LOVE DEFINED

What an interesting weekend, action-packed!   I love being spontaneously busy. The spontaneity helps keep my mind focused on creativity which allows me to let go of the trivial concerns that can block the creative process. I talk about love all the time.  I write poetry focused on love.  I even created a podcast to share …

“QUEEN OF SOUL”

The passing of Aretha Franklin has surprisingly affected me on such an emotional level.  I was not ready for this flood of emotion.   I was not ready to re-live my childhood and experience the full essence of my mother.  My mother embodied the same unapologetic persona that Aretha did. Aretha Franklin was much like a …

THIS THING CALLED LOVE

At times this thing called love is so perplexing.  We are born to love.  Some don't get the love they need in the early stages of life and that lack of love affects the way they love for a lifetime.

Motherhood

Dinner with the girls.  Actually, not girls any longer. We are women, deep in our thirties, forties, and fifties.  Sitting around the table are lifelong friends, friends of a friend, and some just met for the first time.  If you were looking on you would've never known. There was a feeling of camaraderie at the …

YOUR TERMS

Love on your own terms. What does that mean?  How can one love on their own terms in today's society? There seem to be many rules on how to love and how to express that love. Everyone is a critic and judgemental. Does social media have an influence on our love relationships?  Of course, it …

Reunite!

A few days ago I was furious and deep in my feelings.  I'm not so sure if those feelings have subsided or if I've learned to better manage my furiousness.  I cannot fathom how we the United States of America, the strongest most advanced country on the planet could possibly be in a situation that …
