My First Writing Course

It’s 10:28pm. I just got back from my first writing class. There were 16 or 17 of us taking the class. A few young ones, but most ranging from 40 to 60 years old. We went around the room introducing ourselves, one by one telling a snippet of the memoirs we came to write. Most of […]

Where’s my head on this most momentous time in history? The Mayans say today is the end of times as we know it, and the beginning of a new cycle of evolution for our planet. Well, that good. Las Vegas claims it’s a lucky time to get married. Well, forget that. A retired professor of […]

Vote NO!

Dear Friends, Tomorrow Georgians will vote for or against a change to our state’s constitution. Because of all the marketing efforts, many will be voting – for what they believe is – “School CHOICE.” Wrong. We have school choice now. You can apply your child to a charter school today or start one if so […]

July 4th: Scrambled Eggs & Grits

It’s the Fourth of July and I must do a quick post. I’m in a hurry, trying to get to the Peachtree Road Race with my sons. We’ll watch it for an hour or so, then wander over to the White House Restaurant, one of Atlanta’s oldest restaurants, for our customary 4th of July breakfast. […]

Wearing a coconut bra is good for the soul.

I’ve got so much in common with Jimmy Buffett. He and I grew up in the same town –  Mobile, Alabama. We both went to Auburn. I’ve been to most of the haunts he sings about. I share his love of the sunshine, the Gulf Coast, and of course, good seafood. That wonderful seaside ‘have-fun’ […]

All Riled Up Again

Lorda mercy. It seems by now I would’ve learned not to get so riled up about things. Seems I would have figured out that I can’t change all the things I think need changing in this world. “Take a break, Lisa, let the young mothers do it,” a close friend told me last week as […]

A New Lease on Life

Who’da known that signing on the dotted line would’ve give me a new lease on life. You see, I signed a lease today to stay in this little rental house I’ve been in for 6 months. The last few weeks have been very unsettling. The house went under contract to be sold. I was facing […]

Atlanta Beltline Mile 1: What’s Underneath?

In the 30 years I’ve lived in Atlanta, I’ve passed over this bridge dozens of times, never once considering what lies below. I can’t say where the bridge is because if the world knew, the residents here would lose their homes. As I walk past a man’s home, I can see through his front window, […]
