three good things

At the farmers market last week they were selling bergamonts.  I had never seen them before.  The fruit to season Earl Gray. Monday we got rear-ended.  Luckily the person was going slow.  It was a surprise, and no one was hurt.  We were leaving a parking lot.  Our back bumper got whitened, like the plastic… Read More »

good idea

I got an idea.  I think I’m going to do some filing.  I have too many papers.  I need to throw some away, move some through my life, pass them along.  But some I do want to keep, and keeping them randomly on my desk is not working. I want my file box to be… Read More »

blessed is she among women

I’ve been listening to this song a few times a day for a while now.  Sufjan Stevens Christmas music is appropriate regardless of month and season.
