The best of times.
The worst of times.
My parents had decided that our family needed to visit Montana.
And Virginia City.
It sounded . . . Western.
To those of us from the ranch, that translated to mean – exotic.
We led a small life, I admit it.

First, we’d like to apologize to anyone who tried to join the chat on Oct. 16th and was unable to get in ~ we had a glitch in our giddy-up that night…no one could enter, with the exception of Muse Authors (which made for a sobering realization at about 7:30 when no one else came to our party).
So…we’ve found the missing key to unlock our doors ~ and would love for you to come to our party……Continue

Do you think it's true that older women become invisible? I keep hearing it, but I don’t know if I believe it.
I think invisibility is like a new car: once you buy it, you see that model everywhere.
Recently I read a post wherein an older woman (OW) claimed to be invisible because, while she stood at a counter talking with a clerk, a younger woman…Continue

The Submission Mission had an interesting discussion about self-publishing during the September Live Chat. I’m no expert of self-publishing, but here’s a quick follow-up to that conversation. My take-away was that self-publishing looks like an easier route but actually demands that the author put in a lot of time beyond the writing itself.
Perhaps the easiest way to self-publish is to set up a blog. I…Continue

We moved to a rural town and rented a small house. The house had an oppressive vibe. At first I thought it was the nasty carpeting that reeked of dog. But even after I steam-cleaned it multiple times, the vibe lingered. I felt as though I was being watched.
Within about three weeks of moving in, I decided we needed to do a house blessing to release any old energy that didn’t need to be there anymore. …

I’ve spent a few hours the past couple days at one of the Occupy DC protests. As I was told Thursday night during my visit, there are actually two going on simultaneously. One of them is in Freedom Plaza and is peopled by hardcore serious activists™. It trends a little older and grayer. This is because their demonstration had been planned much farther in advance, well before the original Occupy Wall Street in NYC got underway. Its numbers may be a few hundred more or so. This is the group…Continue
