About

Kind of a hippy at heart.  I try to forgive and accept rather than criticize and judge.  I once shaved my head for cancer. I have two stories published in two different Chicken Soup for the Soul books.  I rescue cats. I carried the Olympic Torch in 1988 for 1 km through Bowser. I love summertime. I love all animals, even the icky ones that I won’t touch

I love music and my “Theme Song of The Day” category is used to reflect how I am feeling about my life at the time of posting, sometimes I recycle songs because they’re just so fitting, the lyrics speak to me, soothing – it makes me feel less alone knowing that there are other people out there who feel as I do.

I began my “Ghosts of Boyfriends Past” category to help ease the pain of heartbreak when the love of my life, The Jester, left me.  It helps my grieving process to try and remember all the good times I’ve shared and to re-experience the deep or light involvements I’ve had with each man I’ve dated or flirted with.  I have been toying with the idea of compiling these entries along with unpublished writings into a book, perhaps one day.

The “Year End Re-cap” category is just that – a condensed summary of each year & what I’ve learned from the events that occurred.

In recent years, sadly, I felt the need to add the category of “In Loving Memory”.  I dearly wish this wasn’t necessary.

This is my virtual home, where I come to contemplate the direction of my life, the world, my interactions with others or just be silly and laugh. I find writing to be very therapeutic, being able to share it with others and hear their views on what I write is a huge bonus.

    This is a very beautiful blog. 🙂
    And the ‘Ghosts of Boyfriend’s past’ is such a grand idea!
    I think every girl could do with keeping such a book.
