time: like a clock of the heart

Actually, it’s nowhere near that poetic or new romantic. To be honest, I’m ready to see the past year put in the ground. I’m just shy of a week away from my birthday and one gets into a state of reflection…

goodbye: Grandma Mattie Lee

the most wonderful time of the year

Forget the holiday song, it’s right now, as August makes its slow slide into the cool, crisp and brisk days of Autumn/Fall. I love finally being able to shut off the air conditioner, and actually wanting to leave the house...

The weekend… so close!

TGI–freakin–F as they say. I wonder if our brains have evolved to the point where even a short week no longer feels like a short week. Either that or I’ve just been on the move too much between tidying up,...
