Month: March 2008


My eagles have come back! Two of them, on the river ice, flying past my window, all afternoon. Glorious! The ducks are also back. I feel somewhat sad for them huddled on the ice waiting for the water to come. They announced the Magnetic Hill concert for this […]

Best Days of My Life

There’s something about listening to Bryan Adams Reckless album that puts the butterflies into my belly. In particular the songs “Summer of ’69,” “One Night Love Affair” and “She’s Only Happy When She’s Dancing.” That was the album to get for Christmas in 1984. I was 15 years […]

Back on the Chain Gang

I seem to have a focus problem today. I start one task and then when I’m half-way through another completely different task, I remember that, oh yeah, I was doing something else . . . yeah, it’s THAT kind of a day. And I’m back, having been away […]

My, My, My, M-M-My . . .

When you’re standing at the bus stop outside the Irving Mainway on St. Patrick’s Day with your flaming red hair and bright blue eyes glaring in the sunshine, knowing you should have worn make-up to cover your blooming freckles, and a con who has just been released from […]

Marching Onward and Upward

Yesterday was a really good day for me. I know Sunday generally is a good day, that’s why I love them, but yesterday was particularly good. I accomplished everything I wanted– got over 10,000 steps and nearly 1500 words and ate right and exercised and all that kind […]

Angel of Harlem

A sunny Sunday morning. It is Easter and I’m home alone, no eggs, no chocolate, no roast pork with mashed potatoes, gravy, baked carrots, and certainly no apple crisp or pie of any kind. When you can’t trust yourself not to partake, just stay home! No, I’m kidding. […]

Original Sin

Crazy weather the past couple of days, tons of snow, freezing rain, and so on, non-stop for days on end. With April I am ready for seasons to change. I miss being able to walk at French Fort Cove, being able to walk at all really. The sidewalk […]
