  • Mukai 2nd Annual Haiku Festival Winners
    This year’s second annual Mukai Farm & Garden Haiku Festival on Vashon Island drew nearly 400 entries, mostly from Vashon Island but also from as far away as Poland and Croatia.  “We are very awed and grateful for the number and quality of haiku poems that came to us from throughout the world,” said Rita […]

  • Naked! Wild! And in Trouble Again.
    The root of the bracken fern is black and hard, ideal for a spear in our war in the field across Cove Road.  I’m not sure if it was our property or not, as our spring was further up the hill.  Every year after winter, my job was to clean out the dead rats, even […]

  • The Nuclear Family
    December, 1943: Mom and Dad were on their way to Dad’s first duty station in Galveston, Texas, when they took a little detour to Dalhart to have the ceremony performed. After all, there was a war on and if the Army had felt that the happy couple needed a honeymoon one would have been issued […]

    In the Eiffel Tower near the bank of the River Seine, in the summer of 1957, I ate my first artichoke ever. It came to the table with a little bowl of melted butter and fresh lemon juice. Delicious and exotic! Our artichokes and their dipping sauce cost our family a dollar a serving, an […]

  • Throw-away Culture
    While working at the most recent Fixit Café at the Eagles on Saturday, I was presented with a newer vacuum cleaner with a faulty filter casing.  The casing would come loose during operation and the unfiltered material would get ejected back into the room.  As I explored the innards, I came upon an outer filter […]

  • The Big Lie- Pt. II
    It has been what, almost six months now since we’ve had a self-serving liar in the White House? And yet, almost every time I hear mention of the term ‘the president’ being used in the news, it takes me a while to climb out of my bunker and unfurl from my emotional safe place and […]

  • The Sky and Eye
    “Lift that cigar higher and take a big draw!” I said to Seán as we sat out on his Indian Point deck, waiting for the late April ‘pink’ super-moon to rise.  His glowing cigar tip would look just like the moon images we saw as kids in homemade telescopes from ‘Things of Science’ or ‘Edmonds’ […]
