Take note of smile gone, died hair gone, almost a self gone. But not yet, I'm still fighting. On the 15th of April I need to leave where I live now. If you read and listen you will understand why....
Dolly and Jean
It was time for another of my bagel fixes. When I want a bagel I have a choice of a few places to get one. Today it was Dunkin' Donut. Although it was around lunch time, the place wasn't too busy. In fact the only customers were two women in line ahead of me placing their orders. It was obvious they both were in the Christmas spirit. As I watched one put her arm around the other in...
What is real America
A brief flurry of exchanged emails with someone
did a hop, skip and a jump as they sometimes do. What started out with videos of planes trying
to land in strong crosswinds ended with a comment about "real America". I won't both you with the torturous path that

buses. Such is life on the internet with

is this more apparent than in the political arena where politicians not only
try to retain the support of those who have voted for them (i.e., think...
Listening at the beach
I hadn’t walked the beach all summer. That was due in part because of the summer heat and part because of a health issue I was dealing with. While the temperatures are still up there, my health improved to the point whre I knew it was time to return to the beach.
It was but a short trip across A1A And down the steps to the beach. With a sigh of relief I headed south, observing the...
Country Club to Shelter Living
Country club to Shelter living
Homeless Shelter, scary words for me.
I came to the Women’s Shelter a little over four weeks ago. I came not wanting, but had no other choice. After neck surgery, I put $10,000 on credit cards, paying doctors and hospital bills. I knew the $600 a month from Social Security would not allow me to pay bills, pay rent, and eat. I pictured myself in a card board box,...
You traipsed through life
to people, places
led only by your
taking joy where it
could be found,
oblivious to aching
left in your wake,
Live for now, you said,
tomorrow be damned,
the music’s the
it must be served;
the rest is drek!...
