VOTE! It’s Safe and Easy

October 7, 2020

I’m at my dining room table staring my mail in ballot. I like the fact that I can vote with hair conditioner on, under an electric heating cap, looking like an alien in a bad 1950s Sci-fi movie. I’d share the image, but am too vain to give you that kind of belly laugh right now. I usually vote in person because my parents did, and took great…

2020 – It’s all About Waiting

September 16, 2020

I think I might finally be getting the hang of this year – it’s all about waiting. We waited to see what Covid would bring. Then we waited to see if our jobs would come back. Then we waited to see if the protests would really bring about change. We continued waiting to see what Covid would bring after Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day.…

A Cure for the Covid Grumps

August 29, 2020

I woke up in a very crabby mood today, in spite of a perfect Los Angeles day with deep blue skies and an actual cool breeze. Maybe it was weeks of 100 degree temperatures, plus two political conventions back to back. Or maybe it’s living alone during five months of furlough with no discernible end in sight. Either way, my grumpiness wasn’t lifting. My usual ventees weren’t available…

That Hopey Changey Thing is Our Best Ally

July 24, 2020

I was relishing the sunshine this morning as I walked, listening to my favorite hip-swaying, tunes,(after listening to the depressing news) when it, again, hit me — hope is our best ally right now. It’s symbol is the sturdy anchor that holds ships in place during rough weather. And I think Covid 19 definitely qualifies as a storm. Hope keeps us moving forward every day. I hate to…

The Only Advantage of Covid 19 – Date Hazelnut Cinnamon Biscotti

July 17, 2020

On Wednesday I spent an hour and a half picking up trash on the streets I frequent on my morning walks. It’s supposed to be my time for reflection and peaceful meditation, but even with the meditation music plinking away in the background, I found myself cussing under my mask at all the a**holes who couldn’t be bothered to pick up their damned trash. (One advantage of wearing…

Happy Birthday Ma!

July 4, 2020

I couldn’t let the Fourth of July go by without wishing my mom a Happy Birthday. I’ve been going through all the letters she and my dad sent me over the years and have been really humbled by the love and support they always offered their stinking daughter who moved away. The only good thing about living far away is that I have all these mementos to look…

Groundhog Day

May 29, 2020

One good thing about the Stay at Home order is, I now know I’m not ready to retire…at least not while living in an apartment. If I owned the place, I’d be knocking myself out fixing things. Instead, I keep reminding myself to work on my own projects, so I can leave here one day and buy a home of my own. I did buy myself a bistro…
