Infusing more life into life

July 22, 2019

Last night, at almost 11, I was ready to tell our son he was busted for: after bedtime TV watching. His door was shut. The lights were still on and yes, he was so busted! I opened the door expecting to startle him but he was so into that little device screen. He didn...

I had to remember, in the moment that my teen and I were talking, “THIS IS MAGIC.” Not the scolding. Or my forthcoming punishment to reconcile with the universe. Or how bummed I feel because I think of all the echoes of teen voices in the universe who thought but didn’...

Well, my mother would have been 79 today had she lived.

Before we go on to celebrate Mother’s Day, I’m glad that I have a little Hyoism to share with you.

Our mother, Hyacinth Grenville, and her cousin in the cream  hat, who we all call Mum, loved to shop for granddaughters and grandsons. Combined they had their fair share...

I am sure I was on airplane mode.  Maybe???  Seems like the GPS radio worked anyway! 

When I came home, the photos were geotagged. So no more wondering where we were over the Caribbean. 

The flight attendant thought we were over Hisponola but we only got o...
