 Good Read

I have just finished reading “Elizabeth is Missing” by Emma Healey.  I can only be described as old, now, and I fear dementia more than anything.  The book is all about dementia and it is a remarkable, very, very clever grafting together of a past life and a life that is never clear.  (As an […]

 Flesh Flashing

This is kind of a fun blog but I’m interested to know what others think.  Fashion is everything in some people’s world and especially so for the manufacturers of clothing, shoes, cosmetics, and anything to do with the presentation of self.

 Your Best Day

I had a very good day yesterday. I didn’t win a large sum of money, I did not receive a great honor, and I didn’t discover a new love, but I had a good day or a day about as good as it gets. I recovered from an infection and I went to the gym. […]
