A New Old Love

For many years now, I’ve kept several notebooks that I filled with what I saw as lyrics. I was never given the opportunity to learn an instrument so I never put music to my words. So as time passed the music in my head faded away from the words on the page and 6 months … Continue reading

Darkest Secret

Depression. Some people throw the word around like candy at a parade but it is nothing to be taken lightly. It can become debilitating. It’s a nasty disorder that could potentially push someone over the edge. Literally, the edge when life becomes death. Everyone handles their depression differently. Some seek professional therapy or counseling, which … Continue reading

For Better, For Worse

“I take you to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until death do us part.” Traditionally, these words, or something close to them, are said at every wedding.

Fleeting Feelings

I’ve done a few of The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenges now. I don’t do them all. I never planned to when I started. After all, this is not a photography blog and it’s just physically not realistic for me. However, I do look at them each week. I ask myself can I incorporate this … Continue reading

Photo of a One Night Stand

Sara over at the Daily Post put out the weekly photo challenge of signs this week. My mind went something like this: street signs, roads, sidewalks, pedestrians, need to walk to the mailbox. No, I thought. Focus. Signs. Sign of the times? Cliché. Signs and crossroads. Hang a sign. Here’s your sign. What’s your sign, … Continue reading
