A Week After Brain Surgery

I thought you might like to know how my darling niece is doing after her drastic neurosurgery. She is fighting to get everything good back to where it was before and hoping and praying that nothing bad ever comes back again. The surgery was on the back of her head in a large, upside-down "U" shape.... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Like Your Relatives?

According to The New York Times, seventh cousin of Donald Trump, Kallstadt, Germany, didn't want to talk about it, and another distant relative in the next village said, "You can't choose your relatives, can you?" Chances are that if you have any relatives at all there is at least one of them that... Sign in to see full entry.

The Rest Of Aleut And Gone

Eighty eight now and living in a very nice Elder Care Facility here in Missouri, Charlotte enjoys the visits of her seven great-grandchildren and silently wonders if she has great-grandchildren somewhere above the arctic circle where the Northern Lights flash across the sky, during the never-ending...

Two-Part Aleut And Gone

The evening sun is setting in the western sky, already beginning to drop beneath the horizon, sending brilliant colors of red and gold to reflect against the floating clouds. This seems to be my writing time. Seldom do I spend the morning writing--there are so many other things to do in the day. But... Sign in to see full entry.

And So It Goes

The sky cloudless blue, the sun bright as fire, the temperature climbing, and strong wind blowing ceaselessly, has kept me inside today except for one little walk up to the office to pay next-month's rent. I did that early in the day when things were still "cool". Ribcage goes out on the porch to... Sign in to see full entry.

Stepping Out Today

The Hottest Day in the year so far and I spend it stepping out on the town with beloved, interesting, lively people, and though I enjoyed it so, I wore myself out.

Wherever You Are, Keep Cool

Working one very hot summer day at a huge Health Care and Rehabilitation Center, I was happy to be there and enjoying running around in the coolness of the place to take care of my patients when the air conditioner gave out.

The Channeler

An old experience with my writing re-edited: As I Remember It She's been gone now for seventeen, almost eighteen, years, but it seems like yesterday that I drove down with her to the County Seat in the Ozark country of Missouri for moral support as she had to answer a subpoena for a case of...

It's Been A Long Time

I don't write many poems anymore. I don't know why. But, I used to write poems. This poem means a lot to me. I originally wrote it years ago about, and to my husband, the father of my four sons. Even though we lasted 30 years married, and another 30 as friends, circumstances caused our parting and... Sign in to see full entry.

Where Did I Put My Glasses?

As a solitary ancient with straggly hair, in a well-worn and faded cotton muumuu dress, I sit at home remembering the days when I did it myself. "Did what?" you ask. "Did what they're doing." "Who?" "...my all-grown-up grandsons." "What are they doing?" "Seeing the wonders of nature in places I've... Sign in to see full entry.
