it hasn't been an issue till 5/28. you helped me with this before some months ago. i guess a year? maybe? and i learned how to work it. But it is not working anymore. i take the pics vertically, like any normal person would. take the pic of what's in front of me....Plant, Cloth. they show up sideways for typepad and i reorient them. that's a step i "shouldn't" have to take, but i've gotten used to it. This tho.... it's HOT. There is SO MUCH to DO... i am just not into sitting here trying thing after thing to simply upload a decent pic to the blog. it's all just NOT user friendly. but the thought of switching to some other thing is more than i can bear. i don't like wordpress format either. i don't kno. Am going down to the Garden now. there is a BeautyFULL WInd blowing, it will fix me.

ok. i double clicked and selected large. saved. the dimensions of the image are now correct BUT the pic is half the size that should (and always has) appear. i double clicked again and selected Full. the pic continues to be this size. it will not revert to full. Continue reading

there is a GRAND MOON rising and i make my bed with FRESH SHEET and PILLOW CAse because i was at Alyssia's today for her to take the feral momma cat to be spayed...i had to arrive at 7:30 am so she could be there at 8 am to be allowed in...only first come first serve for the community spay program and i spent the morning with Brown Emrie while her mother Brown Alyssia went off and her brother, Brown Julian slept till 10 am when his home school starts... i hardly NEVEr think of the brownness. ? i am the grandma, the great grandma maybe i should???? if so, How?
i have spoken of Dora before. The Beauty FULL friend i had now long gone to the Other Side Dora who had the numbers on her forearm from the concentration camp. Dora who was a Tai Chi Master...her tiny elegant self, doing her forms, her silver comb in her snow white hair Beauty FULL Dora who i used to draw dry and dead blooms with who LOVED pomegranates who would press her face into them, slurping them juice running down her deicate chin bone how much she loved pomegranates
jaime...me being here is BECAUSE of you and Us All being here we ARE eachother it's all that has any meaning
pomegranate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you remember, there were several blossoms. but here we are. Just one single fruit. As i give water, i breathe and ask. If it can be, please. This one Pomegranate. i will not eat it but let it dry. They make rattles. but as i type this....maybe i should plant Her seeds?????????
from phone gallery to typepad. Same same same as for a looooooong time now. On 5-28 it was just different. this is a Bummer. it's hot. i cannot sit here and screw with all Anna's and now Marilyn's suggestions.

the pomegranate. there were so many blossoms. just this one fruit. with Typepad Help tech suggestions, we've gotten this far. Image is correct proportion but the pic is only half of what it has been for so long. which is maybe ok enough for pomegranates but is NOT for Cloth.... Continue reading

Hello Anna when i previewed the pic BEFORE clicking on it to turn it upright, it appeared the correct size. Clicking and turning upright turned it into a slice of bread again. So, the answer to your question is yes. Why is this suddenly happening? this has been happening since... Continue reading

i think that's the Beauty Full question we can all ask ourselves what do i know? if i offend, then so be it...it's just trying. my deep hope is to continue talking through that offending, facing it and keep talking, keep trying and this time, maybe this time, maybe we won't Quit, but keep going till we get someWhere

have been sitting here watching the little black line pulse, waiting for me to begin this comment and i almost can't, but now i am, am typing here words but i just sit and watch the cursor pulse i don't know what to write. many here might know that i have a diverse family. we are, some, white like me. and then we are also black, puerto rican, salvadoran and so, mixed. Mixed. so the stakes in all this are high for me, most specifically a 29 year old grandson who for all practical purposes is black. and then the father of my most loved being on this planet, my 3 yo great granddaughter is Salvadoran and a cop in Huston TX. ~cursor pulses . . . . i don't know....but if anyone can, try to Get Inside It...what might it feel like from INSIDE it... this is not working. i need to just be quiet for a while. to paraphrase Ocean Vuong...words worthy of our breath
