I’m Off! sometime

Life is full of turns, sharp edges, shades, and experiments in color. In other words, your life is your art. Make the best of it. And remember to be kind. I spent several moments recently, staring at a picture I took last fall of my five grandchildren. I saw glimpses of their parents, of myself,…

Shame

I remember the crosswalk in front of my elementary school where I stood when I heard the news that President Kennedy had been shot and killed. I will never forget. I remember the room where I stood in front of the tv and watched an airplane fly into the second twin tower building, and then…

Boom!

I’m starting off 2021 with a controversial subject, so if you don’t like controversy, or only like your own opinion and no others, you best not read any further. What a way to reduce one’s readership! Many years ago I took a Comparative Religions class in college wherein we studied the eight major religions of…

Celebrating!

Back in the saddle again. I say that because returning to writing my blog is a bit like riding a horse after a long hiatus. What I have yet to figure out is my new novel project. There is simply so much going on at the moment. A new novel idea may have to wait…

Happy Holidays

 I am going to take time off from blogging through the holidays. As I write this, I’m watching it snow teeny tiny flakes (we are so in need of moisture), coming mostly straight down, which is something you appreciate if you’ve ever lived out on the Plains. Covid has caused so much stress in the…

Good Fortune

Two pages into the errata sheets from my copy editor, I realized the program I was using on her document was not saving the changes. I had to start over. Migraine! Oh well. I’m learning a lot about the English language (mostly about how poor at it I actually am). My french lessons, however, are…

Old Ritual

I managed to slough off and not write for the past week. I did however, bake way too much and enjoyed every single calorie that I swallowed. I was going to start putting in the errata corrections for Compass Point, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. Then I looked at my quilt and tried…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you are healthy, stay that way, eat too much, laugh too much, smile, smile, smile, and get in a good nap in the next few days. If you are one who thinks Democrats and Republicans are on opposite sides, think about this. What happens when an alien space ship lands…

Codger

We are having a lot of beautiful weather for November. My remembrances of this month are that it is usually dreary and cloudy. This year, perhaps nature is gifting us warm sunshine to help fight covid fatigue. Perhaps not, but it has been beautiful in-between the spurts of cold and snow and wind. I handle…

Mighty

I’m continuing my discussion of masks from my last blog because of receiving such a large response. People are tuned into this subject. I recently had a couple of discussions about the fact that doctors have been wearing masks for over a hundred years. They do so because they know, and have known for a…
