I realized I haven’t been paying attention to this blog as I should have been. Some of you might have started thinking I died. Well I’m still here 🙂 End of January I celebrated birthday 53. Funny how mentally I don’t feel I’m that old. The body is giving subtle hints though. I have been … Continue reading I’m still alive
I’m presently sitting in the customer waiting area of an auto dealership waiting for a part replacement and oil change. I am finding more and more I hate sitting around strangers. Every time I clear my throat, you suddenly feel eyes on you like you have the plague. Which makes me want to turn around … Continue reading Public spaces
I was not prepared for taking care of an elderly parent. I guess no one really is. However, I find the support systems for doing so seem non existent or hidden away. Most of my friends have no idea what I deal with and you find that you feel you have to just suffer in … Continue reading I’m overwhelmed
In my office I work with a young kid. Guess he is what’s called the generation Z group. With him I notice something I really have not noticed with millennials and boomers on back. I notice a disconnect with things from my childhood to his. I find it unsettling in a way. From entertainment and … Continue reading Generational gap

I record entries often in my personal journal, but those are things I don’t feel like sharing with strangers. Which brings up a … Continue reading I’m still here

It’s also demonstrates the new Apple iOS 16 feature of being able to grab an image out of a photograph. … Continue reading Memories
Facebook banned me 24 hours today. So I replied I wouldn’t stop. I would run him over I know what he did to Georgie. The kid killed by Pennywise the clown/creature in the movie It. Next thing I know I’m told I am blocked for twenty-four hours. I am a bad human being. I’m inciting … Continue reading Facebook Jail
A message I never expected to see.
Recently my older brother has come back in my life. He’s 18 years older and has his own issues with our mother and other things. I was sad about the situation but was starting to accept it was how things were going to be in life. Things seem genuinely different this time. So a few … Continue reading A message I never expected to see.
When you realize you are more than your job.
The best advice I can give the younger generation is don’t let what you do for work define who you are. There is more to life than work. There is more to you than your career. Sometimes I think people use career as a way to escape life. Just don’t do it. If you were … Continue reading When you realize you are more than your job.
