The mornings where I live are not much to shout about but there are those few that often catch one off guard and this was one of those for me. It felt as though there was a ferocious storm in my room. Anyone would have thought I had been caught in a wind tunnel at the rate at which this one was...

It was a time – from the turn of the 20th Century through the 1960s – on California's Monterey Peninsula when writers, poets, artists, actors and photographers, even marine biologists, hung out together, crossing paths frequently. Do creative people still mix that way in this country? Maybe. Maybe...

April 16         Not Fur but Fin   You can’t delay the river, I’ve tried, all it does is distort.  I block the flow and swamp ensues, mighty oaks waist deep in water.  The current is strong and I fear being swept away, not realizing I was born to swim.  Dreading the swim...

April 14, 2010 Wednesday I'm trying to make permanent changes in my life. The first and probably biggest change is eliminating junk tv.

  We are a society of addicted consumers. Each household a mini-machine earning our way to the next acquisition. Take stock in your household. Look around for a few minutes. How much “stuff” do you have? The sort of useless “stuff” whose only purpose in life is to be dusted. Yeah, sure it’s...

I surfed over today and realized I hadn't blogged since Februrary! Where have I been?  Well, I could say I've been searching for myself. That's true enough but it's an ongoing project and certainly not a good excuse for not blogging. Life has a funny way of slipping past when there aren't enough...

My lost crayons [A page from my diary] Today I visited my childhood residence. It was same room I left before 20 years back, first glance of room was realizing me length of 20 years. Suddenly seven uneven parallel lines of different colors on the wall, attracted my focus, and I got lost in my...

Yesterday, I did a tarot card reading for one of my characters.  I'm not sure what made me do it.  I haven't used my tarot deck in years, though I think of the arcanas often, mostly because I was once given a reading and told I was a double hermit. The Hermit isn't a bad sign despite the negative...

  Knowledge is linear Part II Welcome back, Let me conclude this segment, which I had started earlier, that is prior to the Easter Season. An important factor to consider is that the acquisition of knowledge of Good and Evil does not initially afford us a benefit nor is it an asset, but indeed a...

My younger son owns a piece of property in New Mexico.  He bought it on eBay about twelve years ago.  First there was the stock market craze he went through when he was ten, and then there was the property craze.  After he sold his stocks, he bought a one and a quarter acre piece of property in the...
