Rent the convertible

convertible freedom 

Reflections on my second year in Colorado


Rent the convertible, eat that delicious high calorie lunch, wear your bikini without waiting for six pack abs, go to Paris, make love on a sunny Monday afternoon, drink that fancy wine and use the crystal glasses while you do so. WearRead full post »

Silence is not always golden



1.       Say something in order to convey information, an opinion, or a feeling.

2.       Have a conversation: "I'll speak to him if he calls".

I like men who....

“Only one way to get there; you gotta get a little mud on your tires.” – Brad Paisley

I like men who wear jeans and white shirts and who smell like soap, not perfume, and it’s okay if they wear running shoes when they run, but not on a date. IRead full post »

Not taking any shit in NYC

New York is a marvelous place, and even though I would not want to live here, I am grateful for it’s existence, it’s ‘don’t ‘f’ with me’ attitude and endless array of interesting human beings. Today when I walked to and from my meeting in SoHo, I heard more fRead full post »

Because we must


the desk where magic happens (in my opinion)“Writers are people for whom writing is more difficult than everyone else.” – Dennis Palumbo

Writing can be a lonely job and the task of putting your words to paper is exhausting, as well.  There are those who mistakenly think we writers write because it comes na… Read full post »

I’ve been in my new home for almost five months now and every day is a new adventure for both my soul and my physical being.  The soil beneath my feet when I walk the trails at Chautauqua has become familiar and I have made peace with the things I have had to/Read full post »

Time traveling in Colorado

Last July I saw my brother running on top of a snowfield in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, northwest of Boulder, Colorado. His smile was broad and his towheaded little body was made up of awkward angles, a trademark of many young boys around nine. His face reflected the carefree wonder andRead full post »

Seeking Mr. Right

I’ve been single for five years now after a marriage that lasted 18 years.  I say lasted, because the reality is it lurched, chugged and then stalled out, and never made it across the finish line but instead concluded in divorce. 

I love men.  Truly.  Two of my absolutely c… Read full post »

A senior citizen at 50?

A title in today’s (Thursday, 9/16) Salon reads “Why are so many seniors getting STD’s,” and when read it, I found it was about people over 45.  My Facebook page invites me to meet seniors in my area, or ‘men over 50.’  AARP publications get tossed in the… Read full post »

First we cry

First you cry.  I believe Betty Rollin made this comment after discovering she had breast cancer, and part of me hesitates to say this since the tears I am talking about are not related to life or death issues.

But the truth remains, first you cry.

Just look over your shoulder

It’s the damn Tarzan song that makes my eyes finally fill up.  You know the one, “You’ll be in my heart,” with the line that always gets me “just look over your shoulder.”  Oh man.  I remember the first time that song made me cry.  I was newly s/… Read full post »
