Spoiler Alert... I just finished reading The Forest House by Marian Zimmer Bradley. It is a prequel to The Mists of Avalon that she wrote ten years earlier. For the last week I have been immerced in the lore of the forest and the life in Briton as the Romans… Read full post »
This is the face of poverty in America. It is the only photograph in all of my hundreds of albums that shows povert… Read full post »
I had a nice house on my land in Second Life Website. Picasso House. Then I tore it down in about fifteen minutes and created a beautiful garden which just transformed into a Log Cabin House. My creative juices are fired in this atmosphere of no gravity and endless comb… Read full post »
What a wonderful world women inhabit. They chatter and bitch, moan and complain, laugh uproariously and gossip. I love to watch the View and the Talk on television because I like to be in a group of women conversing about anything and everything. They talk fast and inte… Read full post »
My mother in law said...."Keep em sleeping till they go to school." She also said that I bet I wondered what I did with all my time before my kids were in my life. I knew very well what I did and I missed it.

Goodwill is big business and I am glad, I think. They took over the Purple Heart Thrift store in my mom's town and shaped it into a quality store where people can find amazing things. They also have a job training program and the stores are clean and organized.&nb… Read full post »
When I was a senior at Chief Sealth High School in Seattle in the sixties I was picked to go to a conference in the San Juan Islands called "Freedom and Responsibility". I was excited to go because David Pistoreasy was picked too and I thought he was cool. We… Read full post »
The spirit I have received from posts on Facebook inspires me. The last half hour I have listened to a chant that someone posted and it calmed me.
I have watched an adorable cat nuzzling with a dolphin and a little baby playing in puddles while… Read full post »
We went through the drive in window of the fancy new Chic Filet here in Santee, California. My mom and I marveled at the fancy menu and the double order windows. There was a long line.
An In & Out hamburger place just opened across the parking lot. … Read full post »
There comes a time when driving becomes dangerous for an older person. I remember a lady whose husband with Alzheimer Disease demanded the keys and she gave them to him. He drove to the end of the driveway and stayed there all morning. Then he backed the car into… Read full post »
Based on the classic photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square when the end of WWII was announced, the kissing statue has a place of honor in San Diego harbor. It is officially called "Unconditional Surrender."
My mother loves the statue as… Read full post »
My friends from thirty five years ago just left after a great visit. They are off in their rv to continue their qwest for sunshine and now they are on their way back to Alaska where they have some remote cabins.

When I lived in Alaska part of the time we lived in very remote places only accessible by float planes. The first place we lived was Tenakee Hot Springs where there were three flights a week and it took about forty minutes to fly from Juneau into this little village… Read full post »
I lived as the house director in a big sorority with forty two girls in California. My first week living there a girl snuck some boys upstairs. I knew they did it but they weaseled out the door and I knew a guy and a girl were up in the… Read full post »
I call what I do blogging instead of writing. It seems to be part diary and part Art but there is a distance I keep from the real kernals of truth. That is where good writing can take you and I am just a blogger.

Bleak landscapes with no sign of life are usually the norm in Alaska in February. I spent twenty five years up there dreading February. In the hospital where I worked we bought a big light that emitted full spectrum rays. We sat some of our depressed patients in front of… Read full post »

"I know too much."
"Well, I'm glad you think you do."
Have you seen people die in agony not knowing who they are or where they are? Have you seen people who wanted to commit suicide or had to be sedated because they were combative? Have you been close… Read full post »
The Gods from Olympus rage against each other and use humans as the pawns in their struggles. I wonder if there aren't divine interventions going on in these modern times. The religious zealots seem driven by something that is more than human.
