The Big Tree Was Cut Down Today

                The big tree had to come down in the back of my house today.  It had to be today.  Of course it did.  It was time.  The tree was so big because it had tapped into the sewer system.&nRead full post »

Love Stuff

                     I am getting all tangled up in this Love stuff.  It has always been confused with lust in my book and I like it that way.  So many different kinds… Read full post »

I'm Proud of My Mom Today

    After many false starts, disinterest and angst, my mom did her videotaped interview with the Navy Nurse Corps today and nailed it. I was so proud of her excellent memory for all the dark and light moments of her career as a Navy Nurse.Read full post »

Something Real


Pounding and pounded all around the circle

The day found me happy and connected

Making real touch and hearing real drums

Knowing that my aloneness

Is a human response to the universe

We all need to feel the realness sometimes.

 Magician Pendragon says, "Illusion IS reality".  I hadn't thought of it that way.  I thought there was illusion and then there was reality.  Now I can see that the two might be equal. 

   I was looking at clouds today.  Their illusions were reflected in the w… Read full post »

I love twerking!  When I first saw students doing the twerk I was amazed that they could do it physically and fascinated at all the fuss.   Now a principal has canceled a homecoming dance because she can't control the twerking.   Ha!  She wants students to face each… Read full post »

Conquering a Toothache

   Oh, the agony of a toothache!!  There is nothing quite like that dull pain that ebbs and flows inside your head until you are groaning and moaning, all bent over and pleading for mercy.  It humbles you.

    For the last two nites I have battled this ache in my… Read full post »

Little Old Lady

  She scurried up to me on my evening walk with a purpose in her step.  I listened to her high British accent for a bit wondering what she had on her mind and soon I knew.  She wanted to know if I would like a visitor in the evenings.

I'm Not Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

  I am afraid that the copyright people will come and take me away if I quote some of her words without their permission.  So I have been thinking what it would be like to duplicate her stream of consciousness writing style with my own mind wanderings.  I think she wandered… Read full post »

Staying Beneath the Radar

   Staying beneath the radar is a nice thing to do.   Just settle in below the turmoil and spy glasses.  There will always be people who judge you so if you just ignore that and go about your business beneath the radar you can be true to yourself.

  When I was in Alaska in a little village a man told the school that he didn't want his child to read any books where the animals were talking like humans.  I knew him to be a man of the wilderness and I could see his point but the school… Read full post »

Weather Events


     A hurricane is close by and so is an earthquake. 

     Come on and stir my world! 

     Woosh... they moved through and now it is quiet.

     I like the heavy winds and all the shaking.

I Just Want to Play in the Clouds









Floating awhile in the pool

The clouds don't seem to move

 Until I look away and then

 I have to grab the camera

 and record the changes.


Everything is changing all the time

Foley knew that.

Pathetic Rain Cloud

IMG_0004 - Copy

        What a pathetic attempt at rain!  This little dark cloud was unloading an impotent storm that didn't even make it to the ground.  It makes me miss the deluges of Southeast Alaska where it once rained thirty two inches in one month.  Of… Read full post »

I Saw an Owl!

    The owl swooped low over the field and settled into the Eucalyptus tree.  There was some screeching in the bushes and it seemed like something was being killed.  As I walked over closer I wondered what was going on.

Begging in the Walmart Parking Lot

   I look like I have money because I have a pretty blue car.   I really don't. When I parked in the shade and went into Walmart I didn't expect to spend over fifty dollars but it happens quickly.

Police Action in Ferguson

   Michael Brown took a small package of mini cigars from a convenience store without paying.  He pushed the owner out of the way and swaggered outside.  A couple blocks later the police told him and his friend to quit walking in the street and get on the sidewalk.  They told… Read full post »

Activity Director

    I had my own office in the middle of the Long Term Care wing of our little hospital.  For six years I brought hope and fun to the eighteen or so residents that cycled through that area.  Most entered, never to leave again except on a stretcher to the morgue. … Read full post »

Robin Williams

   It is difficult to believe Robin Williams is gone.  Substance abuse takes a toll and depression is a real thing.  At 63 with a successful life he was too young to go.  It rocks the foundation of all I believe to contemplate his death.  It just doesn't seem fair.
