One day my soul just opened up I felt this overwhelming pride what I was…

Place Your Bets

“Well this low down bitchin’ got my poor feet a itchin’. Can’t you see the deuce is still wild? Baby, I can’t stay, you got to roll me and call me the tumblin’ dice.”  Rolling Stones I look at how long it has been since I updated this journal and it makes me uncomfortable, but then I think about all I…

Springing Forward

I hate time changes. Why…why must we do it?  That aside… There is a section of Google Images that allows you to filter according to parameters such as “available for non-commercial use without modification.” Some pretty cool stuff came up when I looked for a banner for this week’s column: March 21 is a year since Eric “retired” from…

She was describing a situation where she had suffered a falling out with a dear friend and told me she had cried to the friend saying, “I don’t know what I…

Thank You GPS

It is not yet the end of February and already, this has been a rockin’ year. Last year was a brutal battle fighting (most with myself, as these things are wont to do) for my own sovereignty and creating space on which I could stand. I have been falling down a great deal over the past several years (likely…

Trying Not to Be a Sisy

I originally set up this post on December 13, 2015, which was over a month ago and since then, I have tried several times to get back to it and give it the due it deserves. Perhaps this time, I will make it through. Like for so many others, 2015 was a really rough year. Backing up a bit,…

What Feeds You?

I woke up with morning with words in my head, not the usual song lyrics or dream remnant, but words without attachment to anything in particular. “Even a rat will eventually stop pushing the lever that shocks him and will find the lever that feeds him.” Damn.

Focus in the Dark

On Samhain (October 31) each year, a practice our group adds to our ritual is that we go into the dark earth labyrinth where a large mirror is propped on a table. In candlelight, we look into the Mirror of Truth and then pull a Tarot card from the table where they are spread in front of the mirror….
