My First Post from FB

Me and My Man-He's on the Left

Too Much Talking. Too much Typing.

I took a break from FB for awhile for several reasons. And, I really didn't miss it. Now, don't get me wrong, I thrive on all things posted that make me go "LOL" and "WTF" and "awesomesauce." What I DID miss were the PEOPLE. I was simply exhausted and being clever online is an exhausting full-time job. I gave up my REAL-life job to recuperate mostly from an illness that went simply from manageable to acute in a span of a few short months. Then I returned...<TADA!> and am slowly getting my strength back, but my tolerance for long-winded embroilments isn't as hearty as it once was.

 Maybe I should take up drinking again. (Update: I did)

More Typing. More Talking.

I do have a life outside of FB. Not much of one, but it's real and it's mine.

And, YOU see much of it right here online.

There are some things I hold sacred.

My husband, for one. (Yes! I do have one.) And, our family, which includes Roz. And, yes, we're married. No, we don't have a piece of paper from a city hall somewhere stating such, but, trust, we are very much each one half of the other. To have, to hold, to laugh. In sickness and in health, and trust, he has loved me through more sickness in the last few months than health. He was watching me die. And it hurt him deeply to feel so helpless.

So, while we all get embroiled in the politics of the day and squabble over word choice and what should be civil rights for ALL, I am liberating the word "marriage" from the naysayers. I'm not going to add "gay" or "same-sex" to it, I'm just going to live it and relish all the joy it brings.

[Pause for you to check to see if your marriage is still intact.]

It is?


More Talking. More Typing

*I live in America and I am still afraid to press <post> because the fear remains.
