The more I know, the less I understand
...a yearning undefined...
It's about forgiveness...
Really? Yes, really.


  1. Call me Ishmael-Aye Be Gar - but I'll be getting this HTML thingy.
    I stab at thee! From my keyboard, I stab at thee!
    Now it's off to Starbuck's!
    Coffee, that is...

  2. Thanks for keeping up with our posts. You're amazing, you've accomplished so much and you continue to inspire me. I'm back on plan today, teeth or no teeth...lol!!!

    I wish you a wonderful, satisfying day.

  3. aww thanks so much... i feel pretty, oh so pretty!!!

  4. Way to show some love for the menfolk.

    You rock, Anne!

  5. Yep! That's me -
    Nuttin' but ♥love♥ for the menfolk!
    Jack - YOU rock!

  6. Anne, what a wonderful song, I don't think I have heard it before, Enjoy your days off. Take care.

  7. Yes, and thank you - cleaning out the truck -which (no doubt) represents some vehicular part of my mind.....
    Turns out I am much better off alive! Easier to "drive" that way.

  8. Eagles, whata band! I gave up on html awhile back, even steve couldn't explain it to me. you have it down pat, anneh!!

  9. Aye Be Gar Ishmeal. lol

    Be sure to learn how to forgive yourself. That was probably the hardest one for me, but the most important in my growth. :)

  10. Ant Girl - Just like this Moby Dick reference -
    I have to walk away from my desires before they consume me!!
    Maybe "real" forgiveness - the kind that works - somehow extends from our own forgiveness of ourselves.
    "All doubt is self doubt." All forgiveness is Self-forgiveness.

  11. Danke, Anne! :-)

    Your blog and presence certainly brighten my days and those of many others as well.

    I remember that Don Henley song. Beautiful songwriting on that album, if I recall correctly. It's been awhile ...

  12. Thanks for the award Anne! By the way - I love The Eagles!

  13. You got it, guy! (South Beach Steve, that is)
    JP, It's all back to you!
    And Kelly, thanks for your support!
    Rachel - I dunno about this HTML...⟪it ain't easy!/⟫

  14. Anne, thanks for your nice comment on my blog.

    I'm also working constantly on "forgiveness." I am realizing I have so much anger from my childhood, but it feels good to get it out and then let it go. It's definitely a long process.

  15. Anne, thank you so much for the award. I can tell that we do have a lot in common :).

  16. Thank you very much my friend! I love your attitude and your blog! re-learning life skills and learning to forgive---you got me right there---it most defines my journey too. Again, thank you.

    My best always

  17. Yesterday was the first time (in months)
    I came home and didn't go right to the phone!
    So the forgiveness must have worked - on some level.
    It doesn't change the outcome - it just changes my response to it.

  18. The Eagles are the greatest. I was lucky enough to see them live at Staples Center a few years ago- Every single song was a hit.


  19. heya Annne :)

  20. Never a problem, my Low Carb friend!
    You are busy!
