Baby Boomers. We were born of parents who survived the Depression, World War II and the enormous cultural shift that occurred going from the 50s to the 60s. Raised by people who were living the residual effects of those traumas—the outcome for many of us was that our physical needs were met but few of […]

A Shift is Coming, and Thank Goddess for it!

A shift is coming. I’ve noticed a wonderful turn-around this horrid year. It started with a chair. I phoned the store where I purchased it and was spoken to so rudely that I called the company to report the dude. A woman answered and I started off with an apology. Said I was upset, and […]

Calling Down an Early Happy New Year!

This is a for shit year. Can I get an Amen on that? I try to be as open and honest on this platform as I am in my real life. One, it’s just my nature. Two, I’m hoping that me being vulnerable will help others risk doing the same. We’ve been operating at a […]

Warning: Very Strong Language Part two of a video of my 94 year old mom and me, on my most recent visit to see her. I post tonight because she’s hanging in the balance after a stroke today. But I want this out in the universe, because this is her, in all her glory. Shy, […]

You Never Met Me

SUBJECT: Go away MESSAGE: Go back where you came from. You’ve done enough damage here. I received that email from a woman. A person I’d never met. Who has never locked eyes with mine. Who I bet feels she is well-informed. Her message came on the eve of my book signing in Kansas City, no […]
