Midnight Wild Child Gypsy Dreamer: The Middle

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt, It lies behind stars and under hills, And empty holes it fills, It comes first and follows after, Ends life, kills laughter. – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit Tuning out the voices was easier than I ever imagined it to be.  I decided…

Midnight Wild Child Gypsy Dreamer: The Beginning 

I know it’s been quite a bit of time since I wrote on here.  I wish I could have been able to take you with me on the journey that I’ve been doing, but putting it into words and seeing it on paper seemed impossible to handle.  A lot has changed for me in the…

Beachy Days and Just Short of a Decade

Now that we are almost two months through surgery recovery and lifestyle changes I can report that even though it has gotten easier it has not gotten any less annoying.  I am two months sober from alcohol, tylenol, and several other medications that could have aided in my allergy fest that I had experienced earlier…

First Breakdown

It’s happened. One month in and I’ve used the Roadside Assistance button on my Progressive Auto-Insurance app. Buying a Vanagon that’s older than me was always going to yield breakdowns and stalls. You don’t go into #vanlife thinking that it’s always going to be smooth sailing. I will admit I thought it’d be a little…

Morphine Rambles

Let me take you back to something that I wrote while laying in the hospital bed waiting for my gallbladder to be removed.  I was connected to a Morphine drip in order to dull the pain and news that the  doctors were unsure if I could make it to surgery in time before my gallbladder…

Snow Birds

I have been experiencing an extreme overwhelming feeling of insecurity and self doubt.  I guess that they are both one in the same, but I can not explain how this feeling has crept up on me or even why.  I can think of a few changes in my life that have occurred over the past few…

Foggy Disaster

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday weekend!  I know that we enjoyed ours!  Thanksgiving means counting down to all our December events!  My birthday is on the 6th, the twins on the 12th, and then we prepare for Christmas!  We also have a Girl Scout ceremony and a parade to be apart…

Wrapped up in Themselves – Part 4

Years had passed and that young 16 year old girl had found me through the advancements of social media.  She wanted to reach out to me and apologize for lying to her parents about that night.  She stated that she was too afraid to tell them that she willingly had sex and saying she was forced…

Wrapped up in Themselves: Part 2

At the time I was a smoker.  I spent most of my time at the party sitting on the back patio with a cigarette and beer in my hand.  I didn’t dance so you didn’t catch me in the main rooms of the house.  I was only lured inside because a boy that I began…
