It's All Yours!

It’s just for you…your path in life. Yes, it’s all yours.

You are not Marie.…

Another world is


I feel it

calling my name



It's chiding me

to remain


to the integrity of manifesting


post-oppositional vision of us

in it


making fluid space

for all

our many flowering weeds to bloom.


hard to see







as we are

to contemporary constrictions

It's a Big Job, But It Can Be Done

Mrs. Esther Grosvenor taught the Colfax High School seniors their last English class before they graduated and embarked upon the world to conquer whatever it was they thought lay before them.

(as we affectionately called her), nevertheless, persevered in her job in assigning the task of diagramming sentences and drilling the rows of…

When I Was Unemployed And Starving, I Worked For A 1-800-Psychic Hotline

Throughout my teenage years, I spent many hours at the local occult store where I would purchase healing crystals, runes, pendulums, dream catchers and sage (lots of sage), and eventually my own deck of tarot cards.

Fortune-telling quickly became a favorite pastime among me and my friends. Anything and everything that could unlock the secrets of what our futures held—tea leaves, dream interpretation, palmistry—immediately held our attention until the next thing…

Cuban Blog Day #23 Spend All Your Money

I was taking a taxi to the airport at noon, so I woke early and enjoyed my last few hours in Havana.  I needed to find a post office to mail the rest of my postcards. I wanted them to be postmarked from Cuba and not Mexico. Finding a place to mail them was surprisingly harder than I expected. I asked a man with a family where one was, and they ended up running around Havana with me, going in and out of various buildings looking for a place that would mail out my postcards.

We never…
