Destiny and Fate in Internet Dating

  Why do some connections work right away and others fade?  Is there any way to know what that tingle is that makes you like someone?   I have contacted people in cyberspace and it is intoxicating.  The times that it clicks are just as powerful as if you had met someone at a church function and got all hot and bothered and made out behind the rectory. 

      I am not a fan of marriage and commitment.  If the relationship…

The Renter Holed Up and Safe

   After the first week when we realized sex wasn't going to happen and that we didn't really want to talk to each other it has been pretty quiet around here.  It is nice to have another human stirring around but there is very little interaction.   We are polite and get the minimum done.

     Today I cleaned the house while he was at the Senior Lunch and his bridge game wasn't on so he came back early.  Of course there was no…

The Februaries

  Bleak landscapes with no sign of life are usually the norm in Alaska in February.  I spent twenty five years up there dreading February.  In the hospital where I worked we bought a big light that emitted full spectrum rays.  We sat some of our depressed patients in front of this big light.  It was fun but I don't know if it was worth the expense.

   I also ordered full spectrum lights for the…

   I feel like I have been thrown into the lions' den.  My astrology friend tells me the the influence of Leo in my chart  is long lasting.  At times I feel the presence of the Leos as a support net.  They are saving me from loneliness, financial hardship and lack of family support.   I have to appreciate that.

   However they annoy me to no end.  I do not like their lion ways.  They want to be at the top of the heap and they…

The Scared M&M

    The sixth creation in my M&M series is the Orange M&M.   He just joined the other five on my neighbor's front walkway.   He is afraid.

     Apparently the orange M&M was originally a pretzel and he was always afraid of being crunched.  He knew he was different than the other smooth chocolate ones and it terrified him.  

      I was wary of him/her at first.  I thought the…

"Fire all your guns at once...and explode into space"..



                       Take the world in a love embrace.

                Fire all of your guns at once

                And explode into space"

   That seems to be what the hippies thought should happen to guns and I still think like that.  Let's just get rid of them in one big bang.   Send them way out…

I had a date with a short guy.

   We met online and I forgot to ask how tall he was.  That is usually a priority for me as I am 5'11".  However we hit it off and he was only going to be in town for a few days at a conference.  Plus he was married.  It was just going to be a little prevalentine fun.

    When I pulled up and saw him standing in the doorway I thought...oh geez.  But I went over, bent down and gave him a nice hug.  We talked and it was easy and…

heart broken

                                                                I miss your finger on my point of pleasure.

                                                                You were so happy you could give me that.

                                                                That is all you gave me

My Mom Gave My Heart Away


      At the Dollar Store I found these plastic hearts that looked just perfect for a Valentine gift.  I bought one for my friend, one for me and one for my mother.   My mother loves anything sparkly and liked it when I hung it up above her desk. 

                                            Good.  I…

Making lots of mistakes.

   I am involved in another Butterfly crisis and it is because I try new ways of doing things and they don't work.  It means I have to patch, redo and plan a new way to make it all work.  There is no way to really refer to a manual or directions for making these things. 

   People who know about cement could probably help me and I can get on an internet site where there are information boards.   I know what I have to do to…

Crystal Pier Fear

             We were both excited to get to the Crystal Pier and the clouds cleared on a beautiful but chilly day.  As we walked between the cabins we could see where they were replacing some of the rotten planks and beams.  …

Voice Mail Fiction...very short

      The machine clicked on in the empty room and echoed against the bare walls.  The man who lived there had just died and all his things were already boxed up and taken to auction or given away to thrift stores.  His two kids were arguing over the grand piano that was still in the middle of the living room.

     click   "Marcie, Jeff!  Are you there?  Pick up, Pick up!  It's me, Dad.  Don't fight over things.  I'm right…

Twig Light



                     Don't mess with me.

                      I don't have much time.

                      The darkness is coming back.

                      Light will be hard to find.


                       Indigestion, pain and crippling disabilities

                       find us all.   Don't mess with me.

                       I feel fine right now.  

                       I have this twig light.   …

The Renter Report

   We are one month down in our three month agreement and time has stopped.  We drift through our days in old people haze and get along remarkably well.  I am less lonely most of the time.  There is still that feeling that my life needs some zip but as I sink deeper into this old age stuff I am just happy to be alive.  Literally.

     We share the kitchen very well.  I keep a crock pot of stuff going like pea soup and…

The Dying of the Light...Headache Pain

  Oh, my lost love.   How I wanted to be with you and talk to you forever.  I see you now with headaches and nausea fading to black.  You don't want anyone close to you.

    Oh, Mom.   You never had headaches in your life and now they are constant.  Laying down in a dark room is what you have to do.

     What are these horrible things that some people have to live with all their lives? …

orange, late, nosebleed, shoe

      The Elves were restless in the evening when a dark cloud blotted out the orange sunset.  The Elfin Princesses lived alone up in the fields of their special island, the male Elves lived down on the shore.  They knew the weather perfectly every year and this should have been the middle of summer with very few clouds forming at all. 

     The dark…

Going out in the Garden after Winter Storms

      It is a mess.  We don't really have snow here in Southern California but winter does some damage.   Some of my plants ran screaming into the house during the cold frosts.   Now they are all huddled by the door here waiting to go out again.  I see their dead leaves scattered in the back yard. I am sorry I didn't bring the plants in sooner to avoid damage.  I heard their screams but since they were silent it was easy to ignore.  Some died.…
