I can think of few things that throw me into a rabid dissertation like ‘the other woman’ scandals. And here is yet another.
Our revered CIA Director, General David Petraeus, another victim of RDS (restless dick syndrome) will rise above and probably run for public office; check under the bus and you’ll find Paula Broadwell.
There is no masculine word counter-part for ‘mistress’ and I’m wondering why the National Organization for Women hasn’t offered one up to the Urban…Continue

Some writers adopt the reading, “thy wife Jezebel” and so regard her as an actual person, a false prophetess who sought to seduce the saints in the church in…Continue

The hand creates magic- whether with a drum, paintbrush, or ritual tool.
Hands bring the unseen into the realm of the seen.
-Joanna Powell Colbert
I had the most insightful conversation with a close friend of mine the other week. I love her so much. We share common struggles along with some tough mother and relationship issues.
