Writing, traveling, the theatre

One can easily see that writing has consumed a goodly portion of my time recently. Here on our site I have close to 400 pieces.

The theatre has also given me a great deal of pleasure. I've made efforts to become a triple threat on stage. My last lessons were in ballet last fall. During the past five years I've appeared in seventeen plays and productions.

Topic: What Are You Celebrating Now?
Posted: 20 Apr 2018 08:14

Happy April 20th.

4/20 is, in short, a holiday celebrating marijuana.

Why April 20? There are a few possible explanations for why marijuana enthusiasts’ day of celebration landed on this day, but the real origin remains a bit of a mystery.

Steven Hager, a former editor of the marijuana-focused news outlet High Times, told the New York Times that the holiday came out of a ritual started by a group of high school students in the 1970s. As Hager explained, a group of Californian teenagers ritualistically smoked marijuana every day at 4:20 pm. The ritual spread, and soon 420 became code for smoking marijuana. Eventually 420 was converted into 4/20 for calendar purposes, and the day of celebration was born. (A group of Californians published documents giving this theory legitimacy, but it’s unclear if their claims are valid.)

When The Last Leaf Falls

When the last leaf falls will they be there to watch it. How often have they told you they love you. Perhaps not as often as you needed. Even once is wonderful. Even once is not never. When it is taken away does the autumn of your soul descend upon you? Words, words, words. What do they mean? What about trust. They said trust. Did they trust? They said love. Did they love? The autumn...

Darling, Kiss Me

This poem may be sung using the music of " La Complainte du Partisan " ("The Partisan"), a song about the French Resistance in World War II. The song was written in 1943 in London by Emmanuel d'Astier de la Vigerie (lyrics) and Anna Marly (music). It has been covered by numerous people, including the version by Leonard Cohen. My poem uses the music to create the flow of the words. ***** ...

Dinner Time

"Shut up and eat it." We all laughed. It was the last family gathering, And it was still funny. After all these years. Still funny. It could easily be bitter.  But no. No. We all understood the reasons behind the words. As do our kids today.  They have heard the same words growing up and still understand. More and more each day. To be wondering where the money will come from. To feed...

The World Has Bigger Problems

Tule reeds covered marshy backwaters. They searched for science project specimens. The Colorado River was chilly, but spring sun warmed these waters. They waded waist deep in jeans. Denim dries quickly. Tom's fair skin was pale after the desert winter spell. Booker's deep brown skin glistened where droplets had fallen. Soon they donned their white t-shirts, sneakers, and got to Tom's house....

Strong heart is beating in a harmony, Each movement set angelically with pride.   So subtle that it matches musically, To center stage exquisite form does glide On pointe, on tiptoe, swaying with the tune The wind caresses, gently singing free. So calm her soul, like summer days in June But every step is like a storm tossed sea Behind sweet lips and eyes, typhoons may hide, With calmness...
