This post is dedicated to Drew, The Lonely Author!

Lonely, as I like to call him, has been resting up in the Dominican Republic.  After a couple of heart attacks, he now awaits surgery.

Restless, I went for an alley walk (no problem keeping social distance in the alleys) and was rewarded with 3 fab garage doors. The moment I laid eyes on this painting, I thought of Lonely.

I have no idea what he looks like, but I know how he feels to me. Lonely is an incurable romantic, and that fact is reflected in his well written & passionate poetry. The colours in this art are like all of the colours, from the various moods, in his poems.

I don’t know what the artist meant by the bleeding purple heart, but that’s Lonely, to me. His heart leads his way. It seems like this image, was painted especially…

    1. Me as a street mural. Haha. Never imagined that. Such an amazing gesture
      by Resa. Really touched my heart. During this period of my life, when I am feeling so alone, so many people (like you) have reached out and touched me in so many beautiful ways that have strengthened my heart and desire to live.

      Rachel, thank you for your beautiful words and everything you have done for me. My eyes water at the thought of how you and others care. I don’t have a lover, but I feel so loved.

      Always 🌹🌹🌹

                1. Feeliong a little better. The doctor had me change my dosage on one of my pills. Now, I am taking a half a pill.
                  My blood pressure this week was running dangerously low.
                  Airports are shutdown here for 15 days. So, I am stuck for now.
                  But today was better.
                  I will be posting a health update tonight or early tomorrow.

                  1. I’m sorry to have asked if you were updating anyway… I don’t want you to feel you’re always answering these questions.

                    So glad the day is better. You have no choice but to stay put now I guess. Sending hugs ❤️. I had an extra coffee for you this morning. In your honour, for when you can have one again.


    1. My surgery is scheduled for April 14th. I will be posting an update on this later tonight. The virus is making things difficult for many, but it really hasn’t affected me since I am staying in my hut resting anyway.

      Thank you for asking. Thanks for your kind words of support.
      Be safe. Take good care of yourself.

  1. My husband just had life saving quadruple bypass surgery, he skipped the heart attack. The severe blockage was found when he did not pass a stress test part of pre-op for shoulder surgery. I hope you will get the surgery you need soon and I hope you will recover as quickly as my husband did. He is my rock star, soon you will be one too.

    1. Smiling as I read this positive, supportive comment. Sorry your husband had to go through any of this. I mistakenly had taken harmful pain killers to. reduce the excruciating pain in my neck and lower back. Drugs that cannot be found in the United States. I took the risk and paid for it dearly. My heart is weakened, and doctors aren’t sure if I am ready for the surgery, but we have no choice.

      Thank you for sharing your experience. It filled me with hope.
      And I am very grateful for that.
      Thank you.
      Be safe.

      1. You have no idea what your comment just did to me.

        I am ordering steroids from India or China myself. I have lost health insurance last year and the only way I function without pain caused by RA are steroids.

        The other choice I have is a very, very health vegan diet, which I have pushed to the side.

        Your comment hit home hard -too hard and it was needed.

        Thank you! I will have to step away and regroup.

        1. I traveled to the Dominican Republic 5 times in the last two years. I thought I would outsmart
          the American Food and Drug Administration, which barred the drug that relieved my pain.
          The joke is one me. It causes harmful affects on the heart, and doctors are uncertain if the surgery will make a difference.

          Sorry, if my comments were rough. I want to make sure no one ever makes my mistake.

          Please take good care of yourself. xo

          1. Good grief! Take care, both of you!
            Bernie may have a point about universal health care. I think he’s a grumpy old man, but I love having NOT to pay for medical services, and many medicines.

  2. Oh Drew, I did not know of your heart condition. Please take care and I am sure you will recover and be hale and hearty. I understand fear and pain – Angels and deities will surround you for full recovery.


    1. Yes, that period during the holidays when. I wasn’t blogging I was very ill.
      I am doing everything I can to get back to good health and hopefully be ready
      for my heart surgery in April.
      Thank you for your kind words and concern.
      Truly appreciate it.
