(5) Things we love…#144

Posted in Things We Love

I hope you are in the mood for reading. With the heat wave that hit Southern California, anything other than sitting on the sofa, in air-conditioning, with the nose in a book, is pretty much the only option the dogs and I have. Portia ventured out early this morning and was promptly bitten by a coyote – I think they are angry about the heat too, and resenting my dogs’ indoor charmed life. Me, I am just glad I am not in Texas.

Jolting our memory into poetic action

Posted in Life & Love

For the last 15 years, on and off, I have stuck to a habit that gives me immense pleasure. In a pedagogic effort not to be pedantic and, at the same time, introduce poetry in the lives of my step-children, I took to tacking a poem to the fridge every week or so. This habit went to join the long list of “weird things our step-mother does” but, children long gone, it makes me happy to this day.

I wake up to coyotes serenading my windows, cloaked in fog. They drive my dogs crazy, taunting them from the backyard, eating the dates fallen on the ground. Strange Summer – it hasn’t been hot in a long time and I have only gone to the beach once. Not that I am complaining: we get enough sun here in Southern California. So I will enjoy the last of the cool before the thermometer goes up again. Maybe I will steal a few hours from work next week and sneak to a beach.
