I was herdsman for my Dad.
A simple job, now that calving season was pretty much over.

When I was little I watched shows like Star Trek, The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, and Happy Days. With the exception of flying through space at warp speed, and a family band touring on a psychedelic bus, these shows were about normal families, doing normal…Continue

The revolt’s first Friday was decisive. The preceding 3 days had shown that what had started on January 25 was not a mere demonstration. It spread like wildfire across the country. Police oppression cleared Tahrir square for normal use again, kept the streets flowing, but it was like a lid over boiling water. They knew – and we knew – that what had started was not going to stop and the protesters were not going anywhere. January 28 was intended to be our point of no return. Each…Continue

I'd love to know if there is a place to share some of my writing. Taking Psychology classes has my mind in full blown "let's write" mode. I have done very little reading for pleasure, but when I do get the chance, I often turn to Kris Radish. Her writing inspires me to remain true to myself no matter how challenging that feels at times. I love the way she connects women in her books. I devour her words and then I'm always hungry for more!!
When I do get to reading, then I get to…Continue

I am not that into astrology, so imagine my surprise when I met this guy online who appeared normal but turned out to be WAYYY too into his psychic friends. Let me explain. “Mike” and I had hit if off electronically, exchanged some flirty e-mails, and were heading down the path to eventually meeting in person. Apparently, my astrological sign was a deal breaker. When he…Continue

At first it was a mystery to me, but that’s what the vanity license plate reads in the middle of the eight bumper stickers on the back of my autistic adult son’s little Toyota. He’s 24 and he’s been driving himself to work for nearly two years now, pulling trash at county parks for minimum wage. There’ve been two tickets for going ten miles over the speed limit, but other than a broken rearview mirror and the unexplained yellow paint on the side of his gray car, no…Continue
My son started preschool last Wednesday. It wasn’t pretty. We entered the school and because I was concerned about him wetting his pants (my last two blogs were about my struggle with potty training), the first thing I did was show him the bathroom. Next we went…Continue

Director Peter Weir's 1975 film Picnic at Hanging Rock explores the contradictions of Australian culture, circa 1900. On an expansive, still largely unsettled island, the British have tried to import their haughty, tight-corseted ways into a provincial land of open spaces and wild animals. Never is this distinction more clear then at…

My husband was diagnosed with brain cancer in early July. My life has changed in ways I could not have imagined. I want to write about the experience and how I feel.
Have you ever lived with the spectre of cancer? Have you ever been touched by cancer. I guess I have lived a charmed life because this is my first experience with it.
July, August and September now are almost over. David's tumor is deep inside of his right frontal lobe and is inoperable. …Continue
