River Stones 1/31/2011

How sad to reach the end of a project that has helped me be more aware of what I write and do some needed introspection.

Reflection can be a good thing when inspiration joins the fray and prompts new vision.

River Stones 1/29/2011

Every day I wonder where I really belong in this world and my heart aches with a pain that never goes away.

There's nothing like ending a day with a feeling of accomplishment and a modicum of organization.

I watched the State of the Union address last night. Obama sounded positive and presidential. So why did I feel like I was sold down the river?

Tangled yarn is easier to fix than a tangled life. Maybe that's why I'd rather stay home and needlepoint.

When lists start getting short, it's time to make more lists. It's one of those things that never ends . . .

Robert Burns wrote: "The best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley."

That pretty much describes my weekend. Hopefully Sunday will bring something nice.

Snow, unexpected visitors, and assorted distractions have an annoying way of interrupting one's plans.

In a rare dispay of optimism, I have great hopes for an interesting and productive weekend. I've been hiding from life too long.

Surprises and knotty decisions are like dandelions in Spring -- you never when where or when they're going to pop up.

Can one ever be truly caught up on household chores? I think they breed while I'm sleeping.

How precious it is to end the day and feel that it was productive and a blessing rather than a burden.

Energy is returning. I might even do a little 'carpe diem' today . . . unless it snows.

Making the right phone call can be a catharsis; it doesn't fix everything -- or even anything -- but it can ease an overwrought mind if only temporarily.

River Stones 1/14/2022

It's one of those days where I have no idea why I bothered to get out of bed. It's too difficult on so many levels and I have no idea of how to fix any of it. I don't think I'm depressed -- just tired of struggling.

Winter weather advisory keeping me housebound. And discovering that my town ranks #9 on MSN Real Estate's Top 10 Most Miserable Cities in the country -- but I already knew that -- doesn't help.

Information overload is toxic; media circuses are ugly; neither accomplishes anything. Pogo was right. And anything I say is not valid.

River Stones 1/11/2011

My poor damaged brain is on overload -- so much information it's hard to sift through the bul . . . er, ah . . . rhetoric from both sides. It's all evil.

Blame and denial by certain factions, entities and individuals will not solve the travesty that's occurred in our country. Am I angry? Damned right!

River Stones 1/9/2011

As I think of what happened yesterday in Arizona, I can't help but think that -- as I always have -- that the Reckless Right has gone too far. Prayers for all who were killed or injured just doesn't seem sufficient and ring hollow in the insanity of it all.

Every time I think that I'm making some progress in getting things organized, I find something else I need to organize.

Happy Blogging!!!!!

There's nothing like an Alberta Clipper blowing about nine inches of snow through Ohio to remind us that it's winter. Yikes!

I finally picked up my new prescription at the pharmacy. I don't take anything that comes with two pages addressing the possibility of suicide. I'm only crazy -- not stupid.

Happy Blogging!

Getting a panic attack when there is no apparent reason for one is both disconcerting and annoying. It tells me that there is something very wrong but I can't begin to fathom what it is . . . so far. Maybe I've just been worrying too much or thinking too much.

Happy Blogging!!!!!

Re-adjusting one's dysfunctional sleep patterns can be an seemingly endless exercise in frustration. I feel like Sisyphus and the rock.

Starting my very own personal, life-changing revolution isn't as easy as it sounded two days ago, nor does coming up with a scintillating 'stone' each day and the list of such endeavors goes on and on . . .

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!

I think it's really rather strange that I only have pork and sauerkraut for supper once a year because I really enjoy it. Maybe someone long ago told me told me that it's only to be eaten then. I've decided that will change: it fits my criteria in the kitchen these days perfectly: easy, quick, cheap, re-heatable.

Happy Blogging!!!!!

River Stones 1/1/2011

When I read Lia's blog, Yum Yum Cafe, this morning I realized that contemplating New Year's resolutions was not what I needed. The better approach is a New Year's revolution. After an tumultuous 2010 on several levels, it's time to seriously consider some major changes and muster the courage I know I have stashed somewhere in the clutter in my poor damaged brain and move forward.

Happy Blogging!!!
