Millie's Christmas Wish

To receive care

Ending in a Deadly Minor Key
grandparents, anger, anti bullying, dark, fear, green, grief,
So here's my question for this dawning day,
like a WinWin ruminating message in a bottle

The Easter Egg Hunt
grandparents, candy, chocolate, easter, family, funny, garden, spring,
I don't know how it started
But it's an annual event

The problem with trying to prove clairaudience, clairsentince, out-of-body, and Near Death Experiences to a Mudblood is not as simple

I grew up and out on a four family-owned,
extended matriarchal farm.
Four interdependent 1940s through 1970s patriarchally managed businesses,
without substantial questions about who should wear pants,
yet with a surprising matriarchal cooperative understory.
The boxers outnumbered the...

At seventy-two my life has been so very fine,
That I'd like to push a button and just rewind.
I'd go back to my wedding day so exciting
And marry again the man I found so...
Ecology of Sacred Earth
grandparents, earth, environment, health, political, psychological, spiritual,
Reading Csikszentmihalyi again,

which has nothing to do with anything that follows,
I am sure you are already...

grandparents, funny, irony, philosophy, psychological, , cute,
It begins, almost always, with a sneeze,
Which, in some cultures,
But, in some others, a curse,

Wisdom to Survive
anxiety, caregiving, grandparents, health, integrity, peace, youth,
When will we gain the wisdom to survive
of fascist climate-bullying tendencies
toward shrieking violence

Where are the all growed up
nurturing regenerate adults
in our capital cities?

Degrees of Separation
