COME-UPPANCE

Some time back another volunteer at The Center named Pat asked me if I was working on a writing project these days, and I said yes. She’s the Thursday gal, covers the desk during the time our WYOS group meets to cuss and discuss and write a page or two. She said she’d like to see it. (Big mistake,... Sign in to see full entry.

WYOS STORIES

Since half the writers were absent last week, I recycled the topics page for them to use. Also gave them a draft of the topic we will use at the Dine & Discover event next Thursday. Yesterday Abdel decided to write on one of the topics intended for next week’s soiree – your childhood pet. The topic... Sign in to see full entry.

THE POLITE EXCUSE…

Maybe you’re a better person than I and you’ve never lied to get out of going to some event. These days I don’t lie if someone asks me to attend some speech or concert or whatever. I just say “No, thanks,” and let it go at that unless they start insisting and maybe offering to give me a ride, etc…... Sign in to see full entry.

THE HEALTH FAIR

The Main Street Center held a health fair yesterday, a co-sponsored event hosted by AARP, the NAACP, and The Center. There were vendor booths, freebies, and free screenings.

SETTLING OUT

We had a family meeting this weekend. The second such get-together we’d had. “We” includes my daughter Robin and sons Rich and Russ. On the previous meeting, a year and a half ago, we met to do a kind of intervention with their youngest brother, whose troubled lifestyle was spilling over on the rest... Sign in to see full entry.

“PRINTER’S DEVIL”

If you Google this term you’ll find it means a young boy who serves as an apprentice in a print shop – or alternatively in some situations a misprint of some kind. But for our purpose here today, we’re talking about a co-worker of mine named Bob who ran the offset press next to mine at Adams... Sign in to see full entry.

YET ANOTHER CURTAIN CALL

A dark drama queen, Winter hovers center stage emoting like demented Shakespeare crones, she ignores the calendar’s turned page, hangs on to build ice sculptures in our bones. She grabs our hemline if we turn away, throws her darkening scarf across the sun no summer singers come outside to play they... Sign in to see full entry.

Ordering Those Affairs...

Coincidence? As Bill Maher calls it, Operation Stormy Daniels has been launched, a missile strike on the poison factories near Damascus with the cooperation of France and England. U.S. war planes responded to another atrocity in Syria. Perhaps it is wrong for analysts to conclude the Pretender chose... Sign in to see full entry.

Freedom and Justice for All...

PERCEPTION SHIFT I heard a poet talk of homelands, of immigrant findings, of America what it is what it means how it differs from what he imagined. I thought about my old belief that I was altogether American by birth, by ancestry, by association; until one day I found myself to be a world citizen -... Sign in to see full entry.

PREDATORY LOVE

There’s a certain recipe for love that’s put out by the movie makers, where boy sees girl, boy wants girl, but girl is happily on her own and doesn’t flip her hair or swish her skirt and gives him the cool shoulder. Now he can’t have that. His competitive instinct is turned on, and he is determined... Sign in to see full entry.
