Reflections on a smoky day

The smoke thickens the air.My breath wheezing with every intake.Thank God for my inhaler.It took sometime before I acquired a prescription.Fate, it seems played a preliminary hand.Foretelling of the events to come – Covid-19 and smoke.Who could have foreseen this last year?No one.Only fate it seems anticipates. I can breathe now.The drug has kicked in.The … Continue reading Reflections on a smoky day

Delving deep

This only first draft, so my goal for this year is to get it all out. I want to complete the first run and get the story on paper with all the chapters. Already, I can observe that snippets of the story will need to be reorganized to help with story flow. Right now, there … Continue reading Delving deep

A step in the right direction

At my heaviest I was almost 240lbs (109Kg, or 17 stone), that’s not something anyone wants to brag about. I am 5’4” (1.6m) and I am morbidly obese. I wasn’t always so. Up until I was 16 or 17 years old, I was 135 to 140lbs with a 30” waist. I never started putting on … Continue reading A step in the right direction

This lock-down

This lock-down is taking its toll on me and I need to express myself. I have been working from home since April 1st, 2020. Before then, I was off work due to a terrible cold and with the Covid-19 virus event happening, I was told to stay home. I am at high-risk with pre-existing conditions. … Continue reading This lock-down

Self isolation getting you down?

This is a mental health check-in. Is the self-isolating getting you down? For the most part, I am doing okay. A lot of my friends think that I am an extrovert. I think I am more of an introvert-extrovert. An introvert-extrovert (ambivert), in case you don't know can be defined as: one who "is moderately … Continue reading Self isolation getting you down?

My week and how I spend it

The sky is getting lighter earlier in the mornings and later in the evenings. It’s been overcast a lot, so I cannot say that it is getting brighter. It’s supposed to be sunny here most of this weekend; however, I see nothing but clouds over head. Perhaps, the cloud cover will burn off later. I … Continue reading My week and how I spend it

I didn’t do much of anything over the holidays

I had twelve days off at Christmas including weekends, and I didn't do much of anything. Prior to the holidays, I had lots of plans to write. I relaxed instead. In hindsight, I think I was too burnt out to do much. It has been extremely busy at work. It still is now that I … Continue reading I didn’t do much of anything over the holidays

Last outing in town (while I still live here)

I met a few friends for dinner and a few drinks last night. I haven’t seen them for quite sometime. I guess I could have tried to see them more often, but we both live in the same city and we’re not too far from one another. I didn’t want to over welcome myself, so … Continue reading Last outing in town (while I still live here)
