Feeling bad that I disturbed them I walked quickly away. I… Read full post »
I want to do some "Lists!". Seems like a good way to organize the Universe. Here are the top five things that come off the top of my head in a stream of consciousness orbit. List #1.
1) Balance is boring. Step to the side a little.

"Make me proud!" Successful activity is very addictive. So you want to be famous? Want to make tons of money!? Then you have to get out there and hustle!

Two old friends and I have been writing emails remembering our times together in the late sixties when we were in college at the University of Washington. We all lived in a dorm style house run by the Russian Language Department where we were encouraged to speak Russian. … Read full post »
It was a typical hot day. The carwash was doing a brisk business and the same injustice that I see at most carwashes was obvious. Everyone was provided some shade except the people doing the finish work on the cars.
It rankles me. There is nothing I… Read full post »

I realized there was something different about this fellow when he stood so still and straight in the garden. He was looking at me. There was something mesmerizing about his wild colors. I got closer.
"Hello," I called my mom on her new captioned telephone. "Can you read what I say?"
"Can you read what I say? I can read."
"Mom, you don't have to read it outloud. I already know what I said."
"oh, then how do… Read full post »
I have been with two fellows who are Gemini's in the recent past. My Dad is a Gemini. He has passed and I wonder if his energy is around to help Mom. "Are you there, Dad? Are these guys your gift to me?"

I can draw a crow from memory. The drawings are kind of cartoony and cute but they can pass for a crow. If I really want to paint a crow I know I should either draw directly from life or lately I have been using Google Images.

I am trying to make an effort to meet real people and not be satisfied with just my cyber friends. It is possible that I have forgotten how much fun interacting with real people can be. However there is no delete button in real life.

On the waterfront here in San Diego there is a group of bronze statues that celebrate the USO tours of Bob Hope to the troops. I remember when he was at his peak. What a sense of humor he had! As you sit among the… Read full post »
Charles had his eye on the virginal Florence for months. He wanted to tie her down and marry her. On the day this photo was taken she believed his intentions were honorable and was swept up in the ceremony to make herself his property.
I should have said "yes". Right away. I hope I see him again because I would have given him my business card and arranged a meeting. He wanted three pedestals to put candles on around his statue of some Saint.
He spent a long time looking for… Read full post »
That is me there with the flat roof and the blue butterfly. The fellow next to me sells something to put on your faucet that gives you hot water in ten seconds. I think they are $300 each. Across from me is the Willow… Read full post »
My mom had a wonderfully peaceful dream it seems. She and I were taken in by a Vietnamese family and they treated her royally. They had two little kids who were always giving her attention and admiring her. We were fed and clean and she was so grateful for their… Read full post »
My mom had been itching to ask me this question. "Why do you make these things if you aren't going to sell them?"
I told her is was because of the ideas. It is creative and one thing leads me to another. If some of the things… Read full post »
Two new Farmer Markets have opened in my little town and they have already greatly enhanced the life here. The food is great and the Art is inspiring. I love the jewelry and the antiques. There was a Christian group selling t shirts with Fight for the… Read full post »
I don't like the sound of this latest development where the United States is going to supply arms to the rebels in Syria because Assad had crossed the line by using chemical weapons.

Anger wells up inside me so suddenly when I am dealing with my 94 year old mother that it overwelms my thoughts. I have been trying to get my mother to read for years but she is stubborn. I bought her a Danielle Steele novel which she used to like… Read full post »
I have been putting some of my art work out in the garden at my mom's house. She is not interested in having any more of it there. Why are you making more of these things? I don't need any more. Sell them.

I felt sorry for my mom when she told me there was no reason to live anymore. I listed her grandkids and great granddaughter. Nope. I suggested places to travel to. Nope. I said just to see my sunny face one more day...Nope. So I felt sorry… Read full post »
