No Shame In Shame

It seems that the longer I go down this journey of uncovering, discovering (and hopefully discarding and/or applying), the less I seem to know. The more I understand, the less I truly understand. The more questions I seem to answer only creates even more questions, like bunny rabbits left unchecked with Barry White music left…

This Is A Description, Not An Indictment

I’ve been doing some work over the last week or two.  Recovery work.  Step work, to be honest.  One doesn’t ever graduate from doing this kind of work.  There aren’t diplomas that hang from our walls when we go through this stuff, same as I don’t have one for having a child.  I just continue…

Myth Busting With A Rocket Launcher

“I don’t ride in snow. Period.” This is something I have said countless times. It’s been a rather nasty winter this year, and those who know me also know about my almost religious attachment to my bicycle riding. So they will often ask me whether I am going to hop onto my two wheels when…

Upon Where I Touched Another Woman’s Boob

It’s not what you think. Or more accurately, it is sort of is what you think, but it’s not why you think it is. Let me back up. I have this thing I do at work.  Well, work is mainly the one thing I do at work (okay, I might hang out on the computer a bit…

The Verdict

Word finally came down from Her Honour yesterday.   It has been over two years of legal jumping jacks and deciding what tie to wear with my suit.  It’s been over two years of having the Sword of Damocles hanging over me.  It’s been over two years of delays, listening to sad case after sad…

Slow Ripening Fruit

I am not a good friend. Ok, now let me rephrase that in a more positive light, in a new context, a way that doesn’t make me sounds whiny and self-pitying, which is not the point of this writing.  Here goes again. I haven’t learned to be a good friend. Is that better?  Does it…

The Bubble

The Bubble. I don’t often think of it, but now and then it comes to mind.  It came up yesterday, as I was responding to one of Belle’s posts in her boombastic blog (I have been known to comment now and then on other blogs). The Bubble. If there was one thing, and one thing alone,…

Time Capsule – The Letter to Papi

I have a time capsule.   It’s nothing like the ones they put in schools or space shuttles, but it’s as grounding and poignant.  And it’s not really a capsule, but a file folder.  A slender one at that.  But inside remains the things that remind me to this day where I was at one…

Balancing the Universe?

It’s funny what comes into our lives when we’re not running it.  That is the one thing that I am in awe of.  The third step commitment to continue the program and give my life and will to God has given me gifts that I never thought possible. We’ve been blessed with a new child in…
