Circles

When I saw the reflection for today was “circles,” I wasn’t quite sure what to do with that. But as I left my apartment, suddenly the shape was everywhere. Doorbell, peephole, elevator buttons. Then in the parking garage, I saw wheels which then threw me into two songs I know called “Wheels,” both great songs….

Dear Janis,

I watched a movie about you today. Actually a documentary. You died before I was born, but when I discovered you – your voice, your energy, your insecurity – I felt as if I’d known you. This film only cemented that. I read your sister’s book, Love, Janis, in college and wrote an extensive paper about you…

Ghost Adventures, John Lennon, & other Saturday happenings

I just got done live-tweeting through the last episode of the show “Ghost Adventures” with Sandy & La. That was really fun! I love that show. For all the ways it could be faked to believing that what they experience is really happening, I just dig it. I’m a total believer in the paranormal. It…

the Shawnee saga is over

I’m happy to say that the saga with our previous house is finally over. We heard from the landlord late on Wednesday by email. He included a spreadsheet that listed all of the damage costs and the amount we would get back. It wasn’t as much as I’d hoped. Han was good with it. We…

Last day of April

Hooray! I did it! I posted every day, and every day I wrote a little something. Some were better than others. I’m very surprised by the reaction I got to yesterday’s poem. It was really nice what everyone said and those who liked it, too. It’s funny how something I just kind of pumped out…

well woman

Today I had my well woman exam and physical. The spot where they took blood is bruised and looks like a vampire or a snake bit me. Ouch. I’m sure this next statement is true of most women, but I don’t care for the lady parts exam. It’s so invasive. I went to work, and…

a full day

Before I tell you about yesterday’s SD adventure, I’ll tell you about today. I did a lot! It started with volunteering at the San Diego Food Bank. At work, we have volunteer days for the whole company. We have them twice a year. This first one of the year was the food bank. I spent…

SD Adventure Day #4

I took a day off to have my San Diego adventure day today. I want to write about it, but I’m tired and want to go to bed. I’ll tell it tomorrow. Until then, here’s this… today’s draft Windy Road while listening to “Life is a Carnival,” the road dips up and down

PBJS

Today has been super slow. Slept in. Lay back down for a while. Flan came by for some work time in the studio. I did some laundry. Later, Han & I ate sushi. The show last night was good. I plan to go again tonight. So here’s today’s draft. Peanut Butter & Jelly Scramble I…

Good Friday

Traffic was light today. Some people get this day off. Not where I work. But several people did take off early. I was finishing up some stuff and got out of there around 5:20pm. Not terrible. Tonight is night one of two for the Acoustic Duo’s CD release shows. I’ll be leaving shortly so I…

catching up – a top 10 list

Sorry for the time away. So much has happened, and my time has seemed so limited. Here are the top 10 highlights in no particular order. 1. San Diego Adventure Day #2 On February 27, I went to the San Diego Botanic Garden. I had been there once before, but it was for a show…

I see a red door…

I finished my first book of the year last night. It’s called Paint It Black by Janet Fitch. She also wrote White Oleander. The reason I chose to read PiB is because the actress, Amber Tamblyn, who is also a poet and close friends with some of the poets I know, recently announced that she…
