Gratitude Monday: After Glow, BlogHer14

I almost stayed home from BlogHer’s 10th anniversary celebration.  Then, I saw a early bird ticket for sale.  I acted on the spur of the moment.   It was a long shot.  I really couldn’t afford it.  I probably wouldn’t get it. I did. Oh my!  Now what?  It’s in San José.  Maybe I can find a room-mate.  I sent out a request on the Women of Midlife Facebook page.  It was a long shot.  I only met a few of the members last year.  Probably no one would want to take a risk on a stranger.  Kay Lynn responded immediately. …

Photo Friday: Sunsets

Sunset over water fills me with peace. The light calms my soul. Children murmur.. The breeze whispers…Dinners beckons from outdoor grills.. Even pirate ships seem benign. Related articles A sunset on water Sunset

Photo Friday: Chicago, The City that Works

Comments I heard: Ooooo!  I never saw it from this angle. before. Is it new? It looks like people from the neighborhood are here. People are hardcore urban here. Look, Look, Look. People actually live and work here. Let’s sit down and talk a while. I love this city.

Photo Friday: A Michigan Cliché

I saw the Michigan bird (Robin) building a nest among the Michigan blossoms (Apple.) Michigan, My Michigan.  (Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam circumspice.)   Sometimes you grab my heart in ways unexpected. (I saw your white-tailed deer standing on my irises, too.)

A Gift of Time

The greatest gift we have is our time. – Meditation from St. Francis Xavier

It’s cold and winter is here; summer still clings with all her might.  Sometimes, that’s the way I feel.  I love summer.  Still, there’s something invigorating about a brisk walk in crisp air.

My friend Geri gifted me with a day in Chicago with friends. Of course I can go anytime, but I don’t.  I wait for a reason. What better reason than time with a friend.

First we visited the French Market.  I never knew

STEM A Fathom Event The Day of The Doctor

 

The Doctor has changed appearance ten distinct...

My first Fathom Event:  Dr. Who Day of the Doctor in 3-D.  Was it worth it?  Heck Yes!

Loved-One is a fan of Doctor Who.  Not a Johnny-come-lately fan, Loved-One can name all the companions since Romana I, Roman II, who came out of nowhere with no explanation, and K-9, Loved-One’s favorite companion.  And what about his favorite Doctor?  Tom Baker, hands down.  Tom Baker and his crazy 10 foot scarf.

I’m a late comer.  I started with Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor and Rose (Billie Piper)  as his companion.  The Empty Child pointed out a big difference between British television and American.  British children die.  Lots of British children die.

I’m crazy about Doctor Who; my favorite re-generation is David Tennant.  I cannot decide which companion I like the most:  Is it Rose, or Amy and Rory, or Clara, or maybe Martha.  Jack Harkness
