This Letter I Got in My Email This Morning

Posted on August 31, 2017 at 11:21am 50 Comments

Not sure how I got this letter, and I've never heard of Reagan Reports (although I've heard of Michael Reagan), but it showed up in my inbox this morning, titled, Trump Backed into Corner, Sharks are Circling (why I clicked on it).

This is what *some* are being told/believing!! I was shocked:…


"Brothers and Sisters" - An Introduction by Dick Gregory

Posted on August 20, 2017 at 1:00pm 11 Comments

(I write this in homage and as farewell to a man I never knew who helped shape my adult views on food, nutrition and life so fully.)

I’d never heard of Dick Gregory when I bought the book, didn’t know him as comedian, or activist, or actor, or at all. After reading his introduction to the book, I thought of him then — and continue to today — think…

Beth Nakamura from The Oregonian posted this photo on twitter this morning, taken up in Portland - it perfectly encapsulates just who Asha, Taliesin's mom, is.

It is absolutely no wonder to anyone who has met her that her son was also who he was.…


Beautiful Human Down

You might have seen it on the news, two Muslim girls being harassed on the Portland, Oregon, MAX train, two people try to intervene, they both are 'viciously attacked' and killed by the racist harasser.....

You might also remember a post I did last November, about my son attending a party where suddenly a young man is murdered....


Today I…

Spring in the Neighborhood, Winter on the Hills

Posted on April 1, 2017 at 11:12am 29 Comments

If you're ever taking a walk in my town, as you turn onto the one street that has buried their telephone poles, this is the unencumbered view.

Thought I'd share before heading to the garden for some much needed hours in the dirt...

Happy April -- no fools.…


Live Stream: Women's March on Washington

Posted on January 21, 2017 at 10:46am 24 Comments

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 Parade

Posted on October 30, 2016 at 10:00am 25 Comments

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…

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!
