On mourning a public figure

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 11:00pm 4 Comments

It’s an odd thing to mourn the passing of a public figure. I’m not referring to the “saddened to learn of their passing” kind of sentiment, but the kicked-in-the-gut misery of grief that’s usually reserved for the loss of those we knew and loved. It seems somehow inappropriate to truly grieve for people we didn’t know—but knew of. There really isn’t a name for this variety of grief nor any social convention for comforting those experiencing it.

I’ve been deeply mourning the…

What I Miss About Having a Dying Dog

Posted on November 7, 2017 at 10:03pm 6 Comments

1) Never worrying that spoiling him rotten with all of his favorite treats will be bad for him.

2) Having someone to eat up all the cheese, cookies and ice cream in the house so that I won’t be tempted by them.

Homeward Through the Haze

I live 70 miles south of where the fires are blazing in Sonoma County this week. Today I drove to a hillside a mile away from my house and took pictures of the air. The air quality is rated as dangerous. I will not take Buddy for a walk in it and he has cabin fever. I do too, now that I think of it.…

I sprained my knee last week, the knee that doesn’t have any cartilage in it anymore and that no longer completely bends or completely straightens out. Seriously, devastatingly crunched it, my leg folding like a jackknife as I fell straight down on it.
 
It’s been hard to walk since then. I conserve all my steps, saving up…

Completely, utterly, addictively, excruciatingly delicious.

Yeah, that's right. I bought the "share" size and didn't share with anyone. Get your own, people, get your…

If it can't be laughed at, it hasn't happened, ever.

If we can't laugh we'll drown in absurdities and socially acceptable small-talk requirements.

YIKES ! ...just read your blog on VH about the dolls. It makes me sad that if this was 30 years ago I'd assume it was some nice old grandma who makes dolls leaving presents to bring joy....now ? Serial killer. No doubt.
