new posts

New posts at and blogs as well as LiveJournal and Facebook. Mostly about my recent ER trip; ran into unexpected breathing problems a couple days after I caught Al's cold and had to make an after-midnight run to the ER for a couple inhaler treatments to get the breathing back into a regular pattern. I now have my own inhaler set-up, which works quickly and effectively. Still have to ditch the cold, however, which is really a nasty one. Al's still got it, and he came down with it almost a week before I did.

Also, you might check my Facebook Page or my Website journal for my posts concerning Richard Bolles' What Color Is Your Parachute? (2012 ed.). I've just today gotten the ebook and have been spot-checking with reference to the TOC, and there's some great stuff on integrating your job search with Internet networking resources. You really need to know the "what" as well as the "where," "why," and "how," so at least drop by a bookstore and take a look at details before you set about implementing the project.

Authors Den

Does anyone use Authors Den, these days? I finally tracked down my log-in information and did a brief update on my author page, there.

The Blue Angels rehearsed this afternoon. We were so totally on their flight path! For the air show, Saturday and Sunday, it at least will be one time through the show each day.

New Facebook Page

I am separating my photo art and other creative endeavours from my business page (thewrittenword) on Facebook. When I get 25 "likes" on the "Liz Bennefeld, Artist" page, I will apply for a short link.

I have changed templates on one of my blogs and changed several header graphics to shots I took in Manhattan in 2007.

I have done far too few of the things I had planned to do, but I am quite ready to be back into the social networking activities, although not so heavily as I had been this last while. I am in the middle, now, of Fukuyama's Political Order and I just started volume 5 of the Harry Potter series, which I ordered a few months ago. . . . I should make a list of the books I have read so far this year.

Quiet Spaces Update

I have added a recipe for a tasty lunch salad for one to My Kitchen at Quiet Spaces. There's a link to it also from the corresponding blog post.

One of my summer squash plants (out of  the eight that I planted) has multiple flowers on it. I am hopeful! (Just have to beat the rabbits and the squirrels to the produce. (Mother has a very funny story about a tug of war between herself and a squirrel over the last zucchini. I wish I could tell it as well as she can.)

New: Photographic Prints has added a new, less expensive purchase option for Photo Art: photographic prints in four sizes, from 12x8 to (as much as) 30x20 inches. Here is "Rain with Hollyhocks."

Also, this would be a good opportunity to treat yourself to a photographic print of Anthony Jalandoni's "A Breath of Fresh Air." I certainly intend to! My favorite photo ever!

Another Productive Day

I posted my most recent three gallery photos on my Postcard Art blog. Got the sheets washed, the second half of the garden weeded, wildflower seeds sown, and managed to stay off of the social networking sites, today. I think I might just watch a movie tonight and then go to sleep early. As soon as I find the flash drive that contains all the photographs that I took today and look through them.

Updated links on Postcard Art, and shortened my autobiographical materials on

At my blog on I am returning to more of what I originally started with, and that's less trivia and more thinking. Hopefully! Plus more cross-linking to relevant posts and pages on my other blogs. Additionally, I have put new categories in place: Earlier Work, Recent Poetry and Recent Prose, with some items under each category.

For now my really sober stuff is being written elsewhere under a pseudonym. Think "Morning Pages"!
