Oh boo, I have to work during the day because:
a. People who are not rich have day jobs.
b. I am getting older/closer to retirement.
c. I need money for food.
d. Vacations are finite.
e. Work is a waste of time, and wasting time is what life is mostly about, right?

Like many women of her generation, my mother was deeply concerned with appearances. We weren’t well off, but she managed always to dress herself and her children nicely. We never went out without being perfectly groomed. We were taught excellent manners, and any time guests stepped foot in our house, they…Continue

The idea of writing a novel was as distant as the moon the first 50 years of my life. Even though working as a journalist getting good quotes was the key to good writing, I feared creating dialogue on my own. And I knew that a novel needed dialogue. Therefore, it was in the backlog of my mind until in the mid 1990s, married to a pro boxer and soccer personality, living in Montevideo, Uruguay in a huge house on the Rambla with the beach and ocean spread outside the windows,…

wake up to see the shy pink.
so we stood together working
pushing rags through to
make things neater.
others searched the lines,
the crossing, looking
we thought they were

they did not seem to know,
when really they should.
the rugs are made of rag.

I hope you had a great holiday weekend. Good on this end, though I must admit, I sorely missed the 4th of July celebrations of Atlanta ... pang-pang in this southern girl ... but I did manage to wrangle some fried chicken in Negril (sinfully delicious!) :)
I'm currently working on "Gail's Story" ... this is the spin-off novel…Continue

It’s called the Knee Defender. But I prefer to think of it as the Schmuck Identifier. It was dreamed up by a tall man who was tired of getting his knees slammed whenever the person seated in front of him on an airplane reclined. So he designed a device that, when attached to your tray table, prevents the person in front of you from reclining. At all.
He didn’t just quietly go about protecting his own knees. He marketed the Knee Defender online. Sales took off. And the in flight…Continue

no time to do anything,
if we are busy
winding the clock,

Twenty-one people of different ages have one thing in common; they’re within six months of their deaths. They’ve endured the battle of the medical system as they sought cures for their illnesses, and are now settling in to die. Some reconcile, some don’t. Some are gracious, some not. As Nina Angela McKissock,…Continue
