This time of year is very special to me as it is the time where I join many other like-minded people who contribute to a charity dear to my heart. A private luncheon is put on to thank those who are large contributers to a childrens hospital. All proceeds from the sale of completely decorated trees and ALL gifts under the tree go to supporting additional needs. These trees could have tvs, trips, mopeds, etc included in the auction/purchase; we're talking thousands of dollars here. I have…Continue

In the political arena when folks are running for one position in our government , it can get very bad in their slamming each other in public and to the communications people. The internet has become the new wild wild west with no thought .
One issue I have with the dirty play in politics , are the…Continue
to do with Gender.
It is solely a Person to Person experience.
You don't love your wife because she's a woman, and you don't love your husband because he's a man.
You don't love your same sex female partner because she's a woman, and you don't love your same sex male partner because he's…Continue
FLASH DANCE for me
Some how it seems th worst things happen in life when you may be in a hurry. When in reality the plane is leaving, it's too late anyways. Take time in life, be patient, slow doqn breath, do not be radical ith quick decisions, consider that what you have in life is equal to what you, think you should or would like instead. The only answer to this question is like and be satisfied with your life, it's worth what it is today. Cherish it days are ending so fast. Get in the slow lane, stay there.…Continue
Inspired by Leonard Shlain's "Alphabet versus. the Godess."
Together at our river's source
Two streams join with equal force
And then naturally find their course
Through all the froth and the churning
First comforting then harranging
Nature forever Yining and Yanging…

Disclaimer: This ended up being six times as long as I thought it would be and about a 100x more sappy with equal parts hopeless devotion-soundingy. Read at your own risk.
It's just a bit after five. I am wide awake (well sort of, I am making a squinty eye at the laoptop). My Xanax kicked in this afternoon and that is when I had my sleep. I woke up about 10sh this/last night (whichever. I cannot be bothered). Now, I have mentioned in my blog and…Continue
-Sigh- It is blatantly obvious that I am not going to get over my vlogbrother or nerdfighting addiction any time soon. I think it is because I do have such admiration for people who contemplate what it is that we can do not only to make our own lives suck less but that in general make the world suck less. This is something that has been on my mind a lot since I got the news this morning that my greatly beloved Uncle finally gave up the fight and crossed over.
It's shitty. I…Continue
It was a little after six, surreal time really I felt as though I'd just gone to sleep when my mother sat on the bed and shook my shoulder gently. I didn't want to wake up, I was having a lovely dream about sitting in Dean's garden with a bit of English sunshine while I smoked a cigarette (I don't even smoke anymore) and read poems from this pocket edition of W. H. Auden... but news of death cannot wait; not even for happy safe place dreams.
At first I mumbled something…Continue
Having fallen in love with Chicago in one evening and a morning last year, the point in returning for a long weekend in May was to discover more. The big surprise was the Art Institute. Quite simply it was one of the best art galleries I have ever visited. The collection of impressionists and modern works was mouth wateringly good - so good it blew apart the weekend schedule because we spent a whole day there! But good collections require good displays to come alive and the gallery presented…Continue
