For Auld Lang Syne

31 Dec

We’ll take a cup of kindness yet…

And thus we come to the end of this part of our journey.  Earlier this year, I moved my blog from the domain name of the same to WordPress.  It was a time of regrouping and reflecting on just exactly what I wanted the blog to be.  So, having made that determination, or at least having developed a plan, tomorrow I’m moving back to the domain.

This site will remain as an archive.  But if you’ve reached here by mistake, and if it’s after midnight on December 31, 2010, head on over to The Write Side of My Brain.  You’ll find me there.

If you get there early, please be patient.  The official launch is 1/1/11.

Happy New Year!

Make it Snow Around the World (via WordPress.com News)

1 Dec

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? J. B. Priestley December 1st makes a lot of us think of the holidays. It's hard not to think about snow even if your climate doesn't bring it. Once again, we'd like to spread snow around the world through WordPress.com. To make it snow on your … Read More

Thanksgiving Day

25 Nov

A quiet morning at my parents before the house awakes.  Thinking and reading before the chaos begins.

I’m in the process of revamping the blog and will detail those changes soon.

In the meantime I’m preparing my heart for Christmas by rereading the Gospels and maybe digging into the Messianic prophecies of the old testament.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Rest in Peace, Jill Clayburgh

About Sarah Palin and Politico

1 Nov

So, according to Politico – Next for GOP leaders: Stopping Sarah Palin

Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.

I just can’t stand garbage like this. First of all, who are these anonymous sources? And why won’t Politico name them?

Secondly, “Top Republicans” are the reason we have Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. Their failure to lead when they were in charge led to this. As Scott Rasmussen pointed out in The Wall Street Journal tomorrow is A Vote Against Dems, Not for the GOP.

Finally, if the GOP “elites” want to make THIS their mission, let me be clear, Sarah Palin is not my candidate for 2012…

BUT she WILL be.
