Strumming My Pain With His Fingers

My melody maker, my sweet soul shaker – he finds the harmonies that reverberate within me. The lyricist who reaches into his own depths and forms verses that delight my heart and lift my spirits. He strums the chords, they strike the right note, I hold my breath waiting as he pauses, and then… It […]

While I Was Sleeping #7

To help me preserve my emotional health while my physical health is failing, Ben asked me to spend time… …thinking about all of the things that make me smile, make me happy. He recommended trying to think of things I can enjoy now, even though I am ill, but also things that have added meaning […]

For three years, Ben and I were based in a little house in a little village, not much bigger than a hamlet really. But in November we moved. Due to my deteriorating health, we are unable to travel back to Chicago. Instead, we are going to be remaining here in the UK, while I continue […]

Dark Nights And London Lights

Where do I even begin? Maybe I should go back to my short and not at all sweet (more sour than anything) time in New York. It was the first time in my life I faced what I can only describe as a crisis. It was not that something traumatic happened while I was in […]

What Would I Do Without Noo?

I have a lot of “stuff” that I need to let go of at some point. But sorting through my personal things is a little overwhelming. Thank goodness for the incredible Noo.

Saucy Secrets

I have some very close and trusted female friends who I would share almost anything with – except, for salacious saucy secrets. However, with a lover….isn’t it funny how things you would not dare tell anyone slip out. It shows the level of trust within an intimate sexual relationship. You cannot really give your all […]

My Hero

You’ve been my rock in the wilderness of WordPress. You’ve been my hero, my knight in shining armour, my Clarke Kent who is ever ready to save me. You have been a source of great strength to me and I have felt safe and comforted by your presence. I know I am not the only […]
