Remembering London 1981 (OS Archive - 2011)

Lately, my mind has been wandering back to the year I lived in London.

It's the ever more frequent newsclips of Prince William and Kate that keep dragging me there, for in 1981, the city was awash with celebration for another upcoming royal wedding -- of Prince Charles to Lady Diana.

signing over my son to the Navy

Transferred from OS, today, 12/1/2012 for safe keeping here. No mean feat, getting in there.

Feb 22, 2011

Even before the Navy recruiter smiled up to our door, I knew I would sign the parental release. Against my own instincts, I had promised.

The night before, Eli and I sat down together to talk. He explained his thoughts and rationale... the positives and negatives. I was impressed by his logic and maturity as he calmly and coherently laid out…

What the President should have told the Chamber

originally published on Feb. 21, 2011 on Open Salon. I've always liked this post. 

Several days ago, President Obama addressed the national Chamber of Commerce. He told them that the current jobless recovery wasn't good and that it was their responsibility to hire people. Somehow, I don't think this approach is going to achieve results. What follows is what I think he needed to say:

Thank you for inviting me today.

We have something in common. If…

HOME ALONE: Chapter 47, 327

Yeah. Having lent the truck to my son, I'm stuck here for the duration of the evening. This might be a cockamamie idea... OK, I'm sure it is... BUT, I had this crazy thought. As a writing exercise, or just for fun, pick one of these photos, copy it to your blog and write something about it. No less than…

The Sixth Night (OS Archives - 2011)

The first night you were gone, it was different, new.

There was more space in the bed, no snoring. Youngest Son and I giggled, spent our food budget on books. 

I slept like a log.

The second night you were gone, it was still novel...peaceful, serene.

I knew you were safe, you were working, all was…
