I am related by marriage to one of the big old Birmingham UK families, and at any family event, there are always aunts and uncles, cousins, and nephews, and nieces to catch up with. This afternoon, I attended a family funeral, and as is always the c...

Gone are the paper mâché shadows that hung by my window. Now dust motes in heavy coats of memories. So long time ago in my sleep. Where dreams are made, sewn with bows. And my old stuffed socks with buttons became my best friends. Now the circle has cl...

In her fingertips to build a nest in a tree to rest hung the moon a carol ring rung tinged with blue of speckled eggs

I can’t begin to tell you just how excited I get when I see winter start to disappear. Don’t get me wrong, I do like winter. Christmas is an especially good time for me, a big family dinner with my children and all the grandchildren. I love looking at...

A Lover Lost...

This is a story of loss and bereavement.

My dearest Darling, You’ve meant so much to me since we’ve been together. You’ve been a beacon of hope, allowing me to express myself in ways I didn’t know I needed. You may not even know it, but you encouraged me so much. You’ve helped me have the co...

What Gives You The Right

My rambling thoughts...

What gives you the right to assume I’m DTF? That’s Down To… Well, you can look it up. I assure you I’m not. Perhaps after some time, some long time, and a bonding friendship built of courting and a heavy dose of flirting. Yes, I said courting. People...

His eyes were curious, his ears inquisitive. I wondered if he was a fan of Taylor Swift or if the sound of the ukulele touched at some primal memory. Or, maybe like me, he just liked the sound of the small waterfall that cascaded down the smooth time-...

The Voice of My Hair

Life's Coping Mechanisms

The other day I stared into the mirror looking at my receding hairline and feeling I could have done with some better genes and some better hair maybe? But then I stopped and shut my eyes... One thought led to the other and took me down...

On my last birthday, my husband bought me a new car. I have to say it was lovely, dark blue shiny paintwork, it had everything. My old red car was a bit of a classic, but it did drive like a tractor. No power steering, no air conditioning. It was also qui...

Chalk Dust


Long thin strands emanating from a jar of angel's hair cotton. Draping over crystal roses and buttons. Of memories and Cheerios when I was a lad, and the stars were brighter. When dudes were from the East, and there was respect for one's elders. Coffee wa...

Getting A Little Heiny

Sometimes we’ve done a better job than we think we’re doing…
