“There is no merit in ideological rigidity.” Angela Davis “If your voice held no power, they wouldn’t try to silence you.” unknown The election season is just about on top of us. As if we haven’t got ENOUGH stuff going on, now we’re going to be inundated with campaign slogans, hateful commercials, boring debates (although […]Read More The Fire is Getting Hotter….
Gaslighting takes on varying forms; it’s the manipulation of perceptions, twisting of meanings of words and claims that “you” are being difficult or wrong, or it’s “you” causing whatever issue it is that “you” are having with the other person. It’s not pretty, attractive or inviting. It’s intended to place all blame on you and […]Read More The Rabbit Hole
It’s another Monday morning, July 13th, 2020 and many – no ALL – of us, large and small, old and young, are freaking DONE with this Covid-19 pandemic! In the beginning of this – which our government tells us was mid-March – we had fun exchanging photos of our stocked up snack supply and mountains […]Read More Covid Caving 2020
I watched quite a bit of the Global Pride 2020 and saw the ads for World Pride 2021 in Copenhagen Denmark…wow, wouldn’t it be so cool to go! I attended World Pride and the Gay Games years ago when it was held in NYC and it was an incredible experience. That was when the United […]Read More Sunday Musings
I had to do some paperwork over the phone today and got asked about how I identify, as in gender identification. I’ve heard it before, but this time for some reason it was different.

Our basic survival and freedom are threatened by several things, without survival and freedom nothing else in our lives will matter […]Read More Watching This Unfold
What a week…we hit the 100,000 dead milestone, Minneapolis cops killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck…symbolic?…you have to wonder. Then some crazy white chick in NYC was filmed almost choking her dog to death and accusing a black bird watcher of threatening her all for him asking her to put the dog on […]Read More Angst and Agony Across America
60 days of chaotic weirdness, unlike any other 60 day period in any of our lives. Trying to figure out what we should each be doing that is safe or not safe with NO leadership or guidance from the very top echelon – the US President – is a challenge all by itself. 60 Days […]Read More 60 Days
Ahh…another day of physical distancing coming to a cozy ending. I’m a bit tired tonight from being very active all day. It’s 8:45pm and I’m just now sitting down with a cup of coffee and the intent to write a bit, read a bit and plan the next couple of day projects. Since we are […]Read More …And DAYS of thoughts…
Sunday rolls around again…they seem out of context these days during our “stay-at-home” lifestyle. I slept late today, got out of bed around 10ish to feed the beasts. They were even groggy and sleepy. I think the slow pace we are stuck in right now is exacting it’s toll on all of us creatures, human […]Read More Sunday and I’m A Bit Off Kilter
