Philadelphia witch

Today is Halloween. Bah Humbug (oh wait, wrong holiday). We live in an apartment and both our sons are grown and flown so Halloween is basically a “nothing burger” around here. However, the Zentangle Diva challenge this week is to compose something to represent fall or Halloween. In order to avoid having to make a […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #232 Betweed

This week, guest Zentangle Diva, Holly Atwater, challenged us to listen to an audio Zentangle meditation and to produce a tile created without any preconception about what the tangles are supposed to look like; in other words, to truly embrace the Zentangle method of creating art “one stroke at a time”.

Zentangle Inspired Art

[This post was revised on April 23, 2015 after I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT)] My name is Jane Doe Suzanne and I’m a tangle addict. Apparently, I’m also a pusher as several friends are now also tangle addicts. (You know who you are.) The thing is, I don’t really want to be cured of […]

Mr. Excitement and I enjoy leaving the “driving” to a cruise ship captain on occasion, but we have never taken a cruise that departed from a European port.

These days, a disability or illness need not spell the death knell for indulging our wanderlust. Obviously, for us Boomeresque types, before booking any adventure activity, it’s highly advisable to speak with one’s physician. […]

A Shoobie View of Brigantine Beach, New Jersey

June 25, 2013 41 comments

Brigantine, New Jersey beach scene.

(Updated August 28, 2016). Philadelphians don’t go to the beach. We go “down the shore”—or if we are speaking really fast or have over-imbibed, “down a shore”.

August 30, 2012 77 comments

My husband and I came by our predilections for working twelve hours a day honestly.  We’re Baby Boomers and must feel some vestigial responsibility to atone for our generation’s earlier excesses with sex, drugs and rock and roll.  Given our work schedules, it was a no-brainer that our two sons would be the only mammals […]

Life Saving Boat on Brigantine Beach

When Philadelphians talk about going “down tha’ shore”, they mean any of the beach towns from the southern tip of New Jersey (Cape May) north through Long Beach Island.  Any further north than that and you run the risk of entering a Seven Eleven and running into people wearing New York Giants and Yankees caps […]
