I passed around pipe cleaners at the picnic table on the patio and it was interesting to see all the ways people responded to them. Some would only take one reluctantly saying they had no imagination. Others created magical shapes and illusions that boggled the mind.&nbs… Read full post »
There are too many airplane crashes to keep up with in the news. I just put my kids on the plane to Hawaii. We know we are very lucky to have the ability to fly anywhere in the world and not have to depend on a covered wagon ride. Travel has… Read full post »
It was so fun to light the candles over and over again on the cement birthday cake. "Again!" "Again" and there was lots of talk about not spitting on the cake although really it is cement so who cares but it is practice for the real thing. We all need… Read full post »
Dealing with mental illness is exhausting. Does everyone have something? Oh, my, it is a parade of maladies that go by me everyday and I always wonder what my particular insanity is?
I am definitely not paranoid. Whatever happens happens.&… Read full post »
"Do you want me to make you something with Play Dough?"
"Make me some medicine."
"How about some food medicine."
"Green spinach, flat on a plate with holes in it."
"Oh, thank you so much. Yum yum yum..."
"Now I'll make you some French fries."
I did a post on what it was like in the University of Washington Art Department in the sixties.
Someone contacted me today from those days who had seen the post and we have many mutual f… Read full post »
I spent the afternoon with my three year old granddaughter. I found myself telling her all the things that I have been thinking about deep down inside myself and hoping that she just takes it all with a grain of salt. Having a grandma like me… Read full post »
When I walked up to get my parked car you were standing there in your security guard uniform staring out at the view. Dreamy. I said “Nice view.”
You turned around and said, “It is now.”
“Oh,” I said, “you mean me.”
“You are a b… Read full post »
Fire! I settled in to watch the show in the safety of America where things like this are taken care of swiftly and efficiently. There was no thought for my safety, just compassion for the valiant firefighters who battle blazes like… Read full post »
Lunacy abounds inside my head.
Sharp white lines stretch over my bed.
Insanity brews, a tempest coming.
Long ago… Read full post »

I was unprepared for how sensual it would be. The long anticipation to see what bloom would come from my rescued orchid plant was worth the wait. Such beauty!
I have waited four years to see this plant flower. I found it on the wind… Read full post »
I have tangled and tangoed with a few married men in my time. Even men who are separated can be a pain because they always have to be doing something with the ex. I am glad my ex remarried. I know I would do whatever he needed if I could… Read full post »
Inhale the weather and let it out. Eat a lobster salad. Life is to be lived where the primitive desires have their way with us. Overwhelmed by modern culture? Just take a slice of ravishment and let yourself go into pleasure. Rub dollar bills al… Read full post »
Some people must actually have lives to live and disappear from online communication especially on weekends and in the summer. What is everyone doing? Going to the beach? Swimming? Laying around just being mellow?
In the winter months there is lots of… Read full post »
He was big and black scurrying away from me up into the vent above the stove. Big and Black with very long legs and an intelligence that was formidable. How could I live with him in that kitchen vent? I wondered how long he had been there before I saw… Read full post »
The Catholic Church has made themselves very visible in Central America and Mexico. Looks like all the kids they encouraged their flocks to make are hungry and scared. Where is the Church now? So many kids are spilling over into America where the ve… Read full post »
So the repression of the female continues and it isn't the Taliban, ISIS or Al Qaeda that is shooting girls in the head for wanting to be free. It is our own right wing politicians who have given women's rights the gunshot of shame. Horrible news from the Supreme Court… Read full post »
He was on Meet the Press this sunday with Hillary and his daughter looking on in the audience. I thought he was charming and just a tad goofy. I have always loved his easy going smarts and it is invigorating to hear him again and imagine… Read full post »

In the ongoing saga of my mother and I, last night was typical. We went to the community luau and had a little fun. All was going well until she spotted Jim moving in on one of the older ladies she knows. Her radar went up and I could see… Read full post »
This painting by Spanish Artist Sorolla from Spain in the late 1800's was ten feet by ten feet. They said it affected the artist so deeply while he was working on it that he was exhausted emotionally and couldn't attempt something like it again.
Day One Met at the great old train station in downtown San Diego. Then off to Seaport Village for a walk and lunch. Zipped down to Ocean Beach to the Dog Beach and watched them all play in the surf. One big Bassett Hound woofed and woofed and woofed. He… Read full post »
No alcohol, music, smoking or feminine liberation. I remember hearing about someone's wedding celebration being gun downed because they played music. No music except when it glorifies the religion like in a chant or something while they are praying five times a day to M… Read full post »
