prince philip and my mum

What do Prince Philip and my mum have in common? They are both 97. And at least from my family’s viewpoint, they are both royalty. Philip’s recent car accident prompted this article in The Guardian about when is it time for our seniors to stop driving. Writer Nick Duerden doesn’t definitively answer that question in his article; […]

snow crows

“First Snow” I’m dreaming and I see a hand striking a heavy wooden door repeatedly. I hear the knocking VERY LOUDLY. I match the knocking with a loud shout out in my sleep, “COME IN!” and this wakes me up. I am no longer asleep. Now I am having a conscious dream in waking life. […]

somewear everywhere

Today our great friend Roberto’s son Alan notified me of a super cool kickstarter project he’s working on called Somewear. It’s a device and app to provide global hotspot coverage at an affordable price. Remember when Alan came to Goa on his spring break and saw Scott and me? (click here). I know Scott would […]

Since then, Panjim is bustling with activity: a gigantic super bridge is being constructed over the river, Manipol Hospital has a fancy new facility…and, […]

I was so very pleased to donate this Donald Lipski sculpture to the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro before I left High Point this week. Donald verified for me that this was his work from a residency he did in Italy in 2002. Scott and Donald were good friends. Scott and I knew that the […]

leaving high point

It took me two and a half months to prepare the High Point, North Carolina house and organize my move to Maine. It’s been a challenge to 1) make a decision 2) figure out what needed to be done 3) let go of things I no longer need (including the lifestyle that Scott and I […]

don’t fence me in

  This abstracted fence combo of railroad ties, picket fence, and chainlink adorned the front of our North Carolina property for nearly 10 of the 12 years I’ve been here. It served a purpose: we had two dogs then and we were away in Maine six months of the year. It also allowed Scott’s imagination […]
