A Suddenly Quiet Extrovert

But like, it’s a pandemic, not a fun little experiment in telework. Therefore, I am reminded that I must cut myself some slack. The news and reality of what is happening in the world weighs on my soul, just like I’m sure it does for everyone else. I was wrong to assume that I could corral my life into a tightly orchestrated routine.

Stay Fabulous

It’s so poetic and counterintuitive that there is freedom to be found in structure. Weird to say, but I guess I like structure. I like having a morning routine to set me to rights, and a night routine to put myself to bed. These things can become indispensable companions in a world that’s topsy turvy.

The Upside of Jealousy

Experiencing jealousy is completely normal. Wait, let me say it again, just in case you missed it...

Getting jealous is normal.

It doesn’t make you bad, or immoral.  It is not proof that you are a terrible person or a terrible friend.

It nagged at me, as it tried to convince me that one glass of wine was downright healthy.  Perfect with dinner.  A great... Continue Reading →

Honesty Time

Honesty time. After saying I was going to quit red wine, I did a thing that a lot of drinkers do; I decided that one last “hurrah” was ok.  You know, to say a proper goodbye. That opportunity was perfectly presented to me yesterday. My partner, who shall henceforth be known as Mr. Stardust, decided... Continue Reading →

Another Look at Alcohol

Recently I said something about quitting alcohol. Er...about that...  Yep, you guessed it, regrettably, this effort did not stick. I don’t think that I took it seriously enough.  I backslid. I fell back into red wine, and also I drank fancy gin and tonics over the Christmas holidays.  (I highly enjoyed them. Amazing with limes.) However,... Continue Reading →

Quitting “The Game”

I cringe when I go somewhere and see everyone staring at their phones.  Oddly, it reminds me of this one episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The episode I’m thinking of shows up in  season 5. It came out in 1991, and is titled “The Game.”  In it, Wesley comes back to the Enterprise... Continue Reading →
