TUESDAY AT THE CENTER

Things are slow at the Main Street Center these days. No bingo. No pinochle. No kitchen angels chatting as they put together the snacks for the games, organize the home delivered meals deliveries. No need to brew a pot of coffee. Not many phone calls at the front desk, now that the bus no longer... Sign in to see full entry.

RESPONSE TO LARRY'S SO-CALLED JOKE ON FACEBOOK.

I couldn't help myself. Here's my response: I always knew the Aunt Jemima image represented the slave woman who raised the planter's white children.

About that hot fudge sundae...

I had written a whole post to go with that one sentence - a recap and opinion bit about the breaking news that Russia was offering a bounty to Taliban fighters for each and every American solder they could kill.

HAPPY LIBERATION DAY

Sixty years ago today, which was also a Friday, the judge tapped his gavel and said "divorce granted." I was free of my abuser, free of his threats, no longer subject to his whims and aggressions. He was arrogant enough to act as his own attorney, confident the judge would give him absolute custody... Sign in to see full entry.

EVENTUALLY

When I get to heaven my mother will be just another one of my sister angels. She will not be the strict and critical perfectionist I knew as a child. I found this out when our conversation in a daydream found me telling her about the compliment. Someone said I was an articulate writer, and I was... Sign in to see full entry.

Without Blogit I would tear my hair and go running into traffic...

It's like a kaffe klatch in the morning as I "hear" the stories of the everyday glory my Blogit neighbors bring to their posts. It doesn't feel like glory sometimes, this everyday same old same-O but there is natural wonder in observations of birds' nests, in the daily work of sculpting flower... Sign in to see full entry.

Each week since Covid-19 shut down group activities at the Main Street Center, I’ve put together a Tips & Topics sheet for the Write Your Own Story group – but instead of gathering at the table and enjoying the writings of others, it gets posted to The Center’s Facebook page.

They may go back to hanging out with friends, no worries about masks or social distancing. The most... Sign in to see full entry.
