Love is blind – Marriage is the eye-opener

13 Dec

Look Me In The Eye: Love is blind – Marriage is the eye-opener.

Is it ever!  Phew. I’ve been running this marathon for 11 years (with 4 years spent prepping for that marathon.  Needless to say, prepping for a marathon with running on a treadmill is a completely different sport than running an actual marathon.  And yes, I feel that “Heartbreak Hill” applies to this metaphorical marathon as well.  And no, I don’t actually run on anything except for my sentences.  Bah-dum-dum-tsch.)

Click the link above for a fantastic piece by David Finch, who guest-blogged this post on John Elder Robison’s blog.  Fantastic writing and I found myself nodding my head so much that I feel like I’m still nodding my head, minutes after I stopped reading and nodding.  Capisce?  Good.

Enjoy.

(misheard song lyric)

Just a quick update to let everyone know that I am still here, but energy has been spewing everywhere but the blog! I’m caught mid-xfer…Trying to move everything to typepad, but don’t have the energy to reformat posts and deal with the tagging/category translation screwup… Soooo… I’m still here…Still updating here… Posting occasional photos over there… Trying to decide if I should separate my art and my adventures in healthcare and parenting, but at the same time they all co-exist, maybe not so happily all the time, but I never intended for this blog to be a pristine studio portrait, I wanted it to be a pile of polaroids, fingerprints on the lens and all…So I am still on the fence…Will announce the big move more officially soon.

The universe just keeps dropping traffic cones and those Bob’s barricades hurdle-y mini-fence things (pylons?) everywhere I turn…Just enough so I can put up my arms and say “why!” but then it dumps piles of paper in those outstretched arms, honey gets somehow dumped over my head, and then the freaking universe turns a fan on. A FAN! What the #*@&? (see I have been working on my potty mouth)

Wish I could handle all of this with zen like grace and a serene moon-like glow, wish I could post an entry about managing stress, illness, parenting a special needs kid, financial drama at homeplate, and how it’s all a great big fabulous TA-DA! learning experience, but we all know that when you are eyeball deep n the big steamy, chunky stew that insight will happen eventually, learning may be around the corner, but right now you’ve got to grab on to that carrot wheel and kick because your life, or at the very least your sanity, depend on it.

No really. I’m ok. I am. or at least I will be.

*insert primal yell here* (yeah, not really me…maybe that should read *insert slightly operatic and comedic bellow*)

Huge hugs all around…
