First, my sincerest apologies for prior posts that were entirely too over-the-top, philosophical and serious (well serious-ish). They sucked, but quite frankly each seemed like a good idea at the moment. Yet another nice reminder of why editors are priceless; they prevent the shit from hitting the press (or fan)....

Thanks!! You need to write on here, too! Sent from my iPhone
Can you remember those childhood moments of "I know I shouldn't do _____", the kind of kid-logic effery that produced your mom yelling your full name? Which meant you were in BIG trouble, or at least you knew one lengthy lecture was imminent. She would always asked why you did... Continue reading

There are never actually endings, save perhaps death, depending of course on your spiritual inclination. There are only beginnings. Each step we take is new, fresh and even though perhaps a path we've trodden before, it is never quite the same. It may indeed give the appearance of sameness, but... Continue reading

I suspect we can all identify with those moments when someone reminds us of just how much we are like a parent or parents,or just other family members. Genetics and the environment play such incredibly large roles in our development and who we are or become in life; it is... Continue reading

The winds of change, or sometimes even the lightest breeze of movement of one's life in an alternate direction can lend new ideas, differing approaches, and a deeper understanding of ones self, situation or issue. Clarity reveals itself where confusion ruled. The absolute and definitive clearing of the muddied waters... Continue reading

OK, so unlike my self-satisfying gibberish-with-a-few-jewels of genius occasionally landing as I write on this blog, I have been actually doing (yawn) professional writing; namely, white papers on various nerdy healthcare reimbursement topics. I'm fairly certain I'm currently in level 6 purgatory of writer's block, so please bear with me... Continue reading

We all know what a secret ingredient is in our world of concrete existence; Colonel Sanders has one for his extra crispy chicken, the local bakery has one for their stellar scones...grandmother had one for her chili; hell, even superman had one. But, what if that secret ingredient wasn't a... Continue reading

Face it, no one really ever wants to know or face the truth or reality about much of anything in life. We all scurry about like little mice, filling our coffers with the cheese of the day, and smiling when we are given what we really want...rose colored glasses. Facts... Continue reading

The midst of the evening is always best for my slightly profound and mainly obvious meandering of thoughts and ideas. And, the later it gets the less filter I have, sometimes not a positive attribute but again, I shall quote Scarlet O'Hara and note scarcasim as the main food groups of waxing poetic.
Well, actually there are more than six, but according to the most recent gut-wretching, coma-inducing work-related mumbo-jumbo marketing book I forced myself to read, that number simply sounds better. Why? Well, according to said coffee table ornament, six is better for a variety of reasons, all of which I'm pretty... Continue reading

First and foremost, if you've never read "The Bluegrass Conspiracy", you should, especially if you are from the Bluegrass State or simply enjoy the sport of kings that is thoroughbreds and racing in the arguable "horse capital of the world". Point of personal privilege, this title is only arguable if... Continue reading

Ok, my dear friend the internet guru, steeplechase and racing cohort, this little ditty has been composed at your behest! As for the rest of you (save a couple)...well, try to follow along with our horsey slang and bizarre sense of humor and accomplishment at simply not dying in the... Continue reading

We think we have it all planned out; the course, the direction, the trajectory of our lives, all directed toward a series of land and life marks that define our society and what we should be or do. But, we are lying to ourselves. We have no freaking clue what... Continue reading

Typically decisive to a fault, I find myself flopping about in decision-land like a sea-bass stuck in a draining tidal pool, spying multiple routes but just off-balance enough to question my navigation of the jagged rocks and charred coral lining the paths. It's actually a perfect analogy, even more so... Continue reading

So, here it is in a nutshell…life is an adventure. It always has been, and likely always will be, or at least I hope so. And, in this particular life, I seem to have the knack for being in precisely the wrong place at exactly the right time. Always. And,... Continue reading

Ah, the metaphor, how I do love thee! Seriously, when one is trying to explain and assimilate an idea or theory that is complex, individualized, and the very antithesis of concrete, nothing quite captures or quantifies the idea like a well-articulated metaphor. So, humor lovers...stop reading now... right now, as... Continue reading

A very well intentioned acquaintance ever so tactfully pointed out that my blog, intending to depict light-hearted humor and satirical female viewpoints, had of recent times become...well... dark and distant and a bit twisted. Notably, I had somewhat attempted, obviously unsuccessfully, to camouflage that fact with a few positive spins... Continue reading

"Mom...Moooom...MOM!!!! Get down from there, everyone's looking at you and you're going to fall, I just know it", says the not yet ten year old as she squints to look up at me perched between two limbs of a big-ass tree. It's merely incidental said tree is in some random... Continue reading

One day we all wake up and realize we are doing it all wrong. The realization. quite frankly, sucks. So, what do you do? You change it, you sell the damn commercial horse farm you built because you can't run it and a career and a coming 10 yo kid... Continue reading

Let's be honest; no matter how you plan, no matter how definitive your path, life's still just one big effing gamble. For the bloodstock agent, its a no-guarantee season. To the car guru, it's an "as is" sale. More importantly, it's a long series of choices. Which train do we... Continue reading

Life is never easy; nor are the choices it often presents. We, as mere humans, so often erroneously muddle through it as best as possible, accepting the hand we felt fate has dealt us, and simply try to make the best of it. Period. End of story. Our half-hearted shrugs... Continue reading

The Merriam-Webster defines a place card as "a card that marks a place reserved for occupancy". In essence, it is the thing, or person, that is holding, or defining, a missing or absent part. If we apply this to our life, we've all had place cards. Sometimes that place card... Continue reading

Sometimes, it's the process of mixing lemonade's ingredients that keeps us all sane, and changes the acid burn to a sweeter concoction of more palatable notes. The actual product born is simply the gravy, an added addition that hopefully makes us a little happier, a little wiser, and maybe even... Continue reading
