Foggy-Mind Blogging

Rising from the churning sea of unformed thoughts and dashing dreams like foaming breakers pounding shore and dragging sand back from my feet, ideas come, then quickly go rejected, banished to the deep to seethe and roil, rise and fall until a loud and sudden squall points out what I had missed...

Shots Fired

One would think that I live in a bad neighborhood, or something, not one with kind people and likable neighbors, beautiful yards, flower gardens and trees and a great park across the way with lakes and fish, bird and wild life. The first I knew of something out of sorts this evening was two police... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Another One

As I was reading Ciel's blog of How the Universe Looks From Here (the first post titled Spirit and Body: It's About Balance ), the phone rang. I was pretty caught up in what I was reading and considered letting the phone ring. But, with it being Sunday afternoon, I was aware that it was time for the... Sign in to see full entry.

While We Can

It's not hot enough at the moment to be Indian Summer. It's not colorful enough yet either. No leaves have bronzed or turned to gold...no red-rimmed maples or dark purple dogwoods are gracing the lawns.

The Mortal Brain

I thought I was through with this old thing, but I find that I am missing it. Old habits die hard. I am finding it difficult to try to write a blog post with a newly-titled blog. It's like I depended on that PERPLEXITIES thought to get me started on something. I refuse to give in yet, though.... Sign in to see full entry.

Most Current Picture Of TAPS

When I first looked at the finished product, I thought that four-year-old Megan was thinking that Grandma TAPS could walk on water. She deflated my ego by exclaiming, "Oh, Grandma, you are on the surfboard and the water is holding it up." I think she has forgotten that the last time I went to the... Sign in to see full entry.

Mariner's Tale

Having convinced myself to finance this voyage, as tapsel-teerie, I departed the mainland of wishful thinking on February 28, 2004, and made port without incident on a small land populated with busy natives who paid me not the slightest attention for quite some time. After all these years, there are... Sign in to see full entry.
