When the Creative Urge Strikes: A Blog by Marcy Mary

I want you to know that I am really adjusting to the desert life. I now have the horrid local Canada geese whipped into shape—no squawking before 8:00 a.m. How did I do this?

The Second Peanut Butter Incident: A Post by Marcy Mary

Thwack! The newly opened jar of organic peanut butter bounced off the edge of the dining room table, then rolled across the chair and onto the floor, spewing its contents liberally on the tablecloth, the chair pad, and table leg. With a final flourish, it deposited a large, chunky puddle on the floor that looked […]
