OF BOOKSHELVES AND RECORD CABINETS

I'm a published poet and short story author where music and books were the load bearing walls of my childhood. This led to a love of movies, anything from Bogart to Clooney. My heros are Margaret Atwood, Hugh Laurie, and The Beatles. I was lucky enough to have met Ms. Atwood, taught by Thomas Lux, and to have heard Drake Bell play his own music and cover The Beatles three times. My name is Veronica. Let's get passionate.

Went homecoming dress shopping with my 5’2 daughter today. I’m glad that we get along so well….just as long as I keep my distance and my opinions to myself ;)…she is 16 now, and the girls go stag in a group of about 8. I swallowed my inner scream, though, when she bought the black chunky high heels to go with the short dress. When we got home, she modeled it for me. Her taste was spot on. It works. With a graceful turn, she was suddenly 22 and 5’8. :”)

One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.

I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it. 

4 childbirths (the first, 23 hrs with no meds)….breast cancer surgery and reconstruction….gall bladder surgery….uterine ablesion. I HATE THAT QUESTION 1-10….PAIN IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE!!!!

Have you ever felt a potential love for someone?

Like, you don’t actually love them and you know you don’t, but you know you could. You realise that you could easily fall in love with them. It’s almost like the bud of a flower, ready to blossom but it’s just not quite there yet. And you like them a lot, you really do. You think about them often, but you don’t love them. You could, though. You know you could.

It’s always exciting to see colour shots from sessions which you’ve only seen black and white shots of. Look at Anita’s dress and the shawl. I wouldn’t have guessed in a million years that they were in those colours!

^^

…me, too.

  • Good pick up line: Nice shirt, I love that band.
  • Better pick up line: Nice shirt, I'm in that band.
  • The 'Good' is basically what Paul Stanley said to me in May....FUCK...I wish I'd known the 'Better' at the time....
