As my mother grows older she has let her hair grow out and long for a couple
reasons; mostly because she can't get to the salon as much.
My mother will be eighty this summer.
My mother looks like me with her long white hair and no facial hair. It's her karma working. She always told me I was ugly.
Now this thinking gives way to two possibilities, my mother was just cruel or I am truly ugly. In any case mom is paying the price for her…Continue

My neighbor has Comcast for internet, TV and telephone. I always advise my clients to have telephone separate from their internet, so that when one is down, they can use the other to get help. Most of my clients don’t listen to my advice. They just call me when things go wrong.
It was a dark and stormy night (I kid you not) when my neighbor with the Comcast Trifecta called from another neighbor’s. He lives about 5…Continue

I sat in my doorway, Room B 33 for the last time looking up one hall and down the same hall watching the world unfold for another fun filled day at Heartland of Victorian Village.
You find out very quickly that just because you, me in this case is being discharged today doesn't mean that anything special will happen. The world just continues right on it's way, on it's own.
Movement continues, speech continues, joys and sadness continue just as…Continue

My houseguest and I were hanging up our laundry on the line. I hung up my socks by one side of the cuff. She hung hers up by the toe.
I remembered that my mother used to hang her socks up by the toe. It…Continue

I am amazed in having so many ‘likes’ to my post." Laughing, in Spirit”, which was a spontaneous reaction to an amazing experience. Since writing this one paragraph article I have reflected upon it, as I do, I can feel the positive emotional uplift from the dream.
There is a sub current of energy in me which motivates me to reflect and analyze the experience. First, the title ‘Laughing in Spirit’, I used the word spirit because the experience was not of this dimension. Some…

I'm working on a completely different story and can't get my head out of it to write a blog, so here's a story I wrote a few years ago:
The Lying Day
1) Today is a school holiday. A whole day for playing. Except you never can tell with my mother. Usually she asks me what I want to do, and we do it. But sometimes, she decides to do…Continue

Last night I had a dream. I was with a group of people and one of them said something funny, we began laughing. You know that deep belly laugh we have all experienced on occasions. In this situation we were laughing in spirit, the difference was it was a thousand times more pleasurable than when we laugh in the physical form. I was chuckling away when I awakened. If only I could have held on to it—Ah! But alas! It was but just a dream.

One of my clients emailed me – she was upset – her cat is dying and she can’t stand to see him suffer – she’s taking him to the vet to have him put to sleep.
I know she has no family members who could go with her, so I volunteered. She accepted.
I met her at the vet’s office.
Her cat hadn’t eaten in 3 days. He was weak. He’d…Continue

When my younger daughter had trouble with algebra in junior high, I told her, I’d had trouble with algebra in junior high, too. But I took it again when I was older and the 2nd time it was easy. I didn’t know if it was easy because I was older or because I had a better book.
When I decided to try algebra again in my late 20's. I went to the local book store (yes, a regular bookstore, not the college text book shop) and…Continue

The Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers will face off at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday in a battle of 1-0 teams. Two former No. 1 overall picks will start at quarterback in Matthew Stafford and Cam Newton. Newton missed last week’s season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a rib injury he sustained in the preseason. Panthers’ coach Ron Rivera expects him to make his 2014 season debut against the Lions. He’ll look to replicate his backup Derek Anderson’s success from week 1.…Continue

I’m frequently amazed by the skills my muscles remember.
Of course I can ride my bike and swim. And do some magic tricks with rubber bands.
But get a parakeet to sit on my finger? Is that even a muscle skill?
I hadn’t done that in over 50 years.…Continue

EROSION OF TIME
A year like a dream is gone in a flash,
The book of life starts on page one,
Like sweet memory`s the pages
turn today becomes yesterday`s
dream in the sunset`s of the past.
The silent door of time swings
closed for someone and opens
to a baby`s smile!
Be gloomy not for You will walk this way again
on this path of time.
THIS I KNOW .
