After The Fire Is Gone

The din and the clamor is decamping today, moving out of my living area and off to the places east of me. I will still be able to hear them working but at a much lesser degree that will not be bothersome to me. I'm so glad that for now the work on my balcony outside of my dining room/living room...

The Power of Noise or The Noise of Power

It is a beautiful sunny day but I am spending it in a dimmed, darkened, noisy place that will probably go on all day today. All of the rooms that I spend my time in are involved in this maelstrom of noise (sawing, pounding, scraping and loud voices speaking above the sounds of the electric tools,...

Where Did That Come From?

I woke suddenly from weird dreaming and I can't get it out of my mind. I don't know where it came from--somewhere down deep, I guess. I don't like to dream.

(IV) The Family

It was a good thing the first baby was a girl for as it turned out, she was the motherly type, and as the other babies came along took good care of her siblings that followed. She never complained of hard work or had to be told what needed doing. She helped her mother uncomplainingly with all the... Sign in to see full entry.

(III) The Last Party

In the late 1800's, farming was hard work. It always has been. It is now. And it always will be. "By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” Genesis 3:19 All of the people in this bit...
