Living in the Moment

Dani's Kern River Glass water

The absence of time against my pulsing

wrist is so curious to me…

 

Though nearly a year has passed the

delineations that mark its vacancy are

present still.

 

At first it was my plan to replace the

savvy trinket that has long fostered

the illusion of control over the hours passing…

 

But…life happened… as often it does, and I have

found myself instead re-defining my relationship

with time

Pie for Breakfast

20171231_131255

The toxic torrent of hatred, bigotry, misogyny, racism, class-ism, sexism, and all around buffoonery that dominates our news cycles is nearly more than I can bear.

A president (not my president) that makes a mockery of our nation, our democracy, and assaulting women makes me fear for my safety and consider options of flight.

The onslaught of long overdue allegations of sexual misconduct and assaults, criminal prosecutions, and the crash and burn career endings of predatory men in power give me hope for our future.

Rays of sun sparkle on small and large bouts of activism and resistance…

Alabama organized and exercised their constitutional right to vote to keep a known pedophile out of office. Some even voted against their own party because they knew it was the right thing to do.

The tide is turning…

Red to Blue…perhaps…

But I prefer a nice shade of Purple…

Compromising, loving and caring for the whole not just a few.

We are one race HUMAN and we need to

start acting like it!

Until then we must do what we can do,

And there’s always…Pie for Breakfast.

The Elephant in the Room

Male white privilege, (especially older) assumes rights not earned, rewarded, or inalienable.

Even a handshake, (seemingly innocuous to most) turns insidious when extended in lasciviousness where it is not warranted, or wanted, but insisted upon.

It’s enough to make one vomit!
