Wanted: 1 human allotment of joy, gone missing about 10 months ago, deeply missed.  Glimpsed briefly on occasion but darted away again.  If seen, grab it and hold on tightly. 

Joy.  What does it mean?  How do we find it and better question, how to we hang on to it?  A couple of months back, some of my family and I were on a shuttle bus, being transported like cattle from one end to the other of a resort along with a couple of other families.  Most of the riders were lost in their own…

Ever try to zip up a back zipper?  It’s almost impossible.  I mean, I’m sure there is a way to accomplish that but hell if I can figure it out  And now I have this itch in the middle of my back that I cannot reach.

This is a difficult time of year; late winter, very early spring when everything is dry and brown.  I’ve never liked it.  I find my eyes scouring the countryside, trees, and ditches, thirsty for a glimpse of green with a kind of desperation.  There is a deep seated need to feel refreshed and reborn.  To see hope manifest.  And the thing is, if you don’t watch carefully, you’ll miss it.  It seems like suddenly, the grass is green, flowers are starting to come up, and the trees are misted with…

How to Cope?

I am struggling with the loss of my step-dad unexpectedly and them my Grandma passed away unexpectedly. I was closer to my step-dad as my mother and him moved across town from us. I feel like being in the medical field I let him down.



I would do lunch and spend time with my grandma as often as I could. I called her on February 11th and made plans for lunch on February 20th. She was happy and said she had been feeling well. Within 4 hours my uncle called and my grandma was gone. How… Continue

    I lost my mom to suicide October 25, 2014. I struggle everyday with anger. I desperately want to talk to her again. We were best friends. The pain is so strong and I don't know what to do without her.
