Oops, I did it again

I stole the title of this post from Brittany Spears, and in solidarity, I have half shaved my head as well. Over the past seven days, I reconnected with an ex.  We decided to try “us” SOBER.  And things were good.  I was cautiously optimistic.  I did NOT label our time together or ask him […]

When I love you, I am your biggest cheerleader.  I will give you the shirt off my back.  I will cook for you, clean for you, write you sweet little notes, and even pick up thoughtful lil gifts when I am out and about.  I value growth, learning, health and joy.  I am educated, employed, […]

Ora and Labora

There are fruitless conversations.  Conversations with people who think Melania is smart because she speaks multiple languages and in the same breath, negates the intelligence of  Elizabeth Warren, claiming, “people think EW is smart because she taught at Harvard Law.  (Well, it’s a pretty good start) Conversations where indefensible behavior, such as separating immigrant children […]

I got pissed last night, and that has stayed with me through today.  I do not like being pissed, no matter how “righteous” my […]

Low Hanging Fruit

I have some new readers, and this has made me a bit reluctant to write.  I cannot write bullshit, but when I feel as though my thoughts, words, choices and actions are being scrutinized in a negative manner, I have a difficult time writing my soul. Enough of that. This holiday season has been full […]

2019: A year in Review

In 2019, I learned: I need to be loving, teaching, and serving a population that would otherwise be unable to obtain someone with my particular education and skill set. Alcohol does not serve me, nor does it help me reach any long term goals. Excessive processed food and animal products do not serve me, nor […]
