My dear! Yes. I know, it’s been like… FOREVER since I wrote here. With good reason. My husband, I may have mentioned, has been on a long downhill slide for the past 6 years, and passed on this 13 May 2011. We had had 25 years together, mostly spent living in each other’s pockets.¬† We […]

Big Sur

My friend Nancy Chappell is dying of a brain tumor. Locked away inside her finely tuned mind is a treasury of Art– schematics, principles, esoterica, unrealized creations… I’ve known her for 2/3 of my life. She is like an older sister. The problem is, how can I get these WORDS to convey to you the […]

Hibernation

My winter habits were disrupted in January, usually The Empty Month, but this year I won the Gov’mint Lottery and was called up for Grand Jury duty. No time for REST. (And: unfortunately, my suspicions have been confirmed: our legal system is all bandaids, just like our medical system!!) Recuperation from the Holiday season, if […]

All Points Bulletin

There’s a couple people I’m looking for from the dim reaches of the past… in my usual Jumbled Gemini style I’m gonna approach this matter from left field: Moving from the ’50’s to the ’60’s was a cultural change equivalent to Dorothy’s “We’re not in Kansas anymore…” ‘Flower Children’ is an apt designation! Everything was […]

Law

January was looking pleasantly empty BUT… suddenly I’m on a Grand Jury for the month. Hum now: this is my 4th call. They waited 45 years to get me… The first 2 times I was wading in little kids. Last time, Richard had just had a stroke. This time, I actually made it in to […]

Making Decisions

Yes! I do know you’re out there, even though I missed a(nother) week writing… I’m here too and thinking of you. Woke up at 2 am. and noticed after a bit that my heart was beating very fast. Darn. Means that I ate something my body does not agree with. Better get out my pendulum […]

88 East St.

Something woke me up in the wee small ones this Monday morning… maybe it was a little query from you: ‘So! Where’s this Sunday’s blog??’ Okayyy… here’s about the house where I grew up. In the pressures of teenage years and concomitant escape into twentysomethings, I’d dismissed my childhood. It wasn’t until my 4th pregnancy […]

Husbands Who Have Lost Their Huff

Hi there. You’ve been on my mind. I know it’s been a while since my last posting… frrrankly, I’ve been putting it off because what ELSE’s on my mind would kind of involve spilling my guts, and I’m nervous about losing my balance. (PLUS: a lot of energy/attention is going into Produxion for the upcoming […]

The Ring

My mother Mildred was born on the wrong side of the tracks in Charleston SC. Her daddy was a brakeman on the railroad, content at that position and unwilling to accept promotion to conductor. Although they had train passes to go anywhere on vacations, there was not much money, and she remembers sitting on the […]
