In writing this blog, I seek to bring out my inner Pollyanna and share with others those elements which make for the sunny side of life.
Consequently, this blog's contents tend to comprise topics which I'm passionate about (e.g., Hong Kong movies, travel experiences, museums, books, favorite eats, libations, and Arsenal football club) and/or can see the funny side of (e.g., linguistic foibles and cross-cultural mis-interpretations along with Hello Kitty and her ilk).
I'm crazy in love with the God that made me, and the hot, bald man He gave me. Our family is a backwards Oreo - a bunch of pasty white people, with a gorgeous black girl in the middle. Two of my kids have Tourette Syndrome. One also has OCD, and the third has food allergies! I finally got my nose pierced when I was 34. I'm one of the funkiest pastor's wives on the planet (if I do say so myself). I'm a pseudo-crunchy, child of the 80's, democrat/republican, God lovin', tree side-hugger, dance-on-the-sofa, flat-chested, guitar-playin', parental type.
I am gorgeous. I am art.
Welcome to my schizophrenic blog that seeks to be all things to me. From infertility & miscarriage, to adoption. From feminism, black politics, righteous ranting, humor, recovery and addiction, to my passion for knitting. This is my home. I hope you enjoy your visit.
The moral of life is: There is no fucking plan!
Was anyone else discouraged after Oprahâ€™s Town Hall Meeting ?
I think there plenty of us that are equally outraged about the portrayal of African American women in popular culture . Now we need to get organized. It is time to DEFUND THE WAR ON BLACK WOMEN! Period. End of discussion. This isnâ€™t about artistic expression. This is about capitalism. People have a right to basically say whatever they want to, but I donâ€™t have to subsidize it in any way. Hence the term â€œstarving artist.â€
