What's on the menu?

With the freeze-dryer up and operating, I am thinking more and more about what to process and seal away for future use. Some will be our emergency food supplies, some will be for camping and road-trips. Some will be ready-meals, some will be ingredients. The plan is to freeze-dry some stews and...

The GISHWHES challenge: to write a poem to a pet who has departed...

VIOLETTA, 15 YEARS MY FRIEND It is not you my sweet friend I lay to rest upon a bed of petals, cover over with petals of pink and yellow and white and all the gentle colors of the rose... because I could not simply consign your empty body to the earth, lying on, surrounded by unlovely dirt.

Wouldn't it be better if...?

Wouldn't it be better if we weren't so afraid of nakedness? Wouldn't it be better if we considered our bodies our children instead of our enemies?

Future Normal

When I was a kid, no one worried about butter or chicken skin, no one recycled, smoking was tolerated in just about all public places. When my parents were kids, during the Great Depression, there was lack of food, of money and the things money could buy. Things like clothing and linens and... Sign in to see full entry.

What lesson has failure taught you?

That was the question that was posted on Facebook, and I answered, To not take things personally. Someone responded with how difficult it is to conquer this one. I posted: It is a habit embedded in the subconcious, and takes conscious intent and choice to overcome it. It feels like giving up one's... Sign in to see full entry.

Going to the Movies

Charlie and I have gone to a couple of movies over the past week, one of them I wrote here about: KING ARTHUR. Last night we saw the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movie.

They told me to read...
