On being a survivor

On being a survivor

The thing that sucks about being a “survivor” is the process of survival. The process of getting up and living and working and being in the face of something horrendous.

While the terror is far gone, the aftermath lives on. I am half life, sometimes. Like those big, snorting, three tusked boars that walk around Chernobyl feasting on toxic grass. I have survived, but don’t know how and sometimes, don’t know why. (more…)

Sweetness and light

Sweetness and light

I know, I need to lighten the hell up around here. I’ve done that for my friend Dawn. Go visit and say hello, won’t you?

But the truth is, friends, I am going through it.

News from the neuro is, not terrible. I am a “classic migraineur”. Seriously, is that a word? But apparently while am classic, I am also severe. In case, you know, I didn’t know that. I like this doctor, as he’s given me some natural alternatives as well as medication to combat the headaches when they hit. Which, thankfully, are no longer daily. Amen. (more…)

What they don’t tell you

What they don’t tell you

What they don’t tell you is that you will be cold. You will be cold when you go into the room, dressed in their spare scrub pants. You will be cold, there in your bare feet and your lavender shirt, which clashes with their spare scrub pants. They are blue. Like your toes, because you are cold and they didn’t tell you.

They didn’t tell you that you would have to take off your rings, until you got into a small, but stylish room. So you walk in, naked fingered cradling your arms close to your chest, which is without a bra. Another thing they could have told you. (more…)

Does it edify?

Does it edify?

My Grandfather’s bible is a wonderful thing. A holy thing, of curled and gold edged pages. King James, and underlined. Leafed through and notated and well used. Well loved.

My Grandfather, a tall man, a gentle man, with a voice that was strong and real and devastating. He spoke truth in the tone of pure love. He spoke truth in a lilting and glorious tumble of biblical fire. I could feel the fire of his voice lick at my toes as he spoke, raise goosebumps on the back of my neck.

A simple ” I love you” was divine scripture. (more…)

Therapy Notes: just the right amount

Therapy Notes: just the right amount

Sometimes, I think, he likes to see me cry.

Sometimes it feels like he does it on purpose. Then, other times, in the tumbling waves of our turbulent conversations a topic comes up and grasps me; unaware.

This particular topic never fails to leave me a mess. I am unable to completely control the tear flow. I cry, looking away from him, from my stone lady in whom I almost always seek solace. I look out the glass door to the parking lot, watching people drive to separate lives from mine. Yet, he never looks away from me. (more…)

Anti rozatoare

Anti rozatoare

Vrei sa scapi de rozatoare sau te-ai saturat de gaurile in gazon? Sau te-ai saturat ca rozatoarele sa-ti strice culturile pe camp? Atunci ar trebui sa cumperi un aparat anti rozatoare cu ultrasunete. Dispozitivul anti rozatoare functioneaza cu o baterie solara pe principiul unui emitator cu ultrasunete. Dispozitivul produce si propaga in jurul sau valuri sonore, care provoaca rozatoarelor un sentiment de anxietate si disconfort, si, in acelasi timp  le obliga sa paraseasca zona de actiune a aparatului. Astfel, pe o suprafata de aproximativ 650 de metri patrati, terenul va fi fara daunatori. (more…)

6 REASONS TO GIVE DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW ANOTHER CHANCE

6 REASONS TO GIVE DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW ANOTHER CHANCE

In an unorthodox scheduling move, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl are sharing the Monday night 9 p.m. timeslot as both finish their third seasons. Starting next Monday, Legends airs in place of Supergirl, which will in return in April. To some, the split-scheduling suggests a loss in confidence in The CW’s strangest superhero show. But according to CW President Mark Pedowitz, its audience is incredibly loyal and followed the show from its original Thursday night slot to Tuesdays. Presumably, they will be there for the Monday night move as well. (more…)
