Well, you have several choices. You could go find a frog & take his picture, upload it to your computer and then add it by clicking the ' add image' link in the blog editor. …Continue
I have bookshelves in nearly every room of my house including the kitchen & one of 2 bathrooms. I have bookshelves in my sun room, my hallway & even one in my shed. Lets just say I have a lot of bookshelves.
I have so many bookshelves (my grandma always called them "bookcases") because when he & I combined households we each brought multiple bookshelves full of books and multiple children who also had multiple bookshelves full of books. The kids moved out, but their books…Continue
Since I have been somewhat vocal on the subject of poetry lately, I felt it was time to put up or shut up. This is a poem I have been working on for a really long time. I have added punctuation, removed punctuation... moved line breaks around & tweaked word choices, all in an attempt to give it the same melancholy cadence it has in my head. I cannot seem to let it go... yet.
i try to write
but my words are tin
wood, bone and wax
for my own broken heart
over and over i try
crumpling and casting off each effort
till there is nothing left but tears
and a wastebasket full of good-bye
Like many people who love writing, I journal. I try to journal every day, but rarely succeed; I do manage about 4-5 times a week. I journal in outdated planner notebooks and have tons of them full of... well, nonsense mainly. Journals for me are the written version of the bottom of my purse; the place where all my mind debris & miscellany ends up.
Yesterday I started a new journal in a blank planner book from 2008. Its got large pages and suits me fine. I've also been…Continue

Not sure if this is my best, but it is one of my favorites. I would hope my best is still ahead of me.

If you do not see parts of yourself or someone you know in this... check your pulse.
what a show-off
(no need to comment, just wanted to share)
When our parents home was flooded as a result of hurricane Sandy she (of course) moved them into her home. She helped them navigate through all the insurance and FEMA programs, and generally tried to make their lives easier after the disaster. Knowing her, I'm…Continue
We have an Art event in my city called Art Walk on the first Thursday of every month, so I decided to take you all with me via video to see the art. It was later in the evening by the time we got there, so a lot of this is dark... and once i saw all the holiday lights etc still up (ya know... sparkly distractions) I mostly filmed that and forgot about the art till the very end.
This is a really long video... you might wanna pack a…Continue
I posted the Take Me For A Ride In The Car Car video yesterday and only posted the first 9 or so min of the total amount filmed... i thought 9 min was excessively long already, so i saved the rest for when i become madly famous (emphasis on mad) and will need an "outtakes" reel.
then i realized one of the later clips i did not use was the one that included my happy birthday mention to Trig... so here is some more silliness for you Trig ( you can skip to the happy birthday mention…Continue
So, Trig was giving me grief to post pictures of this place i had recently driven through here in California. Generally this particular area of my neck of the woods is pretty brown because.. well we do not get lots of rain. In addition there had been a pretty large fire in the area. Anyhoo... it came back lush and beautiful green after some recent rain.
I set out to take pictures and ended up with video.. but not of the area I was talking about & mostly silliness on my…Continue

After an interesting conversation in chat about art and what type of art people have or would choose for their homes, I decided to share a small portion of whats on my walls in my home and make an open call for you all to do the same.
Doesn't have to be art... just whatever is on your walls.
I have covered nearly every inch of wall in my home with images and small shelves holding ...things. I have so much art that i ran out of walls to use and so i use one wall to rotate…Continue
