The Wisdom of Kermit – Who said that every wish would be heard and answered?


Have you been half asleep And have you heard voices? I’ve heard them calling my name. Are these the sweet sounds that called The young sailors, I think they’re one and the same. I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it, There’s something that I’m supposed to be Someday we’ll find it The Rainbow […]

When Feathers Float Away


Sometimes things are heavy and they hurt when they slam into me. If I were a football player I’d be prepared and wear pads and a helmet, but I’m just a mom with a rational fear of head injuries. I’d rather my troubles were light and feathery and would just float away on a cool breeze […]

Home Again, Home Again


My nose and eyes are adjusting to the green, green moss of home again. The high desert of Bend, Oregon is definitely beautiful in it’s own way, and I know I’ll complain about the rain in Eugene this winter, but for now—dang, it’s beautiful here in the rain forest!

Aerobic Love-making for Fitness


And yet another gem of an interview from my afternoon on Melrose Place, post Oprah audition. I met Kamil while having lunch at his restaurant, the Blu Jam Cafe, with friends Michael and Anna. How many calories do you burn during sex? Seems to me it depends on the sex…

Stuff is Overwhelming


So you know how I’ve been pretending, ignoring, acting like this moving away thing is no big deal? It’s a lie. It’s wearing me out. Despite the garage sale and the big truck from Habitat for Humanity hauling away a bunch of furniture, and ten, twenty, more-than- I-can-actually-count trips to Goodwill to drop off car load after […]

“I’ll Take ‘Things I’m Good At’ for 200, Alex”


I haven’t watched Jeopardy in a while, but I am a list maker, and a list giver. My kids are used to lists. Alex Trebek would not phase them. The other night, as I was frantically working through my list before bed on my computer at the dining room table, the children complained – OK, […]

Technical Difficulties


“Why.the.hell.isn’t this working?” I growled.  “Do you want me to look at your computer?” he sighed. “No. I just want it to work. It should just work.” Like cars. When you put the key in, they should start. “I wonder if there’s some kind of cash award for the person who has the most ridiculous computer […]

Bras Bras Bras


Here’s the truth: I have too many bras. I’m embarrassed to tell you the exact number. There are so many that I can actually group them into little groups. If I were the organized type, I’d have custom, labeled dividers in my dresser drawers for each group. I wonder if Martha Stewart does. Here are […]

My Best Kiss Ever


Let’s talk about the fine art of kissing. You know, a good, old fashioned lip lock. Wikipedia: A kiss is the touching of one’s lips to another person or object, used to express love, passion, affection, respect, greeting, and good luck. The word comes from Old English cyssan “to kiss”, in turn from coss “a […]
