Keeping House

    My mother's generation was into homemaking big time and it was all consuming.  I see it almost as the Stepford Wives club.  All clean, all the time.  Home decorating and creating the illusion of order made everyone feel safe and content.  The extreme clean was p… Read full post »

The Emotional Olympics

 I am so bored with the Olympics.  Ever since the Greeks started the competition, oogling at the perfect bodies doing amazing things, it has been missing something. 

  I propose an Emotional Olympics.  How much stress can you take?  There could be trials where people fa… Read full post »

Miserable Neighbors

In the middle of the nite a giant pepper tree fell on someone's house.  It didn't hurt the house but smashed a big tool chest full of tools and covered the back porch with its foliage. 

   Thus began the giant clean up and a plea to his neighbors who… Read full post »

Men Who Want to be Women

   In some of the online dating I have done there have been quite a few men who want to BE women.  That is why I think it is so important we make sexual freedom real and respect the inner person in all of us and take away the shame.  There… Read full post »

Roaming Hands

  When I was a young teen my mother and I took a ship ride to the Philipines.  Since we lived on Guam where my Dad worked for the military these trips on big Navy cruisers were cheap and frequent.  One nite a young male teen befriended me and asked if… Read full post »

Dreamers and Doers

  The guy I bought my car from has money.  He said he knew from an early age that he was a "doer".  Always flush and with a bevy of girls he would parade around in front of his brother who he called a "dreamer".  I didn't tell him I am… Read full post »

  In a nearby country park there is a tree with boulders strategically placed under its limbs as if someone planned for it to be a place to take haven from the storms of life.   A harbor, manmade but natural, where someone like me could find a bit of comfort.

  I was doing pretty well reading the book "Ethics for the New Millennium" by the Dalai Lama until I read this sentence..."indulgence in sensual pleasure is nothing but a gateway to suffering."

Insurance Plans Suck

Painting over an old painting...

   It is a time honored tradition for artists to paint one painting on top of another.  Art restorers go to work finding the layers on the masterpieces and have computer software that does it expertly now.  I had a painting  of a waterfall and I changed the seasons on it… Read full post »

Spin Cycle

I won't forget the day

We made love while

 Doing four loads of laundry.


The spin cycle spun so long!

We outlasted it and went on

Into the floaty dryer noises.


The snaps gave random pings.

From now on I will think of you

Whenever I do a load.… Read full post »

The Tale of My Little Car.
