Fighting Like Cats and Dogs?

Fighting Like Cats and Dogs?

Over the years, we’ve had a total of seven dogs and two cats. (I’m embarrassed to admit how many of them are with us currently–suffice it to say, pet hair is one of my main foes.) They’ve come to us from different circumstances (all but two were rescues, most had a pretty bad start in life) […]

Beautiful Beliefs: A Perspective on Religion

Beautiful Beliefs: A Perspective on Religion

I know, I know… religion and politics, dangerous territory. Bear with me, though. Yes, my last post was about a woman’s right to choose and though it might seem political, I’m of the view that such a personal decision shouldn’t be subject to the whims of politics. Today, however, there is no doubt about it; […]

Without Choice: Where Are The Women?

Without Choice: Where Are The Women?

In college, in response to a presentation someone gave on abortion, my classmates and I were asked to indicate anonymously on a slip of paper whether we were pro-life or pro-choice. I was the only person to answer, “Pro-choice, but pro-life for myself.” My teacher thought it was an interesting response. She said if we’d […]

Peace.

Peace.

I’ve come out of hiding because my characters have gone into hiding. 🙂 Not really. Well, maybe … but they’ll come back. They promised. The real reason I stopped by was to speak about that big *thing* we have coming up tomorrow. Yes, love it or hate it, election day is on the horizon. I’d be […]

Embracing Our Inner Witchiness

Embracing Our Inner Witchiness

Have you checked the date lately? Seems like as good a time as any to show our inner witchiness some love. Sound sketchy? Hear me out…pretty please? I’m not talking about anything dark. I’m also not talking about spells or potions, nor am I trying to convert anyone to the religion of Wicca. (I’m not […]

(Please Don’t) Burn the Witch!

(Please Don’t) Burn the Witch!

I joke about my cat being my “familiar,” because she’s usually sprawled across me or curled up by my side, but I’m no witch. This doesn’t stop me from suspecting that, had I been alive during the ages of witch hysteria, I would have been walking around with heart palpitations and some seriously sweaty palms. […]

Cause For Celebration!

Cause For Celebration!

Since I’ve already shared this on my facebook page, I knew I needed to add it here! It’s been a great week, so far, and I’m very grateful! (1) First and foremost, I found out my little, old Nellie (aka sweetest beagle ever), despite her respiratory issues, does not have heart problems! Yay, Nellie Bean! […]

Which Witch?

Which Witch?

Can I make a confession? I kinda sorta love witches. In fact, I’ve loved them ever since I was a kid. Which kind, you might ask? (I hope you do ask, so my title makes sense.) Whether you’ve asked or not, I’ll answer. Not the evil kind. I’m not really a fan of Disney’s animated […]

So, Here’s My Ode to Autumn

So, Here’s My Ode to Autumn

Whenever the seasons change, I’m filled with nostalgia. Half-formed memories tug at my brain, promising to return a forgotten moment from childhood or, more often, to steep me in the sense of infinite possibility, which lit up like fireflies inside me in my younger days (and, sometimes, still does). Today, the fall sunlight carried me […]

What Color is Chartreuse, Anyway? My Take on the Mandela Effect

What Color is Chartreuse, Anyway? My Take on the Mandela Effect

Just the other day, I wrote a post on aloe vera, in which I mentioned that my “green thumb” was probably more like a chartreuse color. What I didn’t say is I had to check to be sure “chartreuse” was a yellowish-green, rather than a fuschia-ish pink. After doing some inquiring, it seems I’m not the […]
