Like that chicken, we keep crossing the road at, defiant to the last! This site is about Time – it

always wins, we always lose….and Entropy the progressive

running down of all systems (just to show you we know

SOMETHING about Physics)….and Choice. We can choose to let

life grind us down, or we can strive to find what will pick us up,

dust us down, enlarge our vision, put a smile on our faces.

Curved Yellow Fruit

Someone can't spell 'banana'

is the site to visit when you need a bit of inspiration, a laugh, some consolation when life has hit you hard, some perspective when a particular issue is chewing at you and will not let you go.

Whether Youth, Mid-Life, or Genteel Decline ( I prefer to call it Post-Career life, myself!) is your stage, you will find support and friendship here.


As it grows and develops, the site will feature Guest writers with interesting perspectives to offer on contemporary issues. It is also a place for reflecting on what life has meant, means now, and continues to mean. We are not reductionists here. We believe that the “stormy journey of the soul” serves a higher purpose than we can ever discern. We are comfortable with Mystery. We do not think we have many answers – but we sure have plenty of questions! Do drop by and leave us a comment. We want to share experiences with our readers.
