Second Look Sunday: Putting Things Into Perspective

Originally posted December 2, 2013 Today I had no intention or desire to go to my therapist. You may have read before the previous post that I started Buddhist psychotherapy. Today I was in no mood to talk. It was a long weekend, I was really really tired and in no mood for dealing with…

Second Look Sunday: Laughing At Myself

Originally posted Novemeber 2, 2013 Yesterday I went to the doctors office at Mt. Sinai and parked in their parking lot which is a six story structure that is usually always full, but I always manage to get a spot. I left the car and took the elevator down to walk over to the hospital…

A Funny Thing Happened As I Ran Out Of The Award Show

Isn’t it funny how the universe works? The more you resist something, the more it will push against you and show itself to test you until you come to terms with it. Blog awards. I stopped accepting them for many different reasons that I won’t go into here, other than I would say that many…

Second Look Sunday: Not Seeing In Black & White

Originally posted July 24th 2013 For some reason, because I have a blog about sarcoidosis, people automatically assume that I am a black woman, although my blog’s tag line is “One man’s positive journey with sarcoidosis”.
