BOOKSTORES

It hasn’t been the same here since Borders closed. In my mind it was a real bookstore, with new, classics, non-fiction, best-sellers, and magazines. I know for certain at least three writing groups met at their Seattle’s Best coffee shop regularly. Borders presented guest authors and held book... Sign in to see full entry.

SEPTEMBER SOON

In news from The Center, which used to provide material for Tuesday Blogit bits, it seems Joyce the morning receptionist, will “no longer be working here.” There had been urgent emails from Sara – the director – and from Joan – the volunteer coordinator – seeking subs this week and next. I didn’t... Sign in to see full entry.

SOUP ACAPELLA …

In line with Dr. Kausandra’s recommendations about healthier eating (stuff I knew but hadn’t been doing) I shopped yesterday and chopped this a.m. to make soup acapella using fresh veggies and unprocessed foods – except for seasoning with Knorr’s French Onion mix. I started with a cup of dried beans... Sign in to see full entry.

GRANDSONS, GREAT…

Sixteen plus years ago I lived in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, worked at Seattle Central Community College in the Capitol Hill area, and once in a while got together with my youngest son and his partner for lunch, or spent time with my grandkids – high schoolers at the time, who lived in the...

IT’S ONLY A CARTOON….

I was in the kitchen, the two boys were in the living room watching cartoons. The animation that day was “Jack in the Beanstalk.” In a departure from the print versions, a musical background featured some character – Jack, as I remember -- singing a desperately sad song “my cow, how sad, I’ve got to...

ATTENTION SPAN

Lately my attention span is much shorter. I’m out of patience with “breaking news” over-explained by a panel of correspondents. I waste little time before switching channels when they start analyzing the subtleties of a hostile tweet. Dammit! I can read. I was disappointed our local paper didn’t... Sign in to see full entry.

EXPERIENCE

We all gotta find out for ourselves the ‘rules’ that govern what we do and when. Like we think at seventeen we know what life is all about and our folks failed to get the memo, all you have to do is …. (fill in the blank) and all the pieces will fall into place. Yup, we find out for ourselves the... Sign in to see full entry.

SEPTEMBER SONG

“For it’s a long, long time from May to December but the days grow short when you reach September.” “As the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame We haven’t got time for the waiting game.” “And the days dwindle down to a precious few, These last few days I’ll spend with you.” I do not remember...

ARETHA

Once again a light has gone out in this world, and a voice that linked us in joy has stopped singing. I am so sorry for the loss, and yet so grateful for all the Queen of Soul brought to us. Don’t give up. Keep singing your truth and joy and possibility. We are all children of the universe, we have... Sign in to see full entry.

SCHOOL DAYS...

Doesn’t seem so long ago that summers were “endless.” We’d celebrate the last day of school and the report card that showed us passed to the next grade with little ceremony. We’d done what was expected of us. There was the old swimming hole, where we’d cool off on hot sunny days, and long mornings... Sign in to see full entry.
