Making the minimum

My body and my mind are tired. One of my health problems is acting up, AND I have a dissatisfied mind. I am grumbly and a bit worried about small and large potatoes. I want to write for longer, to piece together a bit of something that speaks to something, but tonight, that ain’t going […]

Slipping soft and quiet through a soft, quiet, wet day

I am not sure how much I got done today. The day slipped, in the most delightful way, through my fingers. I read the news, scanned some FB, applied for a librarian position, did a semi-significant amount of school work, had a two hour catch up conversation with a friend, read a little, slowly drank […]

Tired but satisfied on a Tuesday night

Tonight, my dear faithful and faithless followers, will be one of the times when I write only a few words. I have drafted Daily Doses that need to be reworked and then posted, things about important social and/or political issues, but tonight but I am much too tired. I am tired but satisfied. Now that […]

Meanderer’s Meditation: A resolution

Ages ago, you may remember, I declared that on Mondays I would write about movement powered by the human body, mainly my body’s movement, mainly walking and biking. Today, after a vigorous set of strength training, I walked and jogged 2 miles on the treadmill. Later, I biked to an appointment and back home (perhaps […]

Filling the Thank Full First Sunday January 2015

Yes, my faithful and faithless followers, it is time to once again fill the thank full. I fill the thank full so I can keep on keeping on. I fill the thank full so that I thrive, not just survive. Tonight, I am thankful for the tired eyed feeling that comes after a day of […]

Crisp green apples, berry vinaigrette and smoked Gouda fondue

Tonight, I do not have much to say to my faithful and faithless followers. But I promised myself and you that I would publish a post each and every day of this year, even if it was just twenty words, so I’m tipping my fingers across the keyboard to fulfill that promise. Tonight, the spouse […]

Whale Belly Day

Today was a Jonah Day. Lots of things when wrong, turned sour or just plain broke. When the spouse and I loaded in the car, the battery had run down. This was quickly fixed, because my dad had not yet left to walk his dogs and had a lovely, portable battery charger. When I got […]

Christmas Eve- a few images and vignettes

I have a small shiny burn spot on my right index finger. I burnt it taking banana nut muffins out of the oven. The muffins are based on a recipe by a woman named Lynn. She was a regular customer at the Original Book Gallery, the bookstore I worked at in my late teens, very […]

Fill the Thank Full: Fourth Sunday in Advent 2013

It has been a slow moving, grumbly weekend that somehow disappeared all too quickly. Of late, I have been writing the Good (and Not So Good) Words late- between 10:30 and 11:30 p.m. sometimes in the last fifteen minutes of a day. Tonight, I will take time to give thanks early because I am in […]
