Aries New Moon On Sunday!

We start off the weekend under the influence of the Pisces Moon. Sensitive, mystical, Neptune ruled, Water sign Pisces highlights our caring and empathetic side while also awakening any escapist tendencies under the surface. Stay grounded, make note of any dreams that can be used in the creative process and be kind and compassionate. (But remember, if a story, a promise, a gift seems too good to be true – it probably is) Stay real. Next up, energetic Aries!...more

I did not see that coming.

I'm kind of going back and forth on the whole GOOP "conscious uncoupling" thing. I mean, obviously, it is terrible in like a thousand ways, and yet, it's always pretty bad when people get divorced. Isn't it? I don't know. I've never been divorced. I have friends and family who have divorced, and even when their marriages were terrible the divorce was still hard. The aftermath was still un-fun. So. How to feel about a sanctimonious pill who is getting divorced but can't even use the word, because it's so what? Pedestrian? I don't know. I don't know. ...more

Another excerpt from my novel, Wild Hunt

 Below is an excerpt from my debut novel, Wild Hunt.  Most girls on the island would be happy to be barefoot and pregnant to some fisherman for the rest of their lives, but Miriam wanted to see the world. If that was a sin, then she hoped she had a nice seat next to old Scrotch himself. ...more

Brief defense of Divergent

In Defense of Divergent Well the newest fad in Young Adult Literature is officially underway with it's movie coming out last Friday. Divergent by Veronica Roth is a book set in...wait for it... a dystopian future that kinda, sorta, really sucks. Society has been divided into groups, each with a different purpose and job and the protagonist is a spunky, proactive young woman who defies the rules of this controlling society. Is this sounding familiar to anyone else? Oh YEA! That Hunger Games thing.......more

Kim, Kanye And Vogue: Betrayal Or Brilliant?

I'm not the person to ask about the history of Vogue, or its editorial mission.  What I do know I mostly got from watching the "Devil Wears Prada."  I do read it from time to time, although reading it isn't really a fair description either; it's more like I turn the glossy pages oooing at clothes I'll never get to wear because they are astronomically expensive and appropriate for absolutely no event in my life....more

Weekend: Moon in Fun Sag, Then Ambitious Cap

Due to the Moon position in the 9th sign of the Zodiac, Friday and Saturday presents us with cheerful and adventurous possibilities. Jupiter ruled Sagittarius, which is a Fire sign, gives the ok to be upbeat, enthusiastic with expectations of good things.  (The champagne glass is ½ full, not ½ empty sort of attitude.) Take a short trip, spread some cheer, learn something new. Smile....more

How I Learned to Love Retro-Style Media like Instagram and Animated Gifs

Sometimes I feel like an old fuddy-duddy when it comes to new technology, which is ridiculous since I work in Digital Media and have a Masters Degree in said field....more

Happy Birthday, Barbie?

Barbie turned 55 this week. I’m not sure if I’ll send a card to her. We were really never the best of friends. She appeared in my house along with a friend or two but we just didn’t connect. Perhaps I was too busy riding my banana seat bike and getting my jeans muddy to notice her. She just didn’t grab my interest....more
Great post! I so agree about Barbie. Not any girl's real friend. My granddaughter played with ...more
