I have so much to tell you (plus NPM 30)

I think I’ll start off with the last poem of NPM 30 (of 2018, haha). Fortunately, I have a few to choose from. It’s from the same prompt group as the last two, but the prompt was “Life is but a dream.” Sh-Boom when I was younger discovering music I turned to my parents’ records…

NPM – 25 of 30

My pal, Lindsay White, posts a monthly writing challenge. For June it was to write a poem where the total number of words match your age. So mine is 46. Workout #46 my sweat smells sour as I work to lose what I can only kindly describe as grief weight extreme heat presses around me…

NPM – 25 of 30

I hate to leave things hanging, though, inevitably, it’s exactly what I do especially with regard to this blog. I abandoned the December reflections after my dad went into the hospital. I plan to write a lot more about what happened in December, but for now, I’ll say that my dad died on January 3,…

winding down

Today has been a fairly normal day. Went to work, did some training there, did some work after the training. After work, I came home and hung out and talked with Han for a bit. He’s got some great projects lined up that he’s really excited about. It’s cool. I made dinner, pork tenderloin and…

day 6 down

Nothing much to report today. Did the 4 drinks with 2 scoops again. It’s weird to say, but when I taste it, it seems familiar now. It’s hard to explain. I got home from work around 6:30 pm, and there was Doug still working. I had already made plans to go to Becky’s place to…

weekend away, stolen dough & forgotten keys

How do the weeks go by so fast? Last Tuesday, I went to Cafe Cabaret for the monthly reading. It went great. Wednesday and Thursday were days that have passed where I did nothing of significance. Probably watched some TV. Han & I are watching “The West Wing.” We didn’t watch it when it was…

March forth

It’s a directive. It’s also Han’s dad’s birthday. I didn’t do much marching today. In fact, I had kind of a tough afternoon and morning. I mean, for mornings, it wasn’t terrible. I had to go downtown for a work event. The event was held on the 34th floor of Symphony Towers – great views!…

AmericanaramA and other events

Hello! Man, you get out of the routine, and it’s hard to get back in! I missed writing when I went up to visit Mom and Dad the weekend of July 19-21, and then it just didn’t happen! Here are some things I did: – On July 26, I went to a poetry slam at…

March 2-3

I had started a very contented post on March 10, the day the time changed. I thought I had saved it as a draft, but it’s gone into the ether of WordPress. I find it ironic that I am the worst at keeping up my blog. My sister, my mom, my aunt, and my dad…

full-swing summer

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous in San Diego, and today was no exception. I went to a movie this morning called “Safety Not Guaranteed.” I love finding movies that are not in the mainstream. This movie starred Aubrey Plaza (from “Parks and Recreation”) and Jake Johnson (from “New Girl”). It was pretty good. I…
