A Sad Face

Normally, I have no problem finding something to muse and write about, but only if I think my readers would find it interesting.  And although my life is far from being boring or uneventful – I have not felt much like writing. But yesterday, I did something I have never done before in my life. And… Continue reading A Sad Face

Want, Wanted, and Wanting

There are three wants in life: want wanted and wanting.  But you already knew that – so let me explain why I am writing a post about them. Want When you need something – it is a want.  It does not matter what it costs, and it does not matter if you can afford to buy it… Continue reading Want, Wanted, and Wanting

Four Versions

I have always loved music. I like most genres, except for opera – which I don’t understand.  Obviously, the artists are exceptionally talented, but I don’t enjoy that type of music. And learning the words to my favorite songs is something that I’ve always done, ever since first listening to music on a $6 transistor… Continue reading Four Versions

Yesterday

I awoke up at 3:00 am yesterday and was as excited as a kid in a candy store with empty pockets and no money! But I could not understand why I felt so down. I usually am up between 3:45 and 4:30 am – which may seem too early for most – but I go… Continue reading Yesterday

Soul Medicine

This morning, I got an email from my buddy Robert.  It contained an animal video that absolutely surprised and delighted me. At first, I thought about sharing the video with my friends by email or social media.  But I wanted to share the video with a larger audience:  with you, my readers. After I viewed… Continue reading Soul Medicine

A Last Goodbye

In February 2018, I wrote my Chasing a Dream story. In the story, I announced that I was separated from my wife Annette, after over forty years of being together. I do not like writing about very personal issues, especially because Annette is a very private person. However, we decided to stay in the home… Continue reading A Last Goodbye

Needles and Pins

You would think that after eleven years, I would not be nervous about seeing the doctor, but I guess it’s just my mind fighting with my heart and leaving my body feeling like being pricked by ‘pins and needles.’ But that’s not until this afternoon at 2:00. Until then, I plan to go for a… Continue reading Needles and Pins

A Long Sentence

This was the first year that I did not go to the police station to get my fingerprints taken, as I do each year, to confirm that I do not have a criminal record and that allows me, as Santa Claus, to show parents and others responsible for children’s welfare, that their charges are safe… Continue reading A Long Sentence

Saturday on the Sunshine Coast

About three weeks ago, Sannie and I planned a day trip to the Sunshine Coast and had a reservation for the 7:30 am ferry to Langdale.  We needed to be at the ferry terminal at Horseshoe Bay by 7:00 am, so I was at her place at 5:30 yesterday morning to pick her up. I… Continue reading Saturday on the Sunshine Coast

A POETS Kind of Day

POETS (Piss On Everything Tomorrow’s Saturday).  It was early Friday morning when her wet lick on my lips woke me. My dog Holly Golightly is almost deaf, and she’s slowing down.  I didn’t feel much like getting up, but it’s either Holly or Mother Nature waking me at 4:00 am each morning, so I grumbled… Continue reading A POETS Kind of Day
