If I have to wear a mask, let it be one I like.  I haven't found that yet.  This mask parade that we have every day is hard for all of us.  When I smile at someone, it can't be seen.  Or, maybe it can, when they see a twinkle in my eye.  I hope so.

History is a funny thing. 

This is a picture of my grandma right after she was married.  The year?  1909.  This brings perspective for today.  It was right before the Spanish flu pandemic that killed millions.  She's smiling in the picture, but she was in for "a ride."...

Love, sorrow, comfort, sadness, presence and bonding.  That is what I experienced in the last days with my mom.   My sister gave me these words when she saw the picture, which I did today on mother's day.  I did not want the picture to show sorrow too much.  The sorrow...

"What is this screaming about?"

I asked a similar question of all the stude...

"What's this for?" asks the kindly tree.   "Somebody forced this on my branches, and the wind won't even blow it away."

The tree continues his discourse. 

"Is this one of those things I see human beings wearing to cover up their smiles?  I have no need for this.  I...

Six weeks in isolation has done its work.  The work, that happens in the inner self, is running its course.  Emotions have been running with it. This morning, I was up very early, fussing and puttering,  and sputtering about why the clock said 5:00 AM.  Two hours later...
