Something Pretty

As I wandered upstairs I found this stunning arrangement of flowers that Scott put together from the yard outside. That lead me on a merry journey around the house, snapping pictures of it as I tried to find the best way to show case such a lovely display. He put together something that wasn’t this overloaded collection of whimsy. It wasn’t something trying to push any event or agenda. The presentation was just a few branches, a strand or two from a bush just starting to blossom. As I gazed at it, the assortment filled my mind with images of […]

War in Ukraine

First and foremost, my heart, thoughts, and hope go out to all my friends who are involved in, or have loved ones, who are impacted by the terrible events happening in this evolving country. And that includes all of us who are left watching this tragic addition to our history that is unfolding in our world, especially in a time when these events should be below us. I can’t tell you how sad it hurts my heart to see people dealing with such a travesty when we really do have better things to focus on. When I was in high […]

Feelings of Dread

I’ve got another related topic I started somewhere in my drafts that relates to this latest verbal digest, but I wanted to get this off my chest first. While going through my Twitter feed today, I saw the wonderful video of Cher singing the theme to Golden Girls.

Are we really going to do this all over again? Haven’t […]

$819 Billion Economic Stimulus Package

This is proof that we … you, me and everyone else in America … are asleep at the wheel: “No House Republican voted for the stimulus package, yet 244 Democrats did.” The odds that 177 people of approximately 435 would each vote identically are astronomical UNLESS all of these people are “members” of a specific group where as this would not be so uncommon. Come on everyone. I know we each have different believes, feelings and thoughts but doesn’t this remind you of something? It does me, can anyone say “High School?” This is nothing but kids playing in a […]

A Day In History … TWICE!

The first time in history, right on the most significant government website, is the future … hope … that change for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons is ahead.  AND hope that our future as a people truly will be as a united race, one race. http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/civil_rights/ The first President in our history to put it right there on their official outlet – not hidden, not as a quick sideline but as their plan for the future (and yes, AFTER they’ve been elected….). It’s amazing and after all these years of being an activist (more so when I was younger), […]
