Musings & Thoughts for Thursday, December 8, 2022, or: Anxiety + Change = Tired, Stressed-Out Blogger


It’s afternoon here in Lithia, Florida, on Thursday, December 8, 2022. It is a lovely early winter day; it’s so nice outside that if I weren’t so drag-assed tired, I’d go out for a walk and read a book on one of the benches at the nearby park. Unfortunately, I woke up too early –Continue reading “Musings & Thoughts for Thursday, December 8, 2022, or: Anxiety + Change = Tired, Stressed-Out Blogger”

Monday, Monday Another Monday, another business week. Hi, there, Dear Reader.

More Musings & Thoughts for Thursday, December 1, 2022, or: To Walk or Not to Walk, Revisited (and Some Cool Historical Shit I’ve Learned!)


Much Ado About…Not Going Outside So, this is what happened. After I published Musings & Thoughts for Thursday, December 1, 2022, or: A Quick Update from Lovely Lithia, I took a shower, got dressed, put on my walking shoes, then walked to the kitchenette, where “The Caregiver” had served me lunch: some Sydney Shrooms[1] thatContinue reading “More Musings & Thoughts for Thursday, December 1, 2022, or: To Walk or Not to Walk, Revisited (and Some Cool Historical Shit I’ve Learned!)”

Musings & Thoughts for Wednesday, November 30, 2022, or: A Tale of a Brief – and I Do Mean Brief – Stroll


Today is Wednesday, November 30, 2022, the last day of the next-to-the-last month of the year. It’s also the last day of meteorological autumn, which is a better seasonal gauge (in my mind, anyway) than the traditional astronomical calendar reckonings based on solstices and equinoxes. Tomorrow, a new month and a new season will begin,Continue reading “Musings & Thoughts for Wednesday, November 30, 2022, or: A Tale of a Brief – and I Do Mean Brief – Stroll”
