  Oh the land of Ireland is so beautiful on a November morning at 7 a.m. The mist drifts in small wispy clouds above the green fields, lingers on the stone walls, kisses the reeds by the lakes, hugs the houses scattered in random out of the way places, squeezes itself like candyfloss into the...

The Bay Bridge was closed, so I took the long way home after dropping off Sandra at SFO. She was off to Paris via New York City. "Be good to yourself," she said with a kiss and a hug at the curb. On the way home I kept the radio off and took in the flow of fog-laced pastel panoramas through the wet...

  April 25       Coming Home to Work     I have arrived home to a beehive; everyone industrious, everyone filled with purpose, everything buzzing right along.  My response to this of course is anger.  I have a sting and I want to use it.  I have a place...

“Pancakes please!”  M2 asked with a big smile on her face as I walked in the door. I had to grin and bear the stress of dealing with my cancelled flight.  I waited it out for 10 hours before I finally boarded my plane back home. Barbara has been with us for almost 20 years and she’s great...

My daughter complains that I move too quickly, always rushing to get home.  She says that I walk too fast and everything I do seems to be an emergency that requires I be home as soon as possible. “Slow down mom, you are walking too fast.”  “Why are you rushing?”  She asks. I look at...

I've recently started participating in an open project with a photographer and a handful of writers that I think makes for a very good exercise and one I would recommend folks pay a visit to and consider participating in. At the very least it would be great if a few of you took a look at the story...

In yesterday’s post I mentioned MEDIUM COOL – a 1969 movie written and directed by Haskell Wexler and focusing on the anti-war protests that led to violence at the Democratic National Convention in August of 1968.  I suggested putting the title on Netflix if you’ve never seen the film.  And I’ve...
