Random Thoughts For Today

What if life only truly exists between the electrical impulses which cause one's heart to beat?

Nothing smells better than a rare rainfall in the desert. Well, maybe orange blossoms...

My body has grown so accustomed to a low carbohydrate way of eating that now if I consume any carbs other than veggies and salad, I get headaches.

I love my kids with all my heart, and they crack me up on a daily basis. They also frustrate me daily too, but you take the good with the bad.

My dog Candy is extremely affectionate when she wants something. Typical.

I have at least ten books to read, and I've started each one. Perhaps multi-threading reading materials is not the best approach.

The woman of my dreams is out there somewhere I bet -- I can just hope that she feels the same way about me.

The world is heading rapidly towards something either really great or really crappy, but the result will be interesting nonetheless.

I have eaten more nuts, berries, and vegetables in the past month than I have in the past 5 years, and I feel great. (* and my coat has never been shinier)

I think ghosts are people in other parallel universes or dimensions that we can see when the fabric of space-time between planes becomes very thin.

Everyone and everything is energy, and I think that when we die our energy merely transforms into another state of being.

I find that while my core values and principles stay the same, my preferences and ideas and perceptions change over time with experience. Growth is a wonderful thing.

Him and Her

Her: “I want someone who wants to be with me” Him: “That’s me” Her: “I want someone who needs me” Him: *raises hand* “Here” Her: “I want someone who thinks about me first thing in the morning and last thing before bedtime” Him: “Check and check” Her: “I want someone who will love my kids too” Him: “Yup” Her: “I want someone who can overlook my flaws” Him: “That’s easy” Her: “I want someone who will always make time for me” Him: “You bet. Every day” Her: "I want someone who will make me a priority" Him: "At or near the top always" Her: “I want to be married someday” Him: “Agreed” Her: “Why is it so hard to find someone like this?” Him: *bangs head on wall*

Maybe I Missed The Boat

A little over 20 years ago I was in a relationship that wasn't a great one but I settled for it anyway, because I thought perhaps it wouldn't get any better.

"Maybe this is as good as it gets?", I thought to myself.

I loved, surely -- but I wasn't entirely happy. Something was always missing, yet I stuck with it due to fear of being alone and because of a sense of duty and loyalty. Then we had kids -- the most wonderful gifts -- and despite being unhappy and unfulfilled I kept with it.

Now that relationship has been officially over for three years now and I still haven't met anyone that makes my heart skip a beat.

I've been on a grand total of three dates in that time, while she's on her, oh I don't know -- 10th boyfriend? I'm not keeping score, though, and I really don't mind.  It's her life, and her choices.  Good for her.  For me, however, it just amplifies my loneliness a bit.  It's like there is this incessant buzz of a…


I don't know what to say.  I've started this post several times now, writing at least the beginning of the opening sentence only to delete it and stare at the blank screen.  I'm actually at a loss.

I go through this writer's block once in a while, but rarely when I want to write.  It's usually when I would like to be writing but can't think of anything, so I find something else to do and just press on with life.  These days I almost feel compelled to write, but today nothing of substance is coming out and it is getting frustrating.  My writing balls are rather blue right now, if you will pardon the crude imagery.

I guess I can talk about my day yesterday.  I had a great day.  The kind of day I will remember for a while, and the memory of which will help light darker days that may come for me in the future.

I was able to help a wonderful, smart, kind, and talkative(!) little boy by just being there for him.  I won't go into the circumstances of why he may …
