I've kept a detailed journal on my computer for many years, and I'm glad the practice is catching on, but, sorry, I will never refer to it as "journaling."

My daughter returned from a business trip to find this potter wasp's nest on her car antenna--and now she's driving around with it in place. A true warrior against the insect apocalypse!

Saw the world-class jazz pianist Helen Sung perform last night at a mostly empty club, sadly exemplifying the old joke, "What's the difference between a jazz musician & a large pizza? The pizza can feed a family of four." Aargh!

How is this possible, with the draconian anti-abortion bills being signed into law in state after state?

Heretofore unbeknownst to all but a few lucky recipients, Doris Day played a significant role in this birthday rebus I put together for friends.

The nation needs Bill de Blasio's presidential bid the way New York City needs another pencil tower for billionaires.

Happy Mother's Day one and all species! A special shout-out to the very large mother robin now nesting over my front door. May your chicks survive & thrive, and may you never take a dump on my head.

I have trouble accepting that the same week a major UN report describes in the starkest possible terms the "unprecedented" collapse of the natural world, our secretary of state celebrates the loss of Arctic sea ice.

Cliché Today: Because--. eg., Because science. Because evolution. Because I don't feel like writing a complete sentence that expresses what I'm trying to say and this seems like a hip shortcut with built-in subtext.

It's too jargony for everyday use, but I just learned a term I love: polytocous, which means "producing more than one egg or young at a time." The best part is, with its stress on the second syllable, it sounds like either a political act or a Roman emperor.
