Chinese Maple

Sunday, March 21, 2010


The equinox has hit the acacia. Brilliant turmeric piles on the roadside. Pillows of fluffy allergen wait to become pieces of nest for the mourning doves out side my bedroom window. The birds work all hours busy collecting parts to build a safe home Will the yellow make their offspring peppery and... Sign in to see full entry.

Desert Tortoise clawing for escape

Soup in a porcelain prison pissed at the slightest sound of footsteps. I dug him up from his burrow for fear he might drown or get pneumonia. The dinosaur creature will out live me and every year we do this drama. He remembers but accustoms to light warmth and sound inside the house. Sign in to see full entry.

Global Summit

First Rain in Monarch Beach in it seems like I can't recall. While protestors are held silent in Copenhagen for fear it might get on the news, people still insist there is no global warming.

More rain and surely mud slides to follow. I won't be home to fuss about my sandbags and drains this weekend. My neighbor promises to check on the back patio that can become a bathtub if the jacuzzi overflows from too much rainfall. When the bathtub fills the top there is no emergency sump drain, it...

Jumbo squid(s) about sixteen inches long washed up in Laguna and Newport beaches. I went down to take a look at the bugeyed monsters this morning. They look like I imagine my exhusband ought to appear. Ugly. But then I love calamari sauted, fried, or pan seared. Unfortunatley they are deader than... Sign in to see full entry.
