Late-winter sunshine on my shoulder
I feel happy and so glad for the sunshine, and to be able to be naked under it in our backyard.
I feel happy to be alone wrapped in quiet solitary warmth.
I feel hopeful that eventually I will happily stop trying to be more normal and just accept that I can’t be and celebrate that I’m not.
I started using an app called Raise the Bar. One of my goals is to be active outside at least a measly ten times a month for a productively invigorating period of time, so I took a cold run/walk at 4ish:
As I got to the point I started worrying that I’d have to climb over these rocks to make it to the beach and sunset around the corner. I really didn’t feel like climbing on the rocks. But I told myself to stop worrying about it — stop trying to make a plan, stop preparing myself for disappointment, stop preparing myself to turn around too soon — and just keep walking and not think about it. Because it’s not a very big deal to just turn around when it becomes fucking clear you want to turn around. I don’t need to constantly assess and imagine what’s ahead.
I was going to try to cam tonight but I think I should go to sleep earlier-ish instead. I keep feeling like I’m coming down with a cold.
Our skies are usually clearer, but colder here in PT.

Many many thanks to my wife, DeliaTS, for getting everything ready for this shoot (and taking the pictures, of course) and to our new bearded friend, Goat (and his pipes and suspenders and jolly goodwill) who is an even more perfect Pacific Northwestern version of Santa than I could have dreamed up. This is honestly one of my favorite things we’ve ever done for my site, making this shoot a better present than I hoped for or could have bought myself for holiday-time!
I forgot to post this here . . . as a winter follow-up to this and this:
No I didn’t stage these pics – it’s just winter with spring coming and folks are stripping off their mittens and gloves and then they fall out of their pockets.
No nudie pic because I like to take some time off with the dark / new moon AND because this.
It’s been snowing for the past couple of hours, but cameras can’t see it properly.
Yes. I can see it with my eyes; it’s still snowing outside.
I can certainly FEEL the snow & heavy wet chilled air.
NOTE: those are huge boxer shorts I’m wearing under my cozy pants, NOT diapers, as you may be wondering after reading this post. Gah! I’m not peeing THAT much!
So glad we’re getting precipitation in all kinds of forms to help make up for the drought. This is the kind of snow I grew up with in C________. Non-stick heavy wet slush most of the time. Here in P___ T______ the snow is usually drier. This here today is funny stuff.
I’m just happy the days are getting longer. REALLY happy! And my cold is getting better (again). And tomorrow I’m going to get some B Vitamin and Magnesium shots. And stay on top of them this time! For real. And maybe my period will start. It’s late because I haven’t fucked and exercised enough over the past month. Boooooo, Trixie.
