God’s Perfect Timing

  • May 2012 Eclipse
    • Paper covers rock covers scissors… It is a childhood game On Sunday, God played it, too And allowed me to take this photo

      Coastal fog covered moon covered sun The eclipse scene in southern California Look with your eye, blink, exclaim, And run to get your camera

      Ocean fog reprieve For glorious opportunity

      A picture and words… all good

              My life as a Miracle, May 2012

It’s the line from a classic movie which, because Larry and I were dating, I went to see, despite the fact that I hate violence – verbal or physical – and that movie had plenty of both.… ...

Country Manor

Country Manor: it’s where I aspired to live. I clung to a dream with a dead wrong boyfriend during the early ’70s. It was the name of a store where my Hadleyware collection began, gifts from his mother who craved my entrance to the family.… ...

What’s in a name?



noun: An eternal optimist.
After Wilkins Micawber, an incurable optimist in the novel David Copperfield (1850) by Charles Dickens. His schemes for making money never materialize, but he’s always hopeful that “something will turn up”.
Moyzis is the name of a UC Irvine biological chemistry professor who recently published his research that found a dopamine gene variant linked to human longevity… Because the FDA is mere steps away from the campus, it can’t be long before this happiness gene is plopped inside a capsule to fuel our years to 100.

Twelfth Morn

I hated to do it, but it needed to be done.

I tossed out the final Christmas cookies, dipped pretzels, chex mix, and fudge. We had already eaten nearly all of the treats – and you can tell, because the pounds are all around me.… ...
