My Full Moon in September

My Full Moon in September ~ after Clair de lune by Claude Debussy by Maja Trochimczyk   An orchestra of crickets slices through the night of a full moon and shadows piercing my white garden. I look at the contours of clouds outlined in indigo sky, black pine branches stretching upwards as the clouds flow […]

While the Sun Is Low and Golden

While the Sun Is Low and Golden

While the Sun Is Low and Golden by Tim Callahan   While the sun is yet low and golden in the western sky let us call to mind those we have lost to the ever onrushing pall of darkness. We hope they have gone into mystery, not oblivion. Some tell us they’ve risen to glory […]

Scribblings 41: Welcome to the Langham!

Scribblings 41: Welcome to the Langham!

Once upon a time, troublesome pre-teens were sent off to the convent. In the summer of 1967, my parents sent me off to my grandparents.

Scribblings: Week 39 – Welcome to Boot Camp

Considering that I have been likened to an Obsessive on Uppers, my rather intense relationship with my Fitbit surprises no one. Yet for all ‘the Fitbitch’ has cracked her whip at me this past week, I have managed only about 20 to 50 steps a day, depending on bathroom runs. A bus outside my hotel […]

In the Days of Early Polyester

In the Days of Early Polyester

  “in the days of early polyester” by Celeste Gainey   you don’t know yet you are flammable; jars of Miracle Whip, tubs of Polly-O in the fridge.
