My parents in the backyard


I think that's a fluffy little keeshond puppy in my dad's lap...


Bliful & I in the backyard


What an incredibly patient cat.

Earliest Known Poem 1969


My mother wrote down the song/poem I was singing to myself at age four and pinned it up in our hallway. [That evidence of early creativity and my family's support for it remained in view there for 30 years]

I thought I planned
A magic wand,
A wand, a wand, a magic wand
But what I wanted was a dawn
But they cannot know when
Because they're not my friends.
The little ones run from side to side
Lie down here, lie down there,
And where, where, where.
Then it is the end.
Then I said I'll go to bed.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
