Dreams: Flying and Personal Power

Dreams are usually specific to each individual encountering them. It is quite uncommon for two people to have an almost exact same dream, but it is also true that there are some common themes connecting different dreams that people have....more

An American Tragedy

What else can you possible call it? With respect to Theodore Dreiser,  no fiction writer could dream up this mess.  It would be a great story, if only it weren’t real. I didn’t intend to write about it…but I also didn’t think John Edwards could sink any lower than he already had.  I love words but I don’t have any to describe him.  Watching 20/ 20 hit me wherever is below below the belt.   And maybe I feel this personally because I know the fragility of someone with cancer....more

A Man with Money & Power? Not What Turns Me On.

I was reading the comments on some post about the David Letterman extortion situation the last time I read it. I didn't bookmark where, but it was your general run-of-the-mill stereotypical comment about how women are attracted to money and power.

Thinking about it, I realized that I find money and power, UNattractive. ...more

Moods. ...more

Stand strong and stay powerful

Do you ever find yourself saying any of these phrases? • “I'm sorry, but I think...” • “I'm sorry you have to do this, but...” • “I'm sorry to bother you with...” • “I'm sorry, this might not be exactly what you wanted...” ...more

 I would also recommend it to men, and that sometimes would include, ahem, me. ...more

Love, sex, money and social change in America

The self is not something one finds. It's something one creates. "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (Woody Allen, 2008)  is a fun and funny satire on America's mainstream culture. Love, sex, female/male identity in search of the meaning of life, and the possibility of passion. It is definitely just a beginning of the journey. Young, we just start scratching the surface of who we are. ...more

Do Women's Gains Make Women's History Month Ho-Hum?

I'm finding Women's History Month this year greeted with yawns. That could mean women and women's contributions are becoming everywhere recognized as integral to political and social history.  If so, it's not yet a publicly acknowledged fact. No surprise there. ...more

Walk in the power of the name of Jesus
