This too shall pass. Not a fan of this phrase.  Sure, it may pass, of course it will pass.  The sun comes up and goes down and days go by and in due course, things pass.  I get it.  That doesn't mean they pass well, or things are better after they pass, or that you don't die...

March 24   PARADOX OF PARADISE   Paradise is created when I collect paradox and live with it.  Paradise is the set of acceptance and suspended disbelief.  If anything is possible, accepting what comes is less heart-wrenching.  If I arrest my misgivings, gratification in the...

Just a quick shout out that...Well, see the title.   I've been writing since it's hiatus and its sporadic entries, but I've been lacking writing consistency for quite awhile.   But I've been more consistent, though not at the same time every day, since earlier this week.  ...

February 20       TIME IS HERE TO STAY     I have passed my days emptying them like breadcrumbs onto a trail of rescue.  Expecting them to facilitate redemption, and if not that, at least retreat, I release an audible sigh as I let each evening slip to the path behind...

January 29   MY MOTHER’S FACE     The way that age pours down my mother's face when she is sad reminds me that grief runs through my blood.  Generation after generation has been transfused with anxious woe.  Heartbreak vexes minds full of fear.  There is no easy way to...

Two quick questions.  Any advice offered would be appreciated: The owner of a local boutique has offered me the chance to have a book signing at her shop.  I've had a few pieces published, and the rights have reverted back to me by now.  I've already requested 25 copies of a snazzy-...

January 5     THE BAG   I saw a bag at the top of a tall tree.  Full of air, the wind pushing it; it rocked back and forth, held by the stub of a branch.  It is so beautiful, so lucky, so blessed. My sponsor frowns.  “Beautiful, yes,” she says.  “Lucky and blessed...

Do you wear a watch?  I do.  I'm not always on time just because I wear a watch, but I do like to know what time it is without having to ask someone.  Part habit, part throw-back, part old lady, I guess, but knowing the time is a comfort to me. In my family, great events were...

December 30     Einstein’s Apple   Time is a player in every play, forever running forward even as I try to claw my way into the past.  If I don’t provide a role, time writes itself in without regard for my intended plotline.  Like the weather, time is by turns gentle and...

And any list that includes Kafka is - of course - stellar. But these books do show what can be done - and done expertly - in relatively few pages. The longest is Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen at 182 pages. The shortest is The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka at 55 pages. So - jump in and read. [DE]...
