Norine's New Life @80 - "You Still Drive?"
Routinely, my physician asks, "How did you get here today?" When I tell him I drove to his office on my own, he asks with astonishment, "You still drive?"Perhaps, as he reviews my history before stepping into the examining room, he notes my age and assumes that I am no longer capable behind the wheel. He has no way of knowing that in my 81 years I have received only two moving violation tickets.I...

Musings-lite Collection No. 10
Here’s another mixed bag of what I call
musings-lite. None are worthy of a full
musing. You even might think of this as coming
from a junk drawer in my brain where I store strange things that go through my
Scientists have determined that our universe is
made up of 5% normal matter (stuff we can see and measure), 24% dark matter

Concerning Sea Turtles
I have never met a sea turtle that I didn’t like – I did, however, meet one once who didn’t particularly like me; in fact, I think she thought that I was trying to kill her babies, but I wasn’t. Here’s what happened: sea turtles are a protected species in Florida, and guided tours are given after dark so people like me can watch the egg-laying process. My family and I signed up for one...

Martha Stewart and Me
Can you believe I beat 71-year-old Martha Stewart at signing up on Match.com? I did it four years ago when I was 77, and she just did it now.In her profile Martha writes, "You may recognize me from my picture. Yes, it's really me." But no one would recognize me from the photograph I posted.Martha describes herself as athletic and toned. Out of honesty, I skipped those descriptors. Martha's...
Summer: When the Sun Stands Still
When the earth tilts on its axis, like a sunflower does,
towards the sun, it is summer. Summer occurs at oppositional times in the
northern and southern hemisphere. The month of June (anywhere
from June 20- June 24) marks the beginning of the summer solstice in the
northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere the solstice happens in
January. Summer, like all of the other
seasons of the...
Mothering on Mother's Day
I just returned from a trip to Baltimore visiting my daughter over Mother’s Day weekend. I was in a mothering mode much of the trip. Tracy treated me to brunch on Sunday at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Following mimosas and crabby quiche we wandered through rooms filled with Rothkos and Renoirs. While the artistic retrospective was wonderful, I was at least as struck by the personal...
I love family, I really do. I love them so much that sometimes I go visit them, whether I’m invited or not. I also love family secrets; they really keep family members stirred up – especially when everybody is telling everybody else what they’re not supposed to tell, and when family members are wondering what’s a secret and what’s not and when family members don’t care what’s a...
