Full Moons Drive Me Cra

  "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.

Greedy Sentences

   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 »

  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 »

The Rich Are Getting Richer...

   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 »

All the Lonely People

   "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 »

I Don't Remember Where I Was...

   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 »

Superstorms and my Mom
