I have had a crap week. The sky is gray and rain is imminent, but, the weather doesn’t have much to do with it. Customers? Very few and pretty much all weird. There have been upheavals in the friendship realm, but, things are back to normal. I hope. Friendship is one of life’s greatest rewards,… Continue reading Gray all around
I love the fall. Getting out my warm sweaters, looking forward to wearing the old suede jacket. Walking in the city on a Monday afternoon with the wind blowing through my hair. When I walk in the fall and the wind is blowing, I practically feel the airing of my brain. You know how you air… Continue reading The cleansing Fall wind
Cloudy and gray, just in case you wanted to know. Quiet Sunday ahead. Food shopping, a visit to the green market and a walk by the river with a new friend. I had a busy week, people were strange, preoccupied and not quite on. Next week is bound to be different. I hope. I have… Continue reading Kindness, more important than looks?
The sky is blue and so am I. OK, more pensive than blue. But, I had to get the weather in there somehow. I have been reading both James Agee and Raymond Carver. Fabulously realistic, sensitive writers. Very male and with a phenomenal ear for how people speak. Also, the insight into the quiet or sometimes… Continue reading On openess and finding truth
Well it is done, the sidewalk sale is over. Hallelujah! All in all it was OK, can’t complain. Helped me to renew with many nice people, which is great. The weather? Well, we went from wilting to… it’s a little bit cold and I’m happy about it. Air and wind good stuff. Up here in… Continue reading Survived the sale and enjoying the cool.
This day started hot. I figured it’s going to be hot and a write off. But, no it was fun. Lots of visitors and clients. A great end to the day, lovely dinner in delightful company. Can’t beat that. It’s nice to be appreciated. I hope I haven’t jinxed the rest of the sale. Later girls… Continue reading Great thursday
It’s hot. Enough said. This week is the dreaded sidewalk sale on the street where my Bookstore is situated. We have two a year, I hate them, exhausting, much ado about nothing. I imagine I won’t have much time to read or post on the blog. I’m still reading My Life As A Man by… Continue reading Busy week ahead
First the weather, it is perfect. Clear blue sky, cool breeze. Sleep is once again possible, let’s hope it lasts. Next, hockey season is right around the corner, I can’t wait. Yeh. I haven’t been reading much lately. Well, actually I haven’t been reading much I can talk about. A friend asked me to read… Continue reading On the merits of slow
The weather is back to the way I like it, cool and breezy. Admit it’s been a while since I mentioned the weather. This summer has been way up there, on the learning curve of life. Funny, you live forty-five years, you think you know a thing or two. Who you are, what your reactions… Continue reading Curve ball, shmurveball
I’m feeling nostalgic I was listening to some songs on You Tube. Funny, Ever listen to a song you haven’t heard for a long time and remember all the words? I was listening to a Mike And The Mechanics song The Living Years. I think all of us who have fathers who have passed can… Continue reading Lucky
