It’s the little things

  I ran into my uncle Pokey (yes that’s his nickname) a few weeks back. He’s not really an uncle more like a 5th cousin who grew up with my mother’s brother. I’m from the south so by default since he’s older and a relative he’s given the respectful title of uncle. I’m getting off … Continue reading

jumbled thoughts

For some reason this evening my mind wont settle. I’ve always had several tried and true methods that calmed my racing thoughts. Today, though, they aren’t working. I’ve tried to lose myself in a book (4 actually), but they irritate me. I’ve tried warm ginger tea, but ended up pouring it out. I even fixed … Continue reading

the darkness

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” ― Edgar Allan Poe   Knowing that nothing good can come from having them in my life. I continue to permit their presence. Contact in any form permits them to perform their emotional vampire … Continue reading

I’ll Find a Way

I drove to Atlanta yesterday. I forgot this song was on the cd I was listening to. I shed quite a few tears.     Silence gets so intense Without you to share a word I really miss your presence This loneliness feels awkward But I won’t call you I refuse I’d rather lay here … Continue reading

When enmeshed in chaos i can forget about me and just flow with the moment. The last two weeks have been a study in barely controlled chaos. … Continue reading

Babysitting the nephews

I’m  not a kid person. I made the decision not to have children at a young age. When I was in my 20’s I wouldn’t date anyone with children. As I’ve gotten older I’ve made exceptions for that rule mainly because at the age of 37 (soon to be 38) it’s hard to find someone … Continue reading


I am a fan of a site called Thought Questions. Their tagline asking the right questions is the answer resonates with me. The reason I spend a great deal of time on this blog is that I find the questions help me to home in on my issues. They sometimes ask me things I never thought to ask … Continue reading

Just Jo

Just Jo

I'm just me. Unfortunately I'm still not sure what that means. I know I'm a music lover, sometimes I write, food (the making, discovering, and eating) brings me joy, but none of that is ME. At some point writing this blog may uncover who I am.
