I Love Your Words

What will [he] say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of [London], just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.

Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, valuable, but small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So goodnight, dear void.

The odd thing about this form of communication is you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many… somethings. So, thanks.

This is so romantic and longing and sweet and quietly sad and yet uplifting. So many feels. I love that line about throwing it out into the void and not needing and answer.

Everyone has different levels of brave. Maybe you’re not giving I’m yourself enough credit. Doesn’t have to be big to be great.

OMG….thanks…I’m so dumb…

I generally try to always read the instructions. But I forget to read the footnotes.

That was my attempt at humor. I’ve seen and read your writing. You are actually very adept. That whole slut persona is just one part of you…. and I can never get the exact sense of it but I enjoy your writings about your life a lot.


Well…she does it well. Or is that you’re writing? Your blog makes MUCH more sense no that I know it’s a collaboration.

I think she’d understand my comment. But I’m not offended. I think she knows I was totally kidding and also not giving her permission to hate on herself


Good morning PG3
Ben explained to me this morning that he had deleted a comment. That is not unusual for him, He has been deleting comments he did not like since I started my blog. I have called him my PR Manager.
Ben does not write any of my posts, that’s all my waffle. But he has removed some bloggers who he was uncomfortable with. Mostly male bloggers who were being over-familiar.
He has always been protective of me, but perhaps he is being more so now. Which I do love.
Yesterday was the first time in weeks I felt I had the energy to respond to comments on my blog. I have my last radiotherapy session tomorrow, and it’s a good feeling to know I wont have to make that journey anymore.


Oh wow….

That’s awesome on so many fronts. Good to have someone that loves you that much. Good to be spiraling in a good direction with your health. I thought you’d understand. And I am so glad you clarified that. I thought it was your voice in the blog. But we could all use a watchful gaze over us . 🥰
