Let’s Try Tumbling

I wrote a while back about a dance class in which I had enrolled Finn.  In the end, it wasn’t a good fit.  He went for a few weeks, and then we dropped out for a few reasons.  Although it was a class specifically for kids with special needs, I was never completely comfortable with […]

Buying a Better Body

So, I had two different strangers fondle my boobs today.  True story. The first was a cosmetic surgeon.  I mentioned a while back that I hope to have some work done – namely, a boob job and a tummy tuck.  I was serious. I’m not interested in criticism.  I know it’s a controversial choice to […]

I Don’t Have to Give a Shit Anymore.

This has been something of a revelation for me – a personal awakening of sorts. I don’t have to give a shit anymore. For a good part of my adult life, I’ve heard myself say things like, “I refuse to be a slave to my past,” and “Once you become a grownup, you’re responsible for […]

Racism, revisted

I know – I must be a glutton for punishment.  This topic, maybe more than any other topic I’ve known, has ignited passions in the people around me.  The whole thing, frankly, has left me saddened and disturbed.  I can’t stop thinking about Ferguson, and even more, I can’t stop thinking about the conversations I’ve […]

Thoughts on Racism

I’ve had some thoughts swirling around in my head with everything that’s been happening in Ferguson, and having a hard time putting them together coherently.  I will say that I have not followed the news closely; I tend to avoid coverage of anything from most news outlets because it’s all so depressing and/or sensationalized.  Pretty […]
