Writing Again!

Stories pile up in my head when I don’t feel like writing – most never to be remembered once I am at a keyboard. But lately, I’m wanting to write more than I wanna sleep…Okay, that’s probably not good but we’re not talking crazy, stay up all night, here. Have you ever noticed that if…

Maybe We Need to Work on This Getting Along Thing

Look, I’m as guilty as anyone else of getting way too riled up over some political or religious comment – or personal or innocent or you name it. We tell ourselves not to talk about politics or religion – which makes zero sense. We Americans live in a democratic republic – we HAVE to talk…

So Yeah, Blogging is Still a Thing

Probably doesn’t seem like it to anyone else – I haven’t been writing regularly like I want. Yeah, I did start a new novella (novel? We’ll see) but haven’t finished True Slayers on my other blog – yet. I know where I’m going with it but I need to reread it to get back in…

Anniversary

It’s been a year today.¬† I was homeless for five days and on July 17, 2017, I wasn’t homeless anymore. My God is SOOOOOOOOO AWESOME! I’m tired and sick a lot. I can’t stay on my feet very long at all. My teeth are reaching the point of out and out rebellion. So many of…

My Sweet Love: 8/2015 – 3/10/2017

I don’t think I’d have made it these last few years without her. Sounds stupid, she was just a little cat. She liked to ride on my shoulders. She enjoyed going shopping with me (where she was allowed) and didn’t mind letting people pet her. I’ve never seen or had a sweeter cat. February was…

On Road to Recovery

No, not from my cat addiction. As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t been posting lately. It’s because I hadn’t been feeling well. I did figure out what was causing it, but I haven’t snapped back as I’d hoped. Still, I am feeling better and becoming more active. I’ve rediscovered my weaving addiction…

Reading Comprehension or Memory: Which Goes First

In my experience the very first thing to go is the bladder – at least for us girls. From there it’s all downhill. Had you asked me Friday or any time in the month previous, I’d have sworn that the letter I got from SSDI stated my next check would come on February Third. No…

Irritation From Facebook

A young acquaintance is on her honeymoon. She posted today about an incident where people in a line made unkind remarks about her appearance. First off, they are idiots – what they said is flat out untrue. Which, of course, we’ve all assured her. And which, not surprisingly, isn’t working as well as it should….

Silently Now

A few years ago, I watched a silent film made in China – what we old people¬† would have called the late, late show because it was late and I couldn’t sleep – called The Goddess.* It was eye-opening – dramatic with modern, difficult themes. Chinese or not, wasn’t the Victorian Era through to the…

Twining, not Twinning

Yep, they are really two different words. Twining (pronounced like the tea guys) is a form of weaving. You’ve seen it on baskets because it’s very common in basketry, not so much in textiles. I learned years ago at a workshop sponsored by the University of Alabama. It’s simple to do and easy to get…
