Crushing Loneliness

    The words "crushing loneliness" have been on my mind lately.  A million reasons make me lonely and it is like depression with a twist.  It takes tremendous energy to merge back into the world and carry on after a bout with loneliness. 

   I found a wonderf… Read full post »

Watercoloring Outside

            watercolor two trees

          I am enamored with the results I am getting from Plein Air Watercoloring.  I go outside to a pretty spot and paint.  Then I embellish a bit back here and that is it.  You can o… Read full post »

Mom is doing Great.

   There is something in my mother that is like a little motor running on empty and yet eternally steady.   She has survived a week of stunningly painful headaches and wooziness to again push herself upright and vow to eat more vegetables. 

    We have reduced some… Read full post »

Art from Goodwill

  I have been doing watercolors outside lately and went to Goodwill to see if I could find a used frame for them.  I found a friend.

   I picked a frame that was close to the size I needed but mostly because it had a graphic print in it that… Read full post »

English as a Second Language

   I heard that the educational system is thinking of putting the students who speak English in separate classes from kids who don't speak English.  This would not apply to classes in Art and Music. 

   I say let's do away with all the classes except Art and Music. &nbs… Read full post »

Sex and Religion

   Seems to me sex and religion are similar as both aim to blow the top of your head off.  When you have your chakras all in a line and the energy culminates in the seventh level at the top of your head there is a white light and that sounds… Read full post »

Kabbalah - Mystical Wisdom

  Starting "Kabbalah" by Perle Epstein on the way of the Jewish Mystic when I was at the beach seemed like a good idea.   I could see from the table of contents that it is a beautiful book.  Cultivating Awe...Revealing the Cosmic Body...The Female Aspect of God....King Solomon's B… Read full post »

Artist's Estate Sale

   All her little treasures were spread out on tables in the small house.  I had not expected to be so moved by the 'estate' sale.  She had been relocated to her daughter's house and then into a group home where her dementia could be better managed.  I hadn't realized she… Read full post »

Write the Unwritable

Scanner, where are you?   I know you know how to write about the true nature of reality.  You don't flinch.  I do.

 I would rather drift in melancoly ignoring the idea that the world can be a very scary, traumatic place.  Someone said that when tragedy strikes focus on t… Read full post »

Tea Party Zombies

"Do Less, Mom."

   My 95 year old mom was all revved up this AM.  She had her list and her trajectory planned on our car outing.  Since she gave up driving last year I am the driver every other day and she hasn't quite gotten used to that.  I haven't either.  This intimate… Read full post »

Halloween Decorations

  I am always excited to see October roll around because I can drag out my bag of Halloween things and hang my purple lights.  I wonder what the neighborhood thinks of my spider web embedded with skeletons and glow in the dark spiders.   I like to watch the kids looking… Read full post »

The Perfect Book for These Days

Playing Doctor

  Sexy games of  'Playing Doctor' are fun and revealing.  Examining another person's body and your own can wile away the hours.  When you really need some help tho,  a 'Real Doctor' is what you need and not some half baked laymen's opinion.
