I have done a lot of peopling today and now I am weary. Last Saturday, I ended up in a conversation with one of the women who comes to get food at my friends’ outreach at the park. You can tell that at one point in her life, she had more going on for herself […]

It was 4 am and I was debating the virtues of putting the kettle on or brewing coffee instead. Coffee won, after multiple other activities: hair washing, laundry, starting up the essential oil diffusers, watering the plants, topping off the fish tank, arguing with the cat, and using the shop vac to tidy the garage.

Marvin wasn’t ever late. He seemed to grumble more than ever at the notion of lateness. Maybe it was his Air Force training, who knows. I went to Marvin’s funeral today. This post might make you sad if conversations about life, death, and all that do so. Not that such is my intention, but that’s […]

‘You fed him what now?!’ She didn’t actually say those words, but the level of panic oozing from her written words was similar.

I blinked rapidly as he spoke in a low voice, a smile playing at the corners of his mouth. ‘Not expecting to see me, where you?’ ‘Of course not. Because you were dead the last time I checked.’ He winked. ‘Well, I guess you got that wrong too, just like everything else. For somebody so […]

Route map for 3 July 2017 by Andree Robinson-Neal on plotaroute.com If the back half of a giraffe, George Jefferson, TARS from ‘Interstellar’ (who, along with CASE, are my absolute favorites and the only reason why I continue to watch this movie. That, and when Matt Damon goes Pfft! in that airlock), and the angle […]

Go on and say ‘Awwww!’. You know you want to. This scrumptious baby right here looks like the puppy I met last weekend at my volunteer. His human dad was still grumpy but his human mom was in much better spirits. I saw the pup, running between the legs of the people in the large […]
