Often when I do, it is the negative that I assume. As in, "He will hate this." or "He thinks … Continue reading Assumptions are Dangerous

Life is Fragile

I have this plant. I’ve managed to keep it alive for about three months knowing nothing about it. I’m not even sure I know what type it is. I have it in a pot with a sprig of spider plant. I think I need to repot it and move it. A couple of leaves have … Continue reading Life is Fragile

I am an Alien.

Sometimes I feel like an alien. It is like I do not belong on this planet. Then one day this restless feeling in my being made perfect sense. I am an alien.

No Just No

Why so Snappy?

Why is it that some people are so snappy? Why is it that they walk up to counters in coffee shops, restaurants, doctor's offices, post offices and libraries with such scowls on their faces, pointy words and harsh tones in their voices? I think the ants are back. Ants: Automatic Negative Thoughts. Maybe it is … Continue reading Why so Snappy?
