Five Things from The Artist's Way

2018-02-17T13:47:52-05:00

Every once in awhile I wonder where a book I own might be hiding in our many bookcases. I wonder if I even still have it! When I mentioned Morning Pages in my notebook pose, I got to wondering where my copy of The Artist's Way was. So I did my usual "scan the bookcases" thing, where I... um... scan the bookcases. Voila! I pulled it out and flipped it open. And boom, there was...



Inspiration

2018-02-15T21:41:40-05:00

As far as inspirational sayings go, I may have seemed a little snarky in my previous post. I didn't mean to, honest. I have nothing against inspirational sayings. I even have a few favorites, like this one from Nolan Bushnell: Just when you think the sun shines out of your ass, all you have is an illuminated landing strip. The Signals catalog (and others, I expect) have nice cuff bracelets engraved with inspirational words and...



Notebook Junkie

2018-02-15T14:20:27-05:00

Hello, my name is Mary, and I'm a notebook junkie. It all started many years ago when I was introduced to the Franklin Day Planner, a classic case of "first one's free." In 2016, I used a very nice planner from Ink and Volt, but it made me write down too many things. I wrote down goals - yearly, monthly, weekly. I reflected on my progress and celebrated my accomplishments. I kept track of appointments...



The Trouble with Grandma

2018-02-13T09:26:44-05:00

I've been stewing about this since I first read about it on the Clown College Graduates Facebook page. Big Apple Circus Clown Grandma Resigns A lot of wonderful people are very good friends with Barry Lubin, and they were understandably shocked and saddened by the news. I get this, I really do. It's a terrible thing to wrap your mind around - that your dear friend could do this heinous thing. Sarah Silverman discussed this...



Too Many, Too Soon

2018-02-07T21:02:42-05:00

This has been a week of melancholy shocks. I'd like to tell you about three very different friends of mine who have checked out of Hotel Earth. Janet I found out over the weekend that an old childhood friend died unexpectedly. Janet and her two sisters lived across the street and up two houses. Janet was a year older than I, and her younger sister was exactly my age. We all played together along with...



First Treatment

2018-01-31T20:50:19-05:00

Whew! My first chemo-immuno-therapy treatment is over, done and dusted, in the history books. It was everything I expected and not at all what I expected, all at the same time. Dr. S, my oncologist, and my Michele, my nurse are simply wonderful. Dr. S filled me on the drugs and how they worked and what the side effects would be. She went over the results of the FISH test, which revealed that I have...



Birthday Sunday Stealing

2018-02-12T14:20:12-05:00

I turned the corner on another year on Thursday and crossed over to 66. I am now eligible for full Social Security benefits! Of course, it's not enough to live on, so I continue to work on. If I make to 70 I'll collect more money. There's a goal for ya! Today is Joe's birthday - he's 65. Yes - a year and three days younger. He's ready to sign up for Medicare, but as...



Dia Box

2018-01-17T21:22:06-05:00

I've been seeing "sponsored posts" on my Facebook feed from Dia & Co. - an apparel subscription service for women of a certain size. I took a look at the ads and wandered on over to the website, and it looked appealing. I eventually decided, "Aw, what the hell," and filled out their style survey. However, being the suspicious sort, I asked my Facebook tribe if anyone had tried it and, if so, how they...



Saturday 9: Piano

2018-01-13T20:45:34-05:00

How about the Saturday 9 to lighten the mood? Saturday 9: Piano (2013) by Ariana Grande Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here. 1) As she sings, Ariana muses about the songs she could compose on her piano. Do you play the piano? Well, I took lessons for five years, from fourth grade through ninth grade, but - to be honest - I cannot play worth a damn anymore. Well, maybe Chopsticks. 2) She...



Decision Made

2018-01-12T16:42:24-05:00

So. I start chemo-immuno-therapy for my Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (SLL) on January 30 and 31. If we're friends on Facebook, you may know this already. I didn't make this decision lightly, like "Oh boy! This might be fun to try!" No, I read a lot. I thought a lot. I asked a lot of other people what they thought about it. And it basically comes down to Yes, I Should Do This. My most recent...
