Since last Christmas, I've calculated having only spent 5 nights in my bedroom...in my parents' house.  The bedroom that I claimed as a 4-year old and lived in until moving to Columbus 3.5 years ago.  The bedroom that my parents still referred to as "your room".  (I know, they miss me.)  So saying I was anxious about returning to Pittsburgh … Continue reading when we see each other time doesn’t matter. each time we see each other, it’s wonderful.

all my life i’ve tried, to make everybody happy while i, just hurt, and hide, waiting for someone to tell me it’s my turn to decide.

As 2010 began I made a pact, witnessed by Adriana, that I was going to dedicate the year to me, myself, and I.  In a crowded bar, in the hopping neighborhood of Lincoln Park (Chicago, IL), I set out to make 2010: My Year.  Declaring it as "My Year" simply meant that, for once in my … Continue reading all my life i’ve tried, to make everybody happy while i, just hurt, and hide, waiting for someone to tell me it’s my turn to decide.

those sweet words

Sticks and Stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.  We all know these words very well as they were first spoken as a lesson to be learned from our parents, grandparents, and/or teachers.  As kids we fought off mean words could only be cured with a plate of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies and chocolate milk.  As … Continue reading those sweet words

at the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

Leo Buscaglia said, "The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be."  He also said that "we all need each other" and to "never idealize others...they will never live up to your expectations."  So which is it, Leo?  What's the secret … Continue reading at the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

I'm going to take a break from the June series to address some of the things that have been going on with me this week.  I'm sure you don't mind not reading about my past recollections; however, I can promise you that there will be a few more posts in the coming days/weeks.

whatever happened to me; whatever happened to you.

It's been a Norah Jones-kind of night for me.  I've been listened to some of her songs and even thought about watching My Blueberry Nights.  If you haven't seen it, I recommend it.  It's a simple pleasure of mine, with Natalie Portman and Jude Law along with Ms. Jones as the main character.  It's nowhere … Continue reading whatever happened to me; whatever happened to you.
