In response to Zoomers Writer's Wednesday- "Voices"
I awoke from a deep medicated sleep by voices laughing behind the hospital curtain. The nurses were chatting at their desk and I silently wondered if I knew any of them that…Continue
The people in the public relations industry aren't there for the fun of it. They're doing work. They're trying to instill the right values. In fact, they have a conception of what democracy ought to be: It ought to be a system in which the specialized class is trained to work in the service of the masters, the…Continue

Seriously what is my problem, since moving from a 1300 square foot house to this tiny apartment in August of last year, I have had no energy what so ever. Every day is struggle with me. Its getting worse each day. I have no get up and go, no motivation, things I use to do for entertainment just bore the heck out of me. I would much rather sleep, become one with the couch or the bed then do anything else.
I know that my mental illness's can be a major factor in the way I'm…Continue

The first thing that will contribute to reaching your goal is that you simply want to reach it badly enough. You must learn how to desire with sufficient intensity to be successful.
If you have the desire you have the power to attain success. You can really have anything you want in life if you go after it. But you have to want it.

shipwrecked person craves fresh water, so must you feel that intense,…

Little do they realize what we cats get up to at night. Those rescue volunteers who feed me and clean this place think they're the only ones who ever get out. Those kindhearted folks never wonder why we cats sleep all day high in our cat trees, only coming down for the canned food and the box. They must think we're the laziest creatures in the world!
When I was in physical therapy, Young PT gave me a list of exercises, complete with pictures, and asked if I was willing to do them every day. He sounded bored, like he asks everybody this question and is ready for an argument.…Continue
Yesterday my daughter, Erin and I were driving to an appointment. We were in the right lane following an expensive looking black car which was traveling at a snails pace.

There was no way I could go around him to escape the…Continue

A lone male voice tweeted today that he was sad that Adele's singing voice did not match her speech and I had to agree. I keep wondering why Adele is becoming less appealing the more I see of her. As I watched the Grammys two weeks ago I heard acceptance speech after acceptance speech consisting of her working class accent that was similar to a fingernail scraping a blackboard. After I saw her interview on 60 minutes she went from the voice of an angel to a very common, foul mouthed and…Continue
