Ancient Orchids – etc.

July 10, 2018
(photo from Minnesota State Fair several years ago)   Just a test.  My entries don't seem to be showing up on the front page. Thought I'd try one more time.   Later - Just a thought - maybe our OWN entries don't show up on the front page.  Do you see your own entries there? …

        Today is July 7, 2018.  Saturday.  Later afternoon. On the deck, warm/cool/slight breeze. A few minutes before the gnats come.   I see: sunlight on the stout textured trunk of the younger walnut breeze bringing all sorts of leaves to life my prized begonia in perfect red/pink b...

    June 18, 2018
    Odd odd question.  What qualities are important in a close friend?  It so depends.  There are a lot of ways of being and of having friends.   I come across old friends, close friends here.  I think of the time that's gone and won't come back.  I think of who matters and who doesn't.  I…

  • The baas at Catons
    June 13, 2018
    My first memory might be the baas at Catons.  Catons was the farm my parents lived on the first five years of their marriage.  I was oldest, born a little after a year into their marriage.  The baas were the sheep that were on the other side of the fence from our houseyard.  I assume…

    June 6, 2018
    I just had my best trash phone call ever.  I have to share it with somebody and you're the lucky person.   Phone rang about 9:20 on Wednesday morning.  Since I gave Tammy Baldwin ten bucks the day before I felt pretty certain I could say no to political solicitations so I didn't even look&he...

  • A real entry, except it’s accidental
    May 17, 2018
    Hi there. This is an attempt at a real entry.  The kind sane people write when they want to talk about their lives.  I did not intend to write it right now but I hit the wrong icon and instead of the front page I got the write an entry window.  So I am writing…

    Photo relates to nothing.  It's an old one from Lacrosse or maybe Rochester.  Probably Lacrosse.  I've lost my love of photography.  It has to do with time.  I'm not who I used to be and I don't care about what I used to care about.  When I come here to write, I don't care very…

    I've been taking sunrise and sunset pictures this week but this is one from last year.  I have no good explanation why.  Just is. I don't have much to say right now.  I writing too much other places.  I have no focus.  I thought I was loving the  new season and maybe I am but…

  • Apologies for previous entry…
    April 22, 2018
    I've written that kind of thing before and I believe it and it's generally true for me but it's not very kind.  Everyone is not in the same situation.  Everyone cannot always do the 'right' thing.  And after a few knocks from fate it's very difficult not to do what you have to do.  …
