Monologues of Life

"We all live monologues. These conversations with ourselves are the endless, anarchic commentary running in our brains. They contain — just barely — our rage and desperation. They are the rough drafts of spoken discourse, the side trips into daydream irrelevancies, the lusts and prejudices left unsaid but so deeply felt. Ultimately, our interior monologues amount to a lifelong novel in progress, or perhaps the world's windiest suicide note. Transcribed, they could tell more about what we are than everything we do."

Our lives are depictions of 'snapshots' in time, places we were, things we did and the memories of the past.  Whether it be commentary, notes in a shoebox or those thoughts and words we huddle in the corner to hide away from others, they are all our thoughts and they are important and newsworthy and part of us through every step we take on our journeys.

I find this article so interesting, so poignant, so "present" at this time in my life.  In our journey through life we collect mementos, catalog our snapshots both tangible and those in our memory and these are the things that are the most 'telling' of our lives, our history, our souls.  It's the little things in our lives that mean the very most.

Peace today and always.


Another Birthday for 'My Girl' 10.16.2011

I still have that little yellow sticky note taped to the side of my computer monitor; it's been here for 3 years and a day as a reminder I placed there 3 years ago to remember to buy a card for Di.  I still can't bear to take it down...the tape is still holding it firmly and it's a reminder for me everyday of that last birthday that Di had.  The last birthday that I brought a card to her.

I could really use a Di hug right about now...
Time marches on but the hurt remains the same...

Longing for a whisper of the past...

Knowing Where To Go In The Vastness

"It would be a lie to say that she was healed, heart full as an udder again.

But I can tell you she was precisely where she needed to be, even
in her brokenness, and she would know where to go
from here."

--Maya Stein, Crossing the Border


The people we meet form the foundation of our lives that when built upon allow us to bloom and blossom in ways that we never would have anticipated.
