falling

learning to fly
means
sometimes
i fall
& even if i have
to sit
& catch my breath
what’s important
(nevermind what i do
while i’m down)
what’s important
is that
i get back up
again.

not to sound like a “hang in there kitty” poster….
and after i wrote this page i still suffered another day or two of the fall.
whiskey helped me make it through. i had not been able to get alcohol because i could not walk & neither of my fair weather friends were running out to the liquor store for me….
but!
i was able to crutch into the local festival foods & get a bottle of maple knob creek bourbon…i feel much better now. trust me, i’m too frugal to become an alcoholic, but like brick in cat on a hot tin roof, sometimes i need to hear that “click.” get that edge softened.
maybe it’s the irish in me.

so!
i’m back to believing in myself. so that’s nice.

regarding my search for friends…i started a profile on okcupid to find friends…but knowing most men never look past the picture…i am going to feature my book, the invisible exhibitionist, and just use my okcupid profile as a way to get attention for my book.
maybe i will make a friend or two along the way.
hey. it might work

  1. LOL – I’m trying to picture the average hot-date-hunting-guy trying to process a book as a profile photo, let alone that title. I remember reading long ago that the ultimate art in writing help wanted ad was to make so that only the one right person would apply. I suspect that any who would respond to your okcupid profile just might be cool.
