I've been struggling to describe how I am feeling since I heard of Hon. Ginsburg's passing Friday evening. It's hard to explain to someone feeling a heavy sense of grief over the passing of a person I have never met. This person, however, has had a direct effect on my life and how I live… Continue reading On the Passing of RBG
MASKING: IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU
https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/09/12/north-dakota-south-dakota-lead-u-s-in-covid-19-growth-as-republican-governors-reject-mask-requirements/?fbclid=IwAR2g9eYM4M0bGNGA04hUxzk0rMaeaIPAMoMgACJd0cH0H8Tr_b0vTJ0O8VI OK. I’ve been thinking about this a lot, this business about “personal liberties.” First? It has been settled law in this country that liberties are subject to all sorts of limits: 1: speech: time, place and manner restrictions, prohibition on incitement 2. Search and seizure: more exceptions than I can count. Google "plain view"… Continue reading MASKING: IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU
I’m still… alive?
I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything here. Truth be told, with everything that has been going on in the world, I have been in survival mode physically and emotionally and there have been no words that I could say that would in any way touch what I have… Continue reading I’m still… alive?
It's been a minute since I have posted anything here. Shortly after Christmas, I unexpectedly found out that I was pregnant. I was actually going in to get and IUD placed when I found out! I was super excited, but scared about what that would mean for our family. Then, a couple of weeks later,… Continue reading Away
One of the prompts that I missed during #NaBloPoMo was the word Brave. I've been thinking about this for some time, and I have a fair amount to say about this. Anxiety, depression, society, womanhood in America, and my other garden variety soft-spots and neuroses often make me feel weak and scared. On the worst… Continue reading Brave
I'm not known for being an overly secretive person. Part of my growth has been to work on acceptance of myself and others, and to reject shame. I also find that sharing the less than perfect parts of myself has been a way that I have made deep connections with others. But there are parts… Continue reading NaBloPoMo#24: Secrets
Yes, I skipped #22. I wasn't feeling it. I have several hopes right now that I cling to: I hope the buyout of our senior partner will be decided soon. Its been a shit show. I hope that things with my marriage will get better. I hope that I will find a way to better… Continue reading NaBloPoMo#23: Hopes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz79ZYo0erQ I couldn't resist.... Aloneness is something that I struggle with mightily. On one hand, I am a chronic anxiety sufferer with strong abandonment issues. Feeling alone is the worst feeling in the world for this part of me. Being alone validates the awful voices in my mind that tell me no one wants me… Continue reading NaBloPoMo#21: Alone
Radiance versus Ordinary Light By: CARL PHILLIPS Meanwhile the sea moves uneasily, like a man whosuspects what the room reels with as he rises into itis violation—his own: he touches the bruises at eachshoulder and, on his chest, the larger bruise, star-shaped,a flawed star, or hand, though he remembers no hands,has tried—can't remember . . . … Continue reading NaBloPoMo#20: Hardships
NaBloPoMo #19: Body Image
Yea... I know. I'm behind af on my posts. Life. My body image is conflicted at best. Until the recent BoPo movement I have never felt good about my body. You see, I am not this: Photo by Christopher Campbell on Unsplash I am more like this: Fat phobia is real and it was taught to me young… Continue reading NaBloPoMo #19: Body Image
