Chess…a poem

Tabby, Cat, Chess, Game, Strategy, Pet

had no idea
that when he rescued
from the shelter
she would
beat him in chess
every time
they played

Years ago, I made up a feminist game called, SHEROS…I just came across the photographs. It was fun. 3 pictures


This is an ad in a magazine for a BOARD GAME, for PRIDE AND PREJUDICE…I couldn’t believe it. LOL But for all you Jane Austen fans…have at it.


Love is a game…sometimes you win…sometimes you don’t…but life’s a game, so you may as well play, because if you win…well, it’s a BIG win.

Tic Tac Toe, Love, Heart, Play


Recreation Court Child School Drawing Game

Boys don’t play hopscotch.  It’s too complicated and mystic.  There are no holes into which a ball will fit, no sticks, bats, clubs, nothing to throw, beat or kick.  There is no physical contact.

Hopscotch takes a different kind of knowing and finesse.   There is no gear, no costumes or uniforms.  You don’t need playing fields or arenas.  A small piece of chalk and pebble is all you need to begin.  You can play anywhere you can draw the outline.

Hopscotch is elastic and while the rules stay the same, the meanings of the game changes, according to the girls who are playing.

Hopscotch includes a philosophy of balance, concentration, determination and magick.   It’s the magick part that’s a secret.

For more about boys and hopscotch…Eddie Izzard does a fabulous riff on it.  If you’re interested.
