Into the Woods and Out Again

   Sometimes after I deal with my mother all morning I head straight for a movie theater and see a movie without really knowing what is playing.  Pure escape.  Today I stumbled upon "Into the Woods" and was carried away into a make believe story that had epic lesson… Read full post »

State of the Union Address



   Open seems like such a vacumn lately that it is like yelling into a long tube but I know there are still people who care in this place and I do come here for  news and commentary. 

    I am always so startled when I get into… Read full post »

Transforming Into My Opposite

   It occurs to me I could transform into a person who is the opposite of who I am now.  I could turn in my slovenly, dreamy, slightly odd ways and become more aware of details.  I could be different.

    I always said I was the exact opposite of my… Read full post »

A Long, Long Poem

  I listened to the audio book "Seth Speaks"

  These are my notes.


  When I am dead

   will I still be who

   I am now?


  You are alive

 in the midst of many

  small deaths. 


All through your life

your body has… Read full post »

Channeling Spirits

I loved the book Seth Speaks in college.    I had two friends who read it too and we talked endlessly about the way Seth explained reality.  It all made perfect sense to me and I still love to read his words.  Seth was channeled by Jane Roberts and her husband was… Read full post »

Painting Air or Something Like It


  I am wading through jello air lately.  Heavy.  The pure sunshine air that I am used to here is what has inspired me to try to paint Air with a capital A.  Then it got cloudy!  I took a long walk out in the fields and wondered where my… Read full post »

More Letters

    I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to explore my life through this box of letters my friend saved for the last thirty years and just sent to me.  There were a few heavy ones this morning.  We were just moving to the remote Alaskan beach where we would… Read full post »

I was shocked when I met someone who didn't like the music of the Beatles.   There are many people like that and I can understand that music is an individual choice.  I think if you don't like the Beatles and Grateful Dead music it says something about your ability to re… Read full post »

Hayat Boumeddiene, woman on the run.

Hayat Boumeddiene is on the run.  She talked to the wife of one of the brothers who killed the newspaper staff five hundred times.  She is the girlfriend of the man who held the hostages in the kosher café in Paris.  I am wondering who she is and how her story w… Read full post »

The Best Card Yet


     I am about half way through the cards I sent to my friend for the last thirty years. I'm so glad she saved them and sent me the whole box this year.  Sometimes they depress me but today I was uplifted.  The card was… Read full post »

Big Eyes Movie Beware

   She was conned willingly and innocently.  He was a charmer and a liar.  I'm glad I missed the very beginning of the movie because I am sure it would have hit home harder.  She was had.  Right from the beginning he was doing what he did best.  He was a… Read full post »

Two Important Photos

     As I was sitting on a bench by the ritzy La Jolla Shores lifeguard station a family walked by.   The mother was holding the hand of one of the little children and the two others were jumping with joy to get back to the waves.  Nothing unusual there except… Read full post »

Mom, Then and Now

My Sorority Initiation

All the new pledges in my 1966 sorority were taken down into the basement for our initiation into the system. My sorority was based in the South so that may explain a little of what went on but it was standard for all sorority houses too in those days.Read full post »

Living in a Sorority

Standing in line at the "cattle call" was humiliating. I have vivid memories of the sorority living room in 1965 where we all stood in a circle while the Frat boys filed by and shook our hands. The tension in the air wasRead full post »

This is the Mirage Card. I thought it was just a simple sunset reflection but apparently it is a mirage from Death Valley. No water involved at all. Life is full of illusions. As I sift through this box of letters that I sentRead full post »
