Words & Writing

Whirling, twirling on timeless pages of the mind, they danced about here and there playing games and having fun, making rhymes or not, then disappearing e'er the thought was done returning to flit and fly or cling to thoughts as if laughing at my inept expertise at weaving poetry. But then I had the... Sign in to see full entry.

Where Did It Go?

An old photo from my picture box of long ago, and a new photo of the same person on Facebook, I hold together side to side, but, no, I cannot tell it is the same person. Too many years have passed. Too much water under the bridge of time. And, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the same... Sign in to see full entry.

A Moment's Pause and Reflection

The wildness of the place is a drawing card for anyone who loves nature. According to city code, only the front and sides seen from the street have to be kept mowed. The backyard slants downward to a stream and then back up a hill on the other side. No, I don't want to live here, but it is good for... Sign in to see full entry.

What Does That Mean???

As you can probably tell from this photo, I was on the inside looking out the screen when I took this photo. It was a good day for letting in some fresh air. I had refilled the hanging bird feeder not long before and little birds had been hanging around and taking turns at the feeder. I liked birds... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Gone...But I Have Not Forgotten

It became mine that summer of 1961 when we bought our very own first house and the rose-of-Sharon tree was in the back yard. It was a namesake, or I was its namesake. We shared the name "Rose". A rock wall also had Moss-Rose Portulaca hanging in abundance and a trellis at the front porch,... Sign in to see full entry.

Summertime and the Living Is Easy

Missouri looks just like this in the Ozarks in the summertime. It is so refreshing to go with the flow in a shared canoe, swimming, cliff diving, tubing..... I must admit, its been a long time since I last did those things. But.... I'll never stop remembering, or stop having the desire for just one... Sign in to see full entry.

My Latest Research

With another birthday approaching at the end of this month I am compelled to re-examine what makes a person feel old, because I am definitely feeling that way more and more each day. I've looked old for a long time now, but I wasn't too worried about that as long as I was feeling whoopie and enjoyed... Sign in to see full entry.

Finally Back On Line

After big storm and power outage that our office says is due to "water intrusion" and being off line for four hours, I'm back on. I have no idea where the water intruded as everything in my place seems to be dry. But I'm so glad to finally have a hot cup of coffee pick-me-up. It has been quite an... Sign in to see full entry.

Scrabble Competition Day

I don't know about this. So far my mind is not working competitively, but Sis and I have planned a play off to see who is the best and along with it a playing of golden oldies to guess the singer and the song, all while getting caught up on anything and everything and maybe nibbling on goodies. It's... Sign in to see full entry.
