Life

This is category is Life and Life is messy. Here you will find words, pictures, thoughts, and observations on life. Anything that doesn’t neatly fit under my other categories ends up here. Sometimes it might be a piece of sage advice, some crazy rant or even a hormone surge. Take it for what it is.  It might be a random thought I have in the night. It could be something just freely pouring out of my head that might not make sense.  It could be a very well researched essay with foot notes and everything. Who knows? Life is unpredictable.  All you can do is hold on and enjoy the ride.  Maybe you will learn something interesting along the way.

There’s a Dead Body in the Street

Insomnia Hangover No Alcohol Added

  Today I am not firing on all cylinders.  As a matter of fact, I am misfiring at best. I feel like my head is in a different plane of existence; one in which all rational thought is unattainable; where… Continue Reading →

Tangible Assets Versus Overhead in Nonprofits

One of the most important things I tried to get funders to understand was that tangible assets did not make a nonprofit run.  Computers, paper, books, markers do not make a community center run.  It is wonderful to find funders… Continue Reading →

Warning! Danger Will Robinson!

When I read the Just Jot January prompt for today, the first thing that popped into my head was the robot on Lost in Space.  Lost in Space was one of my favorite shows as a child. So I went… Continue Reading →

Time

I have noticed that the older I become the faster time moves. I remember when I was young it seemed like days lasted forever and I couldn’t wait to be a grownup. Well, being a grownup is not all that… Continue Reading →

Halloween Blogger Tag

What’s your favorite Halloween movie? This is my favorite family friendly Halloween movie. What age did you stop trick-or-treating? Stop? Nobody told me I had to stop at a certain age. Even now after the kids come in the neighborhood… Continue Reading →

Memories ‘Round Here #BehindtheBlogger

  The prompt for behind the blogger today is ‘Round Here.  ‘Round Here can be anything and nothing but I am supposed to use this prompt to tell something” real” about myself.  Something that the readers of this blog would… Continue Reading →

I Put The Fem in Feminist

Children are NOT Collateral Damage

When did it become accepted that children are collateral damage? When did the powers sit down and say children are expendable? In what back room, boardroom, golf course, country club gathering did everyone agree that it was okay to sacrifice… Continue Reading →

Why I Love Real Books

I grew up loving books, real books, with their smudged ink on dog-eared pages held together by bent withering spines. The library was where I wanted to be. Surrounded by all the books I could ever want to read. I… Continue Reading →
