Ain’t All That


Happy 2015!  My immune system seems to be taking the year off.  A very snuffly and low key couple of weeks.  I did leave the neighborhood a couple of times with Art Child and Nerd Child, found a few bits of my old remembered New York through the new glass and steel skyscrapers that continue to pop up everywhere.

What have I been doing in between blowing my nose and thinking about blogging?  Catching up on reading.  The other day I finished a novel that stunned me with its beauty.

In contrast, I also found myself at *gasp* a shopping mall a couple of weeks ago.  I hate having to go to malls, I swear the air is a toxic mix of plastic and tranquilizer dust.  But I suppose it was worth it, because I now have two pairs of jeans that fit and don’t have holes, and when we walked through the parking lot I saw this.

I wonder if he felt the same sense of being in the wrong place.

Which made me think of this song, an old favorite:





  1. What was the novel? my curiosity asks. My brain says, No, don’t ask that. Sympathize with her about her cold. Yes, but I really want to know what the novel was. As you can see, I battle between brain and curiosity day after day. Sometimes one wins, other times the other wins. Kind of like the War of the Roses. Or the Capulets and the Montagus.

  2. Joni and the seagull are perfect! They go well with the sidewalk sign for La Colombe, too. Happy 2015, Mrs Fringe! I was curious about the novel you loved but see the title right above, so another book to read, I’m afraid…
