Zanelle's Links


   It was so nice to see Cranky, Designanator and Greg at the OS Holiday party.  I was missing that kind of connection with the people at the top and now that I have some real photos and feel like we had a sip together I am happy to be part… Read full post »

The Gift of Time

I have time now. 

Squandering it like a drunk

I drift thru the days relaxed.


Time to waste

Trickling thru my fingers

I don't realize the value of each second.


Time to see the dawn and play some games

Listen to music and think.

Maybe that is a… Read full post »

Your Brain on CyberLove

   I had a comment on my Second Life post that seemed to question how sensual experiences could be fantastic in cyberspace.  The answer is that the brain is the most powerful sex organ.

Lay Lady Lay

   This song was part of my very first sexual awakenings.  I remember hearing it in my late teens and thinking it was one of the sexiest songs I had ever heard.  It was quite ground breaking in those early sixties.  The raw emotions were not something that had… Read full post »

   My mother called in a panic that the high wind warnings might blow the roof off my little house in the hills east of San Diego.  The news reports warned of 60 mph winds and rain.  I assured her I was fine and went to sleep.  She said she… Read full post »

Avoiding the Local News

    I just had a glimpse of the local news and it overwhelmed me.  I have been on a news fast for about five years now and it is bliss.  This morning in a fast minute I got an earful of attacks by wild dogs, bodies found in the woods and… Read full post »

Weaving Iris Reeds


Who was the first to figure out that reeds make nice woven mats?  I was pruning the dead leaves from my Iris plants and on my way to the trash with them I stopped and started to weave them together.

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

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."

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
