Karma Schmarma

It's been a trying week, a very hard week.

But you know what? Once again, the amazing network of friends that I've been blessed with has come through for me in unexpected ways. No one makes it through alone. You might like to think you're a one woman show, but the fact is that there are other women holding you up. And for that, I am thankful.

"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."

A Word on Alter Egos

Yesterday after a particularly bad day, I was driving my safe, German car, with the Sinatra station on. With the A/C on, no less.
A woman on a motorcycle whizzed by my left, swung into the turn lane, then took off. At that moment, I wanted that. The wind, the speed, the freedom and release. I've always been a fan of Rose is Rose. Rose is a momma, she takes care of her family, but deep inside she's a hard core rebel.
Maybe it's time to let my own alter ego out for a while. Sometimes you need to dig deep and let another facet of yourself out. What good is having a wild side if you never let it free?
