About Blog Woman!!!

Once in a while I can rock a thought. I simply believe in what I stand up for. I'd most like people to know that surviving the trials of mountains and monsters is more than resilience - it’s a path to your destiny. On a mostly weekly basis I throw out a grab-bag of facts, ideas or creativity; like a box of chocolates wrapped in ribbons of occasional profanity.... In other words, it's my party I can fun if I want to. So, waddya say, can we talk?

Um Adriana, I Don’t Like You Like That

I got another email from Adriana today. At first I was annoyed at her repetitive messages. However, now as the months have gone by, I am starting to worry about her. She really doesn’t seem to be able to move forward in life.

She said she chatted with me quite a bit on Facebook before I deleted her. I can honestly say, I don’t recall any of that. Nothing, nada, zip. She does admit a little further in the letter that maybe she only chatted with me a couple of times. I wonder if this was while I was on those serious morphine drips.

She keeps saying … Continue reading

Blackbird Fly…

A few weeks ago I made a bit of a startling discovery.  Along with that, I realized I’d also entered a murderous circle, a plethora of new friends, and an opportunity to crow a little about it, if you will… … Continue reading
