Caitlin and I used to walk together almost every day, now I feel like I hardly see her. I was so happy when she suggested we take the dogs for a walk today, after she took a self-portrait. I’ve been lucky enough to accompany her on her self-portrait forays, offering my services as dog wrangler […]
*I found this in my drafts today. I’m not sure why I didn’t post it, perhaps it got lost in the shuffle. I think I wrote it on Oct 19, 2019. Days before I met David, still drowning in grief. Enjoy, or whatever you feel when you read something like this. I talk to MPT […]
Back in my 20s I had a really good friend who would go to Durango all the time. I never went with her but I pressed her to tell me what was worth the 7 hour drive. She never quite got through to me. Suffice to say, I think Durango is great. In fact, I […]
I am headed to Durango with BF for a few days. We are stopping in Grand Junction to have lunch with my dear Marcia whose health has taken a turn for the worse. I’m not ready to talk about it yet but suffice to say I will be spending as much time with her as […]

I think I left my laptop at the BFs house. Funny how I haven’t noticed until now. That means this post, written entirely with my thumbs, will be short. Today was a big day. I sold my Shasta trailer after coming to terms with the fact that it just didn’t make sense to have it. […]
I’ve referred to the neighborhood social networking site Nextdoor a few times, it’s a place where people can post about garage sales, ask for recommendations for handymen, send out an alert about a lost pet (or in my case, a found one) but mostly it’s where people go to complain about their neighbors. Usually it […]
Sometimes I leave out details that might upset someone who reads my blog – and believe me, there are times when I wish it was anonymous – sometimes I am writing it from the perspective of the person I want to be, maybe putting the cart before the horse.
Do you know who wasn’t impressed by the 4th of July fireworks?
