I Don’t Believe A Word You Say!

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.  […]

Tattooed My Soul — The Struggle is R e a l

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 […]

Poster Child

I don’t want to be the name on your next bleeding heart law.  I refuse to stand idly by as your medusaec heads echo empty apologies. My well is dry and the buckets keep coming. The neon sign says closed but your blind eyes keep tugging. No law is finite, no job description complete, your […]

Homage

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. […]

The Great Cheese In The Sky

The gates open and blind mice begin running. They lurch forward only to discover they are teathered to their owner’s collars. Chew off their feet and eat through their neighbors,  for a chance to play the Master’s game, this rat race we are all playing.  They would burn their eyes for a glance of the same prize. […]

He Died

They cursed and reviled him But he was dead They gossiped late into the night Taking delight at his plight But he was dead They gathered and made plans They handed out bans But he was dead His flesh had died On that fateful night His spirit was born…

Reflections in the Pond (full, version)

The final, full version of Reflections in the Pond. This furry, allegorical fable is full of humor, inspiration, and truth. In writing this piece, I had a lofty goal of appealing to people of all belief systems and backgrounds; along with creating a story where the lesson you learn changes every time you open the pages. It is not a fairy tale about how things should be, but a fable that is eerily similar to the way things often are. Please enjoy!

It’s A $ign

It was a very dark time. The housing bubble had just popped. Ragged bankers were crowding the streets with signs forecasting the end of days. The general public thought long and hard; recalling the compassion and reciprocity lenders had shown them in tough times. Out of the darkness a beautiful…

Much Ado About the Weather

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 […]

Rape of Nanking

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 Autism

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, […]

Trust The Fall

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 […]

Weep Willfully

“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 […]
