when i’m fifty – Quixotic Mama

since i’ve turned
fifty
i’ve gotten a leech
for the first
time
ever
while wading in a cool pool
of water
since i’ve turned
fifty
i’ve gotten stung
by a wasp
for the first
time
ever
in the face even….
but
neither were
nearly
as scary as
i imagined
all these years
huh…
i wonder what
other
firsts
wait for me in
this second half
of my
century.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
