VESATILE YIDDISH WORD: NU

VERSATILE YIDDISH WORD: NU This is one of those days when nothing goes as you thought it would. Had to go out, Day 2 of going to the gym for a group class of Yoga. Walk the hill, hang out and come home sore. That is most of it. But on the...

MISUDERSTANDING

  MISUNDERSTANDING She Wrote ( murder she wrote ) Blogs and blogging is a special experience and has power unto its own. Years ago I came to blogging as a way of insuring that I wrote something suitable for public viewing. A writer...

serious

SERIOUS My mind plays tricks on me. I am older now, but even when I was young I lived in an environment where children were seen, but not heard. So I learned to get my way and learned to live in the shadow of my older siblings and move...

veetable oil

  VEGETABLE OIL I don’t care what other people do, as long as we agree. “You are Not My Boss.” And there are variations on that theme, but for the most part I live and let live. Unless of course, things change and the weather and the...

THE OLD ROUTINE

THE OLD ROUTINE In my mind are etched the words, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The world is shrinking and I have a front row seat. Perched on the edge of a vast Ocean, protected by an inland sea and harbor, mountains protecting me from harsh gale force...

ELBOW ROOM

ELBOW ROOM My blogs come to me as if they are encoded in the minds of others. Out of Thin Air. And lately I have lost focus of me, been working on the demands of others and the basic energies I pick out of nowhere. In the faces that pass by...

NYC HOODIE

NYC HOODIE It has been raining all day. I had a lot of plans. Dreams and hopes and wanted to get out on the street, to walk among the people. Woke up thinking about being in the middle of New York City and can’t remember how old I was, the...

GROWING UP

Growing Up Naive Came across the words “ mouth congress” and “playing the flute.” And just liked the sound of the word combination without thinking. And then dawned on me, be careful, what you wish for. I am having one of those days where...

SPOTSYLVANIA BYPASS

SPOTSYLVANIA BYPASS I thought this would be one of those clever blogs I could write, not too serious and certainly not involving me and in the end leaving a smile upon your face as you went along and into your day. Carefree and without...

thracian girl

THRACIAN GIRL This is my grand attempt to move away from Eagle and Talon, score with a fantastic release on life that liberates me from my worst self. And how do we know when wild eyes take over, and you spin into the realm of others,...

LETTING GO

LETTING GO It is only 9 o’clock in the morning and this is making no sense to me. What is that about? In the old days, I had nothing more to do than head for the health club, Saturday or Sunday morning and get inside my head. Act as if I was...

heart workout

HEART WORKOUT The subject for today is “Paying Attention.” And it all begins with you. If this isn’t about you, then why bother? Another good question and it needs no answer from me. I am in the middle of Summer, and its only May. A few days of...

never too late

NEVER TOO LATE Saw this while reading the paper this morning. A 95 year old Kansas woman became the world’s oldest person to graduate from college with a BA, is now 98 years old and will receive a master’s degree from Fort Hays State...

unstable elements

UNSTABLE ELEMENTS Living online enjoying input from others. Some say I am enjoying YouTube.com and the music and the videos. Others suggest SURFING through blogs as a fun way to keep up with others. And all of this is blissful. Combines three...

MAKE IT HAPPEN

MAKE IT HAPPEN The sun streaming through my window and I am reminded of how different the weather is in all the places I am not, but you are. Is interesting when blogs are read and we look out the window, or open the patio door and stand on...

missed calls

MISSED CALLS Starting with the idea of wishing all, Happy Mother’s Day. I think this includes most and all humans on the planet. Its all about celebrating how we become, from conception point to this moment where we are reading and...

NO SENSE

NO SENSE I have never expected anybody to see it my way. I have a different ratio of “human” and “possible” attached to me. Have always been okay with being in my own little world, now expanded because of technology and surveillance cameras...

MOTHER day00

MOTHER day000 I don’t think this is going to fly, but I am digging myself out and want to elongate in blue sky with smiles all around the kite avoiding tailspin and just enough wind to keep it full sail. And this is but another way to find my...

IMAGINE X2

IMAGINE X2 I have seen something. The Power of Two. Voices in the night, and the tender whisper and the cry. And over time all things grow, and perhaps maturity comes and it becomes the point where there is amplification and magnification and...

Blowing Smoke

  BLOWING SMOKE My topic for today is Blowing Smoke. In the old days that would mean going to a nightclub or Jazz parlor or live. Music and scent of cigarettes. Smoke and smokey eyes that got more clouded as the day and night became one. But...

Investigating London Town

INVESTIGATING LONDON TOWN From time to time and place to place, I forget myself. Reinvent. Party on the other side of the tracks. Become an extra in a movie. Wander around, playing a role and immersing and mingling with the...

pas life sketch

PAST LIFE SKETCH I have entered into a new dimension. Touch other people by the words I post, online. Feelings and connections, drawn into a circle, degree and latitude and longitude, making certain where I am, in the minds of others. And...
