Writing Prompt: Holding Hands

Photo: A local church started holding a formal ball twice a year at the university. It's grown to have hundreds of attendees. The kids come early in the day to learn old timey dances, then the ball is at night. They do this hand holding thing...

Coffee Thoughts:

"One of my favorite things in the world is to be seeing two people that are really old, still holding hands, still kissing."
~Tommy Lee (NOTE: Really? Tommy Lee? OK)

"The second-grade films - where are they? No more are they made, and yet they were by far the best films for holding hands at, and wasn't this always the main purpose of the cinema?"
~Patrick Kavanagh

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

I'm getting to the end of a doozy of a 12 hour shift in which my patient tried really hard to go into a full respiratory collapse. He's got a tracheostomy through which I've had to suction - constantly - overnight and he's kept plugging off because of all the gunge in his chest. Watching a patient struggle for breath through their throat while you're trying to clear it of shit is not amusing.

Don't mind saying it - and I apologize for the language - but I'm fucking toasted.

Don't smoke.

Afternoon, Pham. The only thing I have successfully accomplished today is a documentary on the Undertaker I was watching (don't judge) and breakfast. Hardly feels like a Friday to me. Holidays mess up my time sense, though. They always have and always will and is partially why I hate holidays in general. I hope everyone is handling their shit ( @Fred_Bourque ) better than me today.
Here's two of my finds today: a meme that really makes you think and a pride of lions that hunted and killed a crocodile, which reminds you of your place in the grand scheme of things.
