 Musings From A Muse

I haven’t been here in a long time.  Much has happened.  I’m divorced, living in a brand new apartment.  It’s taken awhile to feel worthy of being in the space I am.  Why are we so hard on ourselves?  I have a male friend who is the opposite.  He has a grandiose idea of himself.  […]


Why and when did packaging become an olympic event?  It takes herculean efforts to open a package of cotton balls.  I have battle wounds and scars as I sit here a week after I’ve moved into my new apartment.  All due to attempting to open items I bought. Between a box cutter and heavy duty […]

 Count Down

Here it is 6:30 am on April 25.  Up for too long already.  I guess going to see my attorney this morning is weighing on my already overloaded mind.  And here I am again to vent and hopefully release some frustrations, confusion, anger…. The last two weeks I had two mediations for a total of […]

 The Next Chapter

May 3, 2017.  While I’ve been in limbo since September 1, 2016, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  May 3 the divorce will be final.  What should have been a simple case has turned into a ridiculous 3-ring circus thanks to the attorneys.  Yes, and has gotten ugly and […]

Starting out with this divorce we […]

 The Price of Peace

What am I willing to give up?  Apparently after 29 years of marriage and more than a decade and a half of living like roommates, a lot.  I walked away from my home and my security five months ago.  Fear kept me paralyzed for over 15 years.  What made me finally decide enough was enough? […]

 Everyone Has A Story to Tell

I love to hole up in a cozy booth in a coffee shop. People fascinate me. I’ll sit and wonder about their lives. What fork in the road did they take along life’s journey? Why is that old guy so grouchy? What’s their story? What made them bitter, angry, frustrated? What was their childhood like? […]
