Born At Age 40.

  If I were to be locked up for at least three months, I'd like to read the autobiographies of Sonia Sotomayor, Angela Davis, and Condoleeza Rice, then, A Farewell To Arms, the works of Heidegger regarding being-in-the-world in a technological age, and the Baghavad-Gita. That'd help construct a conceptual framework towards crafting an idea. I don't want … Continue reading Born At Age 40.

The Notebook

I thought the pile of administrative trash was a touch too heavy... An interesting habit of mine when I'm in the hospital is to collect magazine pages. It seems I had ripped apart an Italian Vogue magazine in this bundle before me, the bundle I've been avoiding since I came home March 16th. It is … Continue reading The Notebook

For You, Lady Graduate (a poem)

Niece #2 graduated yesterday, with much relief and gratitude. She's my namesake and shares my spirit. For her graduation package, I added an impromptu poem. It literally roused me from deep sleep days before mailing her gifts, the words, "Go on little princess, put on your crown..." Attached is the modified version. The original you'll … Continue reading For You, Lady Graduate (a poem)

Fred is Dead

(I wrote this in reflection of my former neighbor's shocking and untimely death. At first I wasn't going to post, but I have to honor the guy who, as complicated our relationship was, inspired my artistry on several occasions. I pour one out for you, buddy.) "I bet you got that tattoo long time ago, … Continue reading Fred is Dead

Operation: Falcon Crest

Three yellow butterflies fluttered before me, playfully twisting in the warm morning gust accentuating this morning's walk. Sweat curtained my face way before hitting the mile marker; what is this?? This time last year, a decent chill to temper the swamp, but in 2015, I still have boob sweat! Walk is over and it's time … Continue reading Operation: Falcon Crest

Renewed! After Much Procrastination…

Days before the cut off, I finally get around to salvaging vonsimeon.com! I tell ya, September was way too distracting to pay attention to WordPress's many reminder emails. I blame the onslaught of pumpkin spice everything. Still technologically determined, as repairs to my truck superceded buying a new notebook. I checked out a place in … Continue reading Renewed! After Much Procrastination…

Von And The Fixer-Uppers

I did tell a long distance friend once that if my blog goes more than 3 weeks without a post, it's a sure sign I'm dead. 😀 Haven't been able to keep my regular writing schedule due to my laptop failing. I have enough motherboard life to collect my master files.  Pics I don't worry … Continue reading Von And The Fixer-Uppers

The Puppy Is A Poet

My book options are either a rich girl with predictable life problems or a rumpled copy of a vampire story. Like Suzanne on Orange Is The New Black, I feel, “Vampires are derivative," so I stick with the somehow New York Times Bestseller paperback. There's literally nothing to do between med checks, so I designed … Continue reading The Puppy Is A Poet

Send Me An Angel (rev2)

My friends and I believe I met an angel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Here’s the story... We're at the Center of The Universe! The festival, that is, although the psilocybin and cannabinoids and diazapam coursing through my body makes me feel as if I'm standing on the sun. Arms swinging gaily, feet bee-bopping as my team … Continue reading Send Me An Angel (rev2)
