Failed Villains

I have a secret passion - besides blogging. Fus Ro DAH...!  If you know what that means, you KNOW what I'm talking about. Skyrim.  Yes, I am a "gamer."  I do play the RPG types of video games (role play games for those not into that sort of thing).  But I also play...

My Dream – Mine

Had a dream of a husband, kids and being a stay at home mom...until the kids were at school.  We were in a large house in an upper-middle-class residential neighborhood in the Upper Midwest.  The schools were superb, the neighbors were excellent, crime was non-existent, the streets were wide and no cars were ever on… Continue reading My Dream – Mine

Something I Forgot

I lost it.  Completely. My will, broken, shattered.  My focus vanished.  My desire to do anything?  Pfft! Gone.  I began to wonder "Why?"  Why I lost that job that looked so promising.  Why I had to move when it wasn't even me that was at fault - I was set to be homeless, thanks to the government… Continue reading Something I Forgot

Bird With A Broken Wing

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/ascend/ A heartbreaking sight; the winged gift from the gods fall from heaven Injuries from overuse, yes but mostly from Man and it's disgraceful What majesty bears in such amazing feats in the skies; such a blessing To see the wings of a majestic bird in flight; oh, so graceful Glorious.  Beautiful.  Majestic.  Poetry in… Continue reading Bird With A Broken Wing

Not knowing.  Not understanding.  Not seeing the signs.  Reality has gone Culminating in an altered state so… Continue reading And Then…She Jumped

Reflections in the Broken Looking Glass

I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure.  I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.  But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. --Marilyn Monroe These past days, weeks and months have taught me a great deal… Continue reading Reflections in the Broken Looking Glass

Dance of the Snake

It always begins... with.... a strike of a match.... the strange smell like gasoline....                The flick of the wrist to douse the flame from the match.... But? The end of the cigarette is lit.  It just...burns.  It doesn't...do anything Wait!  The smoke!  It's a single string into the air… Continue reading Dance of the Snake
