As we sat in the little restaurant eating the delicious holiday food I noticed a little lady with a black kerchief and apron bring a plate and sit at a little table in the corner. She looked exhausted with eyes glazed over and a slump to her shoulders that told… Read full post »
There were dysfunctional Thanksgivings that occured after my divorce that were in stark contrast to the ones when I was married which were at my in laws' house and featured excellent, classic home cooking. Wonderfully giant pot… Read full post »
Watering my Soul
Thanksgiving for the ones who are still here,

It is a constant… Read full post »
I used to live in the neighborhood where the Turkey Vultures seem to roost. I think someone on the hill top feeds and houses them. Today when I was getting my oil changed I saw more Turkey Vultures than I ever have.
How much stress can I take?
Bring it on.
Anger? I have lots of it.
Simmering just beneath the surface.
When I worked at the hospital
I used to say..."Bring it on!"
What have you got?
Cancer, death, insanity?
Let's see it.
I love to go for walks and find things to report on. Pampas Grass is very special and this is the fine plant I found on my walk yesterday.
I learned Pampas Grass… Read full post »
I welcomed Oggi on his first visit to the Center and gave him a picture to color. There were about twelve other people at the tables coloring. He looked at it very carefully.
"You want me to color this?"… Read full post »
I found the perfect sketchbook that fits in the back of my pants under my jacket so I can take it out into the fields. The pages are thick and creamy. I was excited to try it out and I started in the living room.
The radiator caught my attention and… Read full post »
What a brave reporter on MSNBC to be going into Syria to see the street fighting in Kobani on the Turkish border where ISIL controls fifty percent of the town. I love the women warriors who show him how they have burrowed into the streets and buildings to keep out… Read full post »

I go to Dog Beach to get happy. After a tearful morning at the cemetery where I mourned my Dad I was ready to just sit in my little folding beach chair, draw and watch the dogs be happy. It usually uplifts me.
A pudgy, middle aged fellow… Read full post »
I conquered the first when I heard I had high cholesterol. No more packages of cookies to tempt me in my cupboards. I hear them call my name and I can't rest until the package is empty which is usually a day after I buy… Read full post »
It seems I should have replaced the small covering over my car's door handle when it went missing. Oh well, I thought, I don't care how it looks. It is probably going to cost over fifty dollars and the door still works.… Read full post »
In the cool of the evening I was taking a walk around the neighborhood enjoying the sound of the crickets down by the creek and peeking into windows that hadn't shutt… Read full post »
What a great way to start a day! I got a letter from Rosigami with the Doodle project in the envelope and it inspired me to create. I have been like a slug around here just reading and eating chocolates so today was very special and I already did one… Read full post »
My Dad used to call it "going through the tunnel" and I can feel it starting now. The nights are so long and dark and it is getting cold. In Alaska we called it "Cabin Fever" time and the board games came out along with… Read full post »
I just scanned the political posts of Open and I wouldn't touch any of them with a ten foot pole. The vitriol seeps through the comments and I don't see any way that people can agre… Read full post »
OMG spoiler alert The survivors of the zombie apocalypse are the scary part. There are so many scenarios that involve religion, government and the police. Power struggles that are all about basic survival. This season promises to touch on all the various ways people do w… Read full post »
There are rarely clear lines and boundaries between things in life. I was so excited to put up Halloween decorations on October first and now I am equally excited to take them down on November 1. Snowflakes and turkey feathers surround me now. On December 1 the Christmas light… Read full post »
Halloween is about the darkness. The winter season when the sun is scarce and humanity wants to understand what it means to survive the dark times. There can be darkness on a beautiful, sunny day too and that is called depression.… Read full post »
The tall man in the robes with the black headband was new in the Mosul and Amad was fascinated with him. The man was with two other men who seemed to be striding thru the neighborhood with a confidence Amad had never seen. … Read full post »
