Needs

Needs

Tired from my birthday! I ate a lot. Wore me out. These days, I don’t need a party. All I need is my family of John, Boz and me, cozy in our living room. And computers: one for John and one for me. A bone for Boz. (Addicts, all.) And books. And crossword puzzles. And [...]

Self Portrait

Self Portrait

It’s my birthday, so a little self-reflection is in order. This isn’t a “big one,” though they do tend to get bigger as they go. But it’s as good a time as any to check in with myself and see how I’m doing: Never as well as I mean to.Always better than I could be [...]

Advanced technologies are researched. Wallets are opened and emptied. Tired humans are [...]

See You There

See You There

Spring. Stuff was blooming all over the neighborhood yesterday. Those orange things that like the shade. And the flower bushes that come in pink and white. Little starry flowers that grow right up in peoples’ lawns. Yellow bloomlets and bright, bright purple ones that are sort of fuzzy. You will note I use the technical [...]
