The Best Movies of 2021

This list is highly subjective, of course. Not only didn’t I see every movie released in 2021, but “Bests” are always a matter of personal taste (superior though my taste may be ;>). However, because I’m a filmmaker and a big-time film buff, my blogger friends seem to appreciate the suggestions. So here, IMHBCO (In … Continue reading The Best Movies of 2021

Staycation 2022

A few days ago I typed “The End” on my fourth novel, Reunion at the Happy Valley Motor Inn and Resort, the third in the Happy Valley trilogy. If that sounds confusing, it’s because one of my books, The Cowboy and the Executive, is for now, a stand-alone romance. “Reunion” is currently in the hands … Continue reading Staycation 2022

You Wanna Know What Addiction Is (audio) (day 89)

They will tell you that addiction is learning to love the wrong thing. I think it’s learning to hate yourself and call it affection. We close the door and tell someone our darkest secrets or we don’t but either way, we fall asleep with our heads on our own pillows, walk the city streets with … Continue reading You Wanna Know What Addiction Is (audio) (day 89)

Forever Might Be Short

Forever might be short short like my poems which are forever preserved between the pages of my notebook. Forever might be short short like the spring rain that drenches the flowers and creates a scent which is remembered forever. Forever might be short short like the grass which grows and grows until forever. Forever might … Continue reading Forever Might Be Short

Listening to the silence

What if we were to spend an entire day listening Rather than filling the silence with our own thoughts and words Adding to the cacophony of sound that never stops What if we were to extend our concentration deeply sideways through the portals of our ears and simply Listen Have you ever been waiting for … Continue reading Listening to the silence

Yesterday we visited the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle even though rain was in the forecast. And rain it did, most of the time we were there. Even so, I carried my camera and managed to sneak some pictures of the animals, which I later changed to black and white for this week’s Sunday Stills … Continue reading A Rainy Day at the Zoo – In Black and White

Friday Favorites: The Consolation of Nature

For me, as is the case with many people, nature is a great consolation when there are troubles big and small. Even in March in Maine, there are signs of spring, reasons to be glad and feel a little comforted. At breakfast one morning this week, I looked out the window and spotted this chipmunk … Continue reading Friday Favorites: The Consolation of Nature

Exploring the senses: acute sense of smell

I’ve always had a strong sense of smell, possibly inherited from my maternal grandmother. She, too, expressed her keen sense of smell whenever she became alert to some odour, such as the gas being left on in the kitchen, or a specific type of cooking aroma wafting through the air into her vicinity. I type … Continue reading Exploring the senses: acute sense of smell
