Remembrance of A Roman Holiday Past

roman street, originally uploaded by coolfonzies. Once upon a time I lost all of my luggage in Rome. Through sheer stupidity, through force of habit. Because I behaved as an accidental tourist instead of a seasoned traveler. But that would come later, honed carefully after years of globe-trotting. Fresh out of a semester abroad in […]


Ann, originally uploaded by elefanterosado. I met Ann at a coffee shop in Jersey City. Despite the incredibly casual environment, she was dressed in immaculate Chanel style for a mid day luncheon, reminding me very much in looks and style of my born-and-bred in Rye, New York grandmother. My grandmother who took me to the […]

Farewell Summer Memories

Boat House, originally uploaded by elefanterosado. A boat house snuggled behind tall sea grass at low tide bids farewell to summer. The sky is blue, the air cool. I love to walk down this beach, smell the salt spray, and watch the phantoms of my childhood float by. It’s always so good to come home. […]

I Have Seen God & He Drinks Tea & Smokes Cigarettes

originally uploaded by [ raymond ]. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. John 4:12 This sounds about right to me, which is why, as a mere mortal, I see no reason whatsoever that God should not be […]

A Day By Day Conversion

Vinnie at Kate Chopin Room, originally uploaded by Liz@rt. This was his text. It fell upon ears that had heard it before. It crept into the consciousness of Archibald, sitting there. As he gathered it into his soul a vision of life came with it; the poet’s vision, of life that is within and the […]

The Republicrite

Newt Gingrich at Manhattan Tea Party, originally uploaded by ajagendorf25. My husband’s entry into the Urban Dictionary: Republicrite: Combination of “Republican” and “Hypocrite”. A person, or politician who identifies themselves as a member of the Republican party and cries foul when the new (Democratic) administration does things that they (the Republicans) did with impunity when […]

The Light of Consciousness

Our inner light, originally uploaded by Unitopia. Like a stealthy thief of time, depression can descend and assault, poison the mind and numb the senses. And it can utterly obliterate a joyful sense of presence. I should know. I’ve walked this tightrope for years. I’ve both benefited from the unstable artistic temperament that provokes deep […]

The Conch Shell’s Song

Conch (or Whelk) Shell- Nantucket, originally uploaded by Chris Seufert. A loud cacophony of honking arrested my ears as I left my son’s preschool this morning. The mother of one of J’s classmates hurried outside and joined me in looking skyward. “Look, they’re coming our way!” she exclaimed. “Canada Geese?” I asked. “Yep,” she affirmed. […]

Song of The Soul

My life goes on in endless song Above earth’s lamentations, I hear the real, though far-off hymn That hails a new creation. Through all the tumult and the strife I hear its music ringing, It sounds an echo in my soul. How can I keep from singing? While though the tempest loudly roars, I hear […]
