We are Broken

We have tried.  Others have tried.  Amy has joked that even the psychiatrists have given up. That’s mostly part of her defense, which employs comedy as a smokescreen. But it’s impossible. We can’t be fixed.  We are going to be broken. I (Amy) tried to fix myself and become what … Continue reading

Old Injuries

  I never was very athletic in my younger days, but I have friends who have to wear a brace or need to ice certain joints after exerting too much effort nowadays. I find as I continue my interpreting career, I need to wear a brace on my wrist to … Continue reading

  “Tired” ?   I feel tired.  So. Very. Tired. I’ve felt tired for a couple weeks now. Sure, there’s reasons for it. I’m working too much, I’m filling weekends with obligations instead of rest, I haven’t had a proper Sabbath, and life just doesn’t seem to want to take … Continue reading
