SLOMO ~ grin

My nephew saw this and forwarded it to numerous people, saying “Worth 15 minutes of your time.” His father, my brother, laughed and forwarded it to me, saying he had met and spoken with Slomo many times while walking on Pacific Beach in San Diego, where my brother lives. The first link he gave just […]

Windows XP Bites the Dust and Sundry Things

This has been a nerve wracking day, I’ll tell ya. I woke up with something to celebrate, my brain whirling with ideas, thoughts bouncing off the walls and corridors of my mind and landing smack in the middle of some family dilemmas. But that wasn’t the hard part of the day. Finished my journaling, my […]

Mags comes […]

Once upon a time, I gave myself the liberty to clear up some likely confusion caused by my posting, such as here. I’m sitting here, having had a pretty relaxed day, swaying in time to the tunes emanating from my Pandora selection of “Bobby Darin,” and experiencing flashing memories as each tune comes and goes. […]

Kindness ~ Part 2 – my take

I was taken by the thoughts on kindness by my friend, Jayce, so much so I reblogged her post. That would be Kindness, Part 1. One of her commenters, SarahPotterWrites, wrote that helping someone requires discernment – and she also wrote well of the homeless at a glance: A large percentage of homeless people are […]
