Open letter to my Earth Angels

The past 30 months have been challenging to say the least. Some of which I have fallen down while trying to learn the lessons put in front of me. Some I feel I have learned with honors. I have begged and pleaded at times for the challenges to lessen or to cease completely. Yet, "the... Continue Reading →


Falsus Corpus: Thoughts About Women’s Stupid Bodies

Love this

You Monsters Are People.

In prehistoric times the thing that made a woman the most desirable to the rest of her pack was having both arms. Things like sharp teeth and having no diseases were just perks back then. If you were some archaic human female spending her days trying to pull all the skin off a mammoth carcass, had most of your teeth, functional reproductive organs, and could start a fire without help, then you were probably the sexiest woman on the planet. Every man in your tribe would show up in front of your cave with a cup of dinosaur milk and a sharpened rock in the hopes that it might be enough to gain your favor.

Fast forward into modernity and the dinosaur milk has dried up. Everyone is arguing about body shape and what not to wear. There are campaigns endorsing fatness and abhorring skinniness where people make outrageous claims…

Weekly Challenge: Moved By Music: Southern Cross

When you see the Southern Cross for the first time, you’ll understand now why you came this way. I don’t remember the first time I heard Crosby, Stills and Nash’s “Southern Cross,” but I’m sure it was as soon as the video was released on MTV in the early 80s. I know that at that...

Loving and Letting Go

A friend I’ve known for several decades is laying his son to rest today. Even as I type the words, tears fill my eyes. Again.His son was a handsome 22-year old just beginning his life with an energetic 2-year old daughter.Unfortunately, what began as smoking weed in high school turned into a heroin addiction less...

The under-rated top performer – the Admin

I never really gave much credit to the secretarial field (no offense intended). I had aspired to make my own mark rather than working for someone in a support role. Now after many years in business, I realize that most roles are support roles in one form or another. We work for people with deliverables... Continue Reading →


Life Lessons from My Housemates

I share a 4 bedroom home with three children, two dogs, one mini-macaw, two Beta fish, one newt, one hamster, one bearded dragon, one chinchilla and two guinea pigs – plus 3 in utero guinea pigs. We aren’t quite bursting at the seams, but it’s getting close.It’s primarily my “fault” we have so many creatures/housemates.... Continue Reading →


The Courtesy Flush and Other Things I’ve learned in the Office

Please allow me to (for forgive me for) being crass.  I’m sure most people have read Robert Fulghum’s “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten,” at least in part. I think we need to have a grown up version that encompasses more than just those incredibly basic people skills and social niceties.... Continue Reading →


Let’s be honest with ourselves

I haven’t written lately because I just haven’t been inspired. Burying my thoughts deep within myself, I’ve felt that I’ve had not much to share or contribute (and that’s not a bad thing). Ironically, I flipped the page on my perpetual calendar and this is the quote for today: Honesty is the first chapter in... Continue Reading →


Life Highlights and Movie Clips

The older I get the more I realize that I’ve actually had some pretty great movie quality moments. Sad that I’m striving for film clip type memories, but isn’t that how our memories work? I’ve written about the highlights reels that we show people via our social media persona, so it only makes sense to... Continue Reading →
