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 »
Is it a dam Roller Coaster
Careening out of control
Turning upside down in a minute
And then right side up again?
Hang on. I can't! I fall off and I don't even care.
It is those dam emotions. Eros and Pathos.
Swirling in and out of me and… Read full post »
Gagging, I forced myself to watch Cheney and his daughter on that Megan's show on Fox. They sat there together and locked horns against Obama and when the final question by Megan was "Is the President Dangerous?" they both said a resounding "yes".
I can't s… Read full post »
Cannery Row with Nick Nolte and Debra Winger. Hot.
Taking my time … Read full post »
A new sparkle in the sun caught my eye in the empty parking lot. I had to get closer for an inspection as my mother has taught me that sparkly things are interesting and worth noticing. She is fascinated with fancy carlights, mirrors on mobiles… Read full post »
I did it! I got wet gradually and oh, so carefully waded in deeper as the waves crashed over me. I turned sideways when the first ones hit, standing my ground like a soldier. I splashed a little of the cold water on my arms to get ready for… Read full post »
There was a scene in the movie "Jobs" when he was yelling at his team of geeks to put a choice of fonts on the menu. They thought he was crazy. He had the vision of computers for personal use and it exploded into what we have today and beyond. … Read full post »
There is a little girl who has just moved into my neighborhood. She has already knocked on the door here twice looking for someone with a tiny bit of frantic worry in her voice. I've seen her in frilly pink dresses with a crown on. Mostly I think she just wants… Read full post »
I have had many jobs in crazy places. Really. Not just regular jobs where everyone seems crazy but they pretend that things are fine and back stabbing is the norm. In a true place where crazy people live there are stories. We try to lump all crazy peop… Read full post »
Hershey is sueing Colorado and Washington edible cannabis manufactures over the fact that their pot candy brands look too much like the Hershey brands. This seems related to the Maureen Dowd article about how she ate a whole marijuana "candy" bar that was meant for sixteen servings inste… Read full post »
In my neighborhood the kids used to camp in the backyard in tents and tell stories by flashlights way into the night . I was one of the younger kids so they kept it cleaner for me but scary was for everyone. "The Hand" was the most vivid for me… Read full post »
I am hooked on watching the tv show "Louie". Creative genius is such a wonderful thing and he is totally unique. His comedy is deep and dark with lots of twists in a slow moving storyline. There are so many memorable characters that defy sanity and yet I could relate to… Read full post »
I guess it is important to go beyond pedestrian writing and get to the meat of life. There are so many "I's" in my posts that I have to make a conscious effort to eliminate or change them to something outside myself. Since I write from such a quiet place it… Read full post »
What fun to have a laptop that can sit on my garden table. The sun is in the late afternoon mode with a hint of summertime. Spring has not yet left us here in the burned Southern California landscape. There are a few green sprigs left but they are hard… Read full post »
Filling out the questions on the 2014 census was invasive. I feel like I have been probed. I am so glad I have not done anything wrong but I feel like a criminal. Where do I live? how many bedrooms?running water? where do you get your money? do you have… Read full post »
What a wild ride begins when you buy your first blood pressure cuff. We had to get an extra large one for my friend and then we watched and charted all the numbers. It was scary.
My mother panicked when she saw her blood pressure going up and do… Read full post »
I loved coloring on all the levels of the graphs the teachers mimeographed for us in grade school to show what we should be eating. The little drawings of bread, fruit and veges plus meat and eggs seemed so right and comforting. I never really gave it much thought but pe… Read full post »
There used to be lots of Good News Sunday posts on Open. I miss the old days but life goes on and on, spiraling out so that Good News Sundays are not lost. I am always looking for good news which is usually mixed in with the bad news. It is… Read full post »
I am reading the perfect book at the perfect time in the perfect setting. Thomas Moore's book "The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life" has arrived magically in my life and taken me to a calm, happy place.
I love this line in the book..."I would rather be a dysfunctional soul… Read full post »
Dealing with my mom is like wrangling a snapping turtle out of the mud on the banks of an Indiana river. She snaps at me frequently nowdays and is pissed that I hired someone to help her for three hours a week. "It is too soon to hire someone." … Read full post »
