Waiting Around the Corner

Last summer I pulled into a parking place at my local Home Depot, gathered my purse and prepared to get out of my car. At that precise moment someone whipped into the parking place next to me, nicking my opening car door.

Reality, Books, and Wine


The other day I went to pick up some books at the library, and when I was ready to check out I mentioned to the librarian that I was pretty sure I owed her 60 cents.

Letting My Hair Down

Hair is beginning to show up in my life. I’m now vacuuming it off the rug. I’m wiping up wisps coiled on the bathroom counter. During a slow moment in my writing group I’ll look down to find a half-circle on my sleeve.

She's Leaving Home

Dinosaurs and Soup Bones

We’ve put another turkey under our belts, caught up on family news, and again have a renewed interest in leafy greens and a non-carb diet.
