Her Baggage I finished this a few weeks ago and submitted it to a show. I haven't heard from the show curators, so I am going to assume it was not accepted. I have never entered a show and not received a rejection notice or acceptance notice. There is usually... Continue reading

I just drove across Kansas and Colorado with David Sedaris. Just me, the husband, the cat, the cat's litter box and David Sedaris. We were packed into the car the way a person with OCD might arrange Tetris blocks. Obsessively efficient. When I pack the car, I do it the... Continue reading

The husband got me a new cd for my Birthday. Lila Downs - Shake Away. If the name doesn't sound familiar, she was in that Frieda Kahlo movie. I have another cd (Tree of Life) of hers that I bought after seeing the film - she was that enchanting. I... Continue reading
So, I've been living in Canada for about 5 years and ever so often I have to remind myself about this. I say it that way because life here isn't that much different than in the States (ooooh, Canadians don't like that kind of talk). Truth is Vancouver is a... Continue reading

I just spent new years and my birthday in bed with the vertigo. This year I actually made plans to do a few things...but was unable to do them due to everything spinning and the fear or projectile vomiting. Well, as the husband said as I lie in bed, green... Continue reading

I had a particularly odd one last night. Very intricate and I am sure I am not remembering the whole thing. But what I do remember is that the dream was about a hurt hummingbird. The bird was sick or hurt or something was wrong with it. I took the... Continue reading
I was in the backyard of my place where I grew up - standing in the area that was my father's garden. It was muddy and nothing was growing but patches of grass. I walked toward the back of the house and I noticed that someone was building a structure... Continue reading
Do you hold grudges against people? Tell us about an incident if you do, and if you don't, tell us how you rise above it. Submitted by Sophie. Is it considered a grudge if you simply wipe them from your radar...forget you ever knew them...Stop being their friend. Or does... Continue reading
Yeah, that was me. I was the person who walked around the duvet aisle just as you yanked that expensive sheet set out of the plastic wrap. I saw you toss the wrap to the floor but you stopped trying to stuff the sheet set in your bag when you... Continue reading
and why you are an idiot if you are against it. Well, not really an idiot - but maybe you aren't seeing the big picture. Awhile back I asked (on my facebook page) for someone to explain to me the hub bub over same sex marriage. I honestly do not... Continue reading

August 25th, 7 a.m. the phone rang. I hadn't been asleep long. My sleep is erratic, at best. Some nights I fall out by midnight, some times I lie awake, listening to the radio until the room gathers light and I hear crows squawking in the alley. When I do... Continue reading
