In all reality, life is pretty good. Yes, I work lots to pay the bills, but I pay them. I have not defaulted on any, and don't plan on that... ever.

I have a very secure job with a decent pension plan, and a half-assed health benefits package, but I don't get sick much so it does what I need at this point.

I have some great friends. I have a fantastic family. I am (for the most part) healthy and active. Yeah, I have aches and pains from aging and past injuries that plague me, but nothing debilitating to the point of not being able to carry life as if I were (sort of) normal.

Hey, I have never professed to be normal... that sounds much too boring , in my mind. I'd rather be thought of as quite pleasant but slightly eccentric...

I've made friends with people all around the world through the Ethernet, and although I tell myself I spend way too much time in front of the computer, it is something I enjoy and is, in a small way, mildly productive. I certainly don't fritter away hours playing games online. I have cut back on my online time and am happy with the balance in my life.

And someone from the not too distant past is re-entering the present. Who knows where that will lead? I'm quite happy to find out.


  1. you are one of the best, sugar! i can't wait for the next update because brother map is right: intriguing! xoxox

  2. My only regret about the internet is that it has severely cut the amount of time I spend reading books. I wish that hadn't happened and I'm trying to get that back.

  3. Map and Savannah: ;-) xoxoxo!!!

    XL: Yes, it is rather boring, isn't it? Highly overrated...

    UB: I have found that life in general has cut into my reading time and like you, I am trying to get some of it back... with a bit of success too.

  4. Andrea: Thanks! It was time for a change. :-)

  5. I'm beginning to understand the concept of "Life is what you make it".

    I just need to figure out how to make more TIME for what I want to make it. :)

  6. I'm intrigued by who this might be. Whoever it is, I hope it brings happiness. Or good gossip at least.

  7. All: No further comments on who until there is a better understanding of how it is going... much too early for that! So you'll all just have to sit on pins and needles until I pipe up once again. ;-)

  8. What a smile for the slightly eccentric Ponita! A great new blog look, a lot of positive vibes, and perhaps an old potential lover returns.

    Sometimes, life is downright good.


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
