DISCONNECTED

Trouble began with my AOL browser. The phone agent was able to reinstall it, but complained my computer was “slow.” Since I have an annual contract with Best Buy’s Geek Squad, the next day I called them. That phone agent even-tually indicated he could not fix the trouble. Oh-oh! He made an appointment […]

QUARANTINE

Editor’s note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal.

Gazing out the window at green grass and sunshine, I thought back over several months. Since March when JK and I first isolated, I feel a lot of empty space in my days.

Staying at home most of the time reminded me of 1952 […]

A HELPFUL MONKEY

Editor’s Note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal.

My office window shades slanted against the bright afternoon sun. Overhead a ceiling fan whirled. Every so often, the A/C blew cooled air into July’s continually warming house. I sat at my computer reading and responding to email.

My slanted blinds.

My laptop reported […]

A CURBSIDE LIBRARY!

By the end of May, our temperatures hit ninety every day. Even though our library was closed due to the pandemic, I enjoyed reading other books in my air-conditioned house!

Still, I grinned when an email announced, “curbside” public library operation would begin on the following Monday.

The library had been closed nearly two […]

COVID 19 ANTIBODIES?

Editor’s note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal.

Testing, testing! I hear about it on TV news. I read it is the key to gauging our pandemic But I have not seen or heard of testing available for personal requests. No. The first testing required symptoms and a doc-tor’s note. This week […]

March 12, Thursday. The thought of Covid 19 virus spreading throughout the United States has made me edgy. My concern is JK and I are in a vulnerable population: age seventy and older.

Since we both had flu shots and felt good, I […]

Signs

Editor’s note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal.

The calendar read December 2020, the last month of the year and also the end of the fiscal year for our Ninepatch corporation. Over past weeks, treasurer and friend, Georgene and I had exchanged emails nearly every day. She was double- checking information and […]

BLESSED BY BRITISH MYSTERIES

Editor’s note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal. My energy reminds me of fireworks. Up, up, up it goes through the morning. Around noon it bursts quickly losing color and brilliance, falling to earth and disappearing. How-ever, replenishing my get-up-and-go with a nap ruins my overnight sleep. Instead, I watch a mystery […]

DREAM THEMES

Editor’s Note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal.

When the media talks of examining one’s life for New Year’s Resolutions, I think about that and even make a few. Doing so encourages me to also look into my “inner life.” That’s more difficult.

As usual this year I see many […]

PICTURES FROM THE PAST

Editor’s Note: Following is a page from my spiritual journal.

I nosed my Honda under low-hanging branches of my cousin’s elm tree. Though the calendar read October, the afternoon was summerlike. I don’t want a hot car later on..

Cousin Julie and her husband Stan met regularly with me over recent months to […]
