Complaining about social distancing while well fed and entertained is a first world issue.
Life doesn’t always have to be hard. Sometimes, Mamas can get good jobs, Grammas can get new hips and a little girl and her dog can play together and watch the clouds float on by.
Sometimes Mamas need help. Sometimes they almost let grief and depression ruin their life, and the lives of the ones they love.
Life’s too short to keep living with a ghost and her kid. It’s time to shake the dust of this town off my boots and go have some fun.
Shiny laptops, missing pension cheques and empty ring boxes are mysteries that need solving. But what can a lonely old woman do?
Sometimes exercising your right to an attorney doesn’t work out. Especially when your attorney needs to respray his Mohawk.
I laugh at the idea of making the present the same as the glorious past. To hear some people talk, their past was lived in Nirvana. Idyllic and almost heaven. Yet I remember their ragged clothes, their snotty noses, using socks for mittens in the middle of winter. The past has different rules.
