The Meaning Behind The Name...........Again

I've decided to get back into this whole blogging thing again. I used to really enjoy writing, but have somehow let life get in the way. So here I am. Again. 5 years after I started this blog and never really fully committed and now I am taking another stab at it; Ya know.... New Year New Me crap. I am not going to make blogging my resolution for the new year, instead use writing as my outlet because God knows I need it.

So so much has happened in the past 5 years, I just do not know where to begin, so I will start with my very first post that I wrote what seems like a forever ago.................


Anywho..... so after much debate (with myself) this is what I came up with.  I wanted something meaningful about my life. Something that sums up who I am. My great life's lesson.  THIS is what I came up with. Never Stand Downwind From a Bum.  A lesson I learned many years ago on my first trip to San Francisco waiting to catch the trolley back to the BART.

My blog name kind of sums it all up.  Don't do it. It stinks. It's unpleasant and for the rest of your life you will never forget it.   Your best bet is to hold your breath and wait for the winds to change before you pass out.  It is kind of like my life.  Most of the time it's like standing downwind from a bum.  It can really stink.  But sometimes, the wind changes its direction and I can finally breathe.

I hope you get as much enjoyment as I continue my blog writings, as I do self therapy. I am also hoping to save THOUSANDS of  dollars from going to a therapist just to be told what I already know: Life just stinks sometimes.  Hold your breathe and wait. The smell will dissipate eventually.
