This I wrote to Koobug   I have a load of untitled poems in a folder on my lap top, and it is so over whelming to figure out what is what, I mean I really have to go through tons of them. Right now I am absolutely unsure how to put a book together. I have this new life and old life. I don't...

So I've been away for much longer than usual.  Exhaustion, work, sinus infections and some serious insomnia (so bad that, despite a lifetime with the issue, I had to take a sick day for it for the first time), but I'm plugging along.  Here are a few quick considerations in the...

September 11   Louet   Consolidating fuzz into yarn makes me a friend to sheep everywhere.   Spinning the filaments of truth into cables of life does not impress the mutton in anyway, but sure does my mental health a world of good.  Free floating fiber is bad for my lungs...

I value work and I am grateful for work. Anyone who’s lost a job will never take work for granted. Does not matter whether the job is small, I will put in time and effort. I remember what it felt like losing my source of income. I remember the fear and uncertainty I faced not knowing what to do...

  Labor Day marks the end of summer.  It used to be the last day it was acceptable to wear white or seersucker, but I'm pretty sure that's changed.  When I lived back east, school started after Labor Day. Oddly enough, Labor Day is also the second largest shopping day of the year....

It's a cool, quiet Thursday, rich with Autumn textures.  A cuppa joe is in me.  The first meetings are over, the emails all answered.  It's a good time for a work rant, another chorus in my first world blues. This is the email chorus.  Sing along if you're familiar with it....

My company pushes attention to maintaining a life - work balance.  While you're expected to put in eight hours of work, you need to take care of yourself.  Sleep well, eat well and exercise.  Have a social life.  Celebrate living and enjoy hobbies.  Spend time with your...

I want to express admiration for a presentation I attended today.  This is work related so you are dismissed if you're not interested, the work being computer, data and Internet security. The presentator, a high level employee of my corporation, made a point this morning that struck me as one...
