21 page views. Yesterday. 

On a blog that, for lack of a better word, has stagnated for the last two years. I have an overwhelming urge to thank you - thank you for continuing to check in, continuing to visit to see if anything is going on here at DBM.

I am finding not just writing but life in general to be too much right now. I am struggling under a blanket of responsibility; uh - not a blanket, a thick, heavy, 7-layer grandma quilt of smothering responsibility that is making everything I do take a lot of effort.

I've talked before about my problems with depression and brain fog and troubles with actually coping with life & all its foibles & challenges. Right now it is not the worst of my life, but it's pretty bad. I have once again taken on too much and am suffering from the effects. But the 21 page views really brightened my day.  So thank you. Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for giving me incentive to continue. Thank you.

Today, This Week, & Always, I Remember

This image is not mine. I saw it on a friend's FB page, & am trying to track down its origins. 
So profound!

First Snow Day

November 2nd - that's pretty damn good for west-central Saskatchewan! 

A heavy, wet snow that forms snowballs without much effort. If the temperature stays as warm as it is today, it should be gone in a few days.

Damn This Memory Of Mine!

I'm just going to put this out there: I love writing {duh!  That's why you have a blog, silly!}
Mkay, yes, that is an obvious thing to say.  But I really do love writing.  I love creating with words, making images that people can see if they close their eyes.  It makes me happy when I get the phrasing JUST RIGHT, when my words convey exactly what I'm thinking and feeling. 

& as much as I love writing, I love reading good writing.  LOVE. IT.  I follow a few blogs, not as many as when I started cuz some have become defunct, or disappeared, or been made private & I wasn't invited to the party {sob!}, & all of those blogs fed my writing soul with lovely morsels of words & phrases & stories; there are some amazingly talented people out here on the interweb!

One such writer had a blog about her fight with infertility.  I loved her writing.  It was poignant & sweet & her emotions came through with such clarity!  She, luckily, had 2 children & transformed her blog from living with infertility to living.  It was a great moment for her when she renamed, rebranded her space her in interspace.  

I enjoyed reading that blog! & be damned if I can remember what the hell it was called.  I can't even remember her user name. 

If this sounds at all familiar to anyone, please let me know?  I want to reconnect.
