My head is better for the moment, yay, but it’ll be another day before I’m feeling like myself again. I made it through the physical side effects of the meds, the every joint in my body aches and I can barely move stage. Now I just have the psychological part to weather. You see, as the meds work their way out of my system, they make my mood bounce all over the place at the drop of a hat. Today was no exception.
I started out mellow and calm.… Continue

I read a Dirt Bike magazine today. There is plenty of stuff in it that I might have told you about. How to lace up a new rim, that new reeds might keep your plugs from fouling once you replace a bent exhaust pipe, how to dial in your sag to get optimum performance during a race, how to repack your muffler. Yes, I could tell you about all that plus more because, believe it or not I do actually understand what they all are. I had a dirt bike when I was a… Continue

Twisted and tormented
Gripped, crippled by pain
Blinded by agony
Unable to think
Mind, body, soul tortured
Make it stop.
Sick cosmic joke?
Begging for death
Silver bullet to quell the… Continue

This week’s essay is posted: The Dubious Art of Procrastination
Here's an excerpt:
"Procrastination is something best put off until tomorrow."
A fellow writer asked recently when I would write an essay about settling on one Work In Progress instead of just piddling around with four. *grin* Thanks for the topic, Celia!
Ah, procrastination. I could do a week of essays on that… Continue

To announce my new release, I wanted to post something relevant to my story. Cat's Curse is a Celtic historical romance/fantasy set in sixth century Scotland (Alba). I based this story on an actual Irish warlord and many of the minor characters are based on real people. One of those real people is the famous monk, St. Columba, who was a close friend of this Irish king and though a minor character, St. Columba (Columcille) played an important role in the story. Throughout my story and through… Continue

I went to see my favorite neurologist last Friday. It’s summer so I always have to check in and let him know that I’m still alive. While I was there he told me about a new class of drug that will be available to help prevent migraines. Unfortunately it’s still in the FDA approval stage so it won’t be available until next year at the earliest.
He did give me something else to try for major pain once a headache hits. Marginal. Anybody have any… Continue

The first week at Lingpori had passed slowly. Jean-Philippe was not used to the rigid hours that the lamas kept and it had taken a few days to adjust to them. Rinpoche had not insisted that he try to keep up with all of the Lamasery’s activities. Instead, Rinpoche gradually eased him into the routine by adding more to it each day. Jean-Philippe was grateful for Rinpoche’s consideration. The journey from Nepal had taken its toll on his body and he greatly needed the rest.
During that… Continue
