The recent scandal in the Veteran's Administration is discouraging. They are accused of "cooking the books" on statistics about wait time to get help. The bog of government administration of programs is universal. In India the files were piled up all around the wall in… Read full post »
The fire storm is coming to an end now. I saw a firenado, black ash and fire trucks. When that hot wind started blowing it was exhilarating until it got deadly and then we rode the waves of fear. A good storm all in all and I am ready for… Read full post »
I always wanted to be a cub reporter.
The carport roof of the house next door just blew off into a big Oak tree. I was over there trying to hold it down after I called the manager but when I went back to get a rope it blew… Read full post »
Just a small change in my routine to take care of my mom and I think it will help. I hired the lady who cleans for her once a month to be with her once a week. They can wash windows, go shopping at Walmart, work in the yard etc.… Read full post »
What a wonderful Mother's Day conversation with my daughter this weekend. We went over all the drunken teenager stories from her youth and I finally got to iron out lots of details that I had wondered about. It all starts to make sense now how mild the crazy situations were really… Read full post »
A small dot appeared in my vision as I was driving back from the beach two days ago. I thought it was a strand of hair caught in my eyelash and tried to wipe it away as I navigated through the Southern Californian traffic crunch. It wouldn't go away. It… Read full post »
I woke up thinking how messed up everyone I know has become, mourning for a world that is kinder and makes more sense. When I heard about the girls taken from a modern Western School in Nigeria I was horrified of course. However there is a part of my brain… Read full post »
What a grand adventure to go explore the new library downtown! We took the trolley down into this rapidly growing part of town and walked into an amazing building. I was a little disappointed that the… Read full post »
First thing in the morning she heads outside for a puff which is the worst time to inhale that dam smoke. We tried exercising, meditating and waiting just five minutes but that only lasted one day. She tells me it is not a spiritual, emotional or character flaw, she is… Read full post »
Four AM is the witching hour and around here the winds are fiercely beating against the house and setting everything in motion including my emotions. The banging and wooshing, stirring and swirling woke me up in a turmoil of dreams and worries about money, sex, family and questions of imm… Read full post »
As comforting as a bed of Petunias surrounded by geraniums, this book gave me some much needed hope.
Trying to stay upright every day isn't easy. I try to balance my hedonistic side with my practical side. Sometimes one or the other gets out of wack and I get anxious. I think it is all in defining which is which.
I spend as many days as I can… Read full post »
Whew, what a day! My tower HP computer has been making awful sounds for a long time now and this morning it just quit. I don't even want to try to fix it as I have been waiting for it to hit the dust so I could get a laptop. I can't believe I… Read full post »
We were blown away by this movie. I will not be spoiling much by writing about it because you will need all the help you can get to understand it. My daughter and I saw it in an empty theater on IMAX and it was so fun to talk thru… Read full post »
I finally got a couple roses to play with and it was a joy. I took lots of photos and then was actua… Read full post »
Apparently the Duggard children cannot do frontal hugs. They are a tv Evangelical family with a reality show about their 19 children. They can only do side hugs in the beginning of a relationship. There are many strange customs all over the world involved in how people… Read full post »
When I was a little girl I went to a wonderful drawing class in Seattle. I remember drawing a Log Cabin Syrup bottle that was very realistic. My mother rued the day she sent me there because now she thinks artists are crazy.
In High School my Art… Read full post »

In the Rose Garden there were a couple ladies decapitating the roses and throwing the heads into a wheelbarrow. It sounded like a photo op to me but the gruesome sight has stayed with me and the horror of decay and death haunt us all.
