A Soul’s Journey

Weird thought. Do you realize that we are walking atop the bones of every person who ever lived on earth? Taking the thought further, if you believe in reincarnation, this means that we are even walking atop our own bones from past lives. I can barely contain images like these. The Photo: More weirdness. My […]

To The Other Side Of Change

Can you feel the Shift? Nothing making sense? That’s how it’s been for me, for a long time now. All I know anymore is what I DON’T know. With my head, that is. I understand with my gut. I just can’t put it into words. And there’s no understanding the why of it. The how […]

Right Between The Vagina

Right between the vagina. A while ago, I had to drive from New York to New Jersey to get blood drawn. It was only 70 miles, but considering the traffic, it took two and a half hours to get there. Me being me, I walked into the exam room, my arms waving in the air, […]

Child – A Gift From God

My little Nico. Every day, all winter long, lost in my head during my four-mile walk, from pretty far away, something would nudge me, I’d look up, and there Nico would be. Staring. Watching my every move. Waiting for me to come closer. The second our eyes locked, he’d pretend this wasn’t true. My typical […]

Life – Love – Loss

“And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make.” I saw you. Sitting on the train. In joyous rapture. “No!” Are you fucking kidding me? You want me to delight in your delight? When you left me? With this family? To deal with her? You bastard. I didn’t believe. […]

Effects Of Acid

I took acid once. It was the summer I turned 15—on the eve of my going away party—thrown by my Ceil Place friends, my “real” family. My family of origin was packing the house to move us from Long Island to Arizona to open a fish business, because fish are so prolific in the desert. […]

Never Give Up Your Dreams

“If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” Marilyn Monroe said that. At 62 years old, and with tons of introspective work behind me, it seems impossible that I still beat myself up for having remaining imperfections, and yet I do. I’m one of […]

Honoring Your Ancestors : A Practice Long Forgotten

Death, and my WTF look. My brother Robert lived. The breath you just took in likely contains molecules of the air that he once breathed out. The same is true at an energetic level. Whatever emotions he experienced remain, the world changed because of it. Christmas is one of the few joyful times that I […]

C’mon Funk, Move your Ass!

Finafrigginly. Loss, Covid and betrayal have put me way behind in getting Book 2 in the C’mon Funk Series into the hands of my next editor. It’s taken me 15 years to describe the action-filled months that preceded Funk’s run for mayor (Book 1, May 2019) and those that came during his campaign (Book 2, […]

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

Antifragile. You don’t want to be around when Funk is reading a book—which is like all the time—because that’s all he can talk about. The problem is, his books are SO boring. It’s all head stuff, where I like heart stuff. But good wife that I am, I pretend I’m engrossed in whatever he’s saying. […]
