Soon Enough Gone

One day, and soon enough I think, these eyes will close one last time.Until then, they’ll see only beauty, for choice alone is mine.One day, and soon enough, this heart will beat one last sweet rhythm,but until then I will love this life, for courage leads to wisdom. Though now is truly all there is and time is but illusion,It seems like days and years are passing, which leads to confusion.So in this moment, as it is, I’ll rest without protectionLoving me is love enough, with kindness and affection. ...more

Wild Alien Mystic Seeks Same

I wrote this profile for a dating website last year, but took it down because I was getting too much attention from guys who, I think, were focusing on one paragraph towards the end.  You'll know which one when you get there.  Now I post it here as a note to the Universe:  "This is what I want.  Thank you for bringing it to me." Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to read what I have to say about myself and the relationship I intend to co-create with some awesome man in the immediate future. ...more

What Women Want

I believe that in the heart of every woman is a profound desire to trust a man so deeply that she can surrender completely to him.  Not being a man, I can’t be sure that a man wants that, but don’t they?  Doesn’t every man want a woman who will surrender completely to him?  It’s a perfect setup really.  Both genders play different roles in order to end up on opposite sides of the same situation....more

Foreclosures: Fairness vs. "The Law"

I am being evicted and forced to move again, because the banks have stolen my landlord’s house.   Truly.  When I share this, sometimes people ask:  “Well, did they make their payments?” – a question which reflects a degree of ignorance that is at the heart of a great injustice, and a serious misunderstanding amongst people in our country. I am compelled to write about it....more
Very well stated.  Excellent blog.  The fact that 800 Billion went to the bastards that caused ...more

On the Power of Words and Speech Acts

When you are walking with a friend and you say “I see a hummingbird,” your statement is not in itself the act of seeing, is it?  In this case the words are a description of something that just happened - an act, performed with your eyes in concert with your attention, brain, nervous system, and a set of unconscious agreements you have with the rest of the world about what we call a hummingbird and what we call seeing. ...more

Internet Dating Advice for Men from an Aging Single Girl

If you’re a guy, you might think that telling a woman on an internet dating site that you are excited to get to know her and you think she might be “the one” would light her up, right?  Wrong!  What lights up are the flashing red lights.While I’d love a forever partner with all the qualities important to me who thinks I’m the best thing that ever happened to him - Who doesn’t want that?  - I want it to be real!  That is to say I want to be known for who I am before someone makes those declarations.  ...more

Notes from an Aging Single Girl

The first time I experienced the sixties I was a lot younger.   Truthfully, I’m having more fun in MY sixties than I did in THE sixties.  I worry less and appreciate more, but after 14 years, I’ve had enough of being single.  Life is too awesome to not share with someone special!...more
@tamarama Thanks so much for taking the time to say so - hope you enjoy all the blessings of a ...more

Buying Into Poisoning Your Family Because it's Cheaper than Real Food?

Some argue that it’s cheaper to feed a family fast or factory farmed “foods” than nutrient rich, organically grown real food.   If you believe that, try saying it this way instead: “It’s easier to poison my family and make them sick than it is to find ways to keep them alive and healthy.”  How does that feel?Now consider this: Where there’s a will, there’s a way. ...more
Thank you for this! My niece is in this place. She says she can't afford to buy organically, ...more

Too Close to Home(less)

No one ever wants to say, “I’m almost homeless.”  Nor hear it from a friend or family member.  It evokes a barrage of unwanted emotions for both speaker and listener, which may include pity, shame, guilt, shock, disgust, and assorted judgments.  All are expression of fear: if it can happen to them, you could be next, right?  Nobody wants to look at that, so the fear usually dresses as pity or judgment first. ...more
