Posted on Fri, 22 Jan 2021

Posted on Thu, 24 Dec 2020

Ah yes, Scrabble - I just bought a new one as the tiles from our old game had chipped and worn and we'd lost the X somewhere? No one knows where or when it went missing but I think, due to its point value, it has been deftly hidden. I loved your...

Ah yes, John Lennon-how I wish we could have seen the future from the past before that day in December 1980--I truly enjoyed the twists and turns of following your thought process and found I too had to go back and follow it again from the...

Lovely meandering through

Lovely meandering through better days- no cell phones, video game distractions - loved the crackling fire and stories being read to interested children- the milkman in the morning the winter's banketing snow and muffled sounds. All beautifully...

Funny you should mention crows. I had several on m lawn yesterday morning looking for their breakfast- You set the scene well here- The beating wings, its search for sustenance, the lazy day and I could feel the warmth of the day too- and 24c to...

Posted on Sat, 15 Aug 2020

What an interesting thought – the filler in our lives…and does it make it fuller? One can guess it might or it might not- depends upon the filler I suppose. Nice comparison to Citizen Kane too. Enjoyed this read.

Captivating and relatable..

Posted on Tue, 04 Aug 2020
