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.

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. […]

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.

I’ve seen myself as an activist intellectual, a thinker and a doer, since around junior high. Those were outer manifestations of an inner […]

Scheduled!

Fall and the Sukkot Moon With Kate’s 8:30 appointment in Denver yesterday we got to drive in rush hour during the season’s first snow. In our Minnesota tuned experience Colorado drivers, natives and sunbelt immigrants alike, have never learned the art of driving on snowy roads. We crawled down 285 with folks clearly frightened by […]

Lupron II

Fall and the Rosh Hashanah Moon And, yet more medical news. Went in for my second Lupron shot in the morning, at Swedish. Then, drove back in later in the day with Kate to the E.R. (see below) Talked to Sherry, the nurse practitioner for prostate cancer at Urology Associates. Turns out the protocol for […]
