I Think I’m Awake, Now…

Posted by Les Becker on March 16, 2009 in Blog-Family, Real Life |

Hiding…© Kyla BeckerTaken March 14, 2009 with Canon PowerShot A550 Okay, so maybe it hasn’t been “hiding”, so much, as that I’ve been “doing”. Maybe, it’s been more like hibernating. I’ve been working and sleeping and getting up long enough to go to work and not much of anything else since the New Year rolled […]

Sometimes, Wishing is Enough…

Posted by Les Becker on November 27, 2008 in J.O.B., Zenishness... |

My boss called me today. Asked me to come in to work to “have a little talk.” Scared the shit out of me. I LOVE my job. I want to keep my job. The only thing I don’t like about my job is my seeming inability to negotiate gracefully between day shifts and night shifts, […]

He Saw Dead People…

Posted by Les Becker on September 27, 2008 in Other People's Stories... |

So, after a lovely Tilapia dinner, The Cook – oops – Kitchen Manager – no, make that Soon-To-Be-Revealed Self-Named Story-Teller, told me his earliest memory. It was a memory that’s haunted him his whole life (and he’s even older than me, so you know that’s a whole lotta life to be haunted), and I really […]

The What’th of September…

Posted by Les Becker on September 22, 2008 in Photography, Real Life, Wasted Time... |

Ruby needed to know the date the other day, and that’s how she asked it: “This is the what’th of September…?” It struck me as a good title for a blog post because it’s felt like the “what’th of September” for pretty much the entire month. The photo is fairly symbolic for my September, as […]

Pink Fantasy…

Posted by Les Becker on April 29, 2008 in Real Life, Zenishness... |

Pink FantasyTaken February 22, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m right impressed with myself over this picture. I seriously doubt I’ll get another shot even half this good for the rest of the year. I kind of hope I don’t – I’m really proud of this one. I want to blow it up to about […]

Ruby Strikes Again…

Posted by Les Becker on June 13, 2007 in The Landlady |

…strikes me funny that is. Another little collection from “The Landlady”. “She still hasn’t forgiven me for that time I hit her over the head with a shovel.” “I was black and blue from all the pokin’ around.” (About a nurse drawing blood…) “I had the stupidest dream. It was Christmas, and all these dead […]

In Pursuit of a Dream… Take 2

Posted by Les Becker on April 27, 2007 in Artsy Fartsy, Little Bits of Stupid, Projects, The Father Chronicles |

I have been forcibly “de-funkified”. I really should thank Carol for doing it with her nasty comments (and even nastier private emails), but I’m not quite ready to do that, because, truthfully, I don’t think I’m quite ready to be “de-funkified” at all. But she’s right. Wallowing in it, publicly or privately, only makes things […]
