Have Fun…

Remember your mom calling after you as you went out to play: ‘Have fun…’ ? It’s a bit hard to recall just how that works. How does one have fun when the bills pile high, the workload grows, sad things creep in? I have…

Where are your keys?

Sometimes I find my keys in my hand when I’m tearing through my purse or the house for the tenth time. We’re such a busy society that what is plainly in our hands is often missed. A good reminder of how oblivious we are…

All Things…

Thunder rumbles loud. Barely noticed by those beneath the grey sky. Our noisy world hardly hears a siren, an explosion, a cry for help. Hearing only what is important at the moment. The phone call, the broken printer, the angry client. But thunder rumbles for a reason, song…

Brushstrokes…

At dusk last night clouds were backlit by a soon setting sun. Pinks took over where white puffs had just been. Streaks of peach arched from west to east. A canvas stretched sky wide. Brushstrokes of the Master Artist. This morning a bluest blue canvas greeted…

Dice & Laughter…

     If laughter is the best medicine, then twelve ladies in my neighborhood must be the healthiest around. Once a month we get together and play a silly dice game called bunko. It doesn’t take any strategy or effort – so we throw dice…

The Anniversary…

     31 Years is a long time, a short time. Sweet are the memories – young years spent planning, child rearing years spent smiling, remaining years spent hand in hand… Last year the longest married couple in America celebrated their 81st anniversary – they…

Six Hours One Tuesday…

It started out being ‘let’s meet for lunch’ … it turned into a memorable day… She’s 25, I’m 55. She’s full of big plans; I’m wondering what’s the plan? Conversation goes from mundane to hysterical laughter and everything in between in a matter of…
