Thank Heaven for Paris   Leave a comment

I had to meet the photographer in Paris — but the only taxis were these vintage hacks.  But it was a fun ride!

Each time I see a little girl
Of five or six or seven
I can’t resist a joyous urge
To smile and say

Thank heaven for little girls
For little girls get
Bigger every day

Movie Night   2 comments

Jem and Diana arrived on board the starbase at my invitation for a girls’ night yesterday, full of questions over my call to them.  In reply, I showed them up to the station’s upper level in the “quarters” sector, and through a roundel door into the answer.  “Behold, mesdames.”

Both my friends glanced around, until they lit on the screen and control panel.  “A holodeck?” Jem asked.

Are We Blue   Leave a comment

Am I blue?
Am I blue?
Ain’t these tears in my eyes
Tellin’ you?

The Royal Ladies of the Universe   Leave a comment

It’s been a busy time for all four of us, between our various RL jobs, activities and families; but especially for me.  You see, I just semi-retired … I’ve taken up new, easier occupations, but retired completely from my retail job.  Another Christmas shopping season like the last would have been soul-crunching, if not crushing.  And I’m not really up to the physical demands of retail in many ways, what with my RL age.  (We won’t go into details!)

But also, the last child will be leaving the nest to enter college in the fall — he graduates from high school next week — and that would mean, if I were scheduled for a night shift, that the husband would come home to a dark house after a long shift at the office.  After over 12 years of going through this, that’s not any good.  Last year, I asked if there were a chance of getting placed permanently on morning (opening) shift at all, and informed that wasn’t possible.  That, plus various changes at several levels in the company, made me feel it was time to “turn in my papers.”

And so, with that, it’s time to celebrate!  A change of clothes, a change of skin … hell, even a change of hair … and then sweet-talking the other ladies to do it with me.

In the Hamptons   Leave a comment

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,

“Public Greensward”   Leave a comment

“The complete separation of toil and leisure has given Ardana this perfectly balanced social system ….”

Droxine (Diana Ewing), Star Trek (original series), “The Cloud Minders”

“Those who receive the rewards are totally separated from those who shoulder the burdens ….”

Spock, same episode

“The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system.”

The woman reflected on those words, written on a stone plaque near the entrance, as she strolled along the pathways of the park.  The thing, of course, was that there was much more space available in the 19th Century than in the 32nd.  This small “park” was contained inside a floating force bubble, and was not accessible to the groundlings who “lived” beneath the sky towers.  The woman shuddered at that memory; she had seen the ground levels in the past ….

Now why did that give her a cautionary twinge, as if she could just perceive the makings of a great catastrophe in the future …?  No, there was nothing to worry about; better to enjoy life to the fullest, and the future would deal with itself.

While, thousands of meters beneath her on the surface streets, the future simmered and roiled … and waited ….
