WANTS, WISHES, DEEDS

It's Saturday and the weather is oh, so fine.  The floor is finally vacuumed and washed.  I am sitting here, empty of words.  I am flexing my fingers and wiggling my toes.  I am trying, giving it a go.I always go to bed full of resolve - of doing this, doing that.  But in the morning, I am deflated, not feeling up to par.  So then, I feel guilty.  I give myself a silent talk, trying to drum up some energy....more

Date Night

You know, it really doesn't have to be fancy. It needn't involve classy restaurants or expensive tickets or getting dressed up to the nines. And it doesn't necessarily require a lot of pre-planning or sweating the details. It's about setting time aside to enjoy each other's company. ...more

POINTING OUT SIN and CONDEMNING

Usually I have the good sense to ignore self-righteous bad mouthing in comments but I slipped during the last couple of weeks.  Actually  I made some darn good points and clarified my believes during the exchanges , not that anyone was convinced.  In that sense, it was a complete  exercise in futility....more

When Women Succeed, America Succeeds

Earlier this year in February, there was an absolutely wonderful forum hosted at Mills College that addressed economic diversity especially as it relates to women. There were several political figures and women of power who participated in the forum. The most beautiful thing that came out of that forum was simply that “when women succeed, America succeeds”....more

Polka-Dots Tops with Checked Pants?

Until I grew stronger in my convictions, I was often embarrassed by polka-dotted tops and checked pants as my kids ran for the school bus . To soothe my ego, I really was tempted to phone the kindergarten teacher , declaring that my children’s independence was more important to me than dressing a fashion plate. Basically I wanted to yell, ” I did not pick out her clothes today!”...more
