The fence blew down

Without power
24hrs and counting. 
Good thing I like storms.

The art of manhattans

Don't bruise the bourbon
You know you want to shake it hard...
Trust me, don't.

It's too damn early (good kitty)

Woke up to mouse catch
Kitty wants to play not kill
I want to sleep

Garden question

mildew on the leaves,
I've cut the worst out ...
can I eat the squash?

Midday slump

Tired + sore throat.
I hate to admit defeat.
More vitamin C.

While you sleep

A long hot shower,
quiet walk in the garden,
kitty killed a bird.

This week

Hello spinning beach ball of death. 
I just need one file ...

house guest

I hear you up there
scuttling about above my bed,
you were not invited.

Thank you fear for showing me
the things I most care about.
Now stop fucking with me.

boudicca the huntress

Stray orange kitty,
I can tell you are feeling better ...
Two kills in two weeks.


Resolve is my super power
Sometimes its my Achilles heel.
Today I surrender.


You teach me that
People are better than no people.
I'm still learning.

Surrounded by your people.
The only one who can let me in
your circle, is you.

From the sidelines I believe
Even when you can't see it, I believe
I don't cheer, I believe.

so much noise & nonsense

There is stillness in quiet,
an opening in mindfulness.
Who gave my brain candy?

Summer storm

Midday lightening.
Sky rumbles, windows battered.
My sentiments exactly.
