Sure, I believe as strongly in coincidence as anyone does. Who among us would doubt that the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines, and the Wall Street Journal, can… and did…suddenly have computer failures at the same time? Wow–that is SOME “computer glitch!” The FBI spokesman who was mentioning various possibilities that the FBI was investigating in its search to discover what had happened, and … Continue reading Considering the TV News–Coincidence, or Convenience?
A Tall Tale, told in jest, on a sort of a “dare.” The mail carrier arrives in her little truck about one p.m. We have a big mailbox, which will hold good-sized packages along with lots of regular mail, which sits out by the road. Except for watching on-coming traffic, which I avoid by standing behind and to the side of the box. Sometimes our … Continue reading A story involving a dog named Bob…
[Day 14, Writing101. Write about a word on page 29 of the nearest book.] The nearest book is on a shelf over my left shoulder. It is on a shelf with a book on Tai Chi, Laughing, and one on the Tarot. The one I touched first is called Ribbon Basics, by Mary Jo Hiney & Joy Anckner. It is a book on needlework. The … Continue reading Diagram Discussion …on Page 29
[Day 14 Writing101, Make a List] My son’s boss makes a list every morning of the things he has to do that day. I don’t, but I should. Oh, I make lists … all kinds of lists. They are even arranged in outline form, with headings, sub-headings, and points– sometimes even categories under the points, and so on. Lists are good, but my problem is that … Continue reading List of Lists
I LOVED flying. I even liked airports, whether the reason was actually going somewhere myself, a trip with a husband, or even just providing transportation for someone else. The atmosphere of the terminal was always exciting, with people walking fast or almost running down the concourse to make a flight. Dragging or pushing carry-on bags and packages, some carrying sleeping children. Y My very first … Continue reading Flying the friendly skies, back in the day
[DAY 5 — entry for Writing 101] A note I found on a path in a crowded park, half buried in mud, almost invisible due to age. It doesn’t say much of anything, but it sends chills down my spine. The meaning is ambiguous. Suspicious person that I am, I decide that the best way to make the note known to its intended recipient–is to publish … Continue reading Ominous or obnoxious?
Yep, I now have 54 posts on SOMETIMES. Not sure how many themes have been tried out on this blog. A lot. Note: the new theme, called SAGA, is new too (at least to me) and this version of SOMETIMES is RAW, folks… no colors, no background, no header ….no nothing. Except my good old posts ranging from astute to nonsensical–all 54 of them! … Continue reading Hit the 50+ Post mark! Yay! New Theme (again.)
While reading up on some of my favorite blogs a little while ago one of the bloggers mentioned Wyoming. https://lifeandmagicinwyoming.wordpress.com/ I looked at the gorgeous photos and immediately a line from a song, or rather a phrase from the song, which ended with: “…you know that Wyoming will be your new home…” popped into my head. With the melody running through my mind, searching my memory … Continue reading What was that song again?
Speaking of writing in the first person, I have struggled with this for years. It is really annoying to have to re-write when composing an email to a friend. The I-did-this, and I-did that, gets old and needs to be repaired grammatically. However…that might get pretty boring and contrived. Sorry to be the grammar police, but that is my nature. It has always pained me … Continue reading Spinning Yarns, part 2–Me, Myself, and I
