If I don't have you I don't want nobody baby

My life has become full of pills, & not just for pain. Vitamins, bone loss, arthritis/inflammation, etc. On days like today when the pain won't go away & ice has been on for hours, a steam roller & a handful of pills doesn't seem like enough.

It's in the fine print.

Chalky mess everywhere

Please work

48 years

My parents celebrated 48 years of marriage yesterday. 48 years...myself having turned 40 this year I'm amazed to think of such a commitment & faithfulness that is rarely really seen anymore. They will go out & eat at their favorite little seafood place on the pier, a humble little cheap, fantastic representation of genuine good food over the Gulf of Mexico. It's a perfect place to represent them-honest, loyal, quirky, gorgeous, & fantastic. Taking the best of 2 different worlds & combining them into something that takes work, gets blown down by hurricanes, yet stands up & rebuilds as needed. Happy anniversary mom & dad! I love you both so much.

Catching the Bokeh

After joining Flickr, I learned about bokeh-the cool little blurs that can happen accidentally or on purpose. Only having a cell camera I have to use apps & an orange aspirin to make my own-& my tongue ;)

Bunnies on ice

After yesterday's neuro appt, Chai bunny played & posed while I iced my wounds.

The heat was on

Driving to my neurologist's NICE new office about an hour away is a gorgeous drive, but not fun bumping all over after needles have plunged into one's spine. Driving over:

Rewarded with a route 44 Sonic diet coke (which I only drink on special occasions) with lime

After the drive home I just wanted to curl up and use the fresh lime wedges as pillows

Whiplash morrow

Very, very, very nervous about the neurologist tomorrow. :(

Legend of my fall

I'm very clumsy-many people with fibromyalgia tend to have sketchy balance, run into things like door frames even though it looks like they are centered correctly, & fall pretty often. In 5 days I've fallen 3 times. The 1st 2 were pretty standard, but this morning I fell & it was as if my body was paralyzed. Normally your arms/hands reach out, as reflexes should, to instinctively protect yourself, but I fell as if I was planking. I landed like a cartoon character directly on my face, right in Chai bunny's food pellets. She bolted over, started licking me & gently tugging on my shirt & slippers to try & get me up. She's used to me falling, but I think even she sensed it was different. My right shoulder somehow landed next, on a heavy glass mug I use to dip out her food, followed by my knee & foot. My neck & arm are so sore, & I even have hip/bum bruises to show & tell! My neurology appointment is Monday, & I'll be having another brain & back MRI to check again for MS, etc. Cannot type anymore, so here are the pics.

Chai bunny had her bunny Poppy (later on) on top of her fav magazine to eat, with a pair of my panties she dragged off a clean clothes pile & the t-shirt I was wearing that was covered in her food pellets. She is divinely sweet!

I miss album covers

I love record stores. Those great works of art in huge canvases. Doing a poor job, I give you a few.

I really need a cigarette


Rip. My sweet Elliott.

I'm swooning

Nicer guy you'll NEVER meet

Yes please!


If you don't know them, really? Sad...



Right. On. Free the Memphis 3!

Dust & ashes

Sick of the old.

A few days before I got sick-pic taken. Classic me-vegan combat boots, Indonesian fav necklace, orange patchwork skirt. Holding a globe-full of all those continuing travels & dreams

So stupid to think I'd be ok. That even with fibromyalgia, I'd survive

First hit & the sparks of me start to escape

My colors escape

& I'm off to dust
