Back from where? From nowhere...

Hello fellow bloggers.

It has been so long since I wrote that maybe I have forgotten how to do it.

MMM no. I still have enough rant in me to write.

I have to say that life gives all sorts of twists and turns and even for someone like me who takes things in stride very easily. Sometimes, I get broadsided. WHaM ! Didn't see that coming.

kicking myself in the ass

OK I've got to shake this. My friends haven't kicked my ass for me, so I better do it. Must get out of the blues.

Above, is the picture of my best friend. my bud, my companion for 18 years. He is in cat heaven now. I hope he is having lots of fun. He deserves it. It is hard on me though. He is sort of the only one that really took my crap and came back to be schmoozed and pet. What a pal.

This blog is dedicated to him. He went from a frisky little fluff ball. Running up the stairs he could barely jump. He looked so cute tumbling around fiercely batting at our feet. He was a gift given to me. I at first never wanted pets as gifts, but I couldn't resist him. He chose me too. So, I guess we were stuck with each other. He had attitude right from the beginning (much like his owner) but still had that warmth to come and snuggle on the couch.
I will miss him...I do miss him.
I suppose life is like that.

still kicking....

It’s funny how life has a way of giving you the perspective you run so hard to escape. Inevitably it catches up with you. That is this year.

I just realized that I had better write as the last post read rather bleakly. I didn’t want people to think I had offed myself. Things are getting better, slowly. I am not at work at the moment, which really forces you to look at things. Well, for me it does.

What am I looking at you may ask? A person who has put so much time into work there is not much life left when that isn’t there. Our society describes success as money, house, car, and job. I know not all people, but society as a whole. What can you do to break out of that?
It is the bohemian in me. I want to create, live, love, relax, read...but none of that pays the bills. Create maybe, but that is so subjective.

I will lighten up soon, I hope. I want my sense of humour back. I think it went on vacation.

I want my joy back...I hope that didn’t leave me all together.

life changes = reflection

Well, I seem to have time on my hands so I am back in bloggerland for awhile.

Big changes... that what does it. Not just the ones you see coming like a MAC truck on a Saskatchewan highway, but those that sneak up on you and bite you in the ass.
They make your life come to a grinding halt, and then you have to try to piece together a. What the hell just happened? and b. What the hell do I do now?

Not an easy answer and no one can help you in those decisions. I am not talking about should I take a new job?... should I buy that car? those easy choices.

No this is more life is totally changed and it will never get back to the way it was. It may be OK and it may work out in another path. It won't be the same because the experience has changed me forever. It is irreversible. I guess all experiences are;those that count anyway.

Wow it is already March !!1

Just a little nature in the city.
I can't believe it has been so long since I have been away. I hope someone still knows I am here???

My year has started with a bang. Lots of travel in the year, new and cool people met, new contacts, new job potentials, new endeavors, and new furniture. What more can there be in the first two months of the year.

Well, there is still the old shit too, but that gets spread nice and thin when there is a lot of new good stuff to smear it. I am feeling a little graphic today I see.

Well, this is a short note to say I will be writing soon.

Holiday HOHO

I have to blog!!! I need to blog!! …well no not really. However, I have an anecdote.

S and I were out for a much needed sanity break from life. We were having a lovely chat and food and were heading to the theatre to see what all the poop was about with Casino Royale. I am not a fan of the ‘new’ guy, but people have continued to hound me not to make a rash decision and see it before I make up my mind.

So I went, but I digress.

Where was I? Oh yes. S and I were on our way over to the theatre. As we were crossing a crosswalk, a car comes down the road. It was a little too fast for my liking, and didn’t really wait for us to get across the road. S and I could have easily been clipped. Well, we could have...

“What is so strange?” you may ask. “In Calgary that happens consistently.” Well, I have to point out to give the complete impact of this that I walk with a cane. In the winter, I walk slowly (well always slowly, but in winter more slowly…almost backwards).

This car had a DISABLED placard in the window. Call me bizarre, but does anyone else see the irony in this?
Ahh the Holidays! Bringing out the vindictive and ill mannered in all of us.
I am not a scrooge, but this time of year is difficult in so many ways.

SO, I wish all of you in Blog land, a very peaceful, restful, fun holiday, and enough booze not to kill your relatives.

Happy Holidays!!!!
