What Women Really Want On Valentine's Day

Do women really want a big box of expensive chocolates, a dozen red roses and a bunch of singing Gringos serenading her at the restaurant on Valentine’s day? Not really. Well, OK then, someone like me may think the Gringos were pretty fun, and generally none of us are adverse to chocolates and flowers,…

The new biography of the world's most famous amnesiac, HM, is an inspiring, entertaining and informative read

'Why Sir, if you have but one book with you upon a journey let it be a book of science. When you read through a book of entertainment, you know it, and it can do no more for you, but a book of science is inexhaustible'.

This quote of Samuel Johnson’s was recorded by his Scottish friend, James Boswell, in his book, Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, published in 1785, a year after Johnson’s death.

Suzanne Corkin’s new biography of Henry Molaison, the man with no memory, is a…

The Terrible Love of War

The author James Hillman wrote a book a few years back entitled A Terrible Love of War. In it, he discusses the complexities and paradoxes of war in the human psyche. I was struck by how many of these same contradictions and brutalities described rape culture and the violence that exists within each of us. That which we consider relative peacetime is often anything but. This is why Hillman titles one section “War is Normal” and another “War is…

Color Of Broken Eyes

Color Of Broken Eyes

© Angeliad of Surazeus

2011 06 07

Ice glitters in a glass of water forlorn

if silver were true color of broken eyes

or nothing swallows hot milk of death

so she chokes and gasps for breath.

Bow rips across her violin heart soft

as feathers plucked from crippled swan

whose last song is smothered by hand

of iron doctor twisting wires ripped sharp.

Eighty-six girls in torn white gowns

stand staring at you… Continue

Mind Games

at our outset

a simple case

of product placement

often not nearly

as cunning as intended

because fascinated eyes

have been known to shine

as personal space

defines a relationship between

self-reflection and base desire

when catching oneself

before over-committing

along with a week's worth of

all black attire

practiced eyes

know the symbolism well

and its intent

and yet first valiant… Continue

Therapy Day

Bad news hits you in the pit of your stomach.  Your center of gravity shifts, the magnetic pull of the earth holding you fast to your seat.  It leaves you trembling, off-balance, dizzy.  Hands shake, gait is unsteady, your head swims. 

Some months ago, my latest helpful female therapist suggested I'd make greater progress with a male psychologist instead.  And in the interest of greater health and personal insight I nervously followed suit.  Once a week I sit in a stuffy basement… Continue

Therapists Can Be Wrong About Weight Issues

therapists are not always right about weight issues and weight loss 2 therapists need to be educated about size discrimination and fat acceptance Just because someone is a therapist doesn't mean they're always right. In fact, they can be downright wrong, especially when it comes to weight issues. Therapists are ordinary human beings, and they can be just as brainwashed by popular theories as the next person.

Popular theories about weight that are widely accepted as truth include:

Slavery in America’s Heartland? It’s a 21st Century Dirty Secret Affecting Girls as Young as 12.

Slavery is not dead in America. Human trafficking – forcing people to work against their will – is the second-largest criminal industry in the world; illegal sale of drugs is first. The money raised by trafficking girls for sex is used to purchase illegal drugs and guns, two commodities that bring in more money and wield more power for the men who possess them. The girls sold for sex don’t get any of the money they earn.

Don’t kid… Continue
