No Compassion For Anyone But Themselves

Has compassion left the building? Does everyone with skin any shade darker than white pose a threat to us? Conservatives want President Obama to bomb ISIL, but have no answer when familes, desperate for safe haven, arrive at our border seeking asylum. I saw on the news last night a map of the country highlighting in red the states where governors have stood their ground, refusing to accept Syrian refugees. Wow. How tough are they....more

Do ANY Candidates Understand Cannabis?

When Presidential candidates speak, I barely listen anymore, even if I like the person. I had such hopes for our current President. I voted for him twice, and I thought that he would find a way to reschedule cannabis, but he hasn’t as of yet. Hillary supports rescheduling cannabis so that it can be researched. Evidently she doesn’t realize that this has already happened in other countries and in kitchens across the United States. Bernie seems interested in moving forward on some form of decriminalization, but I never hear actual truth from any of the candidates....more

I Confess: I've Used the "N" Word Before

I was going to write a blog post about how I catch myself being extremely negative and thinking I am totally worthless, and in my head, I’ll think, “Nigga, please.” Note: I would NEVER, EVER use this word to refer to another person.

Are Other Opinions Influencing the Way You Think?

Do you remember when you were in high school and their was always this one girl that made you second guess how you felt or what you thought?  Somehow as we grow up, this doesn't seem to change no matter how confident or assertive we are as individuals.  You tell yourself, it doesn't affect you, but in all reality, it does.  And many times, it's not necessarily your girlfriend, although it could be.  It might be your mother, your boyfriend, a co-worker......more

Counting Every Stroke

Counting All of My StrokesWhen hubby and I met in a Yahoo chat room called Golf, I kind of knew that golf would be a integral part of our relationship.  Golf was good for a while, he was always just a little better than me, enough to make me try hard to score lower than he did.  Back then, we counted every stroke.   ...more
