. Check Engine Light .

Turning 40 has been interesting and surreal. At 40, you’re in this strange place where your mind believes you’re still in your late 20 – early 30, but your body says, “Um… nope.” But it’s not a sudden denial of fantasy.

. Drops of Jupiter .

  Life is way too short to waste… Make every moment count. This is so easily read,  just as easily as it is to type.

So, Easter came and went. I spent it with my mother watching a few movies. No Easter dinner, no treats, just a quiet evening with mom. I am so okay with that, no complaints here. I did notice, however, that a lot of friends posted a lot of family pictures; usually husbands or wives with kids… Continue reading .

It has not been that simple. I am sure it would have been more simple if I hadn’t side tracked myself into believing I was ready… Continue reading Put it in your dream journal, you freaking hippie.
