Just write. See what happens.

Bullies: How You Treat People = WHO YOU ARE

Posted on March 3rd, 2017

For your reading pleasure today, we have a rant for and about BULLIES. Specifically, adult bullies who need to know better. I’m incensed after reading an article about disgusting trollery cropping up among Ontario doctors, targeting other doctors with whom they disagree on their internal politics. Click on over if you’d like to bear witness to some truly heinous […]

Let’s have Sisterhood take over the world – boys, girls, and all.

Posted on January 21st, 2017

Let’s talk about Sisterhood. It’s a much bigger concept than simply having female siblings. I believe that Sisterhood, big S, encompassing millions of diverse humans, is what today has been about. I’m aware that there was a big, braggadocious, depressing, basically unthinkable event going on yesterday. It was my day off. I studiously avoided all exposure […]

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle – Two-Minute Book Review

Posted on January 17th, 2017

Title: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle – A Year of Food Life Author: Barbara Kingsolver, with Stephen L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver Other works: (by Barbara) The Poisonwood Bible, Prodigal Summer, Small Wonder, The Lacuna, The Bean Trees, etc. Recommended by: Book Club! I also find that Kingsolver’s work recommends more of itself to be read. Genre: Non-fiction/Cooking/Poetry […]

Big Magic – Two-Minute Book Review

Posted on November 29th, 2016

Title: Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear Author: Elizabeth Gilbert Other works: Eat, Pray, Love, The Signature of All Things, etc. Recommended by: Glennon at Momastery (again). I’ll pretty much try anything she says. Also, I’d already read Eat, Pray, Love, and although it wasn’t dramatically life-changing for me, it was fascinating and memorable […]

The Gifts of Imperfection – Two-Minute Book Review

Posted on November 28th, 2016

Sakes alive, it’s been ages since I officially reviewed a book! More than three years, actually. Pourquoi? I started to explain, but I’ve decided it doesn’t matter! I do want to write about books, but I don’t have time to wax philosophical, and you may well not have time to read such blither-blather either. Hence […]

Antique Children’s Book, Part 2 – Sailor Hippo, Tommy Duckling, and Ostrich

Posted on November 23rd, 2016

Antique Children’s Book, Animal Cutes: The plot thickens. If you thought the questionably cute critters in Part 1 were subversive, get a load of Part 2. Hoo boy. So many questions. Why is the hippo a sailor? Why is he old and illiterate? Why is he trying to look wise? I have a notion that “Old […]

More Proof of Humanity (a.k.a. #NaBloPoMo Day “2”)

Posted on November 16th, 2016

It’s Transgender Awareness week, in addition to being Post-Election-Hate-Crime-Hyper-Awareness week. I’ve decided that during this month of posting, I’m also going to keep my eye out for Proof of Humanity, i.e. when people do stuff that shows their compassion for other people, in spite of the forces that seem determined to quash tenderness among Earthlings. Today […]

A Little Faith in Humanity from Remembrance Day

Posted on November 15th, 2016

Hi, lovely di-hards. It’s been an emotional week, n’est-ce pas? Right around this time last Tuesday, there was a disbelieving dread building on my Facebook news feed. I could hardly bear to look at the actual stats. My daughter had strep throat; we all slept badly, and felt ill the next day – on so many levels. […]

Calling for Love in the Age of Global Bullying

Posted on November 10th, 2016

The dust is settling. We know it’s not just a bad dream. The unthinkable has come to pass. That Trump dude is now the US President-Elect… and I think I’ve figured out why. I don’t mean why in terms of the Electoral College (which I make no claim to understand), or in terms of voter turnout (though there’s […]

5-Day Artist Challenge, Day 4: Music

Posted on October 23rd, 2016

In my bakery-café of the 5-Day (plus an intervening month) Artist Challenge, how to metaphorize music? How can I possibly convey, bread-wise, what music means to me? The truth is, I can’t. But I’m going to use some more it’s-my-blog leeway and say: it’s COOKIES. Some cookies need lots of practice and training to make. Some cookies you can just whip up […]
