plum texan: adventures in being me.

In the front car, with my arms in the air

I’ve been on quite a roller coaster ride for weeks. But you know what? The best thing about roller coasters is, no matter how nervous the highs make you, how queasy the lows make you, how dizzy you get from spinning and twisting…if you get to the end and the sum total is pretty much positive…nay, exhilarating…

…you jump off, look at those on the ride with you, holler “Let’s go again!”, and jump right back in line.

Lately, most every day has been like that for me. I’m not precisely where I want to be yet, for sure – and sometimes it’s hard to think I’ll ever get there – but for every death-drop day like yesterday, there is a gradual, giddy climb like there was today…and a few fabulous moments, here and there, of hanging suspended upside-down in space. There is so much going on. I am so tired, and I have so much to do…and I’m loving every minute of it.

Here’s to getting back in line.

*looks around, hollers “Let’s go again!”, and dashes off to the turnstile*



  1. I found you on 43 things! I liked your goals, so I guess not surprising that I also like your blog! I made my boyfriend go on a rollercoaster this summer, he (literally speaking) almost had a panic attack, poor thing. But I love them! And I agree that life should have its ups and downs to keep you entertained!
