Picking Up After Others #makeAmericabeautifulagain #leaveonlyfootprints

I have a favorite pond near where I work. It’s small, roughly a half mile in diameter and shaped like a stretched-out kidney. It often plays host to dozens of pond sliders (turtles), minnow-like fish, and large birds such as blue herons and egrets. The pond sits across the intersection, diagonal to my office building. […]

Searching and Listening #MondayBlogs #Nature #Florida

I don’t know what I want. I can’t return to the past, even if Ted’s house was still standing, its original architecture intact. This city–Tallahassee–nor the state itself has opened my heart like a tin can.

This, That, and the Other #amwriting #cats

Writers are flocking to Medium now because everyone wants that chance to make thousands of dollars a month. I’d be happy with tens of dollars a month.

With Apologies to Mr. Poe #Halloween2019 #nevermore

Black hair spills to the floor Skin alabaster, lips azure A raven pecks at the windowpane I weep, tear my clothes Doctors shake their heads Oh, my Lenore You promised us evermore I lie beside her Hot breath against cold cheek Take her icy hand from her breast Feel her fingers twitch, then grip mine […]

Mi Casa, Su Casa #amwriting #MondayBlogs

Still under construction. Mind that step. Things are changing around here. Just baby steps right now, but so far I’m enjoying the process. As I’ve already written about here and here, I’m trying to give my blog a more professional appearance. At least more organized. I’ll settle for that. I’ve added a page for my […]

Living in the Moment #HurricaneHermine

As some of you may already know, my husband and I and our three cats survived Hurricane Hermine practically unscathed.  Other than the expected power outage, we had only this heart-stopper: A rather tall pine twisted and fell between our driveway and our neighbor’s driveway, missing our cars.  As it turns out, even our fence, […]

You Can’t Get Rid of Me … At least not easily #MondayBlogs #knitting #GrandFunkRailroad

Hello, dear friends!  What an interesting week it’s been.  And exhausting given that I had the luxury of roughly two weeks of staycation.  Returning to work after any length of hiatus is never easy.  But, still, my year started off great and I hope yours did too.  To start off, when we went to have […]

I Got Almost … #MondayBlogs #Procrastination

Nothing.  Yes, dear Reader, I got almost nothing for this post today.  I have been fairly productive of late, but not with writing or blogging.  Again, it’s the knitting. A friend noted that the buttons on the baby sweater I knitted for a baby-to-be might not be appropriate for a baby. Yes, they are cute […]
