I have a draft started about the anniversary of my narcolepsy diagnosis somehow flying by me earlier this month, but I'd rather talk about something way cuter than narcolepsy: To clarify, Frida is not a fox. She is my dog, of mostly indeterminate lineage. She reminds me of one though. On Tuesday, when my sister … Continue reading Frida the Fox
Synchronicity is one of my favorite words. I don't think that everything happens for a reason, but I try to see events and relationships through all the ways they influence one another rather than direct cause and effect - for better and worse.

Now I've passed the two week mark and tomorrow will be two weeks since being discharged, along with my first day back at work. I'm thankfully only doing about two hours, which should be well within my capabilities … Continue reading Hazily fast and fleetingly slow
