You might have noticed my absence recently. I haven’t written anything in over a month. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is time, but the biggest one is an abysmal lack of inspiration. Otherwise known as writer’s block. Life appears to be slugging along at a snail’s pace until you … Continue reading Running on Empty
Ex, Divorce, and Custody
The Return of Mr. Hyde
This is a hard post for me to write. It’s been two days, and I’m still feeling the aftershocks. For those who know me personally, it may be hard to read. I’ve already respectfully asked those closest to me, not to read it. But I have to write it. I have to. And afterward, I’m … Continue reading The Return of Mr. Hyde
The Other Shoe
These thoughts have been circulating around my brain like flies on shit, and – like most things unpleasant – I chose to ignore them and/or pretend they aren’t there. Those who know my back story will remember that I ended a rather toxic marriage and subsequently survived a very nasty custody battle started by my … Continue reading The Other Shoe
It’s Over – Our Children in the Middle

It’s Over. Can I Help?
Ok so several people have suggested that I write something resembling an advice piece, based on my recent (not to mention traumatic) experiences; however, my intent was to save it all until my own trial was over. Unfortunately it has come to my attention that there are more than a few beautiful women out … Continue reading It’s Over. Can I Help?
Coming out of the Dark
My life has been turned upside down in the last two months. I am living in limbo, while all the legal issues I can’t talk about move like molasses in a cold jar. I am not living where I should be, or where I want to be… and I am paralyzed by the tyranny … Continue reading Coming out of the Dark
Who Broke You?
The time of reckoning one day comes. One day you wake up and the revelation hits you like lightning. It can be particularly worse when you’re spending the afternoon with someone who seems really content with life as it is. Or, maybe it’s meeting or knowing a married couple, down on their luck but still … Continue reading Who Broke You?
