POV

We all know how powerful point of view can be and how it can drastically alter things.  In certain circumstances, both parties can be right, even though they have completely different arguments (I’ve personally seen this a handful of times in real life). I recently told you about a friend who was having a hard …

Prayers, Not Anger

I recently saw something on Facebook which said, How about we pray for our President and staff instead of tearing them down and showing so much anger. The short answer: No way! We’re too angry! The majority of us did not vote for him, yet we’re stuck with him.  For this, we’re angry. He has …

Cry for Help

With all of the very public suicides in the media right now, I’ve been more aware of it. That being said, I just peeked in on a … friend?  If they unfriend you on Facebook, but you still care about them, are you allowed to call them a friend?  Anyway, I wanted to see how …

Feeling Powerless

As I sit in the safety of my living room, I feel utterly powerless.   I am angered, but not enough to actually do anything.  I am saddened, but still remain motionless.  What will it take to get me to do something?  I think the point is – I don’t feel like I am capable of …

No More Knights

I recently saw this on Facebook, and it kinda made me angry that there was only one option: At face value, it looks like there are two options: her “man” fixes it or another man does. Whoa!  Is it the new me, or is this absolutely ridiculous?  There is only one option there – that …

Puppy Pics

Last Sunday was Father’s Day – a day which usually passes without much hoopla. I haven’t spoken with my father in years, I don’t celebrate with my children’s father, and I don’t have a partner in my life who is a father.  So, to me, it’s just another day. I went hiking with my mother …

Stronger than Love

I recently came across the questions – Is there an English word that is means more than love? The easy answer is – no, English sucks big time in that way.  So many other languages have multiple (dozens!) of words for “love.”  Not English.  Lame! But then I started really thinking about it.  Why?  Why …

Father’s Day

Once again, Father’s Day is coming up.  Once again, I don’t have a father to celebrate.  No father, no boyfriend with a child to help celebrate the day.  Isn’t it funny how that works?  You leave all of the men in your life, and you don’t have anyone to celebrate on Father’s Day.  Huh. From …

Living a Nightmare

I had a nightmare a few nights ago.  You know me – normally I laugh about them, write them down, and then move on. The one from the other night lingers. When you look at it at face value, it doesn’t seem like much of a nightmare.  Actually, it kinda seems like a dream come …

Back At It

Isn’t it funny how when you get caught up in something, you seem to lose track of other things? I just realized that during the last few weeks (while I was concentrating on flirting and having fun with attractive men) I haven’t worked on my book.  At all.  Any of them.  *Hanging head in shame* …
