Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,
and have not breasts, and though I have the gift of
prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge;
During a late night chat with Nanatehay – who knows his history – I promised to post a song from one of my concerts Children of Columbus. In due course I will; but first, a little history.
Columbus is credited with discovering the New World; but the truth is, he never…
I want to write that I bounced back from this the very next day with a can-do attitude! For every rejection I got, I sent out two more queries!! Carpe damn diem!!!
I want to write that I did not take it personally. This was just business and business is about money, not propping up feelings. And they were rejecting my books, after all, not me.
I want to lie and make myself look like a better and stronger person than I am. But I did not race forward with the same…Continue
My friend is still very poorly in hospital. There's a very good chance he's not going to wake up. His wife is (understandably) in pieces about this. He's a wonderful, funny man and I'm still uncertain quite what I should be doing apart from sporadic calls to his wife and cooking food ready to take round on Monday (when Euan is back at school). It's not that I'm bad at grief, it's that I'm bad at being helpless.
To avoid sitting here, miserable and idle, I am watching…
MAY 7, 2009 I wrote the following:
The war of terror
The wedding of the young couple in the mountain vale between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The band started playing and the people dancing. The drone coming from the sky. The missile from the drone. The newly wed couple and all their friends killed. The village leader wrote on his diary: 'Americans again killed fifty people'.…Continue
Pat Patriot, the mascot of the New England Patriots, has been arrested in a prostitution sting.
The Boston Herald
The buzzer on my alarm clock wakens me, and I stare groggily at the dial. I try to peel my eyelids open but they stick to my eyeballs. Apparently the I.W. Harper I drank last night has both intoxicating and mucilaginous properties.…Continue
About a year ago we joined some good friends of ours for dinner in their home. They had other guests also and we had a great time getting to know some new people. Daniel and I love acquainting ourselves with people of varied backgrounds, making our own lives more interesting and diversified.
On this particular…Continue
I don’t know how it happened or why. All I did was bend down and unclip Max’s chain from his collar. I didn’t feel anything pop, but apparently it dang sure did. I’ve got a pain in my lower back that literally shuts me down. If I’m sitting or laying down it is pure misery to stand up. If I’m standing up it’s a chore to sit down. Now, once I’m either standing or sitting, the world is good. However, movement to change my status hurts like the dickens. Now, I know I will live through…Continue
Between marriages to my college-professor first husband and my rabbi/poet second, I dated lots for about 15 years. And after my dear second husband died, I dated for another five years, sporadically, before marrying my lovely present husband, the lawyer.
My marriages were all to fine men. But when you live and date in big cities such as NYC and Miami, you’re bound to meet and go out with a variety of of people, including some not-so-great ones.
In the recent "two truths and a…Continue

When I moved into the apartment building there was a door in between my door and my neighbors door that had a half number on it. As the years went by I saw what the place was used for and it remains in my memory to this day. It was used by the math department at the nearby University.
Every month a group of students gathered outside the front door and a large truck of plastic balls…Continue
I was in a position where I couldn't access the internet daily . Also, some browser told me that my gmail was "redirecting" and then could never ever ever complete, or some such thing.
I figured I couldn't write anything and just let it lie there . What if I got a lovely comment or two and just wouldn't respond. I silently hoped that OS would revive itself. There is no reason, that so many of us might understand, why it had to flounder and then die( or "pass" as everyone now says as…Continue

The visionary has been defined as one who can see light in the darkness. Ever on the lookout for hopeful signs in a dusky world, I’m putting my background in sociology and future studies to work as a talent scout, scanning the cultural horizon for potential visionaries whose eyesight -- or night vision -- is better than mine, and who have the remarkable ability to foresee or intuit (or even…Continue
You’re in “The Athenian Room.” In Chicago. It’s a few years back. Tina Fey is about to arrive and order the Greek chicken. And if you’re not careful, you’ll miss her. Should that happen, you might also miss a glimpse into improvisation for the theater, a force in American popular culture that winds…Continue
