Like moths to the flame – What’s your poison?

I SHOULD be drinking water right now,
given I’ve been out sick for the last 4 days.
I am not.  Instead, I’m drinking V8 Vfusion
vegetable & fruit juice.
Why? I like the flavor. Why not Kool Aid?
Because I’d rather have water than artificial
flavors, sugars, dyes and a variety of chemicals
that my body has to fight off the effects of.… —-> Continue…

You are what you eat – and How!

plate-w-knife-350-2It was blood. Mine.

My son and I stopped at a place I probably shouldn’t name
to reward ourselves with a Caramel Apple Frosty™ Parfait
and a Wild Berry Frosty™ Parfait.  I had the caramel apple :)
About 1/3 of the way into it, I saw a bit of what looked
like maybe some red apple peel on the spoon. … —-> Continue…

Would you have stopped?

It’s dark out and I’m driving with my
son across the 205 bridge from
Portland to Vancouver. Actually,
I’m doing all the driving – his legs
are too short to reach the pedals
and he doesn’t have a license yet.

All of a sudden the car stalls
and the engine stops.… —-> Continue…

Choose your words carefully… Please and Thank you :)

rear-view-mirror-350-b
I often think when people look in the mirror,
it’s more like the rear view mirror in a car.
They’re always looking at what’s behind them.
In Life, the same. The things we’ve done,
that have happened – past experiences
(and ALL experiences are PASSED) – everything
that has happened up until now… is behind us.… —-> Continue…

Are you STILL laying on the nail?

howler-350w
It’s hard to know where to begin.
Then again, it usually is – and that’s
the very reason I’m stopped so
many times from writing you.

So much to say – and so much in the way…
If it weren’t for that nail, tonight would be just another
missed opportunity to talk with you.… —-> Continue…
