I travel with a nap sack on my back to gather stories and sit in the circle of humanity.
The Escape of Marigold Wolfie
The Escape of Marigold Wolfe Cologne Germany was post-card beautiful before the war with its Gothic architecture, connecting villages, and passionate people. It reveled in the cultural and religious differences of its inhabitants. When a baby was born, or a couple was married, church bells rang, and families gathered for celebrations.
Give Up The Box
A suspicious box may unleash the inner you. I woke up this morning with the strangest thought in my head. “What happened to the fury and fire ball in your belly?", the weird voice said. Although I laughed, my inner consciousness told me that I was on to something.
Necessity is The Mother
Events that change the course What started as a swim with the dolphins twenty years ago, became a life changing event that turned my focus toward becoming environmentally conscious. The experience set a plan for eco involvement for the future that would involve more than one project.
No Lack For Jack
At the beginning, of the Pandumbpanic, a bunch of friends vowed that no matter what transpired, we would stay on our diets, sleek and fit, and keep our respective groups safe and happy. Ten of us buddies, set out to have enough food in every nook and cranny of our living spaces. That was so that we could make great dinners with several families living together, and trade when necessary. The crie de jere in the beginning was to store superfluous amounts of cans and dry goods in cabinets, under the beds, in the garage and in my stomach.
The Hound Found Downtown
Years ago I had just moved to Tucson, before it became a sprawling city. I was living in the desert in a small rental home with a bunch of friends, and was working as a substitute teacher, trying to finish my degree. The only thing that was missing in my life was a dog. Dogs fill that empty space, with a magic that soothes every inch. They are there for you, in the good times, and the challenges, and they will find you, wherever you may be at just the right moment. So I decided that I would go to any length, to find a dog suitable to my lifestyle and could fill that void.
Where In The World Did That Come From
Where In The World Did That Come From I am a tourist, of the variety that becomes totally immersed in my travels. Along the way, I never know where a discovery will lead me, or who I will meet along the way. My usual MO, is to envelop myself in the fauna and flora, and history of the attraction I am visiting. When all is said and done, I will have collected dozens of pamphlets, research information, photographs and plenty of knickknacks, nap sacks, funny hats and door mats. But I was looking for the undiscovered sliver of information that could wow my friends.
The Big Catch
The Big Catch We grew up in the projects in New York, at a time when the kids sat on the stoops with their parents, who talked about getting away from the city over the weekend, for an excursion. The “Excursion,” as it was affectionately called, was typically a fishing trip to escape from the summer swelter. Our apartments were air conditioned but the buildings were old, and to save money, we apartment dwellers did whatever we could to get to the ocean. My mother, who was the leader of the fishing day trip adventures, spun her stories about the “Big Fish” that our gaggle of neighbor kids could catch on the boat, and she described in detail the perilous journey of luring in a monster size fish. There was always a trophy for the prized lure, and my sweaty drippy face friends sat wide-eyed in anticipation of the outing.
