A tale of two emails

This has been one heck of a strange day – not strange/bad, just strange/all-over-the-place.  And both the highs and the lows are very neatly illustrated by a pair of emails that came on either end of the day.

EMAIL #1

When I got to work this morning, I found an email from a newspaper reader …

A dream fulfilled – and I didn’t realize it!

A dream fulfilled

I had a moment of epiphany earlier today.  How it had escaped my attention until today, I can’t imagine, but here it is: I’ve often read newspapers and magazines and thought, “I’d love to write a column someday.”

I imagined that it would be a self-help column, or maybe something that tells human interest stories …

Releasing the chains

On Sunday morning, I had 3 or 4 really happy hours. Normally I wouldn’t think that was so unusual, but they’re the first truly carefree hours I’ve had since the breakup. I think it means that I’m starting to round the bend.  Which brings me to an uncomfortable confession.

When I wrote last week about …

Apparently I’m going to hell

Last night a man told me that I am going to hell because I haven’t accepted Jesus as my personal savior.

And thus began my re-entry into the world of socializing with the opposite sex.

Let me back up a bit and give you the context for this particular delight.

A Valentine’s Day meditation

I can’t say that I’m much in the Valentine’s Day mood this year.  Had things been different, I would be on vacation in New Mexico right now.

But alas, I find myself single on Valentine’s Day.  Which reminds me of a conversation I had with fellow blogger Momma Sunshine a couple of weeks ago.  She …

A safe place to land

Yesterday I had the chance to sit with my friend Becky and write.  We’re both writers – and spend a fair amount of time writing on our own – but there’s something really special about sitting with another writer and having instant feedback.  I loved how present Becky was while she was listening and the …

Sweater Shopping

Last year I took a business class that was really fun and interesting. One of the best parts of it is that the students from the class really bonded and we still get together every couple of months for a potluck.  Tonight was one of those nights.

I was chatting with one of the women …
