"There, that's better," says the old woman as she pulls me up from my knees and brushes the ice and snow from the hem of my coat.
"That was a nasty fall, you would best avoid the ice dear," she tells me.
"Avoid the ice," I answer, "yes it is best to avoid the ice."
The old woman speaks of the ice underfoot. I speak of the psychic ice that covers even the best of intentions, with a layer slick and slippery.
Do you ever talk to yourself? Are you kind? What does it sound like?
My grandmother was married at her parent's home, May of 1929. Within five months the world these newlyweds lived in dove head first into an economic depression. What they did with their lives remains a beacon of sanity in mine.
My daughter Luna married in August of 2001. In September the world these newlyweds lived in dove into war. What will they do with their lives?
There are two stories here. I have a bit part in both of them. Viva la vanity press.
I have been sinking my teeth into the technical once again. Curious about the RSS feed stuff, I decided that I would follow the pack and syndicate my site. I think I have succeeded. Fun to play with anyway. The icon that says XML, near the bottom of this page, will take you to my RSS feed file. [abanonded this idea1) Not so interesting in a web browser, but kinda neat when viewed in an RSS newsreader.
The RSS reader is a program installed on your computer, that lets you read the RSS feed files that some people have created for their web sites (mine is maggieturner.net/maggie.rss). You need to type in the URL for the specific RSS feed file, and it will go and pick up the info and display it for you. I am using a Mac RSS reader, NetNewsWire Lite. A Windows user could try FeedDemon. There are other ways to approach the RSS files, but others have explained this better than I ever could! RSS for Journalists is an informative article on the subject.
