Poem: “That Tsunami”

by

That Tsunami The wall of seas came rolling in Deliberate, unstoppable A massive wave of gray This is how the dead come forth From all their graves On Judgment Day  The weight of them, the mass of them Rolling on and on And who can hide The vanity of living things Illusion and the pettiness […]

I Married A Sock Addict

by

My mother says she’s color blind from a lifetime of matching socks.  As I celebrate my 24th year of doing Scott Rinehart’s laundry, I now know why. According to my husband’s sock drawer, there are 17 shades of navy blue.  Four of those shades belong on over the calf socks while the other thirteen are […]

When My Baby Girl Left For College…

My View From Down Here, Part II

by

I hope you’ve read Part I…if not please do before reading Part II. I mean, lest you think I start off all conversations telling you about my toned calves…. 😉 I don’t tire of hearing compliments on my toned legs.

My View From Down Here: Part I

by

I remember clearly the day I discovered I had the horrendous, incurable, life scarring disfigurement known as “being short”.  The first day of first grade started smoothly—there I stood on the sidewalk outside my classroom for the requisite “First Day of School Photo Shoot”. I wore a smashing long, kelly green dress emblazoned with neon […]
