Back to Life, Back to Reality

As things were getting a little hectic chez moi, I took some time off for myself to decompress and chill out. It was nice while it lasted—I met some amazing people, had a lot of laughs, did a lot of soul-searching, drank a lot of coffee and smoked a lot of cigarettes (nasty habit that, I plan to quit once stuff is in order)—but alas, it came time to return to the real world.

Now I am back home and ready to go but there are so many things I want to do, but overachieving, overthinking, overanalyzing, and overdoing will do me no good.

So I’m going to take this day to relax and hang with Sarge for a bit, drink some cold diet
Coke, and get my new BlackBerry up and running.

Look at this sweet little furry guy!

But tomorrow it’s time to get down to brass tacks and get moving. And boy oh boy, there’s a lot I’m looking forward to doing but one thing at a time, right? I’m going to try my hand at creating some new types of art, and need to get back to crafting. But again, one thing at a time, one day at a time.

Many, many thanks to Judy, Stephanie, Joanne, Mary, Andrew, Scarlett, Amanda, Bernard, Mark and John I. for helping me dig deeper to connect the dots, reconnect with and center myself, and continue on this thing called life. Thanks to everyone else there who made my retreat as pleasant as could be.

Huge HUGE hugs and kisses to the wonderful men and women I met on this stage of my personal journey (in no particular order): Claire, Brenda, Meg, Heather, Charlie, Matthew, Patty, Courtney, Sherry, Jen J., Cruise Director Julie, Julie-from-Maryland, the-other-Jen, the list goes on. Thank you for all the laughs, fun times, and incredible conversations, and thank you for honoring me with your trust.

I firmly believe that blasting Prince tunes at top volume helps cure all ills, so here you go:
