    A Conspiracy of Love

    “Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.”

    – Hamilton Wright Mabi

    Now that I have an opportunity to write, I’m realizing that I really missed my daily postings last week! It reminds me of when I moved away from home to go to the […]

    Pesca-what?

    “We all love animals. Why do we call some ‘pets’ and others ‘dinner?’”

    k.d. lang

    I’m a pescatarian, which is basically a vegetarian who eats seafood. Ever since I was a child, I was bothered by the sight of meat on my plate, but I couldn’t articulate my feelings. I […]

    Bill Vaughn

    When Fig is too quiet, it usually means trouble. I was in Pip’s bedroom, assisting with her fifteenth costume-change […]

    Dumb Digit

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

    Albert Einstein

    After boiling some pasta for the girls at lunch time, I was telling Pip that the pot was very hot and she shouldn’t go near it. For some idiotic reason unbeknownst to me, […]

    The Sleepover

    “In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.” — Ann Landers

    Pip wanted to play with her cousin last week and I explained that she was having a sleep-over at Grandma […]

    Who does she think she is?

    “In every artist there is a touch of audacity without which no talent is conceivable.”

    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    (I apologize to all of my non-local readers for this hyper-local post.)

    I recently heard from a woman named Lianne Raymond, who invited me to a documentary-screening called, […]

    Space

    “Language… has created the word “loneliness” to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word “solitude” to express the glory of being alone.”

    Paul Johannes Tillich, The Eternal Now

    Pip and I were snuggling together in bed one morning while Big-Daddy-O and Fig were getting a […]
