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 | Post A Comment
 

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

Get Down with the Down Ticket

There is probably nothing I can say about the unhinged narcissistic man-toddler that is the GOP candidate for president that hasn’t already been said. OK, maybe there’s one thing: If said man-toddler even thinks about grabbing my genitalia, I’ll give him a swift knee to the nuts and as hard a right hook as I can ... Read More

The Annoying Goo of Inertia

POSTED ON September 27, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 4 Comments
 

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. The last thing I put up was in July and was about my young nomad taking off again. Prior to that, I wrote a post about a Yayoi Kusama exhibit I’d recently seen in Houston. That was back in June. The “Out to Lunch” sign has ... Read More

Mom of a Nomad. Round Two.

As he put a few remaining things into his backpack and took care of a couple last minute tasks, like vacuuming his room and boxing up his computer, it took everything I had to keep from crying. Trying not to cry takes enormous effort. It’s like wrestling a bear or beating back a wildfire. My ... Read More

Aftermath of the Aftermath

POSTED ON June 21, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 2 Comments
 

I was in Houston visiting family when I heard the news about the massacre in Orlando. Like everyone else, I was stunned, horrified and deeply saddened. Now just over a week since the shootings, I continue to cycle through an array of emotions. Mostly, I feel grief for all the lives that were lost and ... Read More
