Within the pages of my journal you will find mostly rants and commentary on topics of concern to me. Currently, those would include the illegal occupation of Iraq, human rights, the threat of theocracy, and the U. S. Presidency of Barack Obama.

If these things interest you as well, read on. If you wish to engage in attack debate, simply move on. I won't respond to you. If you are interested in honest debate, and have an open mind, then I welcome you.

Oh, and one more thing. I believe Bush 43 was the worst president ever to hold that office in the history of the United States. I am unashamed of that opinion.

If your actions harm no one, then they are ethical. The reverse is not necessarily true.

It's been six months, and I'm feeling philosophical

Current Mood: sleep deprived sleep deprived

Won't you join me? Seriously, an open invitation for telling me where you think I am wrong. Can you honestly pass that up?

And more about how I’ve been doing

Tags: ,
location: Home in 77095
Current Mood: lonely lonely

I've had a rough few weeks. Honestly, having the family here hasn't been nearly as helpful as I hoped. Yes, it stopped me from choosing to follow Barbara in the first couple of months, but I still feel so alone I can barely stand it. I guess I am going to feel alone in a crowd, no matter how big that crowd, for a very long time.

I survived

location: 77095
Current Mood: depressed depressed

I made it through my first holiday as a widow. I baked bread (by hand), and gave a share to Lugh, as appropriate. The bread was good.

But by the Gods, I miss her.

Facebook "memorialized" Barbara's account overnight

location: my home office
Current Mood: depressed depressed

What does memorializing an account mean? Does it deactivate or delete it?

When a user passes away, we memorialize their account to protect their privacy. Memorializing an account removes certain sensitive information (e.g., status updates and contact information) and sets privacy so that only confirmed friends can see the profile or locate it in search. The Wall remains so that friends and family can leave posts in remembrance. Memorializing an account also prevents all login access to it.
Yet another in a long list of unpleasant reminders that come unexpectedly.

People worry about me?

People worry about me. That is such a foreign concept to me. Continue reading →

Save the date

Current Mood: melancholy melancholy

No, it's not certain yet, and I don't have a location. That said, if you want to attend the Pagan service for Barbara, I would strongly recommend that you hold 25-July open. It's a full moon and a Sunday.Read more... )
