There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Without ever having you…
I have lost you.
Without ever knowing you…
I know you…
There is no history…
Only a memory
that never occurred at all.
A memory…
I can never forget.
~ Portia Nelson, There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk: The Romance of Self-Discovery

Slimy and Pathetic

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

“Sometimes this human stuff is slimy and pathetic–jealousy especially so–but better to feel it and talk about it and walk through it than to spend a lifetime being silently poisoned.”
~ Anne Lamott

5 Calls

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Two weeks ago I downloaded the free app 5 Calls (just like Michael Moore told me to :). I’ve called senators Toomey and Casey every day since. This app makes it insanely easy! The app gives you a script (you choose the issues important to you) and dials the number. If the line is busy, the app provides alternate office numbers for your senators. My fellow citizens, please consider this. Now is not the time for complacency!

The Bride Wore Red

Friday, March 10th, 2017

I was watching a documentary about Joan Crawford the other day and a short clip was played from the 1937 movie The Bride Wore Red. The clip was of Joan delivering the following (unrequited love related) line in a feisty, over-the-top manner. I found it worth sharing. I’m sure the line doesn’t work as well without the performance. Still, it’s quite the spell to cast on your unrequited one…

“I want you to marry her, and I want my love to haunt you…to make you lie awake at night, to burn your heart, to make you sick with pain! I want you to think of me and to ache for me. I want never to see you again!”

40 days and 40 nights

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Greetings ~ I’m giving up FB and Twitter for Lent. They’ve become too anxiety inducing for me lately. That being said, it’ll still be a challenge because I am endlessly curious as what others think of the latest news. I will remain active on Instagram. I’m fairly new to Instagram and find it to be tranquil so far. Everyone have a good 40 days and 40 nights!
