I Once Was Lost

Hello. It’s been a while. I haven’t wanted to write very often and when I did, I couldn’t. This has probably been the worst I’ve ever been. It hasn’t all been bad, of course.  It’s honestly been a roller coaster ride.  Bad and good.  Highs and lows. Fun times and disasters (literally).  We’ve had hurricanes,…

New Habits

I guess I was overly optimistic about keeping up with writing here.  It seems that so much is going on that I’m having trouble keeping up with everything. The moderate depression is continuing with some good days and some not-so-good.  I just keep putting one foot in front of the other and continuing with the…

I am writing today because writing is a good thing for me to do…not because I can think of anything that really needs to be said. That parallels my day today also.  I am doing what needs to be done although none of it seems to be particularly important or relevant. I washed clothes so that…

Back Roads

Hello. Once again, so much time has passed.  The thought of trying to chronicle the events of the past days is overwhelming and so, I don’t believe I’ll try. I shall start writing and we will let the important stuff reveal itself…in it’s own time. I do know for certain that the past days have…
