Tuesday evening photo. Looking at this, I keep thinking of one of my favorite sociologists, Tony Campolo and his conversation, “Friday’s here, but Sunday’s coming.” I would like to believe there is merit to this. I think it will be up to us to decide and act in ways that build community – many small … More Tuesday evening photo. It’s Thursday.

Izzy and I moseyed by the bungalow where the kids grew up, today. It’s for sale and empty so I looked in the backyard and found this nostalgic nugget. Cue the heartsquench of missing them and their families. One thing I noticed that gives me real pride-gratitude: All of the trees and bushes I planted … More Long-term gains
This year has been like going through a terror tunnel in the dark – couched in four years of a wealthy white pussy-grabbing cruel gaslighting buffoon being protected and promoted to president while unabashedly stirring hatred and violence like in “the good old days,” which is a storyline many of us have long been all … More Haunted house or magic tunnel?
I – like many of us – have just witnessed the first debate among two men who want to be named president of the United States in five weeks and a moderator who deserves a quiet walk in the park and a beer. Or a taser. Nobody won. No one American won from that display. … More Oh hell: Thoughts about a country
Written with permission. Two weeks ago I bought a house. A home. A cottage where I could cartwheel from one end to the other in three “wheels” … if there was room. It was a worth-it grueling experience of months of the most bizarre errors by the first lender and insurance company made better by … More 2020’s reframing of what matters
This weekend my COVID social bubble peeps and I sat six feet apart, yet still close enough to feel cozy. We talked, dreamed a bit, laughed, ate and watched the kids experience freedom + incendiary devices. The conversation was so delicious that we forgot about eating until I saw Chuck, the pup, standing at the … More Learning to listen.
To pack or not to pack? Izzy and I are on the stoop listening to the rain. This unknown-how-long game delay on the house closing (lender lag) and then learning there is no buy-out clause on a lease I signed in December (or lose the apt.) that won’t start until July 28, 2020, has me … More On the stoop
I am working – a privileged position. Bathed, clothed and healthy. Trying to buy a tiny home. All very privileged positions. My heart is breaking. My daughter and son grew up to launch well without the added drag of race or poverty to slow their growth. Yes, we struggled financially as we became three instead … More What I do and don’t know
