“Q” is for questions, quality VS quantity, Queen, quagmire and waggy tailed animal butts

Happy Monday Travellers,

Today is brought to you by the arctic blast that just arrived here in Kansas. The weekend was a glorious 65-70 degrees, all sunny and stuff. Last night winter rather savagely elbowed it’s way into our lives.

Today the letter is “Q”…oh, and if you are new, let’s check out a few other letters so you can catch the plot here…Imagination Mondays, all fun, all day, you can do it!!

Are you curious?

Good evening Travellers,

Earlier this morning, I gave birth to a beautiful bouncing baby post. I saw it, held it, heard it and then published it. And then POOF, gone. ALL. GONE.

ALL MY WORDS GONE. All 1500 of them. There is no word to describe how that felt.

Imagine going thru the delivery of your baby, you see your baby, hold it and then, well, NO BABY. In fact, said baby went back into my proverbial belly, or rather mind in this case, awaiting future possible re-delivery. I guess at least I didn’t have to have an episiotomy, am I right?

A few Friday musings on marriage, metamorphosis, worms and money

It’s Friday Travellers,

And I have a lot of thoughts, maybe get a cup of tea for this…

I’ve been trying to add up the number in my mind of women whom I have met since my divorce, who are also divorced, and have quite emphatically told me that they’ve never been happier than well, being on their own. Happily divorced. SO HAPPY. Not fake happy, like glowy. And all ages, not just mid-life or late in life, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, I mean I bet it’s been near a dozen women now…some random strangers, almost like the universe is speaking to me…it just happened again last night.

Getting your ducks in a row

Buenas Dias Travellers,

Let’s just start with this amazing song I found last night on YouTube, love Lewis Capaldi’s voice, just yea…let’s start there, I just felt like wow, that is an unflinchingly honest break up song…and not sad either, just honest…I think we short change endings to stories that we perceive as unhappy.  I think necessary endings have a merit of their own…a sort of full circle completeness if you will…no one said every journey’s end would arrive with a smile on it’s face. And that’s alright…

THE MEANING OF LIFE IS…

Happy Tuesday Travellers,

My sincerest apologies for missing Imagination Monday. There was a washing machine/laundry disaster that took away my morning and very briefly my sanity as well. It’s amazing how all the things humans have built for convenience become so f*cking inconvenient when they break down.

I’ve arrived today to share with you the meaning of LIFE. I know, I know, many people promise the answer to this question, but I’m here to deliver. Now, I would like you to know up front, I could be wrong as I didn’t create the universe, but lately I’ve been learning a thing or two about myself and well, I think I may have found something. Something deep down the the darker recesses of my cave of my soul.

Raising the Dead

Happy Halloween Travellers,

OR All Hallows’ Eve, OR my favorite to say and most intriguing by far, Dia de los Muertos! AKA Day of the Dead. Which sounds like the name of zombie movie, but it’s really not…

I’ve been thinking about this post in my mind for the past few days because I have so much to say and want it be as meaningful in words as it is inside myself. I’m not sure I can do that because I find when I try to be profound, I always fall flat on my face versus just let the words come out…

Life as a fortune cookie

Good morning Travellers,

Let’s see what I come up with here in my 60 minute window today…

When I was married, we ate a lot of Chinese Food. Or it seemed like a lot looking back from here. Every Sunday evening, we ate it while watching “The Walking Dead”. Then that show lost it’s way and our Sunday night regularly scheduled dinner went with it.

I think we can all agree that good Chinese food is hard to find…but when you do it’s almost like crack cocaine, you crave it and it’s addictive and SO GOOD. To be clear, not endorsing drug use, obviously, but when something is disturbingly good, crack seems to be the comparative, doesn’t it? We had a pretty good little joint near our home and they had rather good fortune cookies.

The Laundromat

Welcome back Travellers,

This little train of thought is brought to you by my local laundromat. I’ve been going to the nearest one this past week due to my washing machine being on the blink. I’m currently waiting on the part that’s been ordered to repair it. It feels like it’s taking forever…which is how everything feels that’s inconvenient to us, isn’t it?

“P” is for plants and planting, perfectional, & beanstalk ladders

Happy Monday Travellers,

I took a little hiatus last week for some soul searching AKA, having no time to write in the mornings as I’m trying to rehab my ankle and I’m feeling lost at large in life right now.

I actually could not get this to post this morning, so I’m here after dinner, trying to get it on. Again…

Because of course, I would not miss a Monday to spread some imaginative FUN!! Morning or evening…Mondays deserve us to show up with a better attitude don’t they? Think of the weight Monday has to carry on it’s little back. It’s the day that follows the weekend, it’s the work after the party or naps. Mondays deserve some sympathy…and fun.
