Speaking FluentlyA Story Of Adaptation And Adjustment.  A Continuing Journey. Even though I am a native of this country as were my parents and each of my grandparents, I still struggle with many parts of the English language.  That said, I wish I could speak another language fluently but that has...
 Something About Quotes. . . I have long enjoyed quotes.  Reading them.  Being inspired by them.  Learning from them.  Wondering about them.  Nodding my head with them.  Disagreeing at times too.   On ActiveRain, I like quotes as they take center stage or are included as part of a post.  They wil...
 And Pondering Pockets. . . I have become fairly familiar with pockets.  Definitely not an expert but familiar.  The utility of them is well-known but their significance beyond the inside world where one might usually find them may not be so obvious.   Have you ever heard of deep pockets?  It’s a...

Separation Anxiety Of SortsAnother Pondering Adventure I have previously shared on these pages that I grew up in the shadow of Disneyland.  I knew The Magic Kingdom was a special place but I didn't "get" it in the same way as my contemporaries or the relatives who flocked to visit us. As time pas...
Said And Done You have probably heard it.  Perhaps even said the phrase in passing.  But when something is said(or otherwise communicated) - is it really finished?   I have been thinking of closure and my mind wanders.  As usual my thoughts go in many directions. Yet they are not totally directio...
