There are many things that I don't have in my life which most people do. Besides the fact that I don't have a husband or children, I do want to believe that I don't have them by choice. I did frequently agree with the notion that marriage was a "trap" of sorts but I guess... Continue Reading →
Each day, at least once per day, I have a thought I plan to blog about...whether it be about my job choice, my upcoming vacation or my relationship. I always feel as though I am having a feeling, idea or emotion which should be explored through writing. And then, quite frequently, I sit down to... Continue Reading →
Around this time of year, I tend to spend more time alone. My friends all have families and spouses that they tend to spend the holidays with. And while many of them would probably love to see me, I hate to impose on anyone at this time of year, thinking that they should be with their families anyway.
Every once in a while, I might see what I imagine to be a happy mother with a beautiful child in stroller or carriage and the thought might cross my mind...wow, that really would have been so cool, to have become a mother.

It's not that strange, I don't think...but while living in a foreign country (non-American) it is very difficult to be known as anything else but as being an "American." No one cares where I find my identity or whom I feel I most identify with. As far as anyone is concerned, I'm "American" and that's... Continue Reading →
After last night's post...which turned out to be pretty heavy...I'd like to turn to a more "lighter" side of life...to discuss how happy I've become with my most recent choice of exercise. As many of you may have read in a post I put up a few months, my gym was out of commission due... Continue Reading →
"It's going to rain all week!" a good friend told me yesterday. Ugh! But I have things to do...people to see...errands to run! Like today I want to go to the shoemaker to get my bike accessory fixed (I don't really know what you call it) and then to the tailor to pick up the... Continue Reading →
