Remembrance of an Era

February 26, 2011

My brother recently posted about the concert he attended in Florida. Because he mentions that it was more about his sister’s era (that’s me!) I thought I would share it with you. Of course, watching the video clips he chose certainly did bring back a lot of memories. Since many of you don’t read my […]

After the Rain

June 28, 2010

  My family loved to backpack in the high Sierras. One year, after a refreshing afternoon rain, my youngest child, about seven at the time, looked down at his feet and picked up something shiny. It was a perfectly formed arrowhead of black obsidian. Evidently the rain had washed it out from an ancient hiding […]

Lothlorién

February 27, 2010

  Two years ago, before I started this current blog, I created another blog that was designed to talk about my life as a sailboat live-aboard. That blog didn’t last long, because it was during those few weeks of its existence that I came up with the idea for “Lava to Lilikoi.” So from time […]

  I promise this will be the last post about the Stanford Campus, but there were so many beautiful sights there that I’m afraid I got carried away. For those of you who have never seen the campus, this will be something new. If you haven’t been there in a while, it will be a […]

The Burghers of Calais

August 29, 2009

  Two weeks ago, I left you with a tease about a future post on the Stanford sculptures and the photo above. Today I will explain more about these sculptures. I was totally intrigued with them, but I have to admit I wasn’t familiar with the entire story behind them. Blogging is so educational! These […]

A Trip Around the Stanford Quad

August 15, 2009

  It seems that most large universities, as well as some smaller ones, have a “quad.” When I was a campus minister at University of Arizona, there was a massive quad where students and faculty hung out, played Frisbee, studied, slept, nuzzled with someone special, or whatever else they could find to do.

San Mateo in Bloom

ROSES ON A PICKET FENCE   I hope you aren’t sick and tired of seeing photos out of California. Even though I lived there for many years, I had forgotten how brilliant the flowers could be. Part of the time I was there for my May-June visit, I stayed with friends who live in San […]

Tiptoe through the…Sweet Peas?

July 18, 2009

  I must have gotten to the market on California Avenue in Palo Alto too late in the season to see tulips, but there were plenty of other flowers to enjoy! The sweet aroma of huge bunches of sweet peas was almost overpowering. These in the above photo gave my room a wonderful ambience. Other […]

July 11, 2009

CALIFORNIA AVENUE MARKET   Two weeks ago, I wrote about the fruits at the California Avenue Farmers’ Market in Palo Alto. The fruits and veggies were intermingled with flowers and other products, which I’ll show you next week. This week it’s time for your veggies. Across the way from Joanie’s Café where we ate a […]
