Mom passed away Monday night at about 9:20. As I have heard happens often, we went out to dinner. I slept in her hospice room for the past two nights. The night before I tried to follow my breathing with her own, whic… Read full post »
Mom was an Anglophile. I don't know why or when her interest in all things English began. It just always was.
Mom was also a bit agoraphobic. It always took a lot of coaxing and encouragement to get her on the plane… Read full post »
As I slipped my hand in the pocket of the white fluffy robe, the one I left at his house for my weekend visits, something grazed my finger. I reeled back my hand as if it were a poisonous spider . This foreign object did not belong.… Read full post »
No, this is not a post about searching for "Jacob Sugarman", although I just realized that this may garner me a lot of hits. hmm..but seriously, this is not about him.
At a party last night someone mentioned watching this documentary and likened the above "Rodriguez" to Bob Dylan,… Read full post »
Last night I went to see "The Piano Guys" at a funky little theater in Seattle's U District. I first discovered them on You Tube about a year ago. They have their own channel.
According to Wikepedia (!) "The Piano Guys' YouTube channel has over 224 million… Read full post »
Just been "hangin" with my Babes. (17 months old now).
Just thought I'd stick my toe back in here on the shores of Open Salon to see who is still around. I miss this place; I miss being inspired to write something - anything - and I havn't been… Read full post »

I feel like a jilted lover;
Uncared for -
Replaced by another.
I must move on.
I seek happiness
Not too much of a demand.
Just embrace and
Give me a place to stand.
And tell you my deepest thoughts,

It's been exactly 4 months today that I have had anything up on OS. I thought I had given up. I still might have given up, as Our Salon is a wonderful place. Though, I have not been any more motivated to write over there than I am over here these… Read full post »
To end my 3 day Labor Day Weekend, I decided to take a fourth.
We are going for a record here in Seattle, with this being the 48th day in a row with no rain. The driest streak is 51 days, and that was back in 1951.
So, with the… Read full post »
Glad you Agree!
This was my Blue Moon last night.
Driving home from work last night, I thought I would go down to the waterfront, as it was such a beautiful evening and would probably be a beautiful sunset – and who knows how many more… Read full post »
Thanks Simple Shutterbug for the Open Call.
If it weren’t for these Gallery OC’s lately, I wouldn’t be posting anything. And this one is interesting because just last week I was thinking that I havn’t done anything “summery” this summer/… Read full post »
Thanks nilesite for the Challenge. When I think of “Pure energy” in my life (no, this won’t be about babies (really!) I think of the picture that is on top of my Blog.

Consider this a PSA. i just read Jeff Howe's little post
stating that he found links to Amazon.Com & Bluehost on the left side of his home page. Lo & behold, I went to my homepage and there were at least 12 of these links. … Read full post »
After three years of writing on Open Salon, there are some fabulous posts that get buried or posters who are new, or those I just did not discover until much later. I have already discovered some new writers and some great old posts because of Koshersalaami’s Open Call.… Read full post »
Rhododendron macrophyllum is the State Flower of Washington
I suppose one of the benefits to all of our rain is the beauty when the flowers bloom.
They can grow to be quite tall.
Here is a particularly beautiful… Read full post »

THE END OF THE WORLD?

In a number of ways

Their Daddy is a Spurs Fan...can you tell?
(I'm just a baby fan)...can you tell?
That doesn’t sound very long. Three weeks sounds much lengthier, for some reason.
But, 23 days it was. In the glorious sunshine, watching family members disintegrate, with the hope of rising again from the ashes. That would be more appropriate if I were in Phoenix.… Read full post »
Friends from Seattle (yes, I know, that's where I live) but regardless, they were in town, so we spent the day sight-seeing and boy, did I need that.
We went to the Desert Museum.
Fascinating place if you are not from the desert southwest. It was pretty hot/… Read full post »
The curly- ques remind me of the complications of life. The fountain of cleansing and newness.
I can't help but sit here and think of the newness of life back home and the complications of old age down here helping my Mom. She is settling in, one day at a… Read full post »
At the start of the year, I thought that the “Grandma Chronicles” would be a very nice series, seeing as I became a Grandma two days before Christmas. (I KNOW you’ve seen the pictures). Little did I know that what would take over a little over 3 months later would be/… Read full post »
I sit this morning at the airport, awaiting my flight to Tucson. The plan was for me to spend the next 3 weeks with my Mom, as she comes home from the Nursing Home. (See last post for that story). Only thing, she's not going home.
All at the Nursing Home,… Read full post »
