Living: Can We Just Talk Instead of You Insulting Me?

A month or so ago, a casual dating relationship I was in with an old friend ended abruptly. We weren’t a match for a variety of reasons which we both understood. Instead of him having the kahunas to have a conversation with me, he… Continue Reading “Living: Can We Just Talk Instead of You Insulting Me?”

Living: Learning to Be Me….In Living Color

I went on a first date for Valentine’s Day. I’ve never done that before. We set up the date around my travel schedule, and, I didn’t realize it was Valentine’s Day. When I realized it, I told him that if he wanted to do… Continue Reading “Living: Learning to Be Me….In Living Color”

Living: Chasing my Dreams….Amid the Lure of Shiny Objects

I had a dream last night about work. I dreamed that I still worked at Accredo, but I had only been there a year. Apparently, my dreams haven’t caught up with my job change. I got a call from ServiceMaster (my job before that)… Continue Reading “Living: Chasing my Dreams….Amid the Lure of Shiny Objects”

Living: Suck it Up

I set a goal to be ready for the Austin Half Marathon on February 17. I ran a couple of half marathons last year, but I was barely trained. That’s fine. I just ran them for fun, and they were really a great time.… Continue Reading “Living: Suck it Up”

Living: Walking Into Fear

I woke up in fear this morning. Right before I woke up, I had this bad dream about Momma. She didn’t die. She just disappeared. I went in a store and was shopping longer than anticipated, and when I came back to the car,… Continue Reading “Living: Walking Into Fear”

Living: Taking My Tea Green

I saw my first acupuncturist in 20005. I was trying to get in better health. In particular, I wanted to get off an anti-depressant that wasn’t working for me, and I couldn’t get off it without horrible side effects. I decided to try something… Continue Reading “Living: Taking My Tea Green”

Living: Meditation Books

Yesterday, my December 21 reading in Melody Beattie’s Language of Letting Go was about finding balance. It said that those of us (that would be me) who have been in abusive relationships, struggle with balance in the area of “what is normal”. After getting… Continue Reading “Living: Meditation Books”

Living: Embracing the Roller Coaster

I love roller coasters. The spring after my second divorce, my friend Elizabeth and I made the journey to Six Flags over St. Louis specifically to ride roller coasters. I wanted to do it for fun, but I really felt like doing something that… Continue Reading “Living: Embracing the Roller Coaster”

Living: Leaving a Legacy

What is architecture anyway? Is it the vast collection of the various buildings which have been built to please the varying tastes of the various lords of mankind? I think not. No, I know that architecture is life; or at least it is life… Continue Reading “Living: Leaving a Legacy”

Living: Snacking for Energy

I have hypoglycemia. I was diagnosed two years ago after having a very dangerous event happen to me. I had been eating chocolate with my team all day at work while we were working on a very tedious and stressful project. I came home… Continue Reading “Living: Snacking for Energy”
