My Evil Hitchhiker

Awakened From a Nightmare
March 11, 2013

Here it is a new year and I have finally returned from a five-month absence.

My odyssey began on Oct. 21, when I made a rookie mistake while riding my new bike. A car cut me off in traffic and I grabbed the front brake in a panic and went down in traffic badly breaking my left leg.

Angels on Loan From Heaven
October 31, 2012

I have been not-so-skillfully surfing the rough seas of depression these past weeks. The loss of my very best friend (for some reason that remains unexplained) has really put me off my game and cut into my heart.

I'll trust that you'll bear with me through this process ... I'm a beginner at all this.

Tiptoe Through My Treasures
June 8, 2012

So, I think everyone, no matter their age or financial or health status has a little box or knitting case or, as in my case, an actual case (the kind used by make-up artists or home-care workers with the trays that pull up and out to display their contents) that contains various odds and ends that define their lives and time on earth. A bit of a time capsule with a small portal to the past.

A Journey of a Thousand Miles ...
May 18, 2012

Like so many others who blog or journal about living with HIV, I think my expectations are to build a network of people who can benefit by my experiences and who can offer me a sounding board for some of the problems I'm dealing with.
