Not today, anyways. It is hard to even get myself to read anyone’s blog posts today. I peruse through them all hoping to find ones that might not end in April Fool’s. But almost every time, “Gotcha’, April Fools”. Ha Ha Ha. It’s not that I don’t like a good joke; you’re just not that funny. […]
I was playing double solitaire by myself, rocking back and forth on the bar stool. A stranger laughed at me, then asked if I was winning. Then he reached out his big, man hands to teach a little girl how to play by herself. In this game, in life’s game, sometimes we find ourselves playing […]
It took me a minute….. to deal with, process, grow, etc. I love this phrase, but to some people it sounds dumb; referring to a larger, quantitative, span of time as a minute. Understandably, it probably took a lot longer than 60 seconds. A minute of time is different than a minute in time. Has […]
Credit Karma is a common sense explanation of the American economic system; including the hysterical history behind this most cherished commodity.
2nd edition, rewritten for a speech
It’s been a real pity party at my house this week, I tell you what. So much has happened in such a short time, it really weighs on a girl’s heart to think about it all. Except the thing is, it didn’t all happen at one time. In that moment of sadness, it’s easy to […]
My book finally arrived at the post office. Not just any book, but MY Book! Excitement, butterflies, a sense of pride; i had so many emotions as we ripped open the card board packaging. I couldn’t stop staring at the pages, reading words I had read a hundred times before. I bet this feeling never […]
The internet just broke. A moment of silence for net neutrality. But please, take just a moment; then yell out as loud as you can and raise holy hell!
It’s not the worst, but the first and the last, that cause the most damage
Follow me home, if I don’t get us lost first
It was just a walk by, but my side eye caught a glance, Of my silken silouhette, dancing pirouette, broom in hand. From this angle, line of sight, Reflection mirrored in new light. These curves and these dimples, how they shined and glistened. Like the floors I’d been sweeping And the tubs I’d been scrubbing. […]
I had to ask my self some tough questions in the face of indifference. I hope I am not the only one.
Sometimes it’s better to persefail than to keep fighting for perseverance.
A new word for an age old problem.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell which is the bigger farce, allowing corporations so much power or thinking we have the ability to stop them.
American History $atire is a common sense explanation of the American economic system; including the hysterical history behind this most cherished commodity.
When you find yourself at a precipice, how do you know whether it’s time to go cliff diving? Is there a time when you should just give up hope on fixing obstacles on your path?

Truth out of the mouths of babes
Cheers to Offending. Because some people need to be offended.
I would not be here if it were not for the most incredible mothers I know showing me the light in a time of darkness
a poll ponderance
Where ever you go, there you are. Clean Slate lays to rest some of the myths surrounding identity changes. No glamorous relocations here, just the real world problems you would face if you really did change your identity and start over.
A discussion on the idea of purposeful mediation, consciously choosing to connect with others.
Honor the words that purport your purpose
The origins behind Free The Truth
Alan Watts, my main man!
Make every minute a moment of avid awareness; chose to maintain a cognizant consciousness.
Common words with a new twist. Just don’t expect this satire to be any less true or painful.
An adopted truth about the birth of my existence.
I remember this girl; Fearless, Powerful, Strong. The girl from my youth that I always wished I could tap into. The me before I knew pain and sorrow. The me before I was knocked down and made to lower my head before others. She is no longer a distant memory. But don’t be mistaken. I […]
Biggest Pet Peeve of All Time: Talking about the weather. Why? Because there is so much more to talk about, so much more that needs to be talked about. But the weather is comfortable, easy, non-combative. The implications of this sickens me. As if humans have nothing more in common than the sky above us. Just because […]
Curbside note left on a box of funeral ashes
A glimpse at the author of Free The Truth; Selfie, No Filter, gives it to you straight.
Please join me in this very important conversation. Because Black Lives Do Matter! And so do Blue! And they are both in danger!
Years of running, one broken down door to the next. One thousand, five thousand, ten thousand dollars paid to end my life. Sometimes it was only a quarter ounce, a dime bag, a line. My life clearly not worth much, not to thee, or me, or even police Used as bait and tossed aside, with […]
A loving, but blunt guide to criticism and advice. Do your thing and don’t ever be ashamed!
This page is my way of endorsing all the amazing bloggers out there. Sorry Guys, I can’t offer you a sneaker deal. I don’t even have enough followers to make reblogging your posts worth anything. I may end up getting a few more followers in the future; but please do not hold out hope on […]
It is arguable that more people were raped, mutilated, and murdered by Japan than the Nazis during World War II. So why do so few people even know it happened? Please, if you do not know about Nanking, take a moment to learn something new; something we all should have been taught when we were in grade school. * Just Be Warned, it is some pretty heavy stuff, Rated R for imagery and content *
You are not my sunshine. You are my star light; Showing me beauty in the darkness. You are not normal. You are Supernormal; Going beyond the range of normal to a realm of extraordinary. You are not broken. You are perfectly imperfect; There is nothing wrong with you that needs fixing. You are not Autism. You are You, […]
I have suffered immeasurable losses. Sure, my losses can be quantified; their ratios rationalized to juxtapose the impressions left as scars. But the mass that weighs on my soul can not be scaled or justified. Sometimes it feels like an endless battle, denied enough time to wipe the blood off our eyes before the bell rings. Perpetually caught […]
Words that make my life better every day
“The body cries the tears the eyes refuse to weep.” A doctor told me this quote once after a visit for strep throat. He said that past traumatic experiences are the common factor linking several different diseases; like Migraines, IBS, Fibromyalgia, and Depression. As a Taoist, I believe you create blockages in your physical body when you do not address and deal […]
You have to pull the grass out just so; and not just any piece of grass. It should be a fairly thick piece that is wider than your thumb, and longer too. The longest blades of grass should be left to complement the wind as it sings across the prairie; the smaller blades stay to […]
If only the national debt earned a penny every time the word Kardashian was used. The goal of this speech was to use rhetorical devices and vivid words to write for the ear. Inspired by classic children’s authors as well as some of my favorite political rappers; this speech was performed shortly before the 2016 presidential elections.
For everyone reading this blog while they are at work, you are not alone my friend.
The reason I am on this site and in this world; we miss you so much Dad!
Oh, the joys of motherhood. Daily living with Autism is akin to dancing on a majestic spectrum; complete with all the brilliant, absurd, and magical moments you would expect to experience at the end of a rainbow.
Our scars are reminders of our strength, not the source of it. Refuse to be defined by the events that make life difficult!
