• Robin commented on the post, complexity 3 years, 8 months ago

    My job is to break down the complexity in this life and reduce things to their simple essence. Divide each problem and each task into smaller steps making them easier to
    tackle and conquer. We admire complexity in patterns and people but it certainly does not make our lives smoother.

    You wouldn’t think I would like bluegrass music but sometimes I do like country music because the songs tell a story.

  • Robin commented on the post, intrigue 3 years, 8 months ago

    What happened to the world of intrigue and mystery.
    Today everything is transparent–tell-all, nothing hidden.
    Wasn’t it more exciting when something was left to the imagination?

    after I exercise, I feel ravenous. I could eat everything in sight but I try for protein, cheese or peanut buttress. Being ravenous lets you know that you are alive and kicking!

  • Robin commented on the post, welt 3 years, 8 months ago

    A welt rose on her arm where she smashed it against the wall while she was trying to put together her new bookcase. She was determined to be independent even if it killed her and from her current experiences with hammer, drill and nails, it might
    actually kill her.

    I remember the blue glass Seltzer bottles in my grandparents’ Bronx kitchen.
    I loved the hissing sound the squirting of the seltzer made. each month, the seltzer man came to take the empties and bring new ones, a little slice of life.

    In art class, I designed a farm poster complete with a silo.

    I did, after all, meet you.

    I don’t have sons but if I did I would raise them as strong sensitive people, close to family and true to their hearts. I would also raise them to respect and love women.

    I used to be the kind of girl who would captivate men with my hair, my eyes, my walk.
    it was a great feeling and to some extent, I believe I still have that power

  • Robin commented on the post, vapor 3 years, 10 months ago

    Childhood is the smell of Vick’s vapor rub–that minty sharp aroma which meant that your mother was taking care of you and making you better. You inhaled Vick’s and you inhaled love.

  • Robin commented on the post, bloomed 3 years, 10 months ago

    She bloomed in junior high school and my mother would say,
    That’s too early. What will happen to her later on? there will be no worlds left to conquer. I didn’t quite understand that when I looked at the girl with her swirling hair and pouty mouth but as the years went by, it became evident.

    One dot at a time. Dot by dot.

    I stapled together all my important letters–
    the ones you sent years ago. Don’t know why I did that
    since I was planning to burn them. But at the last minute
    I decided to keep them.

  • Robin commented on the post, irreverent 3 years, 10 months ago

    My father was irreverent, always challenging the norm with his funny comments.
    As a kid, I would feel embarrassed sometimes by his unorthodox statements but now
    I realize he was right to challenge and criticize. He saw more than we did.
