Mostly Minutiae No. 31


It is later than yesterday; the end is near. Not of everything, just some things. So, I’ll start closer to the end. We just finished watching Department Q, the third in a series. Amazing work by Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares in this intense movie. I’m just starting to […]

Mostly Minutiae No. 30


Quiet, reflective day after my third session of EMDR yesterday. I’m exhausted really. Feel like I went through World War II in a single day. It seems my brain was on a mission to seek out what I didn’t know about the details of my abuse. How did I live […]

Mostly Minutiae No. 29


I hated it when my mother dressed my brother and I in matching outfits. In this case matching solid red sports jackets and ties. It was the 1950’s and we were driving into NYC for something special. I was going to get to meet one of my heroes. Yogi Berra. […]

Mostly Minutiae No. 25

It feels like Saturday, but it is Friday. So it was flavorful Gevalia; Wally hit the spot this morning. And bagels. I’m so tired I can’t remember what we talked about. She had one ounce of Jarlsberg and a half of bagel with PB. I got cleaned up earlier than […]

Mostly Minutiae No. 22


I’m between dropping the kids off at the airport and my EMDR appointment. I’m sitting with steno pad in hand at a Starbucks near Bell & Tatum in a chair, not at a table. In the front left corner my back to the window; looking at the whole store. Packed. […]
