Here’s What I’m Doing — “At The Moment”

I can't squat. ⠀

At least not well.⠀

I can do the perpendicular to the floor, parallel to your knees thing. But not the almost to the floor, heels on your bum thing.⠀

And, for me, it’s not just a gym issue.⠀

It’s a life issue.⠀

🖊️🗒️ NEW WRITING PIECE! 🖊️🗒️⠀

My beach is not the mile long swathe of powdery white sand you might find on a remote Caribbean island.⠀
Mine is a working beach. A beach close to town. In Massachusetts or Rhode Island.⠀

My beach has drizzling waves. That slurp along the shore. With tangles of black seaweed⠀

I can’t squat. I enjoy a good conversation with my dog Rosie. I like to sing to Queen in the car. I gravitate to carbohydrates. I’m politically and socially liberal. I never look at myself in the mirror with glasses on, so I never see how old I look. I park illegally a good deal of the time. I stay up late. I crave information. I go to lectures whenever possible. I’m self-deprecating. I like houses that are spare. My closet is messy. I love to laugh. I write so that you can get to know me. I don’t think it would happen otherwise.

I have a daughter who’s an artist, a husband who crafts wooden bowls, a spotted dog Rosie who sleeps under the covers at night, and a lab Emma who spends most of her time in the river.

I’m a baby boomer, live most of the year in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, and part of the year in Sun Valley, Idaho where I raised my kids.

I have four beloved stepchildren with four totally cool partners and six perfect grandchildren.

And I love to write.

For me, it’s the most fun I can have.

I write about what I see….how I feel….what I think we should talk about.

I’ve done humor columns and talk radio shows. And in the last seven years have done three one-women plays. One on my life, “From Where I Sit”. One on aging, “Butter to the Edges”. And one covering all the things we never talk about, “There Are Things I Didn’t Tell You”. I decided to do a website to put my work out to a wider audience. But more importantly I thought it would discipline me to do weekly blogs. Sort of like the column I used to do.

So here we go. I’ve included videos of my shows as well as scripts from those shows. A cross-section of writings I’ve done covering everything from wiping my dog down with hand sanitizer… to how I really feel about aging. I’ve included my podcasts and an “In the Moment” section which features my posts.

Drop me a line when you have a chance. I’d love to know you’re out there.

Mary

Dear lily,⠀⠀

The world is not supposed to be like this.⠀⠀

The skies are supposed to be an unobstructed blue. Wild strawberries are supposed to cover the fields. Dogs are supposed to smile.⠀⠀

Someone is not to die every forty-nine seconds of a disease we hardly understand and had not heard of a few short months ago. . .⠀⠀

▪️ participate willingly in a zoom dance party
▪️ be on a recipe chain letter for my favorite quarantine dishes

Do you feel fragile? ⠀
I feel fragile.⠀

Fragile⠀

Not a complimentary word.⠀

Women for centuries have been accused of being fragile.⠀

Having vapors. Waiting for the guy on the white horse. Needing to be kissed awake after eating the dreaded apple.⠀

But I’m ok with it.⠀
