Becoming wholehearted

For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt pressured to have a memorable

experience on New Year’s Eve. Over the years, I’ve found myself

attending all manner of parties and celebrations that never quite felt


But having put a lot of time and energy in 2010 into what was most

important to me, and being honest about what wasn’t, my New Year’s

experience this year was different. I had two objectives: to spend time

with the people I love and to finish… Continue

since I was 16 during the summers, and I thought I knew plenty about

money, until…

3D and Me

They look like a normal pair of cardboard glasses but with lenses of different colors. Once I put them on, I am drawn into a world much different than the world I know and a world I want to stay in for a while.

The writer in me wants to take those glasses apart and see…

What Words Would You Ban?

It’s a New Year. 2011. Wow.


I’m sure we’re all ready to lose weight, stop smoking, cut down on sugar, and start exercising more. Right? We all know that lasts about one week exactly. The moment we realize we were in coma when we agreed

to all that resolution stuff.


But, I digress as I…

There is a type of house cleaning I would rather avoid, and then there is the kind I actually relish. The first strikes me as a mundane chore; the second, an anticipated delight.

My mother often voiced how much she hated doing housework because it would never last. She would say, "As soon as I get it all cleaned, someone has to…

All Male "Best of" Poetry List

I just saw this and thought it was funny that Lista calls himself out for making the all-male list. Interesting rhetorical choice. Does he think it will keep others (especially women) from reacting to it? The Best Books of 2010: Poetry He does throw a few women a bone by mentioning their names. I can imagine there are women right now throwing him something else.

A Life's Work Speaks Louder than a Million Words

As we often lament, every minority or marginalized group can be easily stigmatized,  slandered, or reduced by what is not factually correct.  How one personally deals with it is a matter of individual preference; I would not dictate terms to anyone if I could.  Tactics may differ, but the response does not. …
