  • Who’s flying the plane?

    I flew a plane last week, Delta flight 837.
    Well, maybe not “flew” it, but I definitely helped.
    My daughter moved to Hawaii last week and flew from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine hour, 14 minute flight that I tracked on my computer.
    For nine hours and 14 minutes I watched an airplane icon inch its way across the continent and then over the Pacific Ocean.
    At one point, about an hour off the California coast, the plane on my computer screen faced east instead of west.

  • First world problems

    Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen. Nobody knows my sorrow.
    Today I’m suffering First World Problems. To name a few:
    I noticed too late that the gray of my shirt does not match the gray of my pants. Also? I left the house without wearing any bracelets, so not only am I color uncoordinated, but I have naked wrists.

  • Give thanks

    My Father who art in heaven —
    Truly, hallowed and holy is your name.
    As I begin to write my yearly psalm of thanksgiving, this my 12th or 13th year, I’m wrestling with where to start, what to say, how to even approach you.
    Not that I’m not thankful, because I am. But I don’t want this to be rote and same —  or worse, clever for cleverness sake. After 12 or 13 years, I struggle to be fresh. I struggle to be present, to not just phone it in.
    Your holiness, your hallowedness, demands that I be real before you.

  • Welcome to my demise

    Recently, I had a raging flare up of my chronic, terminal hypochondria.
    It always hits on a Friday after regular doctors’ and dentists’ hours are over, which only increases the intensity of the flare up.
    I’ve died many times from hypochondria, if only in my mind.
    This recent attack came as a result of using too many new dental hygiene products at once. I had seen a commercial that warned: If you’re not whitening your teeth, you’re yellowing them.
    Sounds ominous, right?
