Sometimes I feel like the quiet angry woman and sometimes I feel like the angry quiet woman.  It's a balance... learning when to roar and learning when to whisper.  Sometimes I get it "right" and other times I just don't.  This topic comes a

  I stood at the doorway of my oldest child's bedroom on his first birthday and grinned. You could not tell from his bedroom what gender he was. The colors were neutral, bright and bold and chosen for their psychological good – yellow for remembering and

  One summer afternoon in Tucson, my CASA girl and I were driving around in Big Ugly, and she was enjoying a little channel surfing on my car's XM radio.  She hooted and cheered when she figured out that if you turn the channel to 5 – you get music of the

It was overwhelming. It took over my psyche in a way that I would not have anticipated. What was it? Lunch with a Co-Woman on the Verge. Jane Devin and I had planned our lunch at a vegan restaurant on a sunny day in Tucson, Arizona and it was so lovely

One of the themes in Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is the impact that friendship (or it’s absence) can have on our lives. True friends see our goodness and flaws, strengths and weaknesses, and they love us for who we are rather than in spite of what we might

  Lately one of my favorite mottoes has been, “Be the person you want to become - now.” A lot times lately, when I am doing something, I stop and think, is this the person I imagine myself being in one, five, ten years from now? If not, time to step bac

Editorial note: I decided to tackle this month's theme, Healing Between Genders, from a few viewpoints: marriage, general social and of course, spiritual. In a dying relationship, I know I'll always see two things: apathy and lack of respect. I call them L

  Would you consider writing if your only goal was to place the finished work in a drawer when the writing is complete? A chiropractor friend recently lamented, “No matter how good I am at being a chiropractor, I still need to market my services.” I w

Healing Between the Genders Recently I saw an old episode of “What Would You Do”, titled “Man Drops Powder in Date's Drink”. and was more than a little disturbed. The episode showed actors being portrayed as a young attractive couple who met on the Inte

There have been two things that were my refuge for most of life. From age 16 my refuge consisted of words and music.  I wrote my first song then, and it was as if I took a trip to that proverbial island, where I could be who I am and not care about anythin

  Unlearning—this is the major premise of every spiritual and religious path. And most of what we need to do to be happy and balanced and live an authentic life requires unlearning what society taught us. Society, in general, is crazy. You are not

Last July I hit a bump in the freeway of life. My mammogram revealed lumps, small but needing a biopsy. Test conclusions: I needed to have two lumps removed, one from each breast.  The surgeon said, “Wow you are lucky, easy to get to the lumps and no signs

  She first got in my car with her headset on and a book in her hand. No way was she going to allow me to connect with her. No way was she going to let me in. Then I asked her to pop her music on in my car so we could both hear it – and she lit up. Fr

  Why is it so easy to look at the people around me and so easily see their super power, while at the same time, I am challenged to see my own?   No matter how many times someone tells me that I am wonderful, I have this little voice of doubt rise up insid

    The word vagina is derived from Latin and technically means “sheath for a sword.” In this case, I am guessing the sword is a penis.     Is our thinking still antiquated? Is our vagina truly ours? Is our female sexuality seen predominantly in terms

It seems I have spent a lifetime thinking and working on this blog, even though it has only been about ten days. It has been harder for me in some ways than “Mothers.” I have written and rewritten it. I am at a loss in many ways on the difference between

I'm really not a good writer.  It's so hard for me to find the right words to describe how I really feel or if the readers will fully understand what I'm trying to relay.  Please bear with me.. I'll try my best to make this very simple and brief.
