The closing of 2008

There is a song I've been listening to a lot this week. It's on a CD that I've had since 2006 but I've recently unburied it under a pile of odds and ends in my bedroom. I guess you could say I had forgotten I even had it. Thankfully I rediscovered it at the end of the year because it's an appropriate song for the beginning of this next one.

It's called World and it's sung by Five for Fighting on their Two Lights CD.



Got a package full of Wishes

during Halloween.



BUTTT I like it. SOOO I'm posting it again.



Coffin Chase



A man was walking home alone late one foggy night,



when behind him he hears:





BUMP...





BUMP...





BUMP...







Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward… Continue

Wow...

So it's Christmas day.



My parents are here. We were talking about my video habit, since my son got a new video camera and I was thinking I might have to go out and get one too because it is so cool.



Anyway, my father is a retired Lutheran minister...my mother a homemaker.



We logged into LV to watch a few of my Christmas vids from last year when David and I were in England.



And right on THE FRONT PAGE, the INITIAL SCREEN YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOG IN in the… Continue

Be of Good Cheer.

The fourth in a trilogy. (Yes, I get the irony.)



In one of the hardest periods of my life, I was jobless, flat broke, and unable to make my rent. I have a good friend in my life, Carolyn, who has always been like a surrogate mother to me. Over the 35 years that I have known her, she routinely reiterates the offer to help me if I am ever in trouble. When I told her then what kind of trouble I was in, I received a check from her two days later. It was a thousand dollars,… Continue

A Christmas Care Package

In response to my last two blogs, I was inspired to rethink my angst about gift giving by the comments of 30andOut, Tahllulah, and ScribblersSanctuary, who relish the opportunity to give at Christmas unencumbered by the anxieties I feel. Ken even sees his gifts as extensions of himself. I like that “gift as extension of self” philosophy. I’m going to try that philosophy on next year and see if it fits me.



About ten years ago, I let a financial advice guru… Continue

Ok...I give up...

I have been FORCED to download Skype as a means to keep in touch with folks I no longer see here. Even my MOTHER is on Skype...sheesh. So I guess I'd better get with the program. My Skype is Justanotherusername1. What's yours?

The Rejection of the Gift Horse

Until I was five, people could be divided into two categories: grownups and children. But at five, I became aware that there were actually three groups: There were grownups, and then there were little kids and big kids. I was a little kid. Chris W. who lived down the street was eleven—a big kid. Chris was the only big kid in my neighborhood who paid attention to me. In return, I adored him.



In the autumn before I turned six, Chris had his garage fully occupied with two construction… Continue

The Best Gift EVER!

The best gift I ever received was a talking toy chimpanzee called Chester O'Chimp. He was manufactured by Mattel in 1964, but I felt certain that Santa's elves would have no trouble making an excellent knock-off. Chester was about the size of a baby chimp, and when you pulled a string on his back, his rubber lips moved while he said any one of a dozen wise cracks. Santa really came through for me that year, big time. I loved Chester for a solid two or three years. I have not… Continue

Jalen's Moon

Friday's full moon was amazing - the closest the moon has been to us in a long time.



I wished upon it, calling it Jalen's moon.



Jalen was a beautiful 5 year old boy, the son of a friend where I work, a twin to his sister Sheriden. But last Tuesday, he died suddenly. His appendix burst, and he died. His family is heartbroken beyond belief.



Yesterday, during the visitation and memorial service, people were lined up to give their condolences to my friend and his… Continue
