Quiche to me is like calculus to a 2nd grader.

My Hero

JP:  You're my hero for today.
CL:  I am?
JP:  Yes, because you faced great challenges, obstacles and setbacks and did not surrender.


Two Poems

Ki no Tsurayuki

Hito wa isa
Kokoro mo shirazu

Furusato wa
Hana zo mukashi no
Ka ni nioi keru

The depths of the hearts
Of humankind cannot be known.
But in my birthplace
The plum blossoms smell the same
As in the years gone by.

On the hill which is seen from my home,
I gather warabi or bracken
which my husband likes.

It's fun to go early in the morning just after a rain
when the wild plants have sprung up like mushrooms.

You are a rare and exotic creature; you shouldn't hide behind a boring URL.

My Treasure


JM 3/19/2007

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my motherís womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
— Psalm 139:13-14
