When the timing is right and you make luck happen

Oops … this ended up under ABOUT on my @WordPress blog: YUPPYdom >> when an accident goes RIGHT! Meant for http://www.graFX.online website >> sometimes just knowing where to be when the timing is right, usually after an utterly shakable event, we can carve away any junk, dump all the toxins in our lives and/or relationships, escaping the work drone on mental health, toxic work behaviour that remains hidden, inter-relationship-bullying accepted culture [where companies protect their reputation over human lives >> clouded by the public domain as fun, cuddly or techie rather than the reality of fear and scare tactics owned by illy trained supervisors and politically savvy politicos pros.

Middle age clearly means having a mid-life crisis not even created by ones self but a loved one or health deterioration that throws one into a mad rollercoaster that never slows down and seemingly speeds up just as you decide you want to debunk that escalates to the need to evacuate or escape, the degree of impact made.

This is actually the most resilient one has to be in their lives. You know you’re on the downhill decline picking up speed to hasten reaching the bottom. Fighting against gravity and all the other fails>wrinkles, talent, success> and so on….

A Winters Eve Read


The best part of the first part of winter, on the eve of fall back an hour, is putting on a fire for ambience more than warmth, curling up with a soft purr like blanket, candles lit and a warm cup of tea, escaped to book that envelopes you.

I first read the second in the series, retrieved from my Mom’s seniors condo complex’s library. My reasoning: if someone gracious places a book there because it is a worthy read.

I went to Apple’s iTunes to see what other books by the same author or a newly discovered genre intrigue. It was cheaper to buy all three as an iBook than order+shipping+waiting for a printed version.

In fact, as a Prime Member at Amazon I have free shipping on the rare occasion I want a printed version for a gift [ which I never did receive, nor my inquiry first, complaint second responded to.

Prime Members get unlimited Kindle titles ~ where I got the Trilogy from.

I realize my favourite reading genre leans towards historically fact-based novels. They’re from a woman’s perspective while sheds light on how a woman thinks, what is expected of her, who she must defer to for permission for anything, her marriage plan adopted at birth, groomed for in youth, so she could be essentially sold into a marriage (by way of a dowry) to anyone her chaperone approved of.

This mesmerizing series examines what it would have been like being born in the early 1500s, the pecking order in formal English King Henry’s court, where strategy and wits needed to accompany beauty.

“Whatever you are, make it a good one.” ~Abraham Lincoln #QuoteoftheDay

Creating a personal website is excruciatingly painful.

I’ve discovered some self-discovery along the way.

Painstakingly slow when one is trying to talk about oneself. At the Twilight of my years, God willing, I have another maybe 20 years on this earth, leaning towards calculating numbers to uncover a wake up call.

I know what I like when I see “IT” dubbed a former “ITgirl” in a small rural town of Alberta.

WAS A GREAT INVENTION OF THE 1980s > not fact-checked for accuracy

I really did l-o-v-e my jobs in the 1980s.

I was introduced to “contra” in the advertising industry standard playbook:

An agreement whereby both parties enter into where instead of money for service/goods, the 2 parties agree to the monetary values of their service/goods equal fairly traded in exchange and instead of currency (including BITCOIN). The agreement is signed between the highest authorized party signature.

I want to give this another try since I’m a Caregiver who needs to get some work or face losing everything.

Great idea!

That looks splendidly heavenly … the years are starting to add up: when once upon a time a princess went to high school and became who she thought she should be, when now, my youngest had her first young adult love painful break up.


The kids R alright

My mom’s so right! When your kids are hurting, you feel their pain along with your own, failing to head them off from heartache. However, it is when they bloom into the person they wanted to be.

The coast or the rollercoaster of empty nesting.

I think I like to write about this phase of my life. It’s a bumpy ride where attitude does triumph over the common ailments of those going through this phase of:

  • Loneliness
  • Disappointment
  • Well being ( physical & mental health
  • Increasing reliance on medication & meetings with medical care professionals
  • Decreased and rapid depletion of financial resources through this phase
  • Dried up pool of “quality” employers who respect and value 50s knowledge, experience,
