- I had a blog on 360 (yahoo)..then moved to Multiply when they crashed and burned. Now am dabbling in Facebook. None of it is really what I want. Still working on a Bio--work in progress. Me, not the description.

Years ago I read Marcus Bach's "I, Monty" ... in which he asks " Do you suppose a caterpillar knows it's future lies in butterflies?"
Thinking about that inspired this..metaphorically looking for my own place in my own future.
Caterpillar in the field… Read full post »
I was always a "goody two shoes". I never broke the rules, always respected authority, and went out of my way to brown-nose my teachers. No, really, this isn't a lead in to a joke. I was. That was me. I was obnoxious. Why that was, is a completely different blog,… Read full post »
This is not my story. However, since it unfolded in public, it became the property of all who followed it.
It began a couple of years ago on Multiply, a social/blogsite where many found homes after Yahoo 360 .
I was only peripherally aware, at first, that there was an… Read full post »
I think this one speaks for itself
Body And Mind
You’ve entered my mind and
Overtaken my soul so softly,
So stealthily, that I did not notice.
I felt no need to examine my
Nor bare my feelings to myself
Until the time without you was spent
Dreaming of the moments near you,
And I c… Read full post »
Keith Olberman interviewed Republican Congressman Mark DeMoss last night on the subject of his great failure. DeMoss simply asked every member of congress, and every state governer to be civil with regard to their political and personal dealings. Civil. Isn't that what we teach our… Read full post »
There is a point, when you are falling in love, where you feel the fall begin, and are powerless to stop it. Whether it is wise, whether it is good, makes no difference. It is happening, and all you can do is be there.
I love your smile,… Read full post »
...and now I am looking toward my 60th.
It's not a joke. I did throw myself a surprise birthday party. I wrote out invitations, described what I was doing, where I would be and when, and asked not to have anyone at all contact me. Just show up.… Read full post »
Yesterday she agitated me so much I left the gym well before my workout was completed. Today I tried to make her sit quietly while I organized the chaos of tax papers and receipts, but she continues to act up. Right now, as I type, she is nagging me for a… Read full post »
I joined OS, coincidentally, on the day I learned I was a victim of identity theft. My first three blogs were written in a state of shock and disbelief. I resort to a strange kind of humor under that kind of stress..sort of a flight of ideas, tongue in cheek, say… Read full post »
In my "extreme" youth, everything was drama..everything was unfiltered..it all weighed the same. And love was new. Separation was an abyss. This is a writing from a time..the first time.. that I did not plunge into that abyss. It was a revelation.
LOVING YOU IN MY MIND
Mom has been home with me a lot this week. She had something called surgery, so she didn't go to work. It was fun having her here to teach me stuff. I know a lot of words now. My brothers help teach me too. Mom will tell them to do something,… Read full post »
But first, the inevitable explanation..I don't make GOOD friends easily- but some years ago a person came into my life who just seemed to fit naturally. That is rare, and I "went" with it. This was a person with many issues, much heavy personal baggage. It seemed, ultimately, that I… Read full post »
My name is Drea, and I am a 10 week old labrador retriever. I don't know what that means, but evidently I am going to grow up to be much bigger, because people keep saying so. All I know is that right now I have a new home and 2 new… Read full post »
I retired early in order to pursue more than just the daily work grind before my health gave out. I wanted to travel. I wanted to volunteer, I wanted to give something back to-- someone-something..but the decision was difficult. Hard to travel and do all that. But the one thin… Read full post »
“Lend money to an enemy, and thou will gain him, to a friend and thou will lose him.” Benjamin Franklin
I can’t recall ever lending money to an enemy..nor can I think why I might do so. But I can say I have lent money to friends, and my score on… Read full post »
Response to Heidibeth's Open Call.
Fragrant rain from tearful sky
Sad soul – dark clouds
Greet the day
Anger creeps in, edging fear
Boiling, erupts, then
Quiets once again
Sinful, decadent delight
The melting cone

Humor is often used as a weapon--offensive OR defensive.. It comes in all forms- gentle, coaxing, witty, double entendre, slapstick, in your face, cynical, sarcastic, teasing, visual, audio, pull my finger, pun, play on words, ethnic, political, morbid, juvenile..oh it goes on.

It's a popular expression.."It is--what it is". What could be more true? I say it myself, in an effort to force myself to stop attempting to take control of something I have no power over. Long ago I stopped saying "If only..." and "But if..." When it rains on your… Read full post »
I am always asked why I don't publish more of my poetry. Honestly, it's because I always have to overthink it first. I have to tell you why it was written how I was feeling, blah blah. This one is pretty self explanatory. My mother was dying--and I knew it. I… Read full post »
Dave asked for poetry- a poetic prediction set in the future--100 years from now..what will the world be like. I sort of chose --how one person would feel about what the world is like..So here is future man--still alive through science--:

I was doing a "positive thinking" thing the other day, and the exercise was to describe-in a fair amount of detail- your perfect day. How would a perfect day look in your life.? It wasn't supposed to be completely outlandish - like- I would win the lottery, buy everything I want… Read full post »
The eyes, I knew, I’d seen before.
I remembered them so well;
Yet could not put a face to them,
Nor time - nor place could tell.
