About me…

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. ~Robert Frost

This is me.  I am this.  I am writing.  I am words.  I am human.  These pages will be me in all my unashamed, unabashed honesty and forthrightness.

It’s about life, love, surviving a damaging childhood, and seeking the answers to any numbers of why.  And audience participation…because if you have any answers for me, please feel free to shout them right out.

It’s about middle age, being a grandmother, being a mother, learning every single day that all of this matters and yet, not an ounce of it matters.

It’s about trying to bring healthy back, spreading love as I meet people, and living as if each day counts even though it doesn’t.

I am 51 years old, I am an American citizen, I am gay, I am a woman, I am a transcriptionist, and I am a mother.  If you can relate to any of this, if you can help me remember who I am, it would be greatly appreciated.  I know nothing of keeping a blog; I only hope that this will help someone, if only myself because I matter, I count, I am someone.

When I die and my name is mentioned, I want people to smile.

Now, go on then, desire me irresistibly, why don’t you?

  1. Life is about the journey and I am all about enjoying my crone years and not giving a shit what others think.
    If a person has a good heart and is a real human being it will show.
    If not that will show too.
    Do not worry about a label. You are you and that could never be just one thing:)
    Variety is the spice of life:)

  2. Blogs are made of words….so true. It is strange that feeling of being dissociated from ourselves…I know (well, I have this feeling) it too….

  3. A wise woman once told me, “If everyone likes you, you’re doing something wrong.” Over the years I’ve come to believe it means that if everyone likes you then you’re telling people what they want to hear and presenting yourself differently from one person to the next. No matter whether people like who you are or don’t, it’s impressive that you’re willing to be honest to yourself and others.

    • If I can’t be myself here, there’s no other place left. Work is a farce, simply a place we show up for a period of time and they pay us money. Home is where I want most to be myself and yet, I’m torn there – too much honesty and there’s conflict; keep it to myself and there’s a different conflict, so again a mask is worn. So here I am and this may be all there is. Thanks for the note. Nice to see the world actually does have thinking people in it.

    • Inspiring?! Me? Maybe it’s early where you are and you haven’t had coffee yet. I’m going to go on that assumption. Inspiring. That’s a hoot. I’ve always considered myself, not a good example really but more of a warning label. Do Not Do This Ever! But I shall play your cunning game, and pass it along. I know when I’ve been outwitted. 😉

      • Yes, you! You have an amazing attitude and your wonderful personality always shines through in your work. Inspiration can be found in even the most adventurous of people. You’re a pillar of strength so yes, you are inspirational! That’s me and the coffee speaking there 😛
