L.D. #8 – with a twist

So after sending a huge bouquet with pathetic but sincere love note, hearing nothing, I went to visit. This was my second visit or so, in 15 months.    I went looking flashy with makeup, heels and a dress- which I can do, but usually don’t. The two new staff were nice, but a little frumpy.…

Change -a Ballerina’s[1] Perspective and Metaphor

I’m not much of a balletophile per se, that is, I don’t love watching people dance usually, but I love to be doing it. Or did, even though it can be distracting, if not a bit painful to do every movement with “rice crispies” crackling in joints! But then, I've had creaking and cracking since…

While apes have made significant “progress”, as have crows, rats  and every creature in between– and will continue to do so, our human capacity for executive thinking, is the distinct purview of man. At least until now. We all,…
