This is my favorite holiday. Or perhaps tomorrow is.
Today is the Feast of All Saints - every soul in heaven is celebrated. We must know some of them.
Tomorrow is the Feast of All Souls. It ...
I sit here and watch the world crumble.
My corner’s not. that bad. It’s semi-good. But the rest of the world is not much fun to look at.
I’m reading a Tracy Kidder book. Strength in What R...
Tell me what you want to tell me
Tell me what I need to know.
Make me happy
Make me glisten like a morning rose
Dew dropped, fragrant, the color of tomorrow.
We have had a life
The dog and the woman
Gracie and Mommy
It’s lasted from when the factory closed
Until almost no one remembers anymore.
Walks and runs, naps and pants
Time that lasted forever
… tired of me.
There seems to be no end to the past I want to dredge up or the present I want to expand upon.
But here’s Bill Moyers and Sherman Alexie.
Oh and last night I watched a movie call...

… from the tractor.
… tractor and baler.
… wagon with bales - cow candy.
There were seven or eight big round bales too.
The pictures aren’t quite the way I’d take t...

She was Catholic.
She was smart.
She prized neatness.

This is Gracie. I have hands.
I can put words in the keyboard.
I can tell you what’s inside a dog.
Mommy lies on the floor and licks the sore on her arm
Mommy finally know who I am, she knows

Today was a pretty big day. School isn’t really too bad after all.
During English class we were to write a piece of creative writing. I wrote on ‘1961 The U...
Does anyone remember Sassy Brujur - that might have been her name, it might not have been. She was a great Open Diary-er, an Englishwoman living in Spain. She had a guest house and she was alw...
If Gracie could be human one night
And I could lie on the floor waiting
If Gracie had hands that could spread
The peanut butter and offer it to me
I’d ask for another and another again
And she wo...
These are at away pasture. Jim says they come home Monday. I will have to help. Wish me luck. Wish Jim luck. Wish the cows luck.
Thanks for all that luck wishing.

I got out of bed to fire up the computer, to look for youtubes. It’s cold enough for socks, an extra sweatshirt and a stocking cap. I left Annie’ Proulx’s Wyoming stories in my bed. They mak...
..... posted this on Twitter this morning.
The sun is coming up.
I think I have to go to town today.
The mail is back. I sent Katie and someone else letters.
I feel kind of neutral about the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
I’d really like a walk and nobody or nothing is stopping me. Fir...
I miss my diet Pepsi. In the last selkie movie “Ondine”, the main character was trying not to drink and there wasn’t an Alcoholics Anonymous in his town, so he would go the priest in the con...
… do me a favor, please.
Tell me why you don’t like Updike. Emphasis on why/what you don’t like.
Thank you all for your good (and otherwise) advice. I compiled it for my writer’s group and it was popular. The ‘don’t gain more than 5 lbs after marriage’ got a laugh.
I have leftover...
Beautiful perfect weather.
More time with Gracie.
Next week’s writing topic is best/worst advice you’re gotten from a parent or other adult.
After some thought, all I’ve got is:
