7 am: Eclipse

So there’s a full lunar eclipse happening now, or tonight, I haven’t been able to determine for sure. The information I read that Commander Hadfield posted on Facebook led me to believe the eclipse would be tonight as the moon rises, which would mean I would have a […]

The 7 am Project

I have moved. I’m in the very same building that I lived in back in 2009 before life took a sudden sharp turn. It’s a different apartment, laid out the exact opposite of the last one. So it’s like being in a new place and coming home all […]

Clean Start

On the weekend I saw something that inspired me to write. At the time I thought a blog post, but upon further reflection I think it’ll be my next Editor’s Note in Bread ‘n Molasses for July. Today has been long and tiring. I’ve finally started my spring […]


When marimba rhythms start to playDance with me, make me swayLike a lazy ocean hugs the shoreHold me close, sway me more Like a flower bending in the breezeBend with me, sway with easeWhen we dance you have a way with meStay with me, sway with me Other […]

Don’t Stop Believin’

Sometimes I feel like taking the midnight train to anywhere . . . but not today! It’s too damn cold! I think. My apartment is kinda chilly. I think I need to crank up the oven, cook a roast or something. I’m distracted by Journey in the background. […]

Last Days

Up early this morning. The kitty seems to know the mornings I want to be up early. On those days she climbs into bed with me and kneads my shoulders and neck. Purrs insistently in my face. Meows and paces under the bed until I rise. She was […]

She’s Back!

So yesterday was like this crazy big day or something. I slept in a little until nearly 8 then had to rush around in my usual morning routine in order to get to the bank shortly after it opened at 10. I needed to deposit the rent before […]

Taking the Long Way

Up at 6 this morn. Feeling pretty well rested. The humidity is a killer on energy, makes me want to sleep, weighs heavy on my body, in my joints. Last night the elderly couple who live two doors down on the ground floor were having drinks (a few […]

Got It Going On

So Bon Jovi made a country album. Yeah. I’m not even kidding. I bought it. Complete with steel guitar and LeeAnn Rimes. Seriously. So, nothing really grabbed me first play. You know I am not a fan of country music. But IT IS Jon Bon . . . […]
