  • Sick Night, New Stuff, and MGTOW/Incels

    I had a rough night. I woke up numerous times drenched in a cold sweat, shivering, and nauseated. I was starting to worry I was coming down with something, but today I am feeling better, so not sure what was going on. I guess we’ll see how the day goes. I did get some stuff […]

  • I Don’t Owe Anyone Anything

    Yesterday I had rather a bit of a breakthrough moment.

I’m not going to go into exact specifics of what I personally believe, although I will say that […]

  • Political Posturing and Endless Arguing Do No Good

    As I watch the massive amount of political posturing and relentless fighting come across my Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages daily, I get sick of all the mudslinging, unfair attacks and hateful commentary that accomplish absolutely nothing. I’m not saying that it is wrong to have political ideas and feelings or to stand up for […]

  • A Sad Tribute to Paul Laurence Dunbar

    Last weekend my husband and I visited the Paul Laurence Dunbar House here in Dayton, Ohio. Being a poet myself I have wanted to check out the historical site for a while. When we arrived, I was happy to see quite a few others there, including several kids. I noticed that we were the only […]
