Just Being Here Now

Being where I am, and not being where I’m not – that’s my recipe for living. You could call it mindfulness, total meditation or Zen. Whatever you call it, for me it is the only way I can function. And it isn’t easy, paying attention. It doesn’t matter whether I’m depressed, angry, ecstatically happy or…

Making A Home

I have memories. Memories of my Grandma Hattie, my Grandma Nannie, my mother Lucy, all women who made a home, fed their families, worked outside the home and did so with little or no money. My mother was born a week or so before the Stock Market crashed in 1929. She never knew what life…

Ridding the World of Evil

Where DOES evil come from? You can’t look anywhere in our society today and not feel the palpable, boiling, nasty, disgusting, horrendous, obnoxious EVIL that has overtaken it. When did human decency disappear? Why? I spend most of my time ignoring this world-confusion. I see it as an optical illusion, a chimera, not at all…

Rise Up

What the FUCK is going on with this country? When did our society start to implode? Right now, we have hit critical mass. There is no going back, only forward. I’ve been asking myself since 1991 what has happened to the decent country I grew up in. When did it become okay to trash talk…

Exodus Chapter 1

It’s been four years ……….. four years since the girls who are leaving us today, first arrived at Happy Shepherd Farm. It was called Poor Shepherd Farm back then. There was a lot of work, a dang lot of work, but there wasn’t a whole lot of green stuff, except for grass and weeds. Curious…

The Man of My Dreams

This man, this lovely, happy man, is my father. The man of my dreams, except that he certainly wasn’t a dream, but real. I can hardly describe my father, today, 20 years and some odd months after his death.  I only know that each day that comes, I think of something my dad would say…

Soul Despair

For once in my life, I am not reacting to what I am seeing on the news or the internet. I can’t. I just cannot get my head around this much hate in the world. It is making me physically ill. When I learned Thursday that Rush Limbaugh died, I was saddened. He was someone…

OFF FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND MESSENGER!

I’m done. I’ve swallowed all the anger I’m going to swallow. I thought when this started, the day after the election in 2016, that they would eventually stop. They did not. They got worse. Now we have ABC News telling people Trump supporters need to be “cleansed.” I knew this would happen. I waited for…

The Day After

We all know what happened yesterday. Or we think we do. Personally, I have no clue who entered the capitol. Supposedly they were Trump supporters, but I’m not convinced. Most Trump supporters don’t dress in drag or wear weird paint on their bodies. Trump supporters are normal people. I do know someone was murdered. If…

Keep the World Out – It’s Not Real

It’s true. What you see as “The World” is just a projected set of incidents coming from the minds of the collective. Not the TRUE Cosmic Consciousness, but the little, small, petty, angry, hateful and disgusting minds of the humans alive in the world today. Don’t participate. That’s all. you can do. Don’t get caught…
