A second term, a renewed sense of hope and promise, the opportunity to correct past injustices, the possibility of equality and fairness . . .
Starting today under bright blue skies.

And a happy morning to all!!

JAN 2013 / Friday's Visual Treat

Image
On the silver screen, as she (or he) descended the imposing staircase, a crescendo of strings accompanied each step and all heads turned in admiration (and envy, or desire).  In today's reality--at least mine--just getting out of bed must be attempted slowly and with much concentration.  Yet I feel like the end is in sight, and recovery could be fully completed by the week's end.  Until then, rest and more rest will help in preparing me for my bright-eyed and robust debut, which I anticipate with a little impatience.

JAN 2013 / The 2nd Post Of The New Year

Image
Getting away for the holidays, once high on my list of priorities, has quietly shifted downwards behind a much needed visit to the dentist and auto repairs.  Perhaps I'll revisit the 'Places/Books/Foods/Movies To See Before I Die' category in my binder before August comes around again.  Paris, Rome and Barcelona are destinations only a flight (or two) away, yet somehow light years in actual execution.  Yet, this morning I hesitate to quarrel with myself, and would prefer calm after a restless night.   Maybe more tea and a buttered biscuit is called for . . .

JAN 2013 / The First Post Of The Year

Image
Somewhere in my head, out of the reach of flu-bugs and the incessant stream of thought bubbles carrying little hand-held signs clumsily and carelessly covered with phrases such as 'you're not well', 'lay down now' and 'more liquids and zinc is necessary,' comes the realization that the pristine, organized and spotless office of my dreams may be just that: an image glimpsed and temporarily affixed to a mental file-board which will doubtlessly collapse under the weight of even more acquisitions (holiday gifts and lucky thrift-store finds) and design glossies, as well as the reluctance to devote even a minute of my precious time to the rituals of dusting and polishing or vacuuming.  Easier--still, to use a dimmer when confronted with the true nature of myself.
