Life Is...

Who knows how much time Adalia Rose has. A child with Progeria Syndrome normally lives into their teens. Adalia Rose is six, going on ninety-six. The word "progeria" comes from two words meaning "premature" and "aging". For that matter, who knows how much time any of us have. What is important is... Sign in to see full entry.

So What's Left?

Today I began the 76th year of my life. I had always planned on giving up the ghost when I reached 72. That had always seemed like a good day to die (the 72nd anniversary of my birth), back when I was 30, 40, and even 50. Now, I'm wondering why I chose that "goal". I feel like I am living on...

Attention Pod People

I meant to go to the city farmers market, this morning, in search of okra in its prime. It's that time of the year to make the best fried okra ever, and the best has to be small, the tenderest and the freshest. Grandma Sanders' fried okra has been the main subject of our family FB site for days.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Coming

If I have to celebrate my birthday this year, I want it to be a lemon garden party,....lemons to smell, to taste, to look at, to squeeze, to zest, lemon ice, lemon pudding, lemon snaps, lemon soap, lemon candles, lemonade, lemon meringue pie. If my sons are involved, they always want meat....grilled... Sign in to see full entry.

A Curlew Or Two

Bird watching is a treat for me. Actually, my sons and I are sold on that activity. We share what we see and brag about it to each other. Son #3 is the only one that has had an owl sitting in one of his trees. I've always been a bit jealous of that as I am fascinated by owls. On one of my walks I... Sign in to see full entry.

A Day In July

She always calls me in July for a long, loving, special conversation...not one of those quicky things to let me know some change in schedule, or news of Peter, or bragging about her only grandchild (my great-grandbaby). She always calls me in July for that unhurried, reminiscent, mutual admiration... Sign in to see full entry.

A Pest Of A Post

This has been one of those days where I have been quite dissatisfied with everything that I have written for a post, and have deleted what I have written instead of posting. Everything has just seemed quite jaded, or idiotic, or as if I really don't know what I am talking about. It must be because... Sign in to see full entry.

A Coming Together

When I wrote the previous post, I copied it and sent it to Son. He has always been interested in my Blogit experiences of so many years. It has always fascinated him to know that we at Blogit were from every continent--exotic countries near and far...Iceland, Greece, Denmark, Africa, Costa... Sign in to see full entry.

Life Diminished

Rocky died during the night last night. It was not really unexpected. Son has been trying to make up his mind what to do about Rocky. The vet tried to be supportive but didn't give much encouragement to Son. Rocky was Grandson Phil's doggy. He was so patient with Phil when Phil was younger and... Sign in to see full entry.

Born Again

"Except ye become as little children," except you can wake on your fiftieth birthday [or sixtieth, or seventy-fifth] with the same forward-looking excitement and interest in life that you enjoyed when you were five, "ye cannot enter the kingdom of God." One must not only die daily, but every day we... Sign in to see full entry.
