Hand and hand they walked the tor, Clouds above the wind did soar. Laughing over tales of yore, Friends forever walked the shore.   Amazing journey they had, More life ahead so be glad. Laughter over lack of rad, What matters the latest fad?

  Chasing the sunset to the ends of the earth Inhaling the cold in all of its girth The canyon is big, in fact it is grand But my thoughts are more urgent – can you please warm my hand? The deer were quite neighborly as we shivered on by Midnight snac

 Old pictures.  There is nothing quite like the nostalgia, or the horror, of childhood family photos.  Usually an episode of laughing until you have tears rolling down your face is involved in this visual trip down memory lane.   An indignant mother is too

Many years ago, I was a young mother-to-be living in Seattle, Washington. I knew no one except for my then husband, mother-in-law and my obstetrician. I would faithfully go to the library once a week, on my daily walks and it was there that I found a

My fingers fumbled a bit to type that phrase.  I don't think of myself as a heroine.  My cape often is wrinkled and choking my neck, just a bit, from "saving the day".  My Wonder Woman bracelet that encircles my life is the permission I have given myself t

Hi I'm not sure how many of you will actually see this post, but I thought I would give it a go, as I've been reading the recent blogs on WOTV and am inspired by the posts on Healing: Woman to Woman. I just started working with a non-profit organisation in

I had been giving considerable thought to the Madonna/Whore Archetype, the first splitting of the female self post Eve.  Ana (fabulous founder of Women on the Verge) asked me for an idea on a theme for January, naturally I suggested the modern

Why on earth do I feel compelled to react to this? I'm talking about the book review about abusive relationships.   To claim the main reason women stay in an abusive relationship is mainly out of fear of loneliness is in my eyes a very weak argumen

  I was born a dreamer, believing that we could be more. I believed and still do in a kinder gentler world. In a place where people are raised to be thoughtful of each other and to see how their actions might affect the other person. Call me naive if you

Winter brings its own kind of life, The Yeti screams in pure delight. Mountains talk and glaciers walk, Hunter’s prowl and the wolves’ growl. The hawks fly and the eagles soar, The woods are dark and terror reigns. Across the plains

So, this month/year our topic is Women Changing The World -- and we do, don't we?   My very first thought was this factoid: in economic development circles it is well known that, if you give business development assistance to a man, he will improve his lot

Amazing. I write about sex all the time--well the consequences of sex on women's lives, both positive and negative, consensual and coerced, but actually writing about sex well, that's proven to be a different thing altogether.For starters, it has made me r

It's pink ribbon time again. That time of year when we're bombarded with all things pink to bring attention to breast cancer, it's causes, treatment, and funding for research.   There's a lot of talk about "boobies" and "ta-tas," but there's a whole lot mo

I think about the brave things women do, from not faking an orgasm to trying to work and raise children. I think about the day-in, day-out, mind-numbing tasks we perform and how happy and content women can be regardless of how numb the mind becomes at ti

  The Fab Five was the nickname for a 1991 University of Michigan men's basketball team recruitment class that is considered by some to be "the greatest class ever recruited”.    I have my own Fab Five, and they don’t dribble a ball.   Eleanor Roosevelt, C

  Innocence can be an excellent companion when you’re an impressionable adolescent, even if you’re too young to realize it at the time. It was another hot summer evening, and my best friend Penny and I had spent most of the day playing at my house in the

I've particapated in silent retreats. I ready myself for them, remind myself of the natural urges to speak I have to be mindful of. In the end, I am forever learning about the noise in my own head and the constant stream of thinking.   This months theme--
