Winterlude


I ‘ve been struggling to find topics to write about. I’ve been trying to keep my posts lighthearted but we are living through some of the worst times that I’ve ever seen. The country is so polarized that I’m pretty sure that we can’t agree about the color of the sky. Now we’ve got theContinue reading “Winterlude”

Twilight


I had a lot to talk about. Apparently, it wasn’t that important because I can’t think of any of it. Sleep on it, they say. Seems to have worked. At any rate, I’m back. But, I’m not sure for how long. I tried to switch my extension to the one I’ve had for 30 years.Continue reading “Twilight”

How Soon Is Now?


T his has been a nightmare to post. For some reason the computer crashed. I had to go into recovery mode which dropped all of my passwords. Of course, everything that I needed to load took forever. WordPress, which is always a problem, got worse. Spell check stopped functioning and try as I might IContinue reading “How Soon Is Now?”

Everlong


I t seems I went backwards today. My last two posts were artistic in nature. They were pictures that helped you to feel. I hope. This picture is more traditional in the sense that it helps you to see the end of a day as I documented it. It may also help you to feel.Continue reading “Everlong”

Autumn has the Purple Sock Blues…


F irst, the title. It’s a children’s song about autumn. It’s just weird enough for me to like it. The music is fun too. The picture is quintessential fall. All those golden colors contrasted against the evergreen leaves. That always makes my day. I hope this picture makes yours.

They Don’t Tell You


H ere’s the deal. When I sit down to write this stuff I am at peace. A few minutes later I am as agitated as I can be. WordPress makes this so. I’ve pretty much had enough. I’m going to try an end around. That’s different from a work around. I don’t want to doContinue reading “They Don’t Tell You”

Windfall


A lot of WordPress writers are taking part in NaNoWriMo which, to my brain, reads like “No Mo Writing.” Writers are supposed to churn out 50,000 words during the month of November. I’d try to do it but I don’t have enough to say. Besides, my fiction would go something like this. One night heContinue reading “Windfall”

Sunlight


T his almost didn’t happen. I had so many problems rebooting and reinstalling software that I was about to give up. For instance, OnOne took just one hour and fifteen minutes to load. I have no idea why. Most everything else loaded in a reasonable amount of time. But, there was a lot of it.Continue reading “Sunlight”

Changes


C old weather and chicken stock. Isn’t that what you do when it’s cold? Cook something. So, that’s what we did. Then, I sat down to write this. I’m always influenced by what, or who, I’m listening to. This time, it’s Brandi Carlile reading her book, “Broken Horses.” It’s bringing up all sorts of emotions.Continue reading “Changes”
