Sad. Glad.

Spring and the Luna Corona Rushed this morning. Wanted to add a couple of things this afternoon. First, feelings of sadness, grief have washed over me this afternoon. Close to tears. Not sure why though confinement, continuing difficulties for Kate, she’s down to 93 pounds, and blood pressure that won’t stay stable don’t give me […]

Spring and the Corona Luna Wednesday gratefuls: The chicken. Carrots. Onion. Celery. Peas. Corn. Water. Gas, piped up the side of Shadow Mountain by Colorado Natural Gas. The stove. Makers of pots and pans, wooden spoons, ladles. That old recipe off the Golden Plump chickens. The frozen egg noodles. Kate’s got a fingers appointment this […]

Resilience: starting a conversation

Spring and the Corona Luna Tuesday gratefuls: Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn above the ridge of Conifer Mountain this morning. Brenton, who will probably take Murdoch this Saturday. The Talmud, weird and wonderful. Dante’s Divine Comedy, which I plan to re-read soon. Yes, I read the whole thing. Mark Odegard, who said, “On many levels I […]

I do.

Imbolc and the Leap Year Full Moon Tuesday gratefuls: 30 + years with Kate. Remarkable and wonderful. Cousins near and far. Especially Diane in San Francisco. Max Von Sydow. Liv Ullman. Ingmar Bergman. That art festival at United, circa 1972 or so. The red tinted halo around the Leap Year Full Moon. Kate’s work on […]

Life in the ohr mines

Imbolc and the Leap Year Moon Wednesday gratefuls: Sleep. Up at 6:45. Cold nights. Electric blanket. Perfect. The sun and blue sky. Fresh, brilliant white snow. A quiet house. Latvia, a nation of introverts. Reincarnation possibility? Art Green and his student, Rabbi Jamie. Chocolate. Pretzels with a zing. My treadmill. Kettlebells. Stall mats. Roku. Netflix. […]

Antonio

Winter and the Leap Year Moon Oh, man. Antonio the dog trainer came. Murdoch bit him. Shit. Antonio is a young man, maybe 30. A lumberjack or hipster beard, hiking boots, jeans, a blue wool jacket. He has an easy smile and wore what I recognized as a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy hat. My […]

So, that happened.

Winter and the Future Moon Thursday gratefuls: No infection in the bite so far. My elbow joint moves smoothly and all my fingers wiggle. Gertie and Kep snuggled in with me with this morning, didn’t insist on getting up. Rigel was quiet in the room with Murdoch. The fat waxing crescent of the future moon […]

The Abyss Stares Back

Samain and the Fallow Moon Got a workout in. Some more work on the bagel table. Here’s a couple of quotes I’m using as resource material: “Paul Ricoeur speaks of the vertigo of “being already born that reveals to me the non-necessity of being here.”” Zornberg, p. 127 “The problem of Sarah’s death is, profoundly, […]
