Fall Daze

The Daze of Fall is upon me. We have decorated for fall/Halloween, we have all gotten sick with our first cold and/or allergies, and it is that time in which (at work) there is no downtime. It is football season, but this year not basketball season (sadly). I have been thinking a lot about the…

August Postcards

            I was feeling a bit spontaneous last week and I signed up for a poetry postcard festival in August at Concrete Wolf.  The deal is you get a list of names (randomly generated) of those who have signed up to receive postcards.  In order to receive a postcard with…

Slave to Randomness

Am I a slave to the randomness of this internet age? I can’t help myself, but over at Tumblr I love the random photos that roll on my dashboard. Of course, I helped guide the random selection with interests (art, photography, travel, places, medieval history, etc) and it is a visual polyphony of soma. Soothing…

Um, I am 29…again…

I am not, but I was in this pic below. 🙂  Many things have changed.  My job, my hair (which has only been straight that one evening), my weight, etc.  But I would live this life AGAIN to get my two WONDERFUL boys and one FINE husband! Stay tuned.  Life is about to turn pretty…

Water Lilies

You know I think it might not be so random, but the pic I took yesterday at the Huntington closely resembles the one I posted recently (from the Getty Villa) regarding summer reading…sigh. Apparently, I am lily friendly. Anyway, I think I will pick up and do some more divination deck reviews in the next…

Poetry Book Giveaway

Continuing with the theme of Poetry and all things Random, I am participating in the Poetry Book Giveaway that poet Kelli Russel Agodon started.  It is an ingenious idea.  Basically, you comment at the bottom of this post if you would like to be in the RANDOM drawing (with the help of random.org) on May…

Egads!

I apologize for the lack of blog-o-pinions in these days! Work-home life has been exhausting and all-consuming. I do feel some creativity coming on and expect to be posting away in the next few weeks. So stay tuned! In the meantime, I literally found this fortune on my home desk today and am not sure…

Urban Dictionary

It is my opinion that the history in the better part of the 21st century will be written by the people (all people, and yes, that does include under-educated folks).  The thing I like about it is how dynamic our world has become — well, it has always been dynamic, but with the digital age…

There are no accidents

I like divination, but I don’t believe in divining the future. You can’t see what’s coming even with the greatest deck of Tarot cards. Perhaps there are those out there who can see glimpses of the future with open senses, but that is very special and is not usually consistent (of course, this is my…
