Most Productive Day Ever

Not about writing. Nothing like that. But I was up on the roof by 8:30 a.m. cleaning a gutter and getting pine needles off my roof. I have this gargantuan pine tree right next to my bedroom window. It's ancient. I love it. I've heard pine trees described as majestic or imposing, but it's location, and the way my cat sits there staring at it so fascinated, this pine tree is--sexy, I suppose, full of shadows.i also got a big red rock to use as a step off the porch. Planted some lupine on either…See More

It Doesn't Take a Village

If the kids aren't around, it just takes me--and a very full Saturday to do everything that needs to be done around here. For instance:a.) Radioactive cleanup in hazmat yoga gearb.) Taking the California Zephyr Amtrak train with a sleeper car to dreamland--no, no, not now--that comes later tonight, way later.c.) Hibernation like a bear, with all fat retaining faculties intact, no problem--free cat included with long-term nap. NO, wait--that comes later, way later, after all the superfund site…See More

A Life Dotted with Archetypes

First, we spring out of bed to make bacon and eggs. We may be buxom and wheeling down the stairs in a flowing silk robe, we may be hobbling and on pain meds that make us feel giddy 24-7, but we eat breakfast first. Then we linger over tea, thinking not about the supreme court (caps?) and big gay marriage decisions, but about what jewels to wear this day, and about the archetypes that loiter so insistently, like skateboarding at a 7-11, around the various cobwebby corners of our lives.They…See More

Kindergarten Wisdom

We've all heard this a million times but it resonates. In life, if you don't act like a big baby, you don't have problems--until other people around you start acting like big babies.Kindergarten Wisdom I am drinking a smoothie made out of blueberries, swiss chard, almond milk, two dates, and a frozen banana. It's lunch. This summer I want to try using watermelon in a smoothie and see how that works out. No one ever does that.…See More

Muddying the Waters

Who splashes in the bathtub? No doubt, the best ones for muddying the waters are:a. mean little mermaids who like to create more workb. adorable little babies with plump bellies and Playdoughc. giddy social workers after a hell weekd. fishe. dark matterf. Shirley Jackson, yes, in the tub, your tub--giving a readingg. synchronized swimmers, just warming upIf I had any energy I might do the same. No splashing for me tonight though. I've got no zip. no zeal, no nuttin'. Just courting sleep at this…See More

Chicken Soup with Hormones (and Antibiotics)

I remember a children's book (from my youth) called Chicken Soup with Rice. Some activist could do one called Chicken Soup with Hormones (and Antibiotics) since everyone is so concerned about the use of those things. Wait, the RBGH is just for cows. That's the stuff that Europe and Canada don't use, but USA does. Chickens have breasts but not that they nurse with. We don't need to make chickens lactate more. We have so much control over everybody in the animal kingdom, it's ridiculous. What if…See More

Breaking Bad

I am feeling sorry for all the characters on this show. Even the monsters. Sometimes especially the monsters. TV has changed a lot since I grew up with The Waltons.Binge-watching lately. Until I dissolve into the couch. Started covering my eyes when it gets too gory.See More

Life in the Woods

It's so dramatic living in an old house the woods, what with fighting off all the vermin. You have squirrels, mice, rats in the house, and/or garage, and/or attic, and you try everything possible to evict them--and too keep them from tearing down all your insulation, gnawing all the value out of your property before they leave. I always think that if my cat were the size of a mountain lion, she would be terrifying and I'd put her out. Thank God rats and mice are just pea-brained little vermin.…See More

LOL! Maybe my NEXT mansion will be in Beverly Hills. :) My mom worked all over -- Warrington, Doylestown... Bristol? I think she had some sort of training (as a caseworker) in Perkasie. Ah, PA... Don't ask me why. But, the old Pennsauken Mart and Cherry Hill mall (NJ) just leaped into my head. Get out!!
