I won’t get mad to your face, but I will crucify you in the shower- so there!

I'm fake. Not all the time. Just some of the time. Mostly, I'm fake about my anger. If you've ever seen those flashbacks on TV or the movies where someone flashes a mental picture of them hurling said irritant out the window and then you come back and see calm composure - that would be [...]

Some days I wish for good aim

I do try to be honest with you guys. As much as I'd like to say I have I have it all together, I don't always. Yesterday was such a day. Yesterday, I wanted to yell and scream and throw things. I didn't. But I wanted to. And yet I know, His mercies are new [...]

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame Ted Talk

A Subversive Revolution

This is my last resolve quote. I've sat on it for quite a long time. I looked up subversive and it doesn't sound like a nice person at all. It sound's rebellious. I'm not rebellious. (okay so that's a total lie.) And then I remembered, I said "tits" on a Facebook Post and I'm a [...]

Walking each other home: Book review of Stitches by Anne Lamott

 "My time is limited. I'm dyingyou know. Not that anybody cares." Sigh. It is one of those conversations where I catch myself with one hand on the receiver and one hand on the ground so that the Earth's trajectory - and her self pity - doesn't send me hurling into space. "Are you going to die [...]
