i'm baaaaaaaack (from ack)

Hey there, beautiful you. I missed you. I’m not just saying that. It was odd to be away. I’ve grown accustomed to our little world here. Our visits are important to me. It’s good to be home. Incidentally, I think I may have a somewhat unnatural attachment to my own pillow.  But if you’d like, we … Continue reading

no apologies

  “I was walking by a dry cleaner at 3am and there was a sign that said, “Sorry, we’re closed.” You don’t have to be sorry. It’s 3am and you’re a dry cleaner. It would be ridiculous for me to expect you to be open. I’m not gonna come by at 10 and say, “Hey, I was … Continue reading

to be sure of you

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind, “Pooh!,” he whispered. “Yes, Piglet?” “Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw. “I just wanted to be sure of you.”  Katie and I were sitting on the floor in our office a couple of days ago. I don’t remember how it was that we came to be sitting on the … Continue reading


“It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived forwards.

God makes a house call

I can’t explain a blessed thing Not a fallen star nor a feathered wing How a man in chains has the strength to sing Just one thing is clear to me There’s always more than what appears to be When the light’s just right I swear I see Man, it’s poetry Sometimes the big old … Continue reading

back to school

  “When u come to the end of all the light you know, and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen; either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”  ~ Edward Teller  ******  “But … Continue reading

words matter -or- they're both fish

    So sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake. When my husband and I were first dating, he took note of a book on my bookshelf called Rubyfruit Jungle, by Rita Mae Brown. A favorite from my college days, it’s a seethingly funny autobiographical account of the author’s coming of age (and coming … Continue reading
