Back in the days before streaming TV, people were concerned mostly with mammoths: how to find them, how to stalk them, how to kill them, and how to consume them. People, being people, developed some pretty strong opinions about the entire process. Had you asked one of those people why they arrived at the conclusions […]

(Note to Loyal Readers: Life in the Boomer Lane fully intended to post something today that had absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump. But, when she started to type, the exact opposite occurred. She apologizes and promises that, after today’s post, she will take a break from such odious pursuits.) It’s no secret that […]

African Americans have endured what few people have. Ancestors were ripped away from the civilizations that created and nurtured them. Centuries later, traditions and the anchors people had to those who came before have been lost. The country that forced African Americans here didn’t want them after freedom was grudgingly given. They became a mystery […]

Love in the Time of Coronavirus

They say that love conquers all. Life in the Boomer Lane doesn’t know who “they” are, but she suspects that the word “love” should, instead, have been “intention.” It would have solved a lot of problems over the centuries if people had intention, regarding relationship.

Life in the Boomer Lane pulled out of a parking lot last week, onto a street at a busy intersection. She was unable to totally straighten her car as she entered the street, so it was at a slight angle. An ambulace came down the street in the opposite direction, and suddenly, a car appeared […]

This week, Life in the Boomer Lane dreamt that she was with Prince Charles, shortly after Diana’s death. Prince Charles was represented in the dream by the persona of a close friend of LBL.

Life in the Boomer Lane has just returned from Tangier, in Northern Morocco. Now Husband spent part of his youth there and wanted to visit the high school he attended,  the store where he purchased individual cigarettes as a 14-year-old, and the marble columns in front of one particular building, in which his name had […]

Last week, Life in the Boomer Lane hosted a neighborhood group whose goal is quite simple: dramatically change the world in as short a time as possible.  After the meeting was over and most people had gone, LBL noticed a swell-looking laptop that someone had left behind. She asked the group coordinator to put something […]
