Forgive me oh my powerful and patient Muse for I have sinned.
I started goofing off on Facebook again.
And at about that time I stopped writing.
But I won’t pussyfoot around.
I stopped writing just before the holidays because I was tired.
Over the last year the Grim Reaper knocked on so many doors around me- a friend, a few of my relatives and my dog.
That’s right. My dog.
Losing my dog Domino was the last freaking straw.
I quit the human race.
And now I’m sort of back.
I guess when you go on a journey- good or bad you learn a lot of stories, you meet people, you taste new foods, hear new music.
You might not care a rat’s ass at that particular moment but that’s what happens.
So tonight when my friends and I went into mourning because the Seahawks didn’t win their second Superbowl in a row I slapped myself upside the head and thought:
” Really Anita? After all the loss and sadness you’ve been through you’re going to mourn for this? The Hawks are awesome- they’re going to come back.
So let’s tally it up shall we? Your Dad, your cousin, your friend will not be coming back. Let’s keep the tally going from the previous sucky years: your nephew…gone…your cat…gone…your girlish figure….long gone.
So how’s about looking at it this way- suck it up, chalk this screwed up year as a life lesson and let’s soldier on shall we?
Because at the end of the day that’s what you have to do.

Well said! Keep strong.
Great perspective! Keep soldiering own! I’m definitely going to try too. 🙂
I’ll be checking in on your blog too- and I hope you make it! Fingers crossed for us both.
Boy, do I ever hear you on this one. I am still struggling to find my voice again after two years of life dumping one big bad after another on me and mine. Keep on truckin’ Anita Marie. I’m in your corner, too.
Thank you Jane!
Jane, I miss reading your work too. I hope you can get back in the saddle too.
I go through this every few months too. Glad to hear your voice again.
The Hawks seem to do best when they have that shoulder chip going on, When things are bad they use it to an advantage. Maybe there are lessons in pain – but it still sucks.
This is a great post Anita. I love your searing, heartfelt honesty here – definitely a come back and definitely coming back stronger than. Great image too – it illustrates your thoughts perfectly.
