I have felt ecstatic pleasure... recently.
Out of the dark wind arose a man
One touch from him gave me ecstasy.
So now what do I do with that ecstasy?
Keep it in a little box, bringing it out to play
But with what… Read full post »
There is something very erotic about typing with scarlet red on my fingernails. My toes curl under my chair with a blush at the mention of their redness too.
I wish my fingernails were long. So many people glue on extensions and I can see why. It is a… Read full post »
There are certain things that are triggers between my mother and I so today I felt the brunt of our differences about money. She started out our four hours together with stories about her Dad, remembering how he hit her whenever she mouthed off at him. I listened for th… Read full post »
Part of my fascination with the sun setting and rising is the feeling of speed I get when I see how fast the changes happen. Zoooooom.
I don't like this spinning aroun… Read full post »
I'm not sure I want to make Aunt Ruth's Sweet Potato recipe for the holidays. It would involve buying flour, sugar and butter and I haven't done that for a few years now. My cholesterol is too high anyway but I can imagine what it would be if I hadn't… Read full post »
As I was listening to the holiday singing group at the community center I thought about the way Open Salon is like a choir. However I can't quite picture who the OS Choir Conductor is. The group I was listening to had a very effective director. He was charming, passionate… Read full post »
I have had a perfect life so maybe that is why I don't remember much about it. We lived well and as an only child I was spoiled and controlled. I was a child of the fifties in an upscale neighborhood in Seattle. We also lived in Hawaii and Guam… Read full post »
"Cra"...the new way to describe someone who is a little off and not able to take care of themselves. It explains much of the behavior that humans are capable of. "Yep, they are a little cra." That leaves nothing more to say and explains everything.
The full moon drives… Read full post »
I am going to try to be greedy in my writing this morning. Usually I write simple sentences which are like small puddles along a road that define the rain that just happened. The whole ocean is there for me to play with so I am going to make my… Read full post »
Just like a writer going in to add that all important comma to a manuscript, the artist in me went back into the painting I just finished to add a little bit of yellow. In my mind I could not sit in the same room as the painting if I… Read full post »
As I was walking in the nature preserve near my house I overheard two groups of people talking. "Great place! We just discovered it."
"Well, beware of the rattlesnakes come springtime."
Great. I had seen a photo on the we… Read full post »
They tell me to tell you what I really want for Christmas and I have been thinking alot about that. First of all it is hard for me to even write the word Christmas. I want to be able to write Xmas… Read full post »
Our day started with a rainbow at sunrise which seemed a rare good omen.
Miranda was our driver and Donna was the guide. We had a flawless bus trip into the heart of Los Angeles and they deserved the ten dollar tip each that my… Read full post »
Watercoloring outside brings all sorts of new insights into the world.
This is one of my favorite places to go. Usually I am looking for an escape but today I had an hour to kill and I got out my watercolor kit only… Read full post »
I could not believe my eyes when I got to the beach today. At the far end of this exclusive beach at La Jolla Shores near San Diego was a mansion I hadn't noticed before. In an already over the top real estate market this place stands out like a… Read full post »
I was dragging around. Feeling down after my Turkey High. Does it happen every year? This pull into the blackness is powerful stuff and so I got out the holiday lights. Nothing makes… Read full post »
I never thought my paintings would be on the Internet. In the late sixties when I created these paintings there was no access to cyberspace. I wonder what became of these paintings. I imagine they were in the Art… Read full post »
My dad and I had so much fun when I was young. This tidal pool on the island of Guam was our special place to swim. Once my… Read full post »
"Your loneliness says that you've sinned." That refrain from a Leonard Cohen song rings in my ears. There are too many people alone this holiday season for me to see much glory in it. Personal choice apparently brings one to certain points in life and the holidays… Read full post »
The museum in our town here in Southern California is open for two hours once a month. It consists of three little houses preserved for posterity.
The first little house was owned by a lad… Read full post »

So many wonderful words are being written about the passing of JFK and I am stewing on the fact that I don't remember where I was. At almost 17 years old in High School in Seattle I imagine there was an announcement but I don't really have any visual memory… Read full post »
