I have been doing some creative, or possibly not so creative writing involving memories and senses. Your senses trigger so many things but one of the most important things they tend to trigger is memories. I am going to, over the course of several days, post different memories triggered by one of our five senses.… Continue reading Your Senses – Smell
My son’s high school drama club opened with a Thursday matinee of “The Pajama Game.” I will apologize in advance as I used my point and shoot for these and it is old. On top of that, I was in row M.
Last night I pulled parental rank. I wanted to watch and listen and take notes on the State of the Union.

I can picture the snow on the ground, not freshly fallen but piles of it that I had shoveled from storms… Continue reading Twenty-three Years Ago
