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.

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.

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. […]

Fall Apart To Find Spirit

“Funk, if the world is gonna keep crashing and burning, I’m letting our relationship burn too. Let’s see what ‘Us’ rises from the ashes.” I think my husband swallowed his tongue. You know how a deer looks in the headlights—trapped and frozen—well, that’s how Funk looked when I delivered those words. After 43 years, my […]

Baby Boomers are a Tough Breed

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 […]
