Something should be said…

by Rebecca

I enjoy dining out. Within the last month or so, I’ve gone out for dinner twice. Both times with people I love very much. Each time, I’ve enjoyed engaging, stimulating conversation, witty exchanges, much laughter and connection. We sat close, leaned in closer, when something was said that required more concentrated attention. The food was excellent, the company […]

Drive.

by Rebecca

So lately, I’ve been blogging on about this wonderful woman I’m in love with. I think it’s important to share what you love with others. I have done this with my art, with my dogs, with books I love; with music, and movies, and, obviously, depending on the individual, women. I love many things, in […]

Politics be damned

by Rebecca

I am not a political person. I do not engage in political discussions, I do not pretend to understand politics, I pay the barest attention to politics, period. Having said that, I do actually pay attention. I am certainly aware of the political disparity between my country and the country right next door. Living in […]

It pays to pay close attention

by Rebecca

Today was a hugely emotional day. I was wired from the get-go. My voice, as it does when I’m excited, was several octaves above my normal low key pitch. I felt energized, I wanted to dance, to throw my arms wide and toss my head back and sing (I did these things later on, trust […]

Picture perfect

by Rebecca

“So what were you thinking, when you decided to send that picture to me?” I ask. We’ve been on the phone for an hour, before I finally ask this question. But it’s a question that’s been on my mind since she sent it. It was for my birthday, part of a package she’d sent that […]

Lilac bliss

by Rebecca

Lilac bushes line one full side of the yard where I now live. Lilac bushes, some of which are now in full bloom, some of which still have to bloom. The scent of them, when I step into either the front or back yard, is overwhelmingly pleasant. It washes over me, drifts upon the air, […]

Don’t get caught up in the wind

by Rebecca

It’s very windy here this evening. I don’t like it. There’s a wind warning in effect. The weather network has advised of this in stark red lettering: Wind warning in effect. It catches your attention. You can’t miss it. The winds are gusting up to 80 kph. It’s disturbing, or at least, I find it […]

Time and distance

by Rebecca

I am constantly caught up in the art that is conversation. Constantly caught up in the words that are said, and the words that are not said, both yearning toward all that is unsaid.You know what I mean. When you say almost what you want to say, but don’t say what you really mean to […]

Building blocks

by Rebecca

Words are powerful things. I’ve come to know this. I’ve come to realize this simply through my continued use of them, and also, through the use that others employ of them. I pay attention to such things.Words are like the tools you use to build a house. Some people are very careless with words, as some […]

Talk to me.

by Rebecca

Communication is an art. It must be practiced. You must diligently practice communication for it to become a beautiful, seemingly effortless attempt to bridge the gap that exists between two disparate individuals. If I touch you here, do you like that? If I do this for you, does it please you? Yes, that, that one […]
