I didn't watch the Vietnam war series by Ken Burns.  I planned to, I wanted too but in the end it was too painful.

Friday, October 20, 2017

Heard rain in the middle of the night and then this morning there were puddles in my driveway. But now the sky is clear and the stars are out.

Thursday, October 19, 2017

good writing day at the library.  Unexpected.  good conversation.  Hope I sleep tonight.

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Had a long conversation with good friend at the Crossroads coffee house.  We call this place our office.  Sitting outside and the fog dissipated, drinking hot chocolate.  My friend asks me why I like hot chocolate.

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

It didn't get too hot today after all, some fog,some smoke. and Trump is still president.  sigh

Monday, October 16, 2017

slow day but tomorrow it is time to jump back in.  No more laying around and reading and eating cherries.

Sunday, October 15, 2017

heat, fires, smoke, earthquakes, floods, knees, and still Trump is president. sigh

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Huge cruise ship in the bay, I mean really big, the biggest I have seen and thousands of people unloaded on the dock looking for something interesting.  Don't look at me .  I am not interesting.

Monday, October 9, 2017

I can't stop reading bout the fires in Northern California and Santa Rosa.  Really firestorms.  So different then our mountain fires that last weeks and months.

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Went to McDonalds this morning to write but was distracted by the people coming and going.  And the birds dive bombing me on the patio.

Saturday, October 7, 2017

Trump scared me today, again. sigh.  And he is still president

Thursday, October 5, 2017

So the guy who drove the big truck out to fix my flat tire siad this was the second one today he had worked on in my neighborhood.  screws in  the tires.sigh

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

The plumber came yesterday and then today to fix the running toilet. Now I am listening to see if it will start running again.

Sunday, October 1, 2017

It has been a long time since I have spent the day without talking to a single other person.  Feels strange.

Saturday, September 30, 2017

A single high flying aircraft flew a dozen times over Monterey this afternoon with an air splitting roar.  the plane was shaped like a star.  Some new weapon that we should be afraid of.

Friday, September 29, 2017

The weather has shifted again.  not so hot.  Now what do I have to complain about.

Thursday, September 28, 2017

According to Rachel Maddow Trump is still president.  Sigh

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

My house heats up in the daytime and then is unwilling to cool off at night.  What am I going to do with this house.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

I sat at the beach on the 17 mile drive and watched lines of pelican fly close to the water and lines of Asian tourists go in and out of a bus taking selfies.

Monday, September 25, 2017

unexpectedly the heat has returned.  My bedroom is too hot.  I wish I could sleep outside.

Sunday, September 24, 2017

We are in the perfect season, Fall,not too hot , not too cold.  I have been watching Transparent on Amazon Prime.Season 4.  It is mesmerizing.

Friday, September 22, 2017

Trump is still president.  sigh.  We caught our third rat in the kitchen trap.  I wonder how many more we are gong to catch.

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Spent the morning at Highlands Inn overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  We talked and talked and the view faded from view in the midst of our words.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

I was cold last night,  time to put another blanket on my bed.

Monday, September 18, 2017

After talking about the smoke for an hour we finally called the fire department to check out the smoking cooking stove.  Burly men with tons of equipment came in.  No fire just smoke.  time to buy a new stove.

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Saw a netflix documentary on the world of dance that knocked me out.  MR GAGA, is the name.  It made me want to get up and move around but I resisted.

Saturday, September 16, 2017

I sat with my friend at the crossroads coffee house this morning.  We had endless things to talk about.  Then I went home to nap and to feel better.

Friday, September 15, 2017

I love the New Yorker.  Every week it shows up in my mail box.  There is always at least one kick butt article.  I have been reading the New York for 55 years.I can hardly believe that.

Thursday, September 14, 2017

I watched Hilary Clinton being interviewed on Rachel Maddow show tonight.  Such a sane wise woman.  Both of them

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

My car is covered with mud, thanks to the wind and the fog.

The new Hilary Clinton book arrived.  Yes.

Saturday, September 9, 2017

Saturday finally. Nothing planned today. sigh

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

It is all about weather now, wind storms, heat and hurricanes. Was it different in the good old days.

Monday, September 4, 2017

Our neighborhood had its labor day party and it was surprisingly good.  The extreme heat was gone and the food and conversation was satisfying.

Sunday, September 3, 2017

It is cooling off a bit outside but still in the house it is hot. I wonder if I could sleep outside.

Friday, September 1, 2017

too hot to sit n the house, cooler outside but the air is filling with smoke.  Don't know where the fire is.

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Tomorrow is my turn to give the talk at BBZ.  UMMM I wonder what I will talk about.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Sun came out this afternoon and we regained our shadows.  Wasn't sure it would happen.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Trump is still president.  Texas is being flooded away.  We are shivering in the fog and the dumpster outside my front door is purple.

Monday, August 28, 2017

I am reading such an interesting book, WOULD EVERYONE PLEASE STOP, reflections on life and other bad ideas by Jenny Allen.

Sunday, August 27, 2017

Been watching the TV reports on the flooding in Texas.  last year it as the fires near home.  Each year it is something.  And Trump is still president

Saturday, August 26, 2017

sitting outside in the evening.  Unexpectedly worm, crickets calling, sliver of the moon.  I am happy.

Friday, August 25, 2017

I am having a hard time reading my New Yorkers.  They come faster and faster and are beginning to pile up.  sigh

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

foggy today.  Trump is still president, yes really.  And for some inexplicable reason I am happy today.

Monday, August 21, 2017

I don't think the eclipse really happened this morning.  My friends and I sat outside shivering under the thick fog and nothing happened.  what a disappointment.  Of course we never actually saw the sun this morning so maybe that was the problem.

Sunday, August 20, 2017

stayed home all day today, through the early morning fog, the noon day sun and then the terrific windy afternoon.  Good day.

Saturday, August 19, 2017

I took a long nap this afternoon and had a significant dream, something really important and now I can't remember what it was.

Friday, August 18, 2017

We really are trapped at home this weekend as tens of thousands of cars are rolling into our town.  sigh

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

I have started reading a new book.  MY SKY BLUE TRADES  by Sven Birkerts. Already I am liking it.

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

I am sitting here in my living room at dusk stunned at Trump's last public announcement.  What are we to do?

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Trump is still president
No nuclear wars yet
another foggy day
