- Two wandering southerners --a neurotic Texan bearing a keen resemblance to Vivien Leigh and a close-mouthed Mississippi sailor with a thing for long-legged beauties, stole me from a red-headed alien who, having laid me on my woven baby blanket under a palm tree at the Alameda Naval Station, was splashing in the cool, funky waters of San Francisco Bay with a seal lion named Frank.

well, it doesn't last. rats and begorrah. who has time to screw around with ipad OS interfaces? Not me, I guess.
Is it possible? Have I cracked the code? Or just cracked up?
So far, so good. The photos have stayed pasted into the blog. It may be too soon for rejoicing or even a good gloat, but then again, it may be some time before I get the chance to thoroughly… Read full post »
The problem with sex is that some people want it more than others. And some people want different things than their partners. And sometimes, one partner doesn't really get that the other isn't really into whatever it is, and just forges ahead, while the other partner tries to be tolerant.… Read full post »
Reviewing mistakes is part of life, which is a damned shame, as it means the's no escape from regret, embarrassment and the aforementioned shame. It's a nuisance. It's avoidable, sure. But I think it's necessary to look back in order to move forward with a bit more grace, maybe even fewer… Read full post »
Woke up this morning so scattered and anxious, heart pounding and too many things in mind. The perfect day for some meditation and qigong--it's been way too long.
Even when you're right where you want to be, sometimes it's hard to stay focused on what's important... Read full post »
this is what happens when I can't get into the metal shop
Finally, my login works on Salon! I had just about given up.
So, quick update, on my way to the dining hall...The change in my blog comes from a change in my life--a tour in the UK at a private art college. Oh, yeah.

I recently took a job as an employment counselor in a small town in southwest Nova Scotia. I was hired just as the "major" employer in town, a mill with a workforce of 300, pulled its annual, "we're gonna shut down the mill if you don't give us everything we want,"… Read full post »
If you're getting married or contemplating an approaching anniversary,
you've probably been looking in jewelry store windows for the perfect
diamond jewelry. And why not? Since time immemorial, diamonds have
been a symbol of undying love.
Well, actually that isn't true. In fact, it's a falseho… Read full post »
This is old news, but then again, this is an old computer. Weighing nearly ten pounds, it rests lumpily on my lap. This Toshiba and I have been through thick and thin together ever since Mike lugged it home from some business trip. Yeah, we needed another laptop, since the plug… Read full post »
I hate this thing that my Toshiba laptop does. I don't even know what to call it, but if someone out there recognizes the behavior and can give me a verb for it, I'd appreciate it, because then I might be able to call Toshiba, tell them the problem, and eventually… Read full post »
It's summertime and the reading is easy...Maybe you're in a funny mood, the mood to buy an e-book, for a kid you know, lately released from school and already whining, "I'm boooored!" Or even for yourself, although truly mature people never get bored. (Right? Right?) Here's a boredom-busting bo… Read full post »
I want you to stop all tax breaks to oil companies immediately. They will raise prices to force you to give in to them, and people will shout and complain. I don't care. I want to see solar and wind projects receiving the funding that currently pours into… Read full post »
You frightened me, drafting out this dream
the whole village calling you an imbecile and harmful to us all
I tried to shield you from the laughing, fearful, inquisitive and my own distrust
Baked the bread, carried wine and water where you labored, soaked… Read full post »
I hear the report
like water balloons on frozen pavement
thud and echo, three times running
The water gurgles from the tub.
Beyond an arch of glass, blue harbour
a boat at single anchor, sails furled
Water slides down my neck to the sun-hardened towel… Read full post »
Men's pajama pants and tshirts so old they have holes in them. When the holes get so big you don't know where to put your arm, it's time to throw away the tee. Puh--ritty!
