I've only read two books about "death." And one of them was really more about Heaven, not really so much death because the author totally lived to tell his tale of Heaven. Ok, so I've read only one. One book by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. She's totally famous because of those 5 Stages of Grief model. I … Continue reading g-cycles
Pretty sweet, right? Two trophies. A winning engine cut in half by our water-jet. There was a ceremony where these two bad boys would be presented on the evening of Saturday, February 3rd. We had to ship them to TX. The shipping company told Jon they would arrive on Friday. Perfect. And then... Oh shit. … Continue reading A Tale of Two Trophies
HA! I just realized that almost all my "titles" have included question marks. What's up with that? No. For reals. Why do I do that? I'm working on what this blog will be "all about." If you know me, even a baby bit, you know I'm kinda all over the place. I don't necessarily … Continue reading ???

Is there someone out there who stumbled across the locale, decided to check it out, and fall in love? Tonight I was driving home from an event and noticed … Continue reading Wonderings
On this day. January 18. Eight years ago. Jon sent me a friend request. Big whoop? Um, no. You see... This was divine intervention. Or something... Friday night I had a dream. This was pretty typical - I was newly "separated and filed for divorce" and saw Chicago Therapist on Saturday mornings. Friday to Saturday … Continue reading fate? miracle? karma?
