On the short list of things I want to do when retirement starts rolling in (fingers crossed…by the end of the year)….
Yep. I am 53 years
old young and I want to re-straighten my teeth while I have teeth still in my head.
Go ahead and call me vain, but I miss grinning at people. I wish I could be okay with my overbite being where it was before I wore braces the first time. I’m not.
This morning, while I waited for the coffee to brew, I contemplated how incredibly “silly” it is for me to want to go through this process, and at my age. So, I decided then that prior to being cremated when I croak, die, kick the bucket, stick my fork in the wall…… I want a viewing for friends and family.
I want the mortician to do whatever it is they do for a corpse, but only with me smiling.
I believe the folks who know and love me will totally understand and we shall laugh together.
"Women have always been healers. They were the unlicensed doctors and anatomists of Western history. They were abortionists, nurses, and counselors. They were pharmacists, cultivating healing herbs and exchanging secrets of their uses. They were midwives, travelling from home to home and village to village. For centuries women were doctors without degrees, barred from books and lectures, learning from each other, and passing on experience from neighbor to neighbor and mother to daughter. They were called “wise women” by the people, witches or charlatans by the authorities. Medicine is part of our heritage as women, our history, our birthright."

I’ve weaned myself off my antidepressants. They are good for me up to a point and then zombie life sets it.
So, they had to go.
Today, I went to the gym and it was good….. until I tried to use the exercise ball. I suspect that if the gym has an end of year party, where they show a blooper reel from the security feeds,………. I will be on it.
Series finale of True Blood in an hour. I have a solid plan for getting through it:
1. Preparation is key:
2. Stay occupied during:
3. Double up as it progresses:
4. Cushion yourself for the after-effects:
5. Stay close to the toilet (especially if the ending is as heinous as we are anticipating. I fear it might be needed.). And have a friend nearby for moral support:
Let’s survive this together!
My series of paintings done for the Doctor Who comics series! (Well, the first three, at least… wink wink.) They are the covers of the #1 issues for each respective Doctor - Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth. It’s the first time I’ve released the artwork without the titles and whatnot - this was a MAJOR project for me this year, started all the way back in 2013 - I’m proud and honored to be so deeply involved with an official project like this. Here’s to more covers and Doctor Who in the future!
