On a Serious Note

  I’ve been depressed for a while. What month is it? Midway through March? Yes, a while. I couldn’t figure out why. I slipped into a funk sometime after the holidays. I couldn’t put my finger on what’s been at the root of bumming me out so much. […]

It’s Snowing, in Hawaii

Sometimes, when I’m getting too serious, or I’m getting too bogged down over serious issues, I’ll just let myself run with it until something makes me laugh. This morning’s news cycle provided a treasure trove of ridiculousness. What sent me over the top was this news story about […]

Wondering…

I have a few legitimate, common sense, questions about the proposed “Green New Deal” being fronted by some politicians. As I understand it, the “Green New Deal” would call for the elimination of the use of all fossil fuels within ten years. That’s your car. My husband drives […]

Ahead of the Curve

Here’s an article/interview in GQ about why we’ll look at our smart phones like cigarettes and tech backlash is about to go mainstream. Link. Just a few days ago, I made that comparison myself, saying that twitter had become my new cigarette. It’s been said that I’m “old […]

The People in The Towns…

Because, throughout the world, the needs, and wants, of the people in the towns and the suburbs, are not the same as those of the people in the cities…. “One illustration of this cultural divide is that most modern, progressive social movements and protests are quickly endorsed by […]

Enjoy Every Good Thing

Okay, two weeks into the new year, I have deleted my twitter account and, I won’t be back on there. I was trying to think of it as a “necessary evil,” but the truth is, it isn’t necessary. It is the Tower of Babel. The more I thought […]

Here’s the Kicker…

It takes thirty days to delete a twitter account. Once an account is deleted, the twitter handle then becomes available for whomever. So, guess what. I still have a twitter. But, now I know why so many people just leave their accounts there, and possibly on other sites? […]

This Strange New World

I’m considering so many things, thinking, about this strange, new, world, we’ve found ourselves in as we are now in the future. This is an interesting interview, this quote, talking about the 24/7 internet, etc. “…The societal question is more complex, although I think itโ€™s users themselves and […]

The Last Time We Visited Aldera Dune

      The Last Time We Visited Aldera Dune by Teri Skultety, copyright 2018, all rights reserved The last time we visited Aldera Dune, it was to watch the world die. The moons of Rionnata glowed with radiation in the distance. One purple, one iridescent green, one […]

The Christmas Tree Lot

  Last December, while out running errands, I took a picture of a local Christmas Tree lot. Every year for I don’t know how many years, just before Thanksgiving, the temporary fencing would go up around this empty, corner, lot. A real old-fashioned kind of affair with twinkle […]

Clean Water

So, I wouldn’t call myself an “environmentalist” unless home decorating counts. I think we’ve got some serious issues with regard to refuse, litter, polluting our waterways and thus, our water. I’m one of those people who believes that the planet is actually “greening” and greener, that is, that […]
