I am Karan from Olympia, WA.
Almost every other name used here is a
pseodonym pseudonim pseudonymn alias.
The rest of it is true - mostly - and all of it is my own.
Don't even think about taking any of it, unless of course, you want to pay me.

The counter says that 4291267 have been flummelized, but I personally think it's all a big lie.

I haven’t been able to put my finger on it…
I’ve been in a funk...unable to figure out what it is that sent me there. I’ve wallowed in it, trying to think my way out of it. It’s all a process, don’t you know.
My way of moving onward is to examine what’s up and once I figure it out, I feel like I can just get on with my own self and leave that all behind me.
I think I’ve finally figured it out. I think I’m feeling a bit of grief for the loss of the life I expected to be leading at this point in my life. I expected to be living and enjoying my late middle ages with Leonard...finding a simpler existence and looking forward to a formal retirement. Instead, we’ve spent the last 5+ years worrying about money, supporting our grown kids as they move in and out of our home, welcoming a grandson and feeling a mountain of disappointment in most of those efforts and experiences.
One of my favorite hokey homilies is a Yiddish one: “Man plans and God laughs.” And sometimes I need to remember that my own ability to rebound and exercise my flexibility is to understand that just because I was dreaming of a certain outcome doesn’t mean that it will happen.
Once I came to that realization, I slapped my forehead and have now decided to move on. Plus...I remembered that this place is where I air out my brain and reach these realizations sooner.
I am back.
