A cold front is coming Ice from the West Still basking in high altitude sun The darkening clouds Prepare the transition From brunch to Mom’s unveiling Absent any comprehension How the weather works.

Dec. 16th – Thursday – at Dick’s loft – the day he came home from hip replacement

Packing Homemade cranberry sauce At dawn, Sipping Americano

She drove to St. Joe’s

And lo and behold Less than 36 hours After inserting One heavy metallic hip He was walking Well.

Our country is in dissolution. Little miracles Like this Happen every day.

Just back from Steamboat Springs, 2011

Ok I know I am older now I can feel it in my face

 

I want to look young to you Always Or is it I want to be desirable to you Always Or is it I Realize I Am Aging

And I’ve always looked young for my age
And That is changing.
