A PIECE OF THE SKY Blackbird loves shiny things, believes they are bits of sky and so picks up dimes, spoons, tinfoil bits. Her intent is to give them back to the sky, but she has not yet learned to fly high enough, so she keeps them safely in her nest. Blackbird observes the human walking on the...

For the past week or so I’ve been looking myself in the mirror and asking that old gal “what’s the freakin’ point?” My nega self tells me I could jump off a bridge and nobody would even notice. My old clothes suit me just fine. No need to shop. I can make coffee at home. Why go out? If I go to the... Sign in to see full entry.

August 2003, plh

STAR DATE They said there would be shooting stars tonight and Mars would burn amber above the east horizon closer than he’s been for sixty thousand years. He approaches like a hopeful Latin boy who left his companeros to cross the galaxy’s wide dance floor to woo the evening star who caught his eye.... Sign in to see full entry.

TALKING TO STRANGERS Malcolm Gladwell’s new book Talking to Strangers is fascinating and thought provoking. His non-fiction is way more interesting than the most intricate detective fiction. Once he has explained what he’s found, arrived at his conclusion based on solid facts, it becomes clear that... Sign in to see full entry.

TIME TO GET OFF THE DIME AND ORGANIZE THIS PLACE A friend at The Center gave me a couple shopping bags full of yarn that had been in her storage facility for some time.

Malcolm Gladwell has a new book out. It just came out two days ago. The title is Talking to Strangers. It’s a study of communicating, how we don’t always hear what the other person thinks they said, how dangerous it can be to trust that what someone we don’t know is up to. There are con artists, and... Sign in to see full entry.

THE DEBATES: Gee, sorry fellow Blogiteers, but I missed them. Also missed the endless analysis afterward. For some reason I fell asleep halfway through a rerun of “Young Sheldon.” Now I’m totally uninformed about winners, losers and also-rans. Also missed all the news & analysis of DC doings – who’s...

Found while sorting the wheat from the chaff

POLITICALLY INCORRECT CAT I have this kitten, or rather, she has me and although she is pretty as kittens go, and affectionate to a fault, she bugs me. She thinks she owns my lap, wants to play my cards, read my paper, sip my tea, lick my plate and attacks the cords to the VCR. She drives me crazy... Sign in to see full entry.

9-11: Patriot Day (according to my calendar)

I think most of us remember where we were on 9-11-2001 when the planes hit the twin towers in New York City. The event was broadcast live on TV. At first I thought it was a clip from a Hollywood movie being shown on the A.M. news. It was around 6:30 in the morning and I had the news on as I dressed,... Sign in to see full entry.

Edie – one of the kitchen angels at The Center – had to place her hubby in assisted care a while back following his stroke. He’s too big a guy for her to wrestle out of bed and into a wheelchair by herself, he needs help getting to the bathroom, etc. She’s been feeling guilty about not being able to...
