I’m Losing It — Almost


Last night I was so very clever with a punchline to a conversation my beau and I had. It was so clever, it was going to be today’s blog. And darned if I can remember the witty conversation. So, all I can say is, “blah, blah, blah, giggle, giggle, . . . (and my witty remark was) “Well, that’s nothing; Elvis is running for office.”

Ha ha ha. Anyway, yes, there is a guy running for a congressional seat in Arkansas, and his name is Elvis D. Presley. You can read about it HERE, via UPI. This is not my endorsement.

What I learned from my forgetting the meat of our conversation last night that preceded my punchline, is that I need to jot down notes, just as I do when I’m in the process of reading books to review, or my ideas on writing poetry and short stories. The ol’ brain just doesn’t recall everything, especially when there’s more going on here at The Oasis than usual this month.

We are getting our backyard prepared for landscaping, and with that excitement and being tired at the end of the day is all the more reason to always have paper and pen to jot down notes, thoughts, and grocery lists. And something else, I just don’t remember what. Oh, yeah, my witty remarks.  Crazy, isn’t it?

The Landscapers Dug Up Our Yard

I’m NOT chalking it up to getting older. No way, no how.

Hope your day goes well and that you remember, ummmm, something.

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.
