I've been saying this to several people lately. "If it ain't broke don't try to fix it!" I feel like people around me are jittery and wanting to mess things up that are perfectly fine. In terms of my own surroundings, things are floating along peacefully and productively. It's hard to avoid...
The Red Lion A friend’s toddler pulls a toy around my kitchen island. Turning away, I look out the window into the anemic afternoon light. Shifting my gaze, to an amaryllis sittting on my table top, I admire how the sun brightens the vibrant green stalk. My white-faced hound flaps his...
Jesus, I'm just trying to write a new blog entry and I'm clicking all over the place. Bingo! i FOUND IT, but (capt- fuckers) I can't tell you how. I'm having a hard time- hahaha! Isn't that what blogs are for? The first line... the second line... who knows, but it's an anonymous place to...
I am so disgusted today by the circus of the Judiciary Committee Hearings regarding the allegations of Judge Kavenough sexually assaulting Dr. Ford. I know that this is an extremely complicated situation, but I wish the senate could have avoided these public hearings. Dr. Ford didn't want to...

Red, think of me as you drive all those miles back to your childhood. Think of me, sweetly. You will inhale the soar stench of modern realty on the NJ Turnpike. Please forget me then. When I cross down into the Hudson River Valley I will remember my old lover. A writer of past years, a...
I have been home for 2 years and want to go back to work. I can't keep sitting in the house stress free. I have skills- I can work with the special ed children. I sometimes want to slam the computer keys out of frustration when I think about the idea of many women still having to sacrifice...
The first few days in May, before the leaves sprout on the branches and the sun is hot, leave one feeling as if in a place of disequilibrium. One might feel great joy at the anticipation of seeing a field of emerald, but confusion at sitting in the shade of leafless tree branches. The shadow...
Amidst all the hurricanes and protesting going on here in the US, I am glad to be around kids, as frustrating as they are. My kid came out to me before bed with a moose puppet and proceeded to pull a marble out of the puppet's nose and have the moose puppet eat the marble. Because I have the...
What the hell are these things? I know that they can be particularly bad around horses, but we don't have any near our house. We live in the woods in a deer sanctuary! Hahaha! They are brutal. They orbit your head and then try to bite. It's been raining a lot, so it feels like there are...
I realize that this is one of those big ideas that 18 year olds think about and I probably have no business wasting peoples time writing about it- but as I am currently working in a job that leaves me with ample time to read and I guess think, so I started to think about this idea anyway. As I...
I went to a party last night and meet an older fellow that was telling me too much information, after becoming adequately bombed. Anyway, he is divorced of twenty years and has 2 children. After his divorce, he has had many "lovers" as he put it. He then proceeded to tell me that he was in a...
Well, after 7 years of going to work everyday to a place that made me feel anxious and poorly valued, I finally resigned. I performed at a proficient to above proficient level, so it is a shame that I felt harassed, when generally I was given constructive feed-back. I have always received...
This is what I wrote in reply to this post. Is the forum expectation that you write more? I got PMed by a moderater stating I need to say more in the Writer's Workshop. I was quite surprised, but maybe I am missing the boat here...
