I spent a little time laying on the floor with my pup staring at trees from a different angle. (It did occur to me that trees are beautiful no matter what angle.). Yep. that was my lesson for the day. Oh, and it was about time I stood up and got on with things. Not… Continue reading change of perspective →
Today my area is basking in a break in the weather. No snow, a brilliant and beautiful sun, and a temperature of 37 f. The snow is melting, sidewalks drying, and my street, well, as you can see still a bit dicey but with completely dry main roads. With more doom and gloom being forecast… Continue reading a philosophical walk →
I am in a serious…not really depression…a bit blue?, maybe…at loose ends? aha!; a malaise. Let’s pause for a moment and consider what a marvelous word. Malaise. A bit depressed, blue mood, a tad twitchy, not really unwell but definitely not right and terribly Edwardian (isn’t it? or maybe Victorian, at least in English.. much… Continue reading sun please- or January – will it ever end? →
I haven’t done this in years. I have always loved to cook. In my family, everyone participated in meal preparation. Over the years, one moved from fetching canned goods, to greasing the baking dish, cleaning veggies (chopping came much much later – possibly that was just me?), all the way through to the retirement ages… Continue reading I baked! →
I awoke to find out it is January 14. I feel like my accustomed sense of time has all but evaporated. Instead of progressing in a sort of one foot in front of the other orderly fashion, I seem to be living in a kind of severely abbreviated Rip Van Wrinkle reality. Case in point.… Continue reading a lovely(ish) day →

A time to run about and accomplish tasks and get that very excellent coffee at that… Continue reading a long brief trip with a little magic →
…or my ongoing attempt to read tarot. As I wrote about last year (! I can’t believe it is another year), I had begun to learn tarot. After a rather frustrating beginning, I, with the reassurance of a dachshund tarot deck had started to make a wee bit of progress. Sort of. Since then, I… Continue reading must try harder… →
I kinda feel it in the air, or perhaps my bones. As I sit typing while watching BBC America’s Whoathon, I realize I have started on the ever growing, endlessly nagging, internal list of things ‘I need to do for my own good’, or ’have always wanted to do’, and the ever popular ’damn it… Continue reading Has the new year started? →
Georges Simenon, 1903-1989, published seventy-novels featuring his Inspector Maigret. This fabulous character has been featured in several series, (in both English and French), and well as a recent two season remake which sometimes pops up on PBS/Create TV. I first heard of Georges Simenon and his ‘Flying Squad’ while reading a novel written by… Continue reading Pietr the Latvian by Georges Simenon →
