The Socialization of Superheroes

Superheroes are not known for our great people skills. Sure, we know how to save people from dangerous situations but, when it comes to making small talk...well, understandably we are at a bit of a loss. 
Think about it, what mortal person really wants to hear about all of the people  whom a superhero has saved and the crisis situations which were averted because our selflessness and/or our amazing physique?

Superheroes hide from the world during peaceful moments by  painting, writing poetry, or mindlessly strumming a guitar while our thoughts wander. 

However, after the crisis alarm sounds and our very nature compels us to answer the distress call.

We change into our uniforms which come complete with swords, shields, and other weaponry which will assist us in our rescue mission.

Once the distress call has been handled... we go underground again.

This makes being in a relationship with a superhero particularly challenging because most times the love interest's needs will be put aside in favor of someone whom needs immediate rescuing.
Soon, the excitement of being the love interest to a superhero fades into a murky resentment towards  the multitudes of rescuees. 

The love interest knows that asking the superhero to resign, retire, or even take a quick sabbatical is completely out of the question.

Watching them walking away is difficult....but, our hectic schedules rarely allow time to dwell on their departures.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
