Thought For the Day…

Thought For the Day…

Replace the word “racism” with the word “culturism” (it doesn’t exist, by the way, but should). Would that change anything? What would it change if so? Would it make a difference in how society sees diversity? Think about it like this: if you couldn’t argue that “it’s in their blood” because culturism would say that …

It Happened Again

It Happened Again

Hi guys. Sorry for the radio silence. Once again JetPack and my host server had an argument and one decided to take my blog prisoner and hold it for ransom. I finally got it back last night when my host server decided to give JetPack permission to work again. Alright, so maybe it sounds more …

Thoughts While Reading Last Night

Thoughts While Reading Last Night

Last week a friend of mine downloaded the Goodreads app to her cell phone and joined up with many others on a 2017 book reading challenge. You set a goal of a certain amount of books to read within the year and then off you go to meet that limit. I have never joined that …

Left of Center

I remember the first time I ever heard that I was shy. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, maybe 6 or 7, and my family was at a party one of my step-aunts was hosting. There were so many adults and most were strangers. The only children were  me and my sisters and …

I Have a Dream…

I Have a Dream…

Compassion Will Test You

Compassion Will Test You

I wasn’t planning on writing about compassion today. I’ve been trying to spread it like wildfire recently so I’ve been taking a break and letting other voices be heard as well. Yeah, I’m a chatterer. My mother’s nickname was ‘Chatty Cathey” after the doll for a reason. And me, well, once I get to know …

#JeSuisCharlie, Ahmed, & the World

No pictures today. Just words. The last week has been rough, especially since the Paris shootings which took place this past Wednesday (also my son Jack’s tenth birthday). If you are not aware, the satirical newspaper office of Charlie Hebdo was attacked by gunmen who shot 12 specific unarmed people as well as an officer. …

This Above All: To Thine Own Self Be True

This Above All: To Thine Own Self Be True

I wasn’t going to write this post. I thought of twenty reasons why I shouldn’t, why I couldn’t, and that I didn’t have to, especially since it deals with a bit of controversy. In the end, my heart, speaking ever so quietly as it ofttimes does, reminded me that for change to happen, even those …
