    Coping and Hope

    by

    I wrote something yesterday. Only 750 words or so, but it wasn’t an email message or a note to my sleeping teenage son saying I’d taken the dog for a walk so if he woke, get his own breakfast. It took me about twenty minutes to write the first sentence, …

    Living in the “after”

    by

    I am living in the days after my best-friend /companion /confidant/ lover/ soulmate/ husband left his wrecked body behind, and moved into the the afterlife, joining his father and others he loved who had gone on before him.

    Its an unbelievable, unreal place to be–living without his shining eyes, his …

    Gratitude and Appreciation

    by

    Folks, I’ve traveled a fair amount in my life. At age 12, I went to Canada with my band class and stayed with a host family for several days–my first trip out of the country. You wouldn’t think the language would be a barrier, but I swear to god, the …

    Diary Dilemma: Can’t write

    by

    I can’t write. Had a lot free time today. I wandered the house. I swept. I cleaned the toilets. I cooked a meal. But I couldn’t pick up the computer and write, though I did spend a lot of time on it…not writing. I picked it up to use iMessage, …

    Small World

    by

    We’re in Guatemala. Guatemala City to be exact. Why? Because our visa was about to expire and our paperwork has not been processed yet to give me and the boys residency. We had to go somewhere, and this was the cheapest. Plus, Alex’s dad’s cousin lives here, and we had …

    Surreal

    by

    No glib, superficial entry today. Sorry folks, this one is a little heavy.

    A couple of nights ago, we were driving up the mountain from town. It was dark, raining lightly, and a thin fog hung on the banana plants and spiked fences of our neighbors. The headlights flashed across …

    Our Friend Otto

    by

    What did you to today? I outran a hurricane.

    O.K., not really “out run”, because we were driving, but you get what I mean. We’d PLANNED a trip to the Osa peninsula, but got an email from the hotel we were to stay in that the place was flooded. So, …

    Hi Happy Campers,
    So sorry I had to bail last week; I kept thinking I would make it to class, but more or less at the last minute, my husband convinced me I was a public viral menace and should stay home. But I missed you!

#tdc2023 Generals gathered in their masses / Peering through their opera glasses (?)

Audrey Watters‏ said, “repetition of the word ‘masses’ in the first 2 lines of Black Sabbath’s War Pigs is the most disappointing failure of imagination in the history of rhyme.”
