A misguided attempt to sit on the little plastic table resulted in a perfect explosion that happened quickly and efficiently. It was spectacular and we all gathered around to inspect the debris. The farthest piece was flung about ten feet away and we all gasped in amazement a… Read full post »
"I don't like when you scribble." Great Grandma was trying to get her little Miss Three to calm down a bit. I can't blame her. Scribbling is messy and outside the lines. It covers over everything and gets tiring to clean up.
"It is my work." the great granddaughter… Read full post »
I feel the culture is divided into the T's and the Z's. A simple conversation with one of my mom's neighbors turned awkward with mention of the trial. It became obvious she was a "Z" and as a staunch "T" I knew I had to steer the conversation in another… Read full post »
I poured my paint water on my daughters head.
She was a little girl bugging me to let her paint too.
She howled and ran in the house and I continued painting.
It was a picture of the Glacier on a piece of… Read full post »
I usually try to have some sort of abstract art project going where I can just let loose. I have no plan but lots of emotion that wants to go somewhere. I am not sure what triggered this mad display but it was the start of lots of therapy.
When I walked into my mom's house there were two cans of Pledge on the counter and a roll of paper towels. "What is this for, Mom?" I asked innocently.
"I want you to wipe off the garbage cans and spray them with Pledge." she said. I told… Read full post »
I was uplifted by a great meeting with SnarkyChaser and her family. It made me wish my own kids were younger and still at home. Families can get so flung apart and… Read full post »
In a burst of energy the mother deer bounded one way and the baby went the other. I saw the little deer coming towards me and stood still. The little dots on his back were so cute.
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.
2) … Read full post »
"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!
"I don't want to hustle."
One of the most famous movie lines is... "If you… Read full post »
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 am making a third birthday cake out of stucco for Petunia. She will be coming for a visit soon and I hope she likes it. What a crazy grandma… 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?"
There are lots of… Read full post »
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 »
