I recently watched an interview with Michelle Obama and Barbara Walters... she told Barbara and the millions of people watching her, that her first priority was herself.  And Barbara asked, "Is that selfish?" Mrs. Obama replied, not at all and went on to s

In my early 30's, I remember reading Circle of Stones, a book about women and rites of passage and ritual.  It discusses even celebrating a young woman's first period... with flowers and a special lunch... and a tribute to a father taking out his young dau

Writing about sex is like writing about my entire life.  It was never taught to me as a sacred practice, so it was never sacred... not until the last 10-15 years or so of my life and after I was introduced to tantric sexual practices.  My sexuality is defi

Writing about being on the verge looks very different to me now then it would have done so about a month ago.  For the last couple of years being on the verge felt like doing a lot of things to manifest my dreams coming true: staying busy, 'planting seeds'

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

When I think about women leaders, many women come to mind.  For one, Clarissa Pinkola Estes who wrote Women Who Run with the Wolves, was an innovator of introducing the power of women through the power of words and stories. I remember reading and feeling e

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

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

Healing betweens the genders... what a beautiful concept.  Perhaps all healing stems from acceptance... acceptance of the fact that we are all different and with that comes a variation of opinion and behavior.  Is it or was it ever about equality? Of cours

Long Distance Mothers I live 3000 miles away from my mother and see her maybe twice a year.  It's funny how things turn around with time...and before you know it, you wish you were closer so you could share some of those moments that you now realize are pr

  Mothers     I believe that every woman is a mother, whether it is a biological child, an adopted child, a friend, a sister, the mother of a dog or cat or pet or plant…. She is a mother.

  I don't really know what to write as the words in my head start to fight so I open a bottle of wine and the words start to pour out in time   but a headache is coming on quick and my thoughts are starting to stick so I read some more poems on the Verge a

  The Contest Why do I loathe contests so? According to the dictionary… Con, to persuade or swindle or Con, that which opposes, a body of evidence or Con, a convict. Is it the competition? Test, a critical examination or evaluation of the quali

  Sonata Appassionata   I love to slide my fingers up and down their smooth hard surfaces, savoring every inch of their breadth and length, touching them, kissing them, surprising with a delicate tickle. Brown, white, black, their exteriors thrill me equal

  Tall Men Love Their Height   Tall men love their height A slight advantage from their sight They tower over other gents And cannot stand at all in tents   It does not matter if they’re fat They’re just too tall to notice that Nor does it matter if they’r

I have several Sheros who shaped my life and path but I will write about the first today.  Diana Clark in Portland, Oregon was my first spirituall guru -  my inspiration for searching and finding my true voice and soul.  She taught me how to appreciat this

  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

This is truly a conundrum of a subject for me because as a woman, I thought it would be easy to heal energies with other women. Not so. I believe it's because people, man or woman, are on their own path and sometimes where they are, is not where I am or vi

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
