A Glimpse of the Past

As you know, I’ve been weathering some pretty strong storms lately. In taking a moment to look back at my blogging repertoire, I realized I’ve been blah blah blah-ing for quite a long time.

I came across See What You Have Missed written way back in 2012, referring to blogs that I had written way before that. Can You Imagine? So I thought — why not?

Here is the blog from 10 years ago — and their links. Need some humor? Be my guest. Have fun. I know I did. 

Love you all.  


See What You Have Missed!


I know the winter doldrums are upon us, yet spring is flirting from across the banquet hall filled with diners. We can’t quite see her yet, but I noticed one extra sparkle on the horizon, so she’s on her way.  Before the mad rush of her annual appearance scatters us to the four winds as we open windows, walk a little more, spring clean, play fetch with our dogs, and get more serious about our eating habits, I thought I’d bring a few of my ditties to the forefront (in case you need to apply one to your upcoming Spring Pledge):

To Dream or Not to Dream: That is the Question — Turn your restlessness into meaningful nonsense. Just don’t take yourself too literally.


Dancing in a Too Tight Tutu — You are never too old for anything. What are you waiting for?


I Didn’t Know I Spoke Chinese — The learning/language gap between generations (this was my kids…now its my grandkids)


On Base of Bony Orbit —  Fun Fun Fun words, phrases, and body parts


Viva Las Vegas! — Age is a state of mind. And body.



Sex — What is it and Where Did it Go? — kinda self-explanatory


I Can’t Believe I Believed That — disputing a few of life’s mysteries



Please take a few minutes to see where we’ve been. Let me know if you have any favorites, any ideas.  And hold on, for the future is full of promise — and blogs!

  1. I am blessed to have thoughts from people like you. I don’t really think a blog like mine is a place to talk about personal tragedies, yet sometimes the most minute share brings in the biggest friendships. Thank you so much. Really.

  2. I think the flow of Chinese is a wonderful dance on the senses. How we could have evolved from Chinese to English to Italian to Malay is a wonderful miracle, isn’t it? Treasure your heritage! My grandparents on my dad’s side only spoke Polish. So I know only a few phrases. And lots of food words!


  3. Lol I love your writing voice in the Didn’t Know I Spoke Chinese post, but also, I’ve grown up in a home where we spoke multiple languages due to actual necessity—my grandmother only spoke Chinese, while my parents grew up to an English education, and we live in Malaysia so my dad spoke Malay to my grandmother.

    Anyway, thanks for these lovely posts!
