Theme of the Week: Motherhood – Should I send my estranged mother a card for Mother’s Day?

Mothers-Day-Card

“Hearing him talk about his mother, about his intact family, makes my chest hurt for a second, like someone pierced it with a needle.” 

― Veronica Roth

Theme of the Week: Motherhood – Aunties of the heart, our “other” mothers

“Women without children are also the best of mothers, often, with the patience, interest, and saving grace that the constant relationship with children cannot always sustain. Women who are not mothering their own children have the clarity and focus to see deeply into the character of children webbed by family. A child is fortunate who feels witnessed as a person, outside relationships with parents by another adult.” ― Louise Erdrich

Theme of the Week: Motherhood – Estranged From My Children, Alienated From Myself

regret I was a child who hadn’t been loved, and who had had no family relations of love and intimacy. So I probably thought to myself that, finally, I was going to have a child and would have this wonderful unconditional loving relationship.

But this child was his mother’s victim, I was a totally incompetent mother, because I, myself, was an abused child from a problematic…

FoodFic Look at "The Here and Now"

April 23rd just came and went. Now, for me that didn’t mean a whole lot – soccer practice for one kid, baseball for the other, baked haddock for dinner in-between.

Daylight Saving (Slaving) Time

I’m sorry folks but I am going to lay it on the line: I HATE Daylight Saving Time. Why in the world would we simple-minded humans think we are smart enough to mess with the sun’s time?

 

When I was a kid I thought having an extra hour in the evenings to play outside was wonderful, but now as an adult that extra hour only adds to the days workload. Not to mention the change messes up my sleep pattern. For those of us who are creatures of habit this is a very stressful time. In…

What Health And Safety Risks Do Birthing Livestock Pose To Pregnant Women?

Some personal injury claims involve pregnant women who have come into contact with animals, such as sheep or other livestock, that are giving birth or have just given birth. These animals can carry infections, which can put the health and safety of pregnant women and their unborn children at risk.

Horseshit, elections, and drive-by idiots

 

 

I was thinking of horseshit this morning. Back in Portugal when I was a child there was plenty of horseshit on the streets from mules walking old farmers home after a long day.  Today I almost felt like I could smell it.

 

I am in America now, in a town made safe by politicians and law enforcement.  Children were crossing the torn up streets, blocked off on all ends by police barriers today, because tomorrow will emerge better streets, and better roads mean…
