Full To The Brim, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:15am


Christmas has been held and had, full to the brim of my favorite humans. I hope, if you celebrate, yours was good. And that if Christmas is not your holiday, you enjoyed the empty streets left as many of us burrowed into houses full of wrapping paper. My task for the day is getting my […]

Leave The Leaves Alone, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:46am


I hope all of you who celebrate had a good Thanksgiving. It was just me and my husband this year. So we walked to a local restaurant, arm in arm, dressed up. I even wore boots. Big fancy. We were seated in the backroom, where harvest gold tablecloths reminded me of Thanksgiving with my grandmother […]

Searching For The Rewards Of Patience, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:15am


I know that when reading a blog I generally don’t want to hear about its inner workings. How often people write, their thought process about topics, oof, some part of me needs to suspend disbelief and expect magic.  With that acknowledgement, I’m going to go right ahead and turn on the klieg lights. Imagine a […]

Looking Heat Square In The Face, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:56am


As you may have heard San Francisco broke heat records yesterday, with temperatures of 106℉. Down here on the Peninsula we went even higher, to 108, but I was still happy to be in my suburban house. At least here we can open the front door (the back door the bedroom doors the windows) and […]

When Eyelids Behave Badly, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:38am


I had the weirdest illness this week. At least I think it was an illness but I’m not quite sure. One night I was lying on the sofa watching television on my laptop and something flew into my eye. Or so it felt. Not sure what it was, a bug, a feather, or whether indeed […]

Humanity, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:58am


This is one of those moments when I don’t think I have an apolitical Saturday post in me. I could tell you that a Monarch finally visited my milkweed patch. I was thrilled, yes, but given the other events of this week in America I can’t do butterflies this morning. Let me leave you with […]

Summer Break


In honor of summer, that blue-eyed 40-year old dancing under a pergola who throws back her head to feel her hair on her shoulders, I’m taking a few weeks off. See you in August, I wish you all possible fun under the sun.

Other People’s Good Words, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:29am


Right now I like what other people are writing so much that I think I’ll stay quiet and post their links. From Mardel, about clearing out her closet, optimizing, finding the sweet spot for where she lives now. From Brenda, an over-60 blogger new to me, becoming more visible over-65. (I think about writing a […]

American Writing, British Television, Travels, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:51am


It’s been a quiet week. I published a new post on Medium, here, in full awareness of my limitations. I first wrote the piece very simply, as a simple but preposterous proposal. For better or worse I couldn’t leave it that way. My internal voice of reason spoke too loudly. Retirement seems to be about having the time to […]

Bandanas Of The Heart And Hearth


As the USA moves into spring we applaud the sun and light (even as we shiver in the evening or wake up to a blanket of March snow.) Is sky blue and cozy the perfect spring pairing? I recently bought this small “lace” cashmere scarf.   Perfect for spring days when the wind is colder […]
