I've been reading since aged 5 like many here and being born before TV was common or maybe even invented--which was of course a boon to our generation, those of us who came of age in the 50-60's so this open call for 10 favorite books is one I find really… Read full post »
Dear Friends at Open Salon,
It's amazing how addictive this place is until you, which means me, are in a very different place with motivations that keep you working or looking outside. These are the first two hours I have alone and so have time to write or post or whatever… Read full post »
So I will return to OS in a few days. Or a bit later. Just seemed a good way to explain why I can't respond to blogs at the moment. What the hell is it with Jet Lag? and why does it feel so awful. Rhetorical questions. love to all here,… Read full post »
FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING

I'm putting on Bobby Mc Farrin whose music brings that first meeting back, to get in the mood because I owe those who read the first this 2nd. Here goes:
At the time of Heath's death, announced officially at 3: 36--January 22nd, '08 I was in South Beach, Florida while my 'gr… Read full post »
I have been here a short time. But it does not feel short. It will not keep
up this way, the way I come downstairs and say to John, I'm off to school.
Because I feel like OS is an organizing principle, like going to school
And how we… Read full post »
Two strangers on a beach:
"The fire next time," he says.
Walking, cloak extended,
The angry man does spit
And then he spits again.
Racing after him, I say… Read full post »

Dear wendy woman,
I told you then --that you have NO clue what awaits you. You will live so many lives that you will hardly remember me. That's okay, as the worst is over, also some of the best.
I cannot believe how much you've changed. Back when we were… Read full post »
I bet Kyle isn't the only Feb 26th, but here goes:
THE DAY OF AROUSAL (hey, WO here, I'm just typing from a book)
Those born on Feb 26th have a great capacity to arouse others emotionally and intellectually. You are so attuned to others and their sensitivities that you often… Read full post »
Feb 24th which was mine is The Day of Sacrifice, and we are said to be giving, open and accepting, but also, static and demanding. We live for a higher cause or for love, the former is highly recommended.
Feb 25th: The Day of the HIGHER CAUSE
--strengths are Faithful, Devotional… Read full post »

Tomorrow I'll address we who are having birthdays soon. Here on OS there are quite a few of us. So stay tuned.
Hi Open Salon Friends:
This is a true story, sad and weird. My friend of 30 years John and I had long planned this trip via International Living which I wrote a post about. John is a financial genius and I'm pretty good with reading people. So he flew all the way from… Read full post »
Something about flying makes for brain changes. I am sure of this because on the ground I don't love reading the New Yorker all the way through. Up in the air, every single article is fascinating and I remember what I've read and I read far more slowly than on the ground. &nb… Read full post »
I labored yesterday and today for hours to write pt. 2 and pt.3 of the adoption story. It's hard to do because the full story is 12 pages and I tried cutting it this way and that, but I couldn't do it.
The gist of it is how I think… Read full post »
The other mother hangs between us, like a phantom limb. Sometimes she materializes as tonight in Jerusalem, during a class on Israeli-Palestinian relations. I cannot take my eyes off the dark-skinned girl, her jet black hair. She of the longest eye-lashes, naturally curled like the child's, with… Read full post »
Remember how often many of us threatened to leave the USA due to Bush, or especially after his second election if that was a real one?
