The Corona Dance…

While we dance around all that is going on in this world, I have decided that my dance is undefinable.   I love to see couples dancing.  The grace, the movements, the communication between them as they traverse a dance floor.   It is something that has always inspired awe in me. I just spent a fewContinue reading “The Corona Dance…”

Out for a Drive…

Thought I would share my thoughts from today  with you all.  Earlier today hubby and I took a drive.  We left the house shortly after noon, and went out of the garage to get into the car.  We were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes so very happy to be able to annoy people again,Continue reading “Out for a Drive…”

Ennui…

I just texted a dear friend and after exchanging our days today, she told me to go write something.  I replied that everything seemed negative in my head, but I was trying to get something written. Suddenly I thought of what we are all going through, quarantine.   How many words describe quarantine? I turned toContinue reading “Ennui…”

Into the Unknown…

A couple of nights ago, hubby and I watched Frozen 2.   This morning I woke up with the refrain from“Into the Unknown” bouncing around my brain.  Wish I knew more of the words, but that is for another time. After having my morning coffee, I set out to do my grocery shopping, which I hadContinue reading “Into the Unknown…”

A Light in the Clearing…

I love walking in the woods, well, those woods I know, at least.  My favorite poem is by Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”  and I find myself quoting it several times. When going for a walk in the woods, you leave the bright daylight and follow a path.  This path meandersContinue reading “A Light in the Clearing…”

Sharon…

I first met Sharon when I was her brother’s secretary.  She, along with her Mom and her brother were visiting and came into the office to spend time with her brother. I confess the first time I saw the family walk into our offices I was very intimidated.  I didn’t know what to say orContinue reading “Sharon…”

Around the Table…

Do you remember the first day of school?   You go into a classroom and look around at all the strangers wondering who they are and if you would ever have anything in common with them. In the fall of last year, hubby was being seen at the VA hospital locally and it was recommended toContinue reading “Around the Table…”

Grandma Challenge…

For the past few weeks I have seen my Facebook friends posting photos of their grandchildren with this explanation: Every day I select an image from a day in the life of being a grandma and post it without a single explanation.   In turn you are to nominate a friend to do the same.   Continue reading “Grandma Challenge…”

Iconic? Not me…

Did you ever wonder how long it took to think of and write iconic opening lines to books? This thought came to me the other night while trying to get to sleep.   Actually, Herman Melville came to mind,  ”Call me Ishmael.” Wonderful!  Hooks you right in.  I love it! And Charles Dickens, one of myContinue reading “Iconic? Not me…”
