My Life is being Held up for No Reason

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?

Marketing Tip: Set Up an Author Page on Amazon

Did you know you probably have an Author Page on Amazon? Amazon automatically creates Author Pages for most authors, but if you haven't claimed yours, you aren't taking full advantage of this option. Setting it up on Amazon's Author Central site is easy, free, and a great way to connect with readers. In addition to information about your book(s), your page can include your photo and bio (where you can include your e-mail address, a link to your Facebook page or website or anything else you…

[BREAKFAST WITH THE MUSE] What I Have Learned from Leaping Off the Cliff

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…

My Journey to South of Everything



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,…

Love's Possessions

I asked 
the question: 
who is for me, 
if any one? 
And 
the answer 
returned: 
no one 
everyone.

, rags .

wake up to see the shy pink.

clouds.

so we stood together working

pushing rags through to

make things neater.

others searched the lines,

the crossing, looking

for reincarnations.

we thought they were

sheltering from the rain,

they did not seem to know,

when really they should.

the rugs are made of rag.

Georgia On My Mind ...

Georgia On My Mind ... 

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!) :)

Airline Passengers! Is There A Right To Recline?

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…

Beatnik Blues

Lost in place 
is how
I am 
seeking 
self in situ,
in every/no-where; 
wondering 
what may become of 
this
wandering, 
when
abject restlessness
is
settling for
my
satiated soul.

Search, not Rescue

My hand 
in 
yours 
clutched 
like a straw 
drawn 
perhaps too 
short 
in this 
love-life.

Quantum Haiku
