A Month of Significant Events Does Not Change My Reality

It has been an interesting 31 days.  I still have not processed it all.  I don’t know how to process some of it.  I have been told to try to look at these things in the context of "the glass being half full".  What I have found in looking through my own personal lens at… Continue reading A Month of Significant Events Does Not Change My Reality

Confirmation of What I Knew Already

Returning from an event in Northern Virgina, I decided to call the Diocese of Scranton and get confirmation that Robert Gibson had died.  I identified myself and asked for the office that could help me confirm that a priest, formerly of the Diocese, had passed away.  I was transferred to another office and, once again,… Continue reading Confirmation of What I Knew Already

Father Robert J. Gibson has died

I have heard from what I consider to be a very reliable source that Robert Gibson passed away in late May 2012. I do not have a confirmation on that from the Diocese of Scranton. I will be asking for that confirmation as soon as I have posted this. I don't know exactly what I… Continue reading Father Robert J. Gibson has died

Assuaging their own grief…

I have to admit that sometimes I get really angry over some of the comments that are sent in that, on the surface, seem to want to offer me encouragement but, in fact, are supportive of either the man who raped and beat me or others like him.   They are most likely sent by well-meaning people who… Continue reading Assuaging their own grief…

Something is not quite right

I inquire as the health and well-being of my perp, Robert J. Gibson, periodically.   I did so last month to the Victim Assistance Coordinator for the Diocese of Scranton.  Admittedly, the email to Joan Holmes was pretty sarcastic. I asked the question "Is the monster still alive?".   I did edit out the adjective I used initially. As is… Continue reading Something is not quite right

Many changes…

This is a blogospheric (a new word is born) place holder.  The last few months have seen many changes in almost every aspect of my life.  I will probably get to most of them in the coming weeks.  I have some things to say, some things to think on and some goals to accomplish and… Continue reading Many changes…

I’m back…

It has been a couple of months since I last sat down and worked on this blog.  To be honest I have had a few things on my plate.  There are many changes heading my way this summer, personally and professionally.  More about that in future posts. In recent months two bloggers I followed have… Continue reading I’m back…

Silence on the net…

It has been a while...  I have been struggling with some major issues in my life as of late.  Matters involving my family and what is best for them, my job situation, and my own personal happiness are the priority.    The blog  just did not make the top of the priority list (or the middle for that matter) lately.… Continue reading Silence on the net…

NDHS Class of ’78

There has been a flurry of emails in the past couple of weeks from some of my classmates at Notre Dame.  My blog was discovered by a friend from  NDHS class of '78 and she has been spreading the word.  I alluded to her email a few posts ago.  She thought that she may have been… Continue reading NDHS Class of ’78

The emails have not stopped

I have been trying to sort out so many things in my brain over the last two months.  Writing posts did not make the top of the list. I have a list of topics for posts that need some attention.   There was a great post on Tim Fischer's blog "Altered Boy" that talked about the… Continue reading The emails have not stopped
