New Day, New Hair

Change is in the air...and the hair...haven't had it short since moving to Idaho. Gotta let go sometime!

Funny about Living this Life

Well-wriiten fun about our choices in the lifetime...

Here is my favorite part for those who need a summary:

Most of my married friends now have children, the rewards of which appear to be exclusively intangible and, like the mysteries of some gnostic sect, incommunicable to outsiders. In fact it seems from the outside as if these people have joined a dubious cult: they claim to be much happier and more fulfilled than ever before, even though they live in conditions of appalling filth and degradation, deprived of the most basic freedoms and dignity, and owe unquestioning obedience to a capricious and demented master.

I have never even idly thought for a single passing second that it might make my life nicer to have a small, rude, incontinent person follow me around screaming and making me buy them stuff for the rest of my life. [Note to friends with children: I am referring to other people’s children, not to yours.] But there are also moments when some part of me wonders whether I am not only missing the biological boat but something I cannot even begin to imagine — an entire dimension of human experience undetectable to my senses, like a flatlander scoffing at the theoretical concept of sky.

Friendship Abounds

A simply glorious reunion of friends out in Mazama this past weekend -- delights aplenty on the edible and companionship fronts. Our dear friend Lara took these amazing photos of the kids; what an artist!
