oo young for Medicare too old for anyone else to care; too rich for Medicaid, too poor to travel; I attempt gardening, hiking, biking, birding, canoeing, kayaking, and getting out of bed in the morning.
I have not watched TV regularly since 2006. (I also don’t own a microwave.) And, I have not read a newspaper since about 2004.
I’ve lived in (from North to South) New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida; moved a lot.
My other website is a much more sophisticated and intellectual gardening site: www.emilycompost.com. (My original website is about compost. Now this. Could there be a pattern emerging?)
So far this is morphing into a few essays.
Breast Cancer vs The Tornado – If it bleeds, it leads.
Breast Cancer Prevention – Prevention or Cure?
Breast Cancer Happiness – My take on “Pinkwashing”
(Im)Patient Registration – the most annoying part of the health care system?
Patient Names – who cares?
Health Insurance Bills – figure them out?
Nursing Home Noise – all quiet at the nursing home?
Remote Elder Care – Internet monitoring of nursing home.
Perked Coffee – you remember perked coffee, don’t you?
Restaurant Signals – restaurant diners must organize!
Dishwasher Awards – how do you load yours?
Thoreau and the Three Seasons on Cape Cod – No spring? What Thoreau really thought.
The Most Scenic Drive in America – Believe it!!
Emerson in a World of Twitter – penny wisdom.
Pumpkin Pie Recipe Poem – a recipe in a poem format. In time for the holidays!
And, a series of essays on a gardening project: Dirt.
I try to add an essay twice a week. We’ll see how it goes.
Brevity magazine has also published an essay of mine, “Abandoned.”
Another thing. I have a poetry site: Wretched Rhymes of young Whippersnappers. Visit anytime.
