Fire and Water

Fire and water - two different elements that don't mix well. It's a good description of someone who has depression "issues." There are times I just can't stay in the game and need to go away for a while. I'm NOT seeking sympathy, honestly, but feel that sometimes an explanation may be necessary. I usually put my "blue notes" on my other blog in order to keep this one somewhat light in nature, but for all of you of whom I am very fond - you need to know why
I've been absent lately. It's not just blogging - it's kinda life in general.

Just so everyone knows I'm really okay, here's a little something special:

THREE WOMEN , TWO YOUNGER, AND ONE SENIOR CITIZEN, WERE SITTING NAKED IN ASAUNA. SUDDENLY THERE WAS A BEEPING SOUND. THE YOUNG WOMAN PRESSED HER FOREARM ANDTHE BEEP STOPPED. THE OTHERS LOOKED AT HER QUESTIONINGLY. "THAT WAS MY PAGER," SHE SAID. I HAVE A MICROCHIP UNDER THE SKIN OF MY ARM. A FEW MINUTES LATER, A PHONE RANG. THE SECOND YOUNG WOMAN LIFTED HER PALM TOHER EAR. WHEN SHE FINISHED, SHE EXPLAINED, "THAT WAS MY MOBILE PHONE. IHAVE A MICROCHIP IN MY HAND." THE OLDER WOMAN FELT VERY LOW-TECH. NOT TO BE OUT DONE, SHE DECIDED SHE HADTO DO SOMETHING JUST AS IMPRESSIVE. SHE STEPPED OUT OF THE SAUNA AND WENT TOTHE BATHROOM. SHE RETURNED WITH A PIECE OF TOILET PAPER HANGING FROM HERREAR END. THE OTHERS RAISED THEIR EYEBROWS AND STARED AT HER. THE OLDER WOMAN FINALLY SAID.........WELL, WILL YOU LOOK AT THAT... I'M GETTING A FAX!!

I'm not here often because your site doesn't feed to Google Reader, and I never know when you have a new post, so I only come around when I see your comments start popping up everywhere.

Don't sweat the issues, Gracie. We all have something; I think that's why we blog, right? We need an outlet.

Oh, and the joke? Cute, cute!

What everyone said is pretty much what I was thinking. Just know that I love you and it's okay if you have to go away for a while.

Loved the joke. I got a visual and that made it even funnier. Big hug sweetie. :)

Be sure to take care of you for as long as you need. We'll be around.

The picture is beautiful!

Big hugs. Left you a note on your other blog... in the entry Three Funerals.

We were both in the same "place" at the same time.

Peace, my friend.
