Most of us have heard of FWB's
and I'm betting a few of you
actually have one (or two?? lol)
Out of the blue, someone
contacted me the other day,
said we'd met long ago
and he still had my number
in his phone
and was I looking for a FWB?
We flirted back and forth
-- briefly --
but it seemed clear that he was
looking for some of the 'benefits'
before we even became friends.
Do I have this backwards?
its Friends -- with benefits.
which implies to me that the sex is a bonus to the friendship.
Since FWB doesn't work for me
we laughed about it when I declined.....
I'm betting he was sure of my answer
before he even asked the question!!
Good Sunnnnday morning!
I got up today thinking "aha!!
sunshine-y beautiful morning
i should be able to get something...."
and while I took a few,
I'm not pleased.
well. The photos are OK.
but to me they just look
over and over again.
Although I found the shadows
to be more fun than selfies. :)
I am trying to be more
photographer than model
and training my eye to be on
the watch for things that
while they may register on
our horizon, we don't actually take the time to stop and
process what we're seeing.
How many of us walk right
over the top of a manhole cover
and yes, we know its there.
yes, we know it says something on it.
but what? does it register?
have you noticed if there is just
lettering? or is there a city seal?
Just an example of how we let
the simple things slip past us,
while we worry about things
that aren't in the present moment.
Whenever I've been out of town,
the weekend after I return,
I get a lot of this:
Sadie at my feet
at every turn.
Like a 4 year old
who can't stop asking questions
Sadie seems to ask,
"You're not leaving me again, are you ?"
Not feeling very inspired lately
when it comes to selfies ....
and I fear this is turning into
"just another nudie blog"
and there's plenty of that.
lots of introspection lately, so I'll leave
you with the following thought:
"T h i s m o m e n t i s e x a c t l y a s i t s h o u l d b e .
W h a t e v e r r e l a t i o n s h i p s y o u h a v e a t t r a c t e d

I haven't posted in a while
my feet and i have done some
traveling ... there's nothing like
a good vacation to bring you back
to where you want to be, yes?
Life is good and relaxing for the
moment, and that's just how i like it!
I took an early morning walk through this grove of trees....
i haven't had a haircut since last March,
until today. i had been putting it off,
telling myself i could just pop into one
of those little shops where you walk in,
they spritz your hair and trim it up.
i just couldn't do it.
i've been seeing Erin for 6 years now,
and i guess i'm a little vain - i only trust
her with my hair! that's just plain silly!
Or it is?
i don't have many vices, or spend money
on myself in fanciful foolish ways. Except
for my hair. Its been my one indulgence
now that my kids are grown, and i should
be able to afford a little extra for myself!
but i'm also practical, and could make a
long list of dozens of uses for that money
spent on things more necessary than
so i'm going to allow myself this little bit
of luxury and go with what my fav author
“if you want your life to come together, you have to start treating yourself better.”
