my Super two cents

“Ms. S, please keep a close eye on Daniel, he suffered a concussion in last week’s game. His assignments will need to be modified and if he starts to act strange, call me.” “Ms. S, just letting you know Aaron will be a few minutes late for class. He tore his ACL in last week’s …

Light & Fluffy

I make popcorn the old-fashioned way. My dad’s way. I heat the oil. The perfect hot. Then I sprinkle kernels across. Smack Smack Smack Smack Smack Smack Smack Scatter but don’t double-stack. Then the dance begins. Watching. Right hand – lifting and shaking the pan. Return to the heat. Repeat. Shaking Shaking Shaking Metal and …

Golden Pink Gone

At least a dozen Happy Hours are just down the road; a theme and special for every liking. Attractive and peppy attempting to lure people into their brand of happy. “No thank you, I have somewhere else to be.” The hue is changing, I must move quickly. Cheers to their form of happy – pouring, …

Intersection of three passions

When a hummingbird buzzed near my ear, making my hair lift during my morning meditation in the desert, I had a feeling I might be in for a special day. I was correct. I joined ten other women at a trailhead outside of Tucson yesterday morning. We hiked our way to a beautiful destination, then …

Superstition Mountain

Outlined in the distance, its powerful presence has been a vision to admire, even worship; not a painting I thought to fold myself into, especially when the setting sun transforms the mountain of stone into a majestic goddess. From my knees, I would praise, but never once have I thought myself worthy of such magnificence. …

Roam Free

I drank from a water fountain that quenched me as a kid. Much lower to the ground than I remember. (The fountain, not me!) circa late 70s, early 80s... Small hands released warm water gurgles that thirsty mouths slurped up. Impatient voices from the sweaty line behind shouted, “Hurry Up!” We were little squirmy gerbils …

Tucson Road Trip – Part I (video)

The stillness swept over me before I stepped inside. The rush of the city miles behind me. A lone hawk slowly descends in a swooping circle, riding the wind. The scent of desert rain and creosote, I breathe in. The only sound is the crunch of gravel underfoot. I step across the threshold. The rush …
