Zanelle's Links


1)  I am surprised I like the tv show where they follow people who bid on storage units and find out where they sell the items and how much they get for them.  

2)  I am surprised that I like burping and farting.  So many people fight those two bodily… Read full post »

A Special Dinner / OS Fiction Club

  They sat opposite from each other at the simple wooden table they had found for free on the street.  The little room that they shared was swept clean and she had used a rag and a pail of water to wash the floor on her hands and knees.  There were… Read full post »

Insanity and Dancing

  I want to tell you what it is like to lose your mind and still be able to get up and DANCE.  I spent the day before Thanksgiving at the Alzheimer Center with thirteen people who are mentally impaired and we had fun.   Thru the magic of music, games and… Read full post »

Let's Just Let China Take Over

I am so weary of all the conflict in America.  We are at a total gridlock.  We are at a crossroads and the political gamesmanship is repulsive.  The politicians just want to get reelected and cannot compromise to solve our problems right now. There is no transparency in government and… Read full post »

Your Brain Will Throw You Under the Bus

  Brains have a way of getting what they want.  The force that created them is in this world to experience the senses, human contact and intellectual stimulation.  We try to hone and shape the brains of young children and those first years are so important but in the end the… Read full post »

We Think Alike??!!!??

  My mom was telling me about her neighbor who had to move in with his daughter.  I commented that it would be difficult to have to live with your relatives and she didn't seem to hear me correctly.  She said, "Well, you and I agree on so many things."

 They are hanging on for dear life,

 hands gripping the arms of the chair.

 They feel the wind going by,

 faces contorted with the g force.


Spinning and twisting the chair takes a turn.

Old people look like they are just sitting there

When really they are going at… Read full post »

Sketches from the Social Security Office

  If anyone has spent time in the social Security Administration waiting room and at the desks of the people who help you there the images are intense.  A cross section of humanity surrounds you with no escape.  I wanted to take photos but instead I made these little sketches from… Read full post »

I'm Drinking Your Vodka Tonight.

    I had found it under your bathroom sink again.  I found it behind your printer once.  I found it in your file cabinet.  I hated that you hid booze in the house.  Once you poured it out.  Once you let me put it in the cabinet.  Once it killed you.

A Day at the Alzheimer Center

  "Hi, Hi"  It is like greeting my friends to come into this hundred year old house and see the cook who has been there twenty years and then the head nurses, twenty years each, and then the staffer who has worked there about nineteen years.  I needed a part time… Read full post »

  What a barbaric ritual!  Ever since I was a teenager I have drawn a line on my eyes before I leave the house.  A dark black line that makes my eyes pop.  I used to put a little twirl on the outer edge so at least I have toned that… Read full post »

Trouble on the Indian Reservation

I was the trouble.  ME!  This beautiful reservation is near my backyard and I often go over there for a peaceful drive.  Today the blue sky and brown fields stretched out lazily in the sunshine and I spotted an old house crumbling to dust that I thought might be an interesting… Read full post »

10 out of 100 Photos of Fall Leaves


   The first fifty to go were easy to eliminate.  The best one was obvious and can be seen above.  It has a spiral quality and the red color with the swirling blue sky is a great blend.  However then the editing became difficult.  Who gets to be… Read full post »

Three Loud Knocks in the Night

  I awoke with a start.  I had heard them so distinctly.  There loud knocks and it seemed so urgent and upsetting.  I got up and looked around feeling the emptiness of the place here and the silence of the night.  Four AM is the witching hour according to Anne Rice… Read full post »

Tell the Truth - Andy Rooney- Blogger

Andy Rooney said that a writer's job is to tell the truth. I think he must have been one of the first bloggers.  Even in fiction there is a certain truth.  A writer takes every single word and tries to make it ring true.  I am confused about the truth. I… Read full post »

Upsidedown, hovering,

Flitting in and out,

Quotes from the Movie 'Moonstruck'



Loretta, I love you. Not like they
told you love is and I didn't know
this either. But love don't make
things nice, it ruins everything, it
breaks your heart, it makes things a
mess. We're not here to make things
perfect. Snowflakes are perfect. The
stars are perfect. Not us. We a… Read full post »
