Keeping It Real, Enjoying Tremendous Benefits......... 10/5/15

      I am in San Fran-cisco, sitting in the waiting room of Kaiser hospital on Geary Blvd.

     Exhausted, the past two weeks I have been.  My emotions have been on full tilt, taxed by

Comfortable With Life and All of Its Circumstances, Not Hindered by Fear 10/4/15

       Be forewarned, I'm dictating this post using my smart-phone. My laptop gave up its life.

     Life is fantastically good, getting better almost daily.  I spoke with someone not long ago, tonight.  As I talked, I was

Celebrating a More Fragile and Happier Life................. 10/3/15

       I am lucking out, right now. My laptop is broken. Again.  Dead all day, it was. For forty-five minutes, just now, I fiddled with the power cord, trying to get it to work, to get this post in, while it lay on the kitchen table. No luck. The computer refused my efforts at

Transforming Like a Butterfly....... 9/27/15

I thought it has been overdue, showing you a
view from one of the inn's windows. Nice, huh?
        I am not the me I was a week ago.

        Nor am I like I was two days ago. Certainly, I am not the Pablo that exis-ted a month or two ago. All has transpi-red for the better.  I am more relaxed. And I was already extremely

Survey of Highs and Lows for the Week................. 9/26/15

4.  I was privileged to

Overcoming a Visit From a Ghost of the Past................ 9/17/15

         Nine days ago it happened.

        The circumstances were a long time in appearing.  The tension that came with it, the sick, empty feeling in my stomach soured the evening.  At least, initially, until I took care of myself, shutting things down. The feelings I had was the return of a companion who hadn't

Life is Getting Better, Relationally and Physically 9/9/15

        So much to say.  Not enough time or alertness at this hour to record my observations.  Over two hundred miles driven, left-handedly today.   Just returned from Sacramento.  Getting training there.

        For the Labor Day holiday on Monday, I went to Great America amusement park.  For those not in the know, it has many rides of the roller coaster nature.  It was hot down there, in Santa Clara and a trip

Sources of Joy, Part II................ 9/4/15

Not Stuart and me.  But you get the idea.
     Leaving gratitudes tonight.  I'll re-write this tomorrow.  Check out the previous post. I overhauled it, revamping what was there.

1.  For my friend Stuart.  He's coaching me, helping me as I relate with others.  I appreciate his loving support.  And his humor, even though it aggravates me when I am in an intense mood.  He knows I need
