  There once was a Woman on the Verge Whose dreams were so bright, they did surge Untethered by rules Her friends were her jewels And together, their hopes would emerge   The Woman on the Verge was named Hope For president she ran, then for pope Her heart

  I was having the most difficult time thinking of myself as a heroine of any kind. I think that if I consider myself to be that for someone, then just by that association it is automatically mutual. In my road travels for my Beauty & Wisdom project I

Universities in the "Show-Me" state of Missouri seem to like studying blogs and the characters of those who write them.  Last year, the Missouri State University in Springfield asked me to participate in a student study on media ethics and the "Wild West"

A lot of my own assumptions and judgments have been called out since I ran into a former colleague. I'm still trying to process.   I used to work in an "urban minority community center" alternative clinic, and will stay generic with names and all that good

Today I feel compelled to tell a little story about peace.   My brother and I were two of the most fortunate people in the world. We were raised by two parents who balanced each other in a way that demonstrated acceptance and love that we have been able

This is a house that loves summer.  Between soccer games, farm share pick ups, and trips down the street to the lake, there's a lot to love.  It's also a time where we try to slow things down a bit and really soak up our time together, since t

    In Part one of Sex, Money and Relationships, (Part one can be read here:http://bit.ly/bv9YUz) I laid the foundation of duality, and suggested the needs of the body hooked us, thereby tethering us to one side of the duality. I suggested l

  At the beginning of every month, I make a commitment to myself to fully be in every topic. This has proven to be quite beneficial to me, in my growth. With that endeavor in mind, I chose to focus at the beginning of this month, while our topic is “Real

  On The Verge— I don’t know what life is like NOT being on the verge. On the verge is my home. Comfortably uncomfortable. I can’t say at what point I realized that anything worthwhile would require me being on the verge. On the verge of crazy, on the ver

Do you know what is so cool about this subject and the impetus (thank you Ana) to write about it? It's that when I think of women leaders I am thinking about women I actually know... not women in the news or in Times Magazine... women that I speak with and

I have been listening to the words spoken to me and others throughout my life. I am both blessed and cursed with the ability to remember clearly the way things happened or were. Many times I have wished to forget a particular incident, yet no matter how

When my brother at age 26 was brutally murdered during a random road rage attack there wasn't much anybody could say to make me feel better.  Here is an excert from my book "BRISTOL bOYZ STOMP" [November 2011] When I was alone, I remembered what people sa

  We use words so freely, we forget they are a reflection of our state of being. If only every word could come from our most holy self. If only we knew their power. If only we saw the blessings or curses they become as they roll off our tongues. Like s

You would think that as a feminist I'd have plenty to say about this month's topic of "healing between genders."  Surely I am stocked full of examples of gender essentialism gone wrong, or exercises that help build understanding and community between the s
Hegemommy · 2177 days ago

I'm probably not in the best place to be writing about healing between the genders. That was my first thought when I started out to ponder this month's Women on the Verge theme. I'm just about six months out from finalizing my divorce. At this point, I'm s

The phrase "Healing Between the Genders" brings to mind that old song, do you remember it? "If You Don't Know Me By Now" by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes (later recorded by Simply Red). It's a beautiful melody. The lyric goes: "if you don't know me by n

I  believe that the higher the consciousness about gender and people differences, the faster this collective healing, already in effect, will progress.  And I know I always come back to this... but... self-love and self acceptance is a great place to start

  I was recently asked what I consider to be my greatest accomplishment and without hesitation I said, “Being a mother.” I don't think that I am the best mother, but I do think that I deeply, deeply love my children and step-children and it shows. They k

My Dearest Edgar, I've read your post of yesterday, More times than I can count or say. I cannot seem to speak or hear, Except your words within my ear.   What do you mean by nevermore? My heart, my soul that I adore? Where is my love of latter-day, Who sp
