"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

… And delight in being here on earth * For one more moment * here on earth * to celabrate our tiny, tiny my-ness. — Czeslaw Milosz

Started a blog! This is it: my first post!
Hurray! Hurrah!

I managed to get all the steps done. Hurray for me, as I'm rather cyber-challenged!
Tried first at weblogger. There though, lots of things don't work.... may be my computer? I don't know!
So gave up there and came here to Blogger.

I've been following some blogs since around the middle of last year, when I finally figured out what they were! : ))))

Inspired by some new blogging-friends, here I am.
A blog to celebrate my part of  "our tiny, tiny my-ness".

My parents, my husband, my brother, my sister.
I am listening in a cafeteria at breakfast.
The women's voices rustle, fulfill themselves
In a ritual no doubt necessary.
I glance sidelong at their moving lips
And delight in being here on earth
For one more moment, with them, here on earth,
To celebrate our tiny, tiny my-ness.
