Serendipitous Moments this summer

100_1622After a delightful afternoon of swimming, this motley crew filled my ’02 Honda Accord for the ride home. Windows all rolled down, radio turned to an oldies station, singing at the top of my lungs. Remember the driver gets to choose the station.

IMG_8768-001Friends gathered on and around the front porch on a blue moon night, listening to poetry readings, topped off by Kelle Jolly serenading us . Truly unexpected, a James Agee – Knoxville of 1915 moment.

These rascally blessings who, when called upon, say O.K. to a road trip with Nana Judy  that don’t turn out exactly as she thought it would. 100_1606Still don’t understand why they couldn’t include motion in the bodies.








And any time with Spunky.
        And anytime with Spunky.

I am a freelance writer and photographer who enjoys living close to the action in Knoxville, Tennessee. In the 1980s I created and published Zoo Connections, an international networking publication for non-animal zoo departments. Jobs over the years include working with the developmentally disabled, night front desk at a motel, assistant in development and membership at the NC Zoological Society, Customer Relations manager at Regal Entertainment Group, census enumerator, concessions at University of Tennessee, house cleaner, substitute teacher, sitter for children, houses, and pets. Freelance work at Knoxville News Sentinel and KnoxZine. Contributor to A Knoxville Christmas (2008,2007), and articles for the North Carolina Zoo website. Interested in anything except humorless people and politics. Enjoy reading, Scrabble, Catan, camping. I hold dear family (human and animal), friends, Kenya, Sunset Beach, NC and the Keys.
