Air Dry

I opened up the windows in my office today. It’s chilly out, and they were not open for very long, but sometimes a girl needs fresh air inside. I get fresh air outside when I walk Jack, or sit out back, but there’s something different when outside sweeps through my inside, my closed off. I tend…

Close Fit

There was a young woman at Whole Foods tonight in a wheelchair. She looked like she may have been recently released from the hospital.  I instinctively recognized the telltale bandages, tape, and that weak, but happy to be out, look.  She was smelling the natural soap slices with her brother, maybe her boyfriend.  She was smiling and I stood…

Red Cape

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s CVS? CVS has decided it’s new business model is to move toward a “place of wellness.”  I’m not sure that’s going to work, in fact, I’m pretty sure they will go bankrupt. It appears part of their plan is to remove cigarettes from all stores by October.  The…

Belt

I’ve been thinking that the airport could be a metaphor for life. I know, enough with the metaphors, but I’m sitting around with tissue sticking out of my nose and Downton Abbey is not providing the same comfort Sesame Street did when I was a child.  So, I turn to thinking and that brings me…

Drop Waist Skirt

I fell on Friday. I’ve been hiking Piestewa Peak (Squaw Peak) for almost a year.  I hike the summit trail and it’s taken me a long time to get up to speed.  When I first started my knees really hurt on the decent so I wore straps on my knees. Eventually I built up my…

Febreze

I smelled like vitamins all last week.  There may be more fragrant vitamins out there, but mine smell really nasty.  It’s not a good scent to be wearing around. I’m forever fishing things out of pockets when I do the laundry.  I can always tell what my children are eating, outside of the lunch they…

Birkenstocks

Jason Mraz does not have attractive feet. He recently posted a picture of them  with the caption “Thank you feet. For all the places we have been. For all the places we will go. ” I mean they’re not ugly feet, but he’ll never be a foot model.  Fortunately for him he has about a dozen other…
