I've had Two Boyfriends Die

  Lonely Chair


  Vasya met me at the Unitarian Church in the University District in Seattle.   He was my friend and we became lovers too in an odd fashion.  I don't remember much about the physical things we did. 

   I do remember that he was a Virgo… Read full post »

Old California Hippie Music

   Oh So many breezy afternoons spent stoned on the terrace listening to this song.  I just lets the sunshine into your soul.  Makes me want to fly and be free.
Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks entertained me for hours in the grey old… Read full post »

"Fringe" tv show is blowing my mind!

I have watched "Fringe" for many years now and it never fails to deliver a mind blowing episode.   The scripts have introduced me to concepts that I could never have imagined myself.

Valentine of the Universe/OS Fiction


       There was a bit of matter that had formed from the collision of two stars in the far reaches of the universe.  That bit condensed into a ball and it hurtled thru space until it collected quite a bit of debris on it's surface. … Read full post »

Smoking a Bowl

  The first time I smoked Pot I loved it.  We were all in the basement apartment of my college friend.  We had purchased a half full baggie of primo weed on the University Avenue for twelve dollars.  Someone passed me a joint as I was sitting in front of the… Read full post »

Resisting Arrest

   The rain clouds let loose with a downpour and I poked my head out to see the wonder of it all.  Rain is so rare here.  I wasn't surprised to see two cop cars hastily pulled up in the road and people milling about in the house next door.  They… Read full post »

Life Becomes Just Hugs and Handshakes

  The Fear is palpable a the Memory Center.  Our sunny patient who was usually smiling and cute is getting tired.  The hailstorms that inhabit her brain are crashing loudly against her skull now.  Everyday I see them ravishing her soul and taking the life from her young body. … Read full post »

Movie to Blow My Mind..."Chronicles"

  I was looking for a movie after work.  I found myself at the Giant Mall and there was only one movie that I could walk into right that minute.  "Chronicles".  I asked the fellow selling tickets if it was any good.  

   "Well it is about some people… Read full post »

The Other Side of Up

  Any creative endeavor has a down side.

  You put up your creations, give your all, try.


   Then the self incriminations appear.

   Dirty and shakey.  You aren't good enough.


   What you make falls apart and stains your hands.

The Rich Get Richer

  I have to admit that I want our former boss to fail.  He is OCD and driven.   He tries very hard to treat all the people who work for him fairly but in the end it is his business and fancy vacations that he values most.  I wish for his… Read full post »

Building Stucco Hearts

     Heart work

     I am fortunate to have a wonderful backyard to create Art work in.  I bought a piece of cement board on sale for two dollars because it was damaged and hauled it back here to cut it up into hearts. I don't have the urge to blowtorch… Read full post »

"The Cart"/OS Fiction Club


    It had always been my place to walk under the family cart on long journeys.  Aunt Helen could not stand dog hair and there was literally no room in the cart for me anyway.  It was good exercise on the short runs we made around town and my place… Read full post »

Creative Fallout

  There are some people who get in a zone and work themselves hard to get something done.  Creative people who like to make things happen can sometimes get exhausted and forget that there is a whole world out there besides what they are doing.   It is some sort of zombie… Read full post »

My Sunbeam!

  I'm enamoured with the sunbeam that comes onto my bed every morning if the sun is out which is almost everyday here in Southern California.  The smiles and fun this beam gives me just beg to be recorded and I grab my camera, sketchbook and my picnik website to make… Read full post »

Why Call the Police?

   The balmy Southern California evening was the perfect time for another police drama next door.  I jumped when I heard the screaming and when I went to my peeking out window I saw two police cars pulled up and a lady inside one of the cars was crying loudly.

Jan Brewer's Finger

   In Business Week I noticed this little bit of news about Gov. Jan Brewer pointing her finger at President Obama and making the sale of her book skyrocket.  I think that must be the way to make lots of money. I guess many people are interested in what she has… Read full post »

The Movie "The Artist" is Just Right



  I took my 93 year old mom to see "The Artist" today.  I was very impressed with the technical purity of the film.  Mom didn't see how this younger generation would understand it.  I told her it was about honoring history.  A good film maker needs to… Read full post »

  Papaya 2

  Plain food.  I have found a source of Mexican Papaya that is addictive.  It is $1.99 a pound and you get a great big Papaya.  Some people say this large Mexican variety is not as tasty as the smaller ones but I just love how big it is… Read full post »

Window Dressing/OS Fiction

"You bought what with your last dollars?!  Fabric?"  Mama was furious and Dad had to look away. "You are a capricious girl who is going to be the ruin of us.  We are barely surviving as it is.  Oh lordy."

The Bees are Back and Busy


Whenever I see a bee I worry

Especially when a bee flys by all alone.

I ask if he is lost or confused.

I know that happens.


So when I heard the hummmmm and looked up

I was so happy to see hundreds of bees.

What About My Heart?

  I had a physical this week.  A very nice doctor looked into my ears and eyes.   He had me balance on one foot and he listened to me breath.  He told me to eat more fiber and have a Woman's exam, you know, of the breasts and uterus.  But he… Read full post »
