Let the Healing Begin

It’s Halloween!  And yet another bewildered soul launches yet another half-baked blog.  Coincidence?  Why, yes.

Except, perhaps, for this:

For the last three months, I’ve been a zombie.  A ZOMBIE!

And it’s time to wake up.

So this is a blog for all the zombies out there.  Struggling to get by in pursuit of a crazy dream.  Struggling – despite your intelligence, degrees, walls of awards, and treasure troves of past kudos – just to make ends meet.

Because  Zombies, as the wise man says, can’t laugh.  Or make spaghetti.  Or teach their young ones decoupage.

It’s time to return to the land of the living.  Even if things look bleak.  Take a step back from our bewilderment, marvel at the mess, have a chuckle, and maybe even learn something.

This is a blog about the things we have to do to get by.  And the choices we made that got us here in the first place.  It’s about what might very well be our own incompetence, stubbornness, stupidity, delusion, or just shit luck.

So confess those embarrassing moments, purge those cringe-inducing memories, exorcise those lapses in judgment, prudence and good sense.

Or simply shake your head in bemused wonder at the life you’ve been leading.

Let the healing begin.
