Damn in Reconstruction

So, I’ve been trying to sleep for the last 4.5 hours. Nothing. My mind isn’t even the culprit, I got to my “calming restful” mind space. But my body is just in “fuck that” mode. The best I co...

Bre Tay in Reconstruction

So I don’t know if people have been interested in my particular perspective on certain issues. I am an attorney, but I’m sensitive. I am a prosecutor, but I am genuinely for ending police bruta...

Decided in Reconstruction

I decided that proper sleep, relaxation, and a fresh mind would be the best preparation for trials set tomorrow, so I told the office I was working from home today. This also provides me with th...


Writing more because I can. Sorry to bombard the space so much. Just had depositions on Domestic Abuse. Big massive brute of a guy and this would be his third conviction for it if there is a co...


Well, shit. My pain levels are pretty bad today. And my voice is going. But considering what’s going on in the office for the next two weeks… can’t be sick, can’t get sick. So we’ll just push ...

SERIOUSLY! in Reconstruction

Okay, folks, he said it in public and on the record. For any of you that believe Donald Trump isn’t racist, your arguments will now be deleted and mocked. Because we already had all the proof t...


This is something that most won’t truly understand. Even, I dare say, my most trusted readers. But that is the way when coded expressions rely on older references. You see, when I was consideri...

Grump in Reconstruction

If I’d known then what I know now, lol. In this case meaning? I should have selected TODAY to be the work from home day, not last Friday. Last Friday? Nothing happened. Which sounds like a go...

Parental in Reconstruction

So, here’s something.... Yesterday, Nala was desperate for a walk. All of my “walk buddies” (read parents with children) couldn’t come to give Nala the added stimulation she needs. So I decided...


A spiritual statement on this Sunday… even as far back as pre-teen, I never had a problem with faith. Faith being a knowledge, a sense of certainty, in the Divine. I know that there is somethin...

HST in Reconstruction

Here’s something tragic..... but also Here’s Something Timely..... so, in 2019 I believe there was an entry about a man in his mid to late 20s having sex with a girl in her early to mid teens. A...

Reflection in Reconstruction

So, it’s kind of… really weird. I can say with all sincerity and authenticity: I do not want Nancy back. I am better off without constant arguments, being insulted repeatedly, and being disrespe...

:( in Reconstruction

I am not doing okay today. I massively hurt my foot (giant tear through multiple epidermal layers) I am filled with a severe apathy in connection with my job I feel incredibly isolated and dista...

Pasts and Psych Ups in Reconstruction

Victoria came over last night and… man, those evenings really are just the best. Not just “yay a sexual activity” because while that kind of thing is awesome and… fuck even without an orgasm for...

Then Now Until in Reconstruction

Last night, when I got home.... scratch that. Starting over from earlier. When I left for work on Tuesday, Nala was dead asleep on the couch. Didn’t move or wake up as I went about my morning s...

Tuesday, September 15 in Reconstruction

I’m still struggling. That’s just… honesty. My body is in pain. My work schedule is a mess. My marriage is over. And I’m struggling with my own self-worth. This is actually a regular part o...


Either I’m prepared to cover my boss tomorrow; or the world explodes and I have to put together a jury trial with Duct Tape and Sweat. SO.. here… have some of these Even though mine is an ...

Bloody Hell in Reconstruction

My body hurts so much that putting my shirt on irritated my skin. But this is Jury Trial Week and we need all hands on deck. Frankly, if Nancy were around to crack my back- that would be a small,...

Huh in Reconstruction

I had something I wanted to write here but then… it vanished. I suppose… I’ll just use this space to say, then, that… if we ever get on the other side of this COVID thing? And this “race to Apo...

Thank You To All in Reconstruction

BEFORE I GET INTO THE SUBSTANCE OF THIS ENTRY; I WISH TO STATE THAT THIS IS THE ONLY TYPE OF “SOCIAL MEDIA” I WILL BE POSTING ON TODAY. I AM NOT always GREAT ABOUT THIS BUT SINCE THE 15 YEAR ANN...


Today I am staying busy with work and trying to get things accomplished that I did not or could not accomplish last Friday, Monday, or Tuesday. So that should keep me busy. However, things that...

HA! in Reconstruction

So I had read bookmarks. Skipped existing on-line for pretty much Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. Now there are 97 new Bookmark Entries to read! So… that’ll be a slog. As stated two entries ...

Bit of a Backslide? in Reconstruction

So… wanting to take control and live my bloody life… while still being a good and decent fellow… I asked Nancy what she had planned for Monday, the Bank Holiday. Of course… she responded quickly...

Therapy in Reconstruction

Therapy was good today. I was not. Last night, my pain was bothering me. I took a late soak. Fell asleep in the bathtub. It drained. I became cold. I sleepily walked to bed and curled up in ...

Wow in Reconstruction

I was surprised as hell last night when Victoria came over. It was zero percent sexual. In fact, she helped me walk the dog, helped me clean the kitchen, helped me cook, and watched TV with me....
