The Cayman Islands Air Banner - Four - Sun on the Rocks



Clarity turned backwards and let Taimi zip her diving neoprene wetsuit, preventing Blond to cut his hands too deeply on her lower back. She was excited to take her first diving class in order to get the Padi diving license. She saw Buddha Talk tilt his head towards the right ear of Flower, dangerously tipping the bench inside the diving shop, and…

I lived in a boarding house, The Chalet, in Berkeley, in 1961. There were 30 girls crammed into an old three story house with one bathroom!  I didn't have all that much in common with my roommates; one was a bible thumper and the other a girl from a small town who had been a big fish in a small pond, and was having trouble adjusting to a large pond.  I was a freshman, the term first year student, not having been invented yet.

And then I got lucky.  A very sophisticated sophomore from…

Hello before the apocalypse visit my truth in advertising store.

Hi some of you might remember me from Open Salon which now seems to have completely shut down. For those of you who haven't noticed they now claim, "OpenSalon is down for a moment, as we upgrade its underlying architecture. Sit back, relax, and check back in a few minutes." Exactly what this means remains to be seen and I am as skeptical as any of you. For What it is worth I am now posting at Blogspot if they do…

Movie Review: The Hedgehog

Over at Netflix, in their Foreign Film category, nestled like a small jewel between the better known, flashier favorites so many have come to admire, is a film I cannot get out of my thoughts. Based on Muriel Barbery's novel, The Elegance of…

Vertical is Good

        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…

Marilyn Monroe is still remembered and still known, fifty years after her death?  Why?  How come even young 18 year olds think they know her?  It is because she created a myth of what the ultimate Aphrodite Woman could be.  She…

I Will Go to Imperial Beach: Seeing “John from Cincinnati”

What does it mean for an atheist to write that a one-season television series can serve as a novena against genocide, if only it is watched?  This is what I’m saying HBO’s 2007 surf drama “John from Cincinnati” is: a 9-day 10-hour prayer for the intention of preventing a massacre of the world’s Muslims, by breaking the fever of the so-called developed world that has held sway since 9/11 and exhibited itself in the celebratory responses to the death of Osama bin Laden. 

As an atheist,…
