Seeking Treasures and Pleasures

Sunday Morning Magazine   Yesterday, was a day of Carolina Blue skies, refreshing temperatures, a breeze that whisked fall leaves away from trees, and a jaunt out and about that brought unexpected pleasures and treasures.   That was certainly a mouthful of a sentence.   Still recovering from the gall bladder surgery, and feeling a…

One Step At A Time

I am forever saying that. One step at a time. And that is how it is now, today. Except I put a bunch of steps together to walk around the block. Slowly. Gingerly. Deliberate. Yesterday, I was still groggy from the anesthesia. I walked around the house some, but mostly, hung out on the recliner….

Seattle and The Forests

Sunday Morning Magazine   So it appears our choices for the presidency is a man who it is said, screws a few and a woman who screws everyone.   Oh, I beg your puddin for that one. I thought it up Friday on the plane after hearing about the latest brouhaha and couldn’t resist.  …

Operation … Health

The pre-op is finished. It was easy.   Finding the hospital, well, not so much.   You know about hospitals, don’t you? Some are in one building and others are like college campuses.   And when you are relatively new to a town, at least the hospital circuit, you can go a tad loopy trying…

The Month of Magical Thinking

After Joan Didion’s husband of 40 died, she wrote a book called, “The Year of Magical Thinking.”   She wrote it in loneliness and ironic sadness. It wasn’t just that her husband had died, but also, her only daughter was in the hospital close to death, also. Within two years she lost her husband and…

On Being

There was an almost full moon out last night.   But I saved my howling for this morning.   We put back mulch down on top of the pine needles that the builder used. People have said that snakes like the pine needles. And since I don’t like snakes, the pine needles had to go….

Friday Night Lights

It was long ago. Very long ago. Sometimes it feels like another lifetime, but if I really put my mind to it, I can hear see it, hear it and feel it. If Saturday night was date night, Friday night, in the fall, was football Friday. The football field for Norwood High School was on…

What would You Do If You Knew?

The streets in Clover were my walking path, yesterday. I needed a different scene from that of my neighborhood streets.   There are times that I love to misplace myself … wander around places… Source: What would You Do If You Knew?

What would You Do If You Knew?

The streets in Clover were my walking path, yesterday. I needed a different scene from that of my neighborhood streets.   There are times that I love to misplace myself … wander around places I haven’t been and have to figure out how to return back to the place I started. It is on these…

Body Double

Sigh, It is with a heavy heart and a bigger butt that I must tell you this.   My role as “The Wrinkled Writer” is going to be very short-lived.   Why?   Because I have been chosen to be Skim Skardashian’s body double!!!!   You heard me, I have been chosen out of thousands…

Sun Glow and the Truth

In life, many things are seen indirectly.   I say that as I sit at my desk and look out my window onto the side of the house across the street whose side is glowing with the morning sun.   It isn’t the sun I am seeing, but the light reflection.   To follow that…

Hurricanes

In 1928, Okeechobee Hurricane pillaged Florida.   My mother had the scar to prove it.   Actually, she had many scars, some visible from the event, and others that would come later, due to circumstances caused by the event.   A window blew in and cut her above the eye.   That was the evident…
