3 Sisters

Posted in Writers & Writing with tags on February 7, 2018 by kozmicdogz


My mother is the oldest of 3 sisters whose parents who were born in Sicily and immigrated to the US in the early part of the 20th Century. The family settled in Washington, DC not far from the capitol.

As young girls the 3 sisters, one in a stroller, would walk from their home on B Street in NE Washington, DC across Stanton Park, and go to the Stanton Theater. 10 cents each to see the cowboy movies and the other serials which were playing Saturday mornings.

The middle sister Rose passed away this week and now there are only 2 sisters. Sisters who shared a bedroom, shared a wedding dress, and shared a life together with their husbands and children. Now they are old and hanging on to each other, looking back on lives well lived, and wondering where all the time has gone.

John Waters took the stage of the 1928 Byrd Theatre shortly after 8pm and did not stop talking and pacing for almost two hours. Waters shared his love and hate relationship with Christmas, christmas presents, mangers, film, music, and our modern society. Waters said he was tired of gays coming out and he was going to come in again. He discussed some new projects and his disdain for old boring people and how hard it was to be an outlaw these days.

Waters performed to a packed audience of adoring fans. The December 20, 2017 was the 17th stop for Waters on his 18 stop Christmas tour. Waters also performed at the Byrd Theatre in 2015.

3:00 am
Dreams of times that never came to pass
Fortunately
But familiar folk all around
Keeping me up
Worrying me just the same
Not real
Thank god.

This is the ship which my father took from the US to Australia in February 1942. He would not return home until May 1945.

The SS Malolo was built in 1927 as a luxury liner which sailed from San Francisco to LA to Honolulu. It was pressed into service as a troop transport ship from 1942 to 1946.

Pumpkin Patch

Timeless pumpkin patch.
Pickin’
sortin’
Hot in the sun,
cool in the shade.
Miles from home
    transported to another

      time.

October!
