Citrus, Crochet, and the Cubs


The Celebrated Satsuma

The Celebrated Satsuma

Today I got a satsuma from someone I know .  It was freshly-picked this morning and still has its stem and leaves on.  I like the taste of satsumas – kind of orange-like, but not.  This is a real treat.  Sometime I’d like to get enough of them to make marmalade.

As part of my downsizing project in this Year of Change, I’m in the middle of going through all the doilies I crocheted years ago.  So many years ago, they are now considered vintage.  I decided to keep all those my aunt crocheted, plus only a few of ones I made.  If the majority of them are sitting in a box, why store them when others can enjoy them?

The Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series after all these years.  The final game sure was a nail-biter, and there even was a rain delay to add to the drama.   Hey! Hey!  Holy Mackerel!  No doubt about it!  It’s about time for that win, in this Year of Change.

We all could use a winning year, don’t you think?

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. If the Cubs’ winning the World Series doesn’t underscore this being the Year of Change, I don’t know what does. 🙂
