Sewing or Sailing

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

First posted August 14, 2010 I admit that today I would much rather be sailing than sewing.  I sometimes get an overwhelming urge to once more live and work at sea.  Today’s one of those days that I’m missing the life of a sea person.   I had to memorize this poem when I was in […]

Are You Glowing Yet?

Monday, June 10th, 2013

First posted July 19, 2010 I don’t know about where you live, but it’s hot and muggy down here.  I’m sweating perspiring glowing up a storm here.  Women glow or glisten.  We aren’t supposed to sweat.  That offends the Southern woman’s sensibility.

More Thoughts from the Asylum

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

      First posted August 14, 2009 The title is what it is.  More thoughts. Never measure your self-worth from the opinion of others. Smiles are free. I feel like a fish.  We all need to be in school with each other. A hero is one who can hang on one minute longer. I […]
