When it rains, it puddles.

May 15, 2013

I originally posted this on Facebook on Friday, May 10, 2013. I think it’s blog-worthy.

I did a good deed today during lunch. I really wasn’t going to announce this to the Facebook world because I didn’t do it for bragging rights. I did it because it was right, and it made me feel good.

Something funny happened immediately afterwards, and so that’s why I want to share.

I had just left my office for lunch, and it was raining. I saw a woman, in a nice work outfit and heels, walking down the sidewalk headed towards Westheimer Rd. She was drenched. I hesitated but then stopped and offered her a ride. She accepted. She had to abandon her car several miles away because the streets were flooding, and she didn’t want to get her car stuck in deep water. While I was driving her to her apartment several miles away, she told me she was reluctant to accept a ride because one time she accepted a ride from two ladies who held a gun to her head! Yikes!

I dropped her off and was headed up Westheimer Rd. to my lunch spot, smiling, feeling good, knowing I did the right thing by stopping, yeah, yeah, woohoo.

Then, — sigh — I drove through a large puddle of water and totally drenched some poor dude waiting at a bus stop.

Thank you, Universe!

I’m coming to you live from my iPhone. I just discovered this app.

It’s been almost a year, my friends. I’ve missed you all. I need to get back in the game.

I hope all my blogger friends are doing well – REALLY.

It’s past my bedtime, so I’m keeping this short.

Good night.


I’m here.

I’m here. It’s been two months since my last post…

That sounds a bit like a confession.

Man, I don’t multitask well when there’s a “situation” in my life. (I originally used the word “crisis” ’cause that’s what it feels like.)

My blog and blogger friends have been on my mind lately. I hope you all out there in cyber-space are doing well. I hope to spend some time with Google Reader this weekend and get caught up on all the goings on.

So, we’ll chat soon.

Life is a lump in my throat.

What do I mean by this?

I’m referring to those moments when life stops you dead in your tracks, when you have to take a pause because it’s too overwhelming; when the emotions build up inside of you, and you’re left with this excruciating pain in your throat – the lump. That’s it. The physical manifestation of it all being too much… just. too. much.

My life is filled with lots of those moments.

I haven’t been very good at managing them. I usually let them swallow me up. They take me down… and I stay down.

It’s time that I get up; that I really start fighting back. I have it in me. I just know I do.


My Voice

November 17, 2008

Well, it’s been a few weeks since I decided to start this blog, and I haven’t posted anything. I’ve felt all this pressure to know ahead of time what my purpose for this blog should be. Anytime I’ve had an idea for a post, I’ve immediately sensored myself. I seem very concerned about who will be reading this.

What do I have to share with the world? What do I want to share with the world? How much of my inner self do I want to expose???

This is my first attempt at my own blog. We’ll see how it goes.
