On Track

I knocked out a half a million things on my to-do list today.  Sweet. I started this morning with a nice 10 through the humid countryside that sweated off 1.5 lbs.  Too bad it was just water loss.  There was a time not so very long ago when 10 miles seemed like a walk in the park, but in this heat and humidity, and … Read More On Track


I assumed my appropriate position on the porch this evening with the usual accessories.  After a couple of rounds of Candy Crush Saga, I just sat back and cried because I’m so fucking happy.  I’m telling you, it’s getting serious, this happiness thing.  Damn. I don’t quite know what to do with it all.  I’m losing the battle to a voracious appetite lately, and … Read More Intoxicated

Show Me

I wonder if one day I’ll look back on this period of my life and forget how it felt to be this happy, or if this is going to be a permanent new norm.  I suspect that once you’ve lived in Love, you just stay there – forever – no matter what, and that you maintain a connection with the persons, places and things … Read More Show Me

I Must Run

Smiling and bright.  Happy heart.   It was Holy Arm Day.   I started the day off about an hour after dawn with a short run through the neighborhood.  The air was cool, comparatively speaking, and I felt very good with both my wind and my turnover.  Morning runs are my favorite, for sure.  I could hear the birds causing a racket above my … Read More I Must Run

Little Things

Have you ever felt so incredibly happy that it scared you just a little?  I don’t feel like I’m on a high, necessarily – it’s just a consistent, underlying glow that’s warming me up from the inside out.  It’s the little things, I think, that are keeping me smiling and content and worry-free about the big things.  And it’s such a divine way to … Read More Little Things

I Like Happy

Well, things are almost back to normal around here.  I’m typing up a late evening post, and I can’t believe tomorrow is a regular Monday and I’ll be shuffling off to work with the rest of the world.  I think this was the first full week I’ve taken off since last August, and I feel like I traveled to another country. I ran in … Read More I Like Happy

Evening Song

The moon is big and beautiful tonight.  I’m in my favorite summer spot, rocking on my front porch and sipping Columbia Crest Chardonnay.  And I’m happy.   My guests are gone, and nothing remains of the week’s stress but some trace evidence of a celebration and some extra dirty towels in my bathroom.  The neighborhood is relaxed, too, with strains of “Happy Birthday” floating … Read More Evening Song
