December 2015: Winners


We...
opened fitting gifts after cheese fondue,
barely avoided a highway crash--phew.
Learned 'Die Hard' is a good holiday flick,
achieved chimney fires sans matches or candlewick.

Ate fried okra, delicious tempeh & a hundred potatoes.
Tried our best to handle parents as friends not foes.
In 70 mm, saw 'The Hateful Eight'
& met the mountains in a frozen state.

Had lunch on a snowy lake,
bought edibles, a belt buckle, patches, pins, liquor & beer for all our sake--
then met a husky puppy who made our hearts ache.

Completed just one puzzle but attempted two more,
saw a seven-dog bobsled as never before!
Slept bad & then better, wiped to the core.

Sat in hot tubs for night sky & sunset sights,
awoke to -17 & a world in white.  
Even saw fireworks & strolled through blossoms of light.

The adventure for now is done,
but all in all, I think we won.

December 2015: Without


This is dedicated to a woman I admire for so many reasons.  The only way I can say it here is that she liked me from the get-go & trusted me in a way a woman & a mother trusts another woman.  She completely included me in the family she had made.  I'll never know what she thought entirely, or what it was like to be her, but I know she grew to love me & I loved her because she didn't hide.  She let people in.  And that, I think, is what will resonate.

November 2015: Straight To The Line


This perfect vertical line (15-20 feet high) caught my eye, feet, heart & brain in a parking lot that divides two restaurants.  Did human hands paint it?  If so, bravo.
