The Sunday Post: Fences (Day 94)

I had a revelation last night. It didn’t happen while washing dishes, or taking a shower, or while driving. That’s usually how and when they happen, of course, when I’m in the middle of something else and all of a sudden the pot that was simmering in the back burner starts to whistle and demands…

The Sunday Post: Sorting out Feelings

Someone asked me today about my feelings for my ex: Did I have any? Is there anything still unresolved (in my head or heart)? They asked me this question while letting me know I didn’t have to answer right away, or ever if I didn’t want to. I did answer, and right now I can’t…

My Single Life: Day 74

As you may have already figured out, I’ve been working on myself over the last several months.

My Single Life: Day 37

I had multiple ideas last night for a post or two, and maybe even for the continuation of Jenny’s story, which I’m still working on, but of course I did not get out of bed to write them down. I was tired. I kind of remember a few of them…. This is (just) a quick…

You’re Doing it Wrong

Is there a wrong way to do it? I’m referring to dating, in case you can’t read my mind. Maybe specifically online dating, but mostly dating in general. This is so new to me. I keep thinking that my case is unusual, that most people have dated much more than I have at some point…
