a reading

In late February, I was featured at a reading, along with some other poets. It was at a house. Think house concert, but with poetry. It was really cool. The host was an old poet friend of mine, Adrian. I honestly can’t remember how, where, or when I met him, but he was a Taco…

poetry friends

Today, after binge-watching the second half of the last season of “Parenthood” and prepping dinner for tonight, I drove up to Escondido to see an old friend, Rick Lupert, perform his poetry at an art gallery. My friend, Robt, hosts the reading. I was a little late, but I caught most of Rick’s feature, then…

pre-juice

There’s nothing like knowing you won’t be able to eat something to make you want to eat ALL OF THE THINGS. But our juice arrived today, and we start tomorrow. Should be interesting. I had therapy today, and it was kind of rough. I think I may have realized something today. I’m not ready to…

MIA

Sorry folks. April 10 had a terrible backache. April 11 was just tired. And tonight, April 12 was tax time! The back is better, still tired, but I’m getting a refund. I’ll try to catch up on poems this weekend. Until then, please discuss this stop sign cozzee that somebody made. It’s right on my…

High school town

spending time in my high school town isn’t too bad Mom and Dad are here

Girl, Friday

I’m up in La Mirada tonight for the weekend. Dad gets out of rehab tomorrow then it will be Easter. Even though I don’t practice any religion, I still consciously didn’t eat meat today. Why? The rituals go deep sometimes. Today’s thoughts for a poem; I hope to explore this a bit more. Girl, Friday…

Sick day

Took the day to stay home & recover a bit more. Took a long afternoon nap fringed with oxycodone. Had groceries delivered for the first time, probably not the last. Worked a little & watched NCAA men’s final. Now for today’s poem (or at least the start of one) A Step Up as Dad recovered…

Who is the fool?

It’s probably me, thinking I could eat corn nuts. I was looking for something salty a few days ago & thought those would be good. Wrong. On Friday, I went to Urgent Care. 12 hours later, I was able to go home, laden with prescriptions to take care of a second bout with diverticulitis. I’ve…

countdown over

I guess it wasn’t much of a countdown since I missed some days in there. Sorry about that. But I’m not one to leave my readers (all 5-10 of you!) hanging. So here is the rest of my 40 x 40 list. 9. Thrown a surprise party (and pulled it off) – It was for…

Missed one already

And almost missed another. Had a quiet night. We made lasagna, watched some TV, and let the rain fall.
