 Too Nice.

Too Nice.  The worst, worst thing I just can’t stand. Sorry Ladies but this is mostly about You, mostly. When driving around which I try to keep to a minimum. On occasions, There is only enough room for one car to drive through at a time. So I will stop and flash to advise the other […]

 Musings From A Muse

I haven’t been here in a long time.  Much has happened.  I’m divorced, living in a brand new apartment.  It’s taken awhile to feel worthy of being in the space I am.  Why are we so hard on ourselves?  I have a male friend who is the opposite.  He has a grandiose idea of himself.  […]

 Patience and Peace

A person would assume that as one ages, patience would be more prevalent in one’s life and timeline but for myself, and much to my chagrin, patience is still the ever-illusive dream only intermittently popping it’s head through the clouds.

 Why all the fuss?

I was brought up in central Scotland in the 50’s and 60’s so my first real contact with people of a different race was at 18 in the army. Now there was a lot of prejudice about, but as I’d never met anyone other than white I decided to do what I always did and […]

 Christmas – Time for Christians, only?

Christians all over the world look forward to Christmas, feast days which they celebrate for hundreds of years world-wide. In these days, that’s my impression Christmas has become obsolete fort the young generations in special! How about you? What’s your meaning of Christmas ( does it means anything for you? ) How was Christmas celebrated by […]

 Old Movies, Starring Who?

Have you ever talked about old movies, and someone younger doesn’t know the famous (albeit) older actor? My son-in-law, a nice guy in his 30’s, has a poster of James Dean on his wall. My daughter loves Audrey Hepburn.  One day, I was gushing about Clark Gable in “It Happened One Night”, and he said, […]
