Once upon a time there was no TIME. Humans went about their daily tasks without a watch or a calendar. The idea of time was not isolated from the weather and the sun. You needed to get somewhere safe when it got dark and when the sun shone you could move… Read full post »
On Christmas Day my mom and I went to the community pool at her mobile home park. It is a glorious place and the sun made it beautiful on this winter holiday. There was another couple in lounge chairs at poolside but they were reading and not too friendly. … Read full post »
I loved the Seth books by Jane Roberts when I was in college in the 1960's and trying to figure out the nature of reality. She was channeling Seth who had lived many lives and had lots… Read full post »
This area has a blight on the Oak trees. I live in a place called Alpine Oaks so the trees are very important here. They are shelter from the afternoon sun and home to many birds. The nuts fall and are crunched by the cars and many animals… Read full post »
I can almost see through walls.
Transparency shifts into my awareness.
Someday our concepts of Time and Space
The world that we thought we knew so well
Will shimmer and shift.
We will be in a new age of openness,
It will be like dying… Read full post »
Lately when I leave the house I say, "Goodbye, everything. Thanks for being here and part of my life. I'll be back soon."
And when I return I say, "Hi, House. I'm back. How is everything? So glad to see you all again."
I wander around th… Read full post »
It started after she worked for Bell Telephone Company. Every year on her birthday and again at Christmas Christine would receive a card. It was never signed with a name but it said 'Love!' She had moved three times since she first started getting the cards and she was… Read full post »

My mother says she rues the day she sent me to the University. I came out with ideas and a wildness that she cannot understand. However in the grand scheme of things that five years I spent on the campus was one of the best segments of my life.
All the leaves are gone except for a touch of green and that is the Mistletoe. It makes me smile except when I think about it being a parasite that feeds on the tree. However it doesn't seem to be taking over these trees. It nestles in the bare… Read full post »
"Hugo" a movie by Martin Scorcese captured my heart. It is a little dark in the beginning but the middle has some old movie footag… Read full post »
Teeth grinding, neck crunching, intestine twisting and finger biting all combine to show me that my body is under stress. Driving on the freeways of Southern California is part of it, dealing with my aging Mom and the death of my boyfriend which plunged me into poverty have combin… Read full post »
In my short story this weekend some of the comments suggested that the main character could use some more details. I think I don't like to make my stories too long to burden my readers and that is why I skimp on character development. I think I could use some… Read full post »
There is a place to go the second Saturday of every month where a tiny street in the city is transformed into an Art Walk.
I had to laugh at these Christmas trees decorated with… Read full post »
I stumbled upon this great site because I follow Ziffy Zarf who plays the old time Blues. He was playing lots of working songs with Blindboink Parham. Lots of amazing images and good music.

We enjoyed the show! I walked down into the old theater in the heart of Palm Springs and it was like entering a bygone era. The glitzy zip was exhilarating. Mom hung onto my arm as we made our way into the crowded thea… Read full post »
All the Qtips and my mom crammed into a bus tour to Palm Springs. We were on the bus about three hours each way and saw the Fabulous Follies. I don't regret a minute of the day but it was hard to be on that bus so long. I took… Read full post »
I'm just glad the crowds were peaceful. No fights and all joy. There were a few spoiled kids and free hot cider, hot chocolate and cookies at the community center under an almost full moon. It was very dark in this little town.

You have to have experiences so that you have something to write about and a place to write from in your soul. My soul has been doing some growing this weekend and Im glad to report I have lots of stories as a result. It has also been doing some… Read full post »
The Mountain Bar was one of her favorite candies. She had a stash of them in her drawer at work just like Detective Brenda on the tv show 'The Closer' who loves her 'Moon Pies'. It was no one's business but her own that she had a craving for sweets. … Read full post »
At 9am a car pulls up in the driveway and two teenage boys get out and knock on my neighbor's door. They peer into the window and eventually her head pokes out. She is back from jail now, no car in the garage and the string of these kinds of… Read full post »
