We lost some very talented folks last month.  Still reeling from the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman and while it wasn’t surprising that 94 year old Pete Seeger passed, it is a blow to know that he is no longer with us in body.  He was a bit like a cloud for me.  I didn’t [...]

"Yoo hoo! Is anybody?"

"Yoo hoo!  Is anybody?"

If you remember really EARLY TV you may remember Mrs. Goldberg.  In her signature opening she spoke from her window and wondering if anyone was home in one of the nearby apartments.  Is anybody became shorthand for “Is anybody there?” Image from Popmatters blog I feel a bit Mrs. Goldberg; it’s been a long time [...]

Falling into winter

Falling into winter

I was prepared to write with some frequency this fall.  There was to be a return to some reflection followed by writing.  The Parade & jamaica took place, the lead had been handed over to the city, and a new role, a new focus for me awaited for me. Then my computer died.   The [...]

Second week of Advent

Second week of Advent

So much going on.  So much has gone on… in the last month. In the world great folks and folks dear to us have died.  We have remembered them and taken time to reflect on their gifts – in a variety of ways. We’ve planted our fall plants.  We’re now covering our delicate plants at [...]

La Filipina, touching the heart

La Filipina, touching the heart

This being Veteran’s Day I was going to find something about the Mexicanos, Mexican Americans, Chicanos, or Latinos that had been in the Service.   But I find I can not stop but thinking on the people of the Philippines.  Like so many others I fear for those who are struggling to survive.  Please check [...]

Nellie Harriet Martinez, 1912-2001

Nellie Harriet Martinez, 1912-2001

My mom was in her early to mid-70s when this picture was taken.  Most folks who met her when she moved here thought of her as the grandma of either Kate or Matthew.  Invariably the first word they would use to describe her was sweet.   Sweetness and light born from a life that was [...]

Día de los muertos, 2013

Día de los muertos, 2013

This is the first time in years that we’ve not have an ofrenda for Dia de los muertos at our house.   We have all the elements, but I think I’m still recovering from the last 15 years.  Well, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. So the marigolds will have to just be [...]
