleet, and hail hasn’t damaged too many of the flowers that are already blooming. Looks like we’re in for another day of overcast skies and misting rain. So who was born on this date in history? Let’s find out who in the writing world was born on April 7th. (compliments of http://www.onthisday.com/today/birthdays ): William Wordsworth, English poet laureate (The Prelude); Flora Tristan, French writer and social activist; J. P.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all the Irish! Mother Nature had another laugh yesterday, throwing rain, sleet, and snow at us. Eventually, it turned back to rain and the snow disappeared, at least at the lower elevations. This morning, when I went to get the daily paper, snow still graced the higher elevations.  So who was born on this date in history? Let’s find out who in the writing world was born on March 17th. (compliments of http://www.onthisday.com/today/birthdays ): Ebenezer Elliott, British Poet.

Here we are in another month. Seems like only yesterday we celebrated New Year’s! It’s great to have more daylight, even if the weather’s still a bit unsettled. The plants seem to think spring is on the way as more and more buds are popping out each day. Hope there’s no sudden dip in the temperature to cause them harm. The painting moved from the hallway to the living room. Things appear to be completed for now, although when the doors and windows can be left open, it’ll be time to paint the trims. So who was born on this date in history? Let’s find out who in the writing world was born on March 3rd. (compliments of http://www.onthisday.com/today/birthdays ): Edmund Waller, England, poet (Pe...
