making 86 worth getting to

making 86 worth getting to

My grandmother turned 86 last month. She told me that if you’ve lived as wonderful a life as she has, both the good and the bad, then 86 is worth getting to. The thing I’ve learned over the past few years is that who I am at 60 is determined by the choices I make […]

blue skies

I don’t like the LA sky. You know those moments when you’re walking or driving and the air is just the precise shade of warm and the right song comes on and suddenly everything is wonderful. I usually look up at the sky to see that the world is so much bigger than me… In […]

Good Friday

I appreciate when Good Friday is overcast. It seems appropriate. I know, this isn’t the actual day that Jesus died. But I suspect the Earth knows the right day; that it bears a scar the way you can see a storm in the rings of a tree, even if humanity has lost track. So today, […]

living out loud

Some days you’re driving and someone in a car near you is smoking and it wafts into your car and every now and then, when the right melancholy song is on the radio, it smells good. Maybe you have to have smoked once or twice for that to be the case. To have felt it […]

gorgeous days – the long story…

I drove up to the post office on my lunch today, like I do most days. As I was parking I thought, “How many months have I been parking at this post office?” and “How long am I going to let this go on?” No interesting mail so I get back in the car to […]
