The March is on!!

The Marches are on!

All over the country... 

It is powerful, exciting, crucially important -- for all. 

I don't have Foolish Monkey's gift of narrating events, but here is the link to The Guardian's live stream of the event. Not sure how or if I could embed, but...…

A Decade Older Overnight

Posted on November 6, 2016 at 12:39pm 31 Comments

I woke up in the middle of the night last night (this morning, really), some part of my being attuned to the emptiness in our eighteen year-old son’s room next door.  Turning on the light I read for a couple hours, reading Saffron Dreams, about a Muslim widow of 9/11, her husband in the towers, the senseless end of a beloved’s life, her trying to make sense of the world in its aftermath.…

Halloween is the best. The horror and gore version of Halloween, not so much for me, but the masquerade, the costumery, the spectacle.

The fun. That’s Halloween.

Our local theater town throws a parade each year on Halloween afternoon, Main St. closed to traffic, while the Children’s…

Open Calls Catch Up

Posted on March 25, 2016 at 12:28pm 16 Comments

First was the open call about books on your bookshelf. “What’s On Your Bookshelves?”I wanted to join in on that one but all the books were stacked in the hallway rather than sitting on their shelves.…

The Affair

Posted on March 23, 2016 at 1:00pm 27 Comments

(When someone wrote this, I had to respond....it got me writing, anyway!)

Her name is Isabel. I’ve known about her my entire life; she is the neighbor who slept with my father over and over again when I was a baby. Isabel was also married, they were good friends of my parents.…

The First Valentine ~ back when straight marriage was banned

Posted on February 14, 2016 at 2:38pm 7 Comments

The legends of the beginnings of Valentine’s Day are varied and confused — some say there were actually three different men called Valentine back in the day, the days of ancient Rome, that…

Posted on November 11, 2015 at 2:30pm 12 Comments

Excerpts of a WWII Private’s letters home while stationed in N. Africa and Italy, a young man who formerly didn’t even know how to drive.

I was struck by a certain innocence in these letters, what knowledge of events we only gained in hindsight… and …

Love your stories! The faded photograph one in particular. I have some of those also.  The renters, the clear way you describe them? They haunted my thoughts for weeks after reading yours.  Yet, comforting somehow.  ty!
