  2. Kids really do turn things upside down. Everything from eating habits to self-talk change, when you realize what they might model. Nothing habitual is left unexamined, which really is like getting a second chance or starting over as an adult.

  3. You’re in amazing company…Wallace Stevens, Ted Kooser…wrote at dawn before their ‘real’ day-life began. I love your sketch. Got a refrigerator? Leave a link on my Illumination post. 🙂 And BTW, it’s all gravy.

  4. This is a real gutsy post. Good for you for opening up like this. Life gets in the way of our dreams at times. I resemble that remark myself. I am just fortunate I am still write and think for the most part after a brain tumor and a stroke. Miracles do happen. You are doing a great thing.

  9. Was your Smith-Corona brown? Pretty sure I learned to type on that in high school. Yep…I miss the SATISFACTION that comes with the WACK when you get to the end of a line of typing! But I don’t miss the white-out all that much! Glad you get in touch with your inner joy by writing before going to work!

    • Hi Liz – I had the other model Smith-Corona (the green one). That lovely shade of green you only see in the early 70s, that’s a kind of pistachio. Beats the heck out of those electric typewriters, if you ever used one of those…I had an IBM selectric too, but it smelled weird and got hot (and stuttered). Thank you for stopping by my blog!
