Subtle shift

I saw the company doctor today. Just a regular annual check-up. Blood pressure’s up but still a healthy 120/80. Cholesterol’s up but within the healthy range. Iron levels are good. Heart and lungs also sounding normal. Lung capacity still rocks. I don’t feel like I’m going to be 47 in less than two months. One […]

Decisions and teeth

“You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay has a list of metaphysical and/or emotional reasons for physical ailments and attendant, healing affirmations. Some time this summer my right front incisor started to feel slightly looser. It seemed to be able to lean a bit against its neighboring teeth. By last week, I was feeling […]

Rain and days off

The wind just picked up and the rain is pouring down. I am going to have a long weekend. I’m taking Monday and Tuesday off from work. No particular reason except that I’ve been wanting to just Get Away From It All for a while. So sitting here, with the weekend’s shopping all done, I […]

Some stuff to think about

Recent surfing that caught my attention: “Married women do more of the housework” Men who are merely living together with their girlfriends, help out more. Studies about what happens after a long-term live-in arrangement becomes marriage have not been done. (Do them!) “Orchids may have been trampled on by T. Rex” (Bad, Rex, bad!) A […]

Crystal

Sravana writes about an aura test, which includes a bit about so-called Indigo children. I took the test, not really expecting it to be more than entertaining, but the last questions about “red overlay” made me cry. After answering about likes and dislikes of various kinds, came a reminder about how an abusive or neglectful […]

And so it begins

I tell people I’m on a diet. Don’t know why, really. I guess I just don’t want to keep it secret. So now I have people telling me that I must be joking. They tell me I look great. Have I accidentally sabotaged myself? While it is nice to get compliments, having been 120 pounds […]

Birds, bulges and benches

Yes, another four days since I last posted. Here’s why: SATURDAY: “Dawn’s at 5:45 am. I’ll pick you up at 5 am.” So I got up at 4:30-ish, starting making the coffee for the thermos and gathering the breakfast sandwiches I had made the evening before, dressed warmly, stuffed a small rucksack and grabbed my […]
