Scott used to love telling the story of how we met. His great friend Joe Gantz–creator of the hit television series on HBO Taxicab Confessions, among other documentaries–and my friend, Joe’s wife then-blogger/now-novelist Corine Gantz, introduced us.

Today would have been Loolie’s 13th birthday. The two Rons, my friends in LA, sent me this poem by Robinson Jeffers. I will read it aloud at Sand Beach when I scatter Loolie’s ashes. I am not lonely. I am not afraid. I am still yours. The House Dog’s Grave (Haig, an English bulldog) I’ve […]
“My Kind! ” serendipitous discovery on a backroad of Vermont when Loolie was a puppy. I’ve struggled to put down words to describe Loolie’s last day on The Mothership. It seemed divinely guided and, I believe, Loolie directed me in everything that happened that day. Even in this, she thought she was the alpha. Let […]

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 […]
Today whilst reading New York Times’ wonderful article on why boy mammoths tended to die in silly ways, I was inspired to go “Like” The New York Times Science facebook page. They are currently featuring a pink praying mantis as their profile pic. Perusing the comments on this pic led me to one that said […]

Sitting on my deck, meditating on my garden and the emergence of an abundance of Monarch butterflies in it this summer…when I suddenly noticed that Fishgirl was sporting a stunning new bracelet. Yes, it’s an incredibly poignant and auspicious chrysalis placement. I feel like the Queen of the Butterflies.
Last evening I was showing off my garden to my friend Nancy. While we were walking around the yard, Nancy spotted a fully grown Monarch butterfly spreading its wings out on the lawn. Worried that we or my dog might destroy it in a misstep, Nancy gently picked it up and put it onto a […]
