May you never have to cry out in pain?

While navigating your life’s mundane…

And if you do I hope those who’re dear

Come running from places far and near

To guide you past agony and frustration

Of injuries present without explanation

I wish you sweet, gentle, speedy healing

This part of aging is less than appealing

Tiptoeing Through the Tulips


Every conversation with you is a test.

A tricky exam with multiple choice answers designed to trip up all but the savviest applicant.

Like an H.R. pro, your analysis hidden, and your poker voice perky and appropriate…

Your relationship hopeful never sees the ax coming until their severed head watches its body falling as it’s rolling across the floor.

Processing…Please Wait :)


I process things much slower than most people, feel emotions deeply, experience stimuli more acutely and with greater intensity. This makes life exceedingly difficult and amazingly awesome in equal measure.

It is challenging to explain to others what I am just getting a grasp on myself.

I didn’t always have the words.

In a world that requires multi-tasking, thinking on the fly, and quick appropriate replies, I have accepted that I must navigate it on a sort of conditioned response auto pilot.

But if I’m honest… sometimes I just wish I could hold up a sign that says

“Processing…Please Wait :)”
