• Once upon a time i used to write, if not prolifically, then at least with some frequency. It’s hard to point to when i shifted but i think it was about a decade or ago when i went through my last breakup. My posts have become sporadic at best because my motivation to write just…… Read more

  • A new hosting company

    Since the beginning of Synaesthetic, i was being hosted by Godaddy. Back then they weren’t just a new player on the stage, they were /craving/ business and had reasonable rates. I could never complain about the reliability of Godaddy nor their support but over the years, those reasonable rates became… unreasonable. For my two very,… Read more

  • Goodbye DB

    I know it’s been a long time since i wrote. I’ve thought about it but there really hasn’t been much that was so remarkable that i thought it was worth sharing. There’s also the fact that i have this pile of shit from years ago that i promised i’d eventually post. For years it was… Read more

  • How trashy (and sad)

    I have a profile on OKCupid. It’s… well, it’s free and you get what you pay for. A few days ago I was playing around on it, using a feature I hadn’t used before. Of course, my ex shows up. There was the pic she used before we met, which had been taken years before… Read more

  • The theme i’ve used for years, Stargazer, was updated a few days ago. It appears that it forced a new appearance and one that, frankly, i’m not very happy with. In the coming days, as time allows, I’ll find another theme and change things but until then, synaesthetic is going to look kind of rough.… Read more

  • Sundays are still tough

    I have only a few minutes left in this day before i have to sleep. We’re deep in the rain season here in the PNW. It can be a time of absolute splendor; beauty beyond description. But it has its challenges. The sun begins to move toward the western horizon at an alarming rate by… Read more

  • As of a day or two ago (I don’t remember quite when it happened) marked the three year anniversary of my ex breaking up with me over the phone after four and a half years together. Her last words to me were, Shelly, I’m oh so smart and there are so many things that I… Read more

  • Part one

    There have been so many changes in my life in the last two years that i’m not even going to begin to describe all of them here. But i can’t seem to describe ANY of them either. A few months after my breakup, i came into some information that i was previously ignorant of. It… Read more

  • Prelude

    It’s been a long time since i’ve written anything. Even now i don’t want to write because sometimes just talking about experiences can cause me to fall back into that experience and undo the healing that i’ve worked so hard to earn. Sometimes just remembering what i’ve been through is like eating a lump of… Read more

  • Much has happened to me in the time since my last post. There hasn’t been a lot of good in these last few months but there’s been at least one good thing to come out of it. That and a lot of other items will have to be discussed in another post. Today i wanted… Read more
