The story I am left with held no dreams, no torment, no fear.
Peace? Perhaps. But who would know?

As she dozed on the crowded city bus, draped on the bench atop her plastic bags, mismatched luggage - all of her belongings - I snapped her picture. Trying not to stare her awake, I looked away. Her imprint in my mind morphed into a PIETA - a bag-lady-crucified-Christ, the blue vinyl of the bus seat the Holy Mother holding her. Something about her made me think of peace.
She must have been a "regular" on the route, for when the driver braked, he indicated it was her stop and asked that her fellow passengers awaken her. No one moved, though everyone heard, and since I knew their paralysis was unique to Minnesota and incurable, I stepped up. Shaking her shoulder gently and saying, "Excuse me, Ma'am?" in a clear loud voice, I tried to rouse her. The skin of her face was paper thin and paper white - complicated lines of weather and time flashed a sweet smile as her dream ended and her eyes opened. I explained we had arrived at her stop and helped her gather her life's luggage and disembark.
She haunts me still. Did I do a good thing by helping her get where she was going? Or was my action an assault? An interruption of the temporary peace that her passing dream-time had provided; a minute's paradise in a life I doubt she'd ever dreamed would be hers.

Students and Advisors gather in horror when they realize that Ronald Reagan is just a fading memory for Generation-Next... and pretty much for his last term in office, sad.

Why hasn't it? Or has it? Have YOU committed it? Would you like to Confess? Anonymously, maybe?
Or is there Anyone you'd like to ACCUSE?
Unburden yourself to the epistle, my friend. You'll feel better. We'll both feel better.
... and speak directly into your computer's microphone... no reason.

"I'm sure you're wondering why I've called you all here today...?"
Daddy's pickin' and Baby's a grinnin'.
Flowers, Kitty-cats and Babies. Hope your sweet tooth is satisfied. I'll have to darken things a bit after my Fourth of July Patriotic Extravaganza!
Here, she's just sitting and staring into space quietly planning to attack the toilet paper roll in the bathroom or run across the kitchen floor sliding into the refrigerator with a thud as her little skull hits the door.
This is my old kitty, Stinky. Her full name is Stinkerella Fifi Louise Hogan. The picture below is by far my best version of her, I think it captures her wildness and sense of play!
Below, her calico body blends effortlessly as she seems to float on the patterned home-made quilt beneath her. I miss my Stinky. She lives with her other Daddy in Minneapolis.
Flowers, kitty cats - what next? Babies. Excellent guess!

No not snake-bit - though moving back to Texas has increased my chances of that happening. Actually I've been bit by the Art bug of late and have been exercising my creative muscles visually.
