    I wondered daily. All the time. So much of my time spent wondering. Daydreaming. Thinking of things not in the here and now and present – past, future, any time but now. Wondering is healthy, generally speaking. It means an open mind is in there, one that wondered.

    cheap. am I cheap? I think I’m frugal not cheap. What is cheap as opposed to frugal? Would you shell out money for something no matter the cost if it will bring some happiness to someone’s life? I will. No questions asked. No second thought. But I will be thrifty with me.

    tables multiplication tables. my parents made me learn them all from 1 to 9 by the time I was seven years old. I had to memorize them and recite them back to them. Funny this was one of few things they were militant about. It did help. The basic skill that covered me in math.

    mangos are a summer fruit. i tease my co-worker about bringing mangos to work and keeping them on his desk, he never seems to get them at the right level of ripeness. when I was young my dad used to ripen mangos by sticking them in the rice sack, amidst the grains. I don’t remember […]

    cards I played cards in university. Hearts. That was the popular game. We were wild about it. Tournaments and everything. I tried to teach a former friend but she whined and made fun of it. Never played with her again. Though not because of that. I still like that game. We called the queen of […]

    tangled up together. we are all entangled. everyone I’ve met, everyone I’ve cared about, or don’t care about anymore. Entangled. Indelible mark made. Good thing or bad thing – or just something to deal with.

    wool is scratchy and stiff and feels uncomfortable and hot unless you get the really good stuff like merino wool. I bought my mom a long underwear set made of the thinnest merino wool. I wouldn’t answer when she asked how much it cost ($200) because she would faint. I must try get along with […]
