    six years on . . .

    by  • December 28, 2011 • Uncategorized • 1 Comment

    On Tuesday, December 27, 2005, I began writing this blog with these words: I’ve been staring at the “posting” screen for several days now trying to figure out how to join the world of food bloggers. Since I’m writing from a Mac and I don’t know much about HTML, I’m still not sure about...

    not with a bang, but with a whimper

    by  • December 28, 2010 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    The good news is the people at the Apple store rock and my MacBook will good as new. The only bad news is I won’t get it back until Friday, which means my blogging will have to wait until the new year. I will close out this one with much gratitude and keep good...

    marking time

    Yesterday this blog turned five years old — and my MacBook started acting up, which made it difficult to write. Such is life. Thanks for being a part of the conversation. Peace,Milton

    cleaning off my desk

    by  • August 10, 2009 • Uncategorized • 10 Comments

    I guess tonight might be the blogging equivalent of clearing off my desk. I have not written as regularly as I would like over the last couple of months for a variety of reasons, this week however, it was not for lack of ideas. Before the time gets away, I want to comment on...

    waking up

    by  • May 30, 2009 • Uncategorized • 5 Comments

    I’m about a week and a half into the resurrection of the ritual of writing my Morning Pages and I’m already feeling a shift. I’m getting used to getting up and, other than making the coffee, letting those three handwritten pages be the first thing I do. Those scribbles are starting to shake up...

    lenten journal: still in the temple

    by  • March 17, 2009 • Uncategorized • 3 Comments

    When I first started writing my blog a little over three years ago, one of the nicest surprises was the comment window. I am by nature a collaborator. I love the give and take of working with somebody, so the responses to my posts fed me and kept me writing. Over the past year...

    Christine’s blog at Abbey of the Arts has been one I’ve visited regularly for about as long as I have been reading blogs. A couple of weeks ago, she offered me to take part in one of her “sacred artists interviews” that she does from time to time. She posted it yesterday. Here’s the...

    Yesterday was our Schnauzer Lola’s seventh birthday and my brother’s forty-ninth. (I suppose that makes them the same age.) Today, my friend Doug is fifty years old. By coincidence, today also marks my four hundred and fiftieth post since beginning this blog on December 27, 2005. Eliot said we measure our life in coffee...

    meme, meme, meme — it’s all about meme

    by  • June 16, 2007 • Uncategorized • 7 Comments

    Since I started blogging about eighteen months ago I’ve passed on most of the memes that have come my way (OK, all of the memes) mostly because I use this forum to work on my writing. This week, however, I’ve been tagged several times for the “Eight Random Things” meme and it’s Saturday morning...

    sand in my eyes

    by  • June 6, 2007 • Uncategorized • 2 Comments

    Some days writing is pulling teeth. Other days, ideas come falling out like old toys from an overstuffed closet. Today is one of the latter. The trail of my thoughts goes something like this: I started at The Upward Way Press, which led me to this article on the weight of the Internet. Here’s...
