I've been back - that column was published a year ago!!! Not sure how you saw it yesterday.

I wouldn't call it a brief breakfast -but it was certainly too short for a satisfactory visit. I hope with Sue, or just with Maria, we can spend an evening together. It's just so hard for me to get away. But also, Margo - I really have a heavenly swimming pool surrounded by flowers, screened. Good for swimming from March to october. And a bed or couch to spare. You would be so welcome.

I don't know about you but every few years I find an all-time favorite book - this is one of them. So nice to hear from you, reading the blog post close to four years after it went up!

Oh Labelle,I'm so glad you liked it. It wouldn't have anything to do with it being so Luli-centric, would it? The one I thought would make you laugh was the computer's "random error message." But glad you liked the Dr of Thinkology certificate.

I have always been pro-choice and pro-abortion. Having a baby transforms a woman’s life, and abortion is often the best solution to an unwanted pregnancy. I have participated in a few demonstrations about abortion rights. I am ambivalent about the value of demonstrations. But the latest outrageous attacks on Planned... Continue reading

I don't understand why we dread phone calls (yes, me too - it was a real problem when I worked for a living). Maybe it's about being an introvert? It's a pain in the neck. Answering machines are a blessing to the phone-phobic.

To anyone who breathlessly awaits my monthly promised posts - I'm sorry. This is the first time in almost four years that I've been unable to meet my self-imposed deadline. I will be back by the end of August. Minor illnesses, deaths, travel, and confusion have prevented me from writing. Continue reading

Mosaics - omg! Don't tempt me. We went to Ravenna years ago, and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the mosaics, came home thinking I could do that too. But didn't. (And couldn't have.) As for the dulcimer - I gave serious consideration to the ukelele, so I could accompany my glorious singing, until Joe pointed out that maybe I'd better not take on one more thing. Making lovely or not-so-lovely stuff connects us to the kindergartner in all of us, who didn't know she wasn't an artist. Do you ever put pictures of your work on FB? I'd love to see it.
