Funny how life shifts like sand on a dune. Last week I was concerned about my body, the neurologist, yoga, reducing tension in my life. Taking care of me. Writing romance for fun and to ease stress. Breathe in. Breathe out. Calm.
Now all the sudden I may be going to Haiti next month.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Okay, now panic.
Like I said, funny how life shifts. Already I feel the tension back in my neck. Reason we will go? We need to squeeze in a trip before elections in November. Right now we hear it is “calm.” Traveling to Haiti is like that scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Indy maneuvers his way through booby traps to get to the grail. You try to dodge the violence, rush there when there is a bit of peace, do all you can as fast as you can, and then rush home.
Spammers have attacked my blog, thus the reason I shut down comments. I am going to leave this post open and see what happens. The minute I get a spam attack, sorry. Comments go. They aren’t even creative spammers, like the types I get on my email account. Did you know all love enhancers can be found on one portal? Or that my wife will find me more attractive if I increase a certain bodily fluid? The big thing now is the spam coming not from Niger. It’s the spam from an “agent in Europe.” Look at this beauty I had to open from a guy named Fagan (like the character in Dicken’s Oliver Twist?) Rooms for girls who want to model? Is that what they are calling it now? I love the chutzpah of these spammers. I just wish they would learn to spell.

Here's what I would reply:
Girls who want to model? No thanks. Give me ten cute cabana boys with sculpted muscles who will wait on me hand and foot, feed me grapes and frozen cocktails with little yellow umbrellas and maybe we can talk. Better yet, get me a dozen hard-working maids and I will be happy to share my living domicile with them in exchange for housework. You should see all the laundry I have.
