"It happened while I was on my way to work and I learned about it when I got there. Everyone was crowded around a TV in someone's office. The boss made us all get back to work. Wasting time."

"We made up a country to bomb. We attacked Iraq even though they had zero to do with 9/11.  I was in Indiana in my basement office seeing online reports about what they first thought was a small private plane crashing into the WTC. And then that…"

"For me, the small changes are notable.  I work in NYC and worked there on September 11.  I have worked in NYC on and off since 1973 and went to school there. Before 9/11 one could enter most office lobbies and stroll through.  Many of…"

Time Travel

The early years of the 20th century were hopeful times. Women marched for their rights, people traveled to unsettled areas of the country to make their fortunes (and there still were unsettled areas), inventions were making news and changing the way of life for us all.I grew up some fifty years into that hopeful century, and…See More

Mary Lois Adshead commented on Ron Powell's blog post I move that we adopt America the Beautiful as the national anthem. All those in favor. ..
"I've been on this particular soap box for years myself, for the reasons Ron gives. A better song--a hymn almost, which is what an anthem ought to be. It captures America as it wants to be, is easy for everybody to sing, and touches the heart.…"

"Sounds wonderful in a way, but I think it's a con. You're better off getting out before it's too late. All your red flags are waving and your red lights are blinking. That's enough. Live and learn and remember "There's…"

Bio
Born in a utopian community in a scenic part of Alabama, I've been an actress, a journalist and public relations executive, and a producer of theatre both in Switzerland and the U.S. I now live in Kingston, NY, a nice, historical little city near my daughter and my grandsons. I've started four blogs, written three books, and enjoy my busy life as a not-so-retired person.

A Change of Life

Posted on September 11, 2016 at 8:05am 6 Comments

In September, 2001, I was in a very different place for where I sit today. This is what I wrote about this date in 2006:



I was on the first real vacation I had taken in years, beginning with a trip to Northern California for the big outdoor art show in Sausalito over the Labor Day weekend. My stepdaughter…

Bernie Sanders Is Like the Brooklyn Dodgers

Posted on April 11, 2016 at 5:41am 15 Comments

When I was 12 years old the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn. Why this mattered to me, growing up in South Alabama, I don't really know. But I and my friends listened to the World Series on the radio, and my best friends and I adored "Dem Bums" even though they had a way of losing. They had an extraordinary lineup of…

I hope so too. I've started to read "The Right to Write," and I've started to write a blog called "Blind Dating - 63 Years

Apart", based on a blind date I had when I was 18, and a semi-blind date I had today.
