I learned a wonderful new word
(noun) Originated from Ancient Greece, nepenthe is described as something, which can make you forget your heartache, grief or suffering. (via wordsnquotes)
and I realized I have a lot of things in my life that I can classify as nepenthe
My heart was broken this month. Someone whom I loved dearly, instead of bringing an issue they had to me, chose a different way to handle it. I was crushed that this was the path they had chosen. Even moreso since the ensuing chaos has defamed another person I love and cherish. I have asked myself many times over the course of these past few days, what, if anything, could I have done to engender more trust by this individual. When I have an issue with something someone said or did, I go to the source, always to the source. I thought this was known protocol... or rather, I would have hoped that this was the protocol I have tried to instill in those around me. After days of ruminating, I realize it wasn't something I did or could have done. It was a knee-jerk reaction on their part. I am disappointed.
Because of the chaotic aftermath of the above story, I thought I would offer up a sounding board if anyone had any questions about some of the heinous social media posts that they had been seeing. I offered up the simple,
"Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have."
After an innumerate amount of private messages, and several public questions that made me pull out my dusty tarot cards, I finally had to close the thread but I have to say, it was a fun Saturday.
I'll have to do it again soon.
Our group held a book fair this month. It was awesome and I got these great pictures.
Are You Not Entertained?
Things that entertained me this month.
Sean Spicer Press Conference (Melissa McCarthy) - Saturday Night Live video
"It took a few insults delivered in a trademark shriek to hammer home that this really was Melissa McCarthy, in drag, capturing the unquestionable essence of a political figure whose public image so far has largely revolved around belligerence, alternative facts, and cinnamon gum. As soon as the assembled audience figured it out, they began cheering, causing McCarthy’s Spicer to berate them once again. “Settle down, SETTLE DOWN!,” she screeched. “Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start. And when I say rocky, I mean Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you. In the face. And also I don’t talk so good.” ~quoted from The Atlantic

When your weekend starts like this, it's gonna be a good time.
The ladies and I were heading out on a short road trip and decided to selfie it just in case we were all lost at once (abducted by aliens, etc). Love these ladies! During the trip we had several conversations, including one about pig bungholes being spongy...
Current convo: balls and bungholes #spongy

In my 'On This Day' popped up an article about taking photos when you're fat and how a lot of people who are indeed fat, avoid photos often.
Many years ago, I was quite camera shy because of my weight. That changed. With photos we document our own history; our lives, our loves, our passions, our dreams. I always take several photos now and find the one I like the best. I hope to get selfies with every friend I have and will ever have. :-)
From the article: "Our vanity is no longer enough of a reason to avoid the camera. Life doesn’t wait until you “get thin” enough to capture it. Life is happening... it is happening right now and the only moment we are guaranteed is the one we are living." Click here to read the article from the Huffington Post in full.
I'm totally zen about it now and plan on getting a selfie with every. single. one. of. my . friends.
