Just Try It

Just try it…being nice first. Just try a smile or listen and say “I understand” instead  of just  talking over somebody else.

Do a favor for someone without being asked to do it. And don’t expect anything in return.

See and feel how different it feels from being indifferent or even cold to another.…

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…

My Go Topless Day article, about bare breasts and feminism

My latest for Medium is "On Go Topless Day, a look at topless activism and the law" (subtitle: "Should women defend our right to bare our breasts in public?") and I will once again ask that if you like it, click "recommend" at the bottom. I hope this piece leads to more writing for them, and the recommends help. The article is about today being Go Topless Day, women who've been arrested for going topless , and a look at topless…

Silent Night

It's hard to understand or remember the exact moment when Prince Charming began to disrespect me.  Was it the first time he told me I was stupid and my opinion was worthless?  Was it when he slapped me that first time? Or that afternoon in June when he raped me on the floor of the kitchen in his mother's home? Was it when he called me a fat pig, a dumb bitch or a stupid whore?  Or the time he told me my feelings were not valid?…

I was a panelist at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books when an obviously perturbed woman stood up in the back of the huge UCLA auditorium and directed a question my way.


“How can you write legal procedurals when you’re not a lawyer?” she demanded.


 “I sleep with one,” I…

Maria's Random Rants - The Problem With Desire

It’s a hard thing to want something, and I mean really want something, with all of your heart, and every bit of your being. So much so you can barely contain the elation in your voice when you talk about it, nor the flutter in your belly attesting to both extremes of excitement and apprehension. You find yourself struggling to keep the knot in your throat from rising just thinking about it, dreaming on it.

Yup, desire can do that to you.

Twenty years  of…

Discrimination Lives: The Supreme Court Gives Wal-Mart the Win in Dukes Gender Discrimination Class Action Case

Today the Supreme Court sounded the death knell for Dukes v. Wal-Mart, the class action lawsuit accusing Wal-Mart of paying and promoting women less than similarly- or less-qualified men. To protect corporations from having to do more to prevent gender discrimination than pop a few politically correct paragraphs into the employee handbook, the Supreme Court resorted to a belabored procedural argument that incentivizes corporations to do as little as possible to prevent discrimination.…

"I Regret Not Finishing Law School" at The Gloss

I contributed to The Gloss's "I Regret Everything" series with my essay on why I regret not finishing law school.

But the part I do regret, and think about every time I log in to Sallie Mae’s website, is that I never paused long enough to allow myself the room to truly grasp that I could exit gracefully, and to the tune of much less than the eventual $150,000 (approximately) tuition and board,… Continue

Earlier when I started this entry, the title was going to be "dismay: character sheets".  

That was about 3 hours ago.

I never got a chance to have my online emo self pity-party because Husband decided to start a conversation with me about a video game deal he was looking at.


You must understand; this was by no means a bad thing!  I love Husband dearly, and like helping him with these things if I can wrap my mind around the technical financials of the new deal…

"Excellent advice. I find sometimes I have fallen purposely into gray areas in parts of my memoir - to not spill all the beans at once. I have withheld takeaways and some reflection until a better time is warranted, after more of the pieces have been…"
