Your decisions matter past Election Day.

Yes, the election matters.And your choice matters.No matter what that choice was. AND No,that will not be enough. I have been watching, waiting, witnessing this year…a lot. I’ve read and heard things, burned images into my mind, that I wish I had never fucking seen, read, or heard. We are all currently witnessing and waitingContinue reading “Your decisions matter past Election Day.”

Love is Relentless

Here’s to kissing you forever. Happy anniversary darling. I had no idea who I was when I kissed his tender lips ten years ago. And in my limitation of what I could see of me, I had a limited view of what I could see of him. We were blind, bound by love, and someContinue reading “Love is Relentless”

Radical Self Honesty?

Integrity is an interesting trait. Defined as a “quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.”   We often think about someone as either having integrity or not. Someone is either honest or dishonest. Someone is either acting within integrity, or without. And I don’t necessarily think it’s that black and white. It is,Continue reading “Radical Self Honesty?”

We LOVE As WE Are

“I love you.”“And how do you love me?”“I love you as you are.” It’s a fallacy really.A lie told to one’s self. To believe that we see someone clearly enough to love them “as they are.” We like to think that we can see people clearly.Our parents, our kids, our lovers, our life partners and friends…. OurContinue reading “We LOVE As WE Are”

I went to a cuddle puddle.

Yep, that’s right, a cuddle puddle! (Insert hearty eyes emoji here). For those of you who are wondering, a cuddle puddle is a big old pile of pillows, and comfy blankets, with a bunch of strangers piled in the middle, spooning, caressing, holding hands, touching each other with consensual, non-sexual touch. What thoughts does thisContinue reading “I went to a cuddle puddle.”

Relationships are hard and complex and riddled with expectations,AndContinue reading “Mother’s Day”

2018 has been real.

I sit in a hotel room in Mississippi and I reflect on just how “real” 2018 has been. We are here to celebrate a 110th birthday. Unreal that some should live so long and my Dad started losing his mind in his early 60s. Life is funny that way. The end of this year didn’tContinue reading “2018 has been real.”

That guy didn’t break your heart; your EGO did.

I don’t believe Cavewoman had the luxury or time for heartbreak. Heartbreak is often caused by rejection and betrayal, and I’m not so sure that can exist in a community that shared everything – including food, shelter, children, and partners. In a time before possessions and property, where every person does their part to contributeContinue reading “That guy didn’t break your heart; your EGO did.”
