SEQUENTIALLY, NOT SIMULTANEOUSLY

Saturday, February 20, 2010      15 comments

I've been thinking quite a bit about a recent FRACTALMYTH blog on focus, the necessity of deciding what to do and moving ahead etc. etc. This seems to me to be a perpetual problem for women in particular. We women are told, unceasingly, ... Read more

Bird Story

Friday, January 15, 2010      19 comments

I've been thinking recently about how much I enjoy birds -- probably because of all the birds we have had at our feeders over the past couple of weeks. It's been great to see the gold finches in winter plumage at the window finch feeder; the w... Read more
