I'm -usually- a big reader. Always have been. Was such a bookworm as a kid, I'd sneak books under the covers and read with a flashlight. Got my wife back into reading when we got together. I'll get so into a book I'll forego sleep, not looking at the clock so as not to know … Continue reading No really, I can’t concentrate
Auld Lang Syne
Happy New Year! We had an exceedingly tough 2021, and yet we still have so much to be grateful for. Our country nearly fell into revolution and remains deeply, bitterly divided, and we, and the world, are seeing more and more far-right suspicion, racism, misogyny, homophobia, and hatred arise.

eulogy for mama
14-september 2019 As I sat by my mom’s hospital bed through her illness, I never expected the outcome would be laying her to rest and crafting her eulogy. Even as her damaged lungs struggled to process sufficient oxygen, she wanted to live, hoping she’d find joy amidst struggle. And, lost in dreams and dementia, between … Continue reading eulogy for mama
...and just like that, in the midst of an imaginary conversation, she uncovered a truth...
Who knew that one day, I'd strip myself bare and post my deepest meanderings for the public to shred, admire, whatever. I'm shaking, having just posted: WOW! It's official: I'm an #author! With a #copyright! https://mahalogy.com/musing/ #poems <runs for shelter> I dug out this little collection a few months ago and thought, why am I … Continue reading Poetess
