The Incentive of Eddie Lacy

POSTED ON June 12, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Let me begin by saying that I like running back Eddie Lacy and I’m glad that he’s come on board with the Seahawks. To the uninitiated, Eddie is a former Green Bay Packer. He played four seasons with the team, going to the Pro Bowl his rookie year. He was also named the 2013 Rookie ... Read More

Driving 55

POSTED ON June 06, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 10 Comments
 

Today is my 55th birthday. The Sammy Hagar tune “I Can’t Drive 55” keeps running through my head. It occurs to me that someday my kids will take my car keys away from me. After all, I am creeping closer to that golden age. I just hope to God that when they do, it’s the ... Read More

Nothing & Everything

POSTED ON May 30, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 5 Comments
 

Since the inauguration, I’ve been experiencing an uncharacteristic inertia. A malaise has insinuated itself into my psyche, and my days are often void of the requisite energy to write or practice.  As such, my productivity has tanked to a troubling low. This feels different than depression. Still, I’m not exactly sure what’s up. I’m curious ... Read More

Play Safe Seattle

Over the past year, there has been a 20% increase in hate crimes in major metropolitan areas across the United States. These incidents – ranging from malicious harassment and property damage to direct violence – are motivated by biases against the victims based on race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and gender identity and disability. Many ... Read More

FAILURE

POSTED ON March 14, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 6 Comments
 

So today I made a list of all the failures I’ve had over the past ten or so years. Yeah, I know. It’s not something a person would normally want to do. It’s a tad masochistic. (“Ya think?” yells the peanut gallery that sits in the back row of my brain.) But sometimes a chick ... Read More

Summoning Lysistrata

  Dear Melania Trump, Elaine Chao, Janna Ryan and other Wives of the GOP, Although we reside on different planets in separate universes, I’m writing this as a fellow human sister and with the faith that you are fundamentally good women.  I’m confident that somewhere in the sacred depths of your beautiful hearts, you know ...

tiny silver Buddha, thumbs up

On New Year’s Eve, I received a package from my sister Mary.  It contained a tiny silver Buddha, smiling delightfully, thumbs-up. According to the box, his name is Syd.  The card that came with him said, “Silver opens the mind and lights the way forward. It is reflection, insight and wisdom.”  I held the tiny ... Read More

When Things Get Bleak

POSTED ON December 28, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 2 Comments
 

Things are rather heavy these days. There’s a pall draping our collective psyche. I can see and feel it everywhere: on social media, in the weary faces of both loved ones and strangers, in the low vibration that moans just beneath the surface of everything. We’re despondent still over a looming Trump presidency and all ... Read More

So Now What?

POSTED ON November 28, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 4 Comments
 

At this point, the shock has worn off. We’ve crawled out from the rubble of our collective disbelief and disappointment and are regaining our equilibrium, uneasy as it may be. We’re slowly squaring with the ice cold reality that Donald Trump – a deranged, unqualified and dangerously erratic narcissist –is the president elect and, even ... Read More
