SW Blog Post Virgin

I have wanted so long to get back to writing.  For years, writing was my constant companion, the invisible lover I couldn't wait to return to.  I remember writing long into hundreds of humid Georgia nights, drinking tea and smoking Camel Wides.  (I miss smoking too but I want to return to good habits.)  I remember hardly ever being without a pen and paper nearby and writing on napkins, paper plates, cigarette boxes, receipts - anything that would hold my thoughts until I could tuck them away…

My book continues to move forward. I got edits back on Chapter 11, 12 and 13 yesterday. Finished with those edits, and am now working on Chapter 14. It's due Saturday. I'm also reading about the publishing world trying to learn about the industry.

Reality Check: Learn To Be Alone

I've been the New Girl a handful of times.



Second grade, eighth grade, freshman year of high school, freshman year of college, in addition to moving to an unknown city at 20 years old--then returning a year later.



All in all, a feeling of social rejection regardless of the situation…

Chicks Versus Dicks

"Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”—that is the age-old phrase that best explains the seemingly endless battle of the sexes. And while we technically aren’t from different universes, this mantra indicates a truth that we have learned to accept: we differ in more ways than not.

They say opposites attract though, right?

THE BASICS

The differences between sexes are some of the first things noticeable at birth because of our telling…

Sometimes we're led to find truth and meaning in roundabout ways

It may not always start in the art studio,

but somehow, eventually, it all gets there!

Cowboys & Indians - Melody D. Scott

I was in a movie one time.  All our neighbors had horses for their only form of recreation, as we did.  One of the guys had a brother in law who lived in Hollywood and knew a lot of people who had access to film, cameras, projectors, and sound implements.  This was at a time before digital cameras, so all of this equipment was rare to the average person.

 

One day the brother in law decided we who lived in this…

Befriending Insecurities

Why do we, myself included, carry so much doubt? Our eyes, our hair, our noses and mouths, the way we walk, the way we dress, the way we speak, our talents — we doubt so many things about ourselves. And when it comes down to a negative comment from one person, and compliment from someone…

Secrets

Secrets are like caves.

Dark and cold with

unexplored rooms and water

so still the dead

seem to live underneath.

Our whispers chain us together

like Ethiopian slaves.

Not bound for the Promised Land

or The Red Sea.

Lost- there is no way

we will see the sun and stars again.

We have no money to

pay for our passage out to freedom.

We empty our pockets we pull out

living bats with hair caught on…

Red Cross - Red Crescent united donation April 21; China's Generousity

 I suggest that our world nervous system is overflowing with stress. The recent shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the ferry turning over, the shootings at the Jewish center, are all examples of our world being too ill with stress. Our nervous systems are leaking out like a hot water or gas from a rusty valve. We cannot carry anymore stress without the spiritual rehabilitation of our world.

 If we the world were able to do something together, like donate to a certain charity, altogether…
