Obama won, he's burning the midnight whatever-people-burn-now-that-candles-are-deemed-bad-for-the-eyes and, despite what a few aging white men declare, he just might succeed. So why am I occasionally beset by just a wee hint of bitterness? Do any of those guys (yes, I do mean Republicans) take...

Back in the day, I had a diary. (No, children, we did not carve words into stone tablets in those days. Really.) So my original understanding of a blog was that it was just like a diary. Except on the computer, and open to anyone to read. In the past year, I've found that a blog is very different....

Dear Friends:  You are my one saving grace within a confused, unfamiliar and coldly objective world. You light my heart when the flame is all but extinguished. I dream of you to save myself.

I am starting to hate the color pink.  Somehow pink has come to represent breast cancer.   Breast cancer is not cute.  It is not frilly or girlie or stylish.  Breast cancer is ugly and heart breaking and devastating.  I guess it would not be very encouraging to use black ribbons to represent breast...

Let this be the beginning!  --of a long storm that rages and weeps of a storm that sings and dances     until it is almost afraid of itself! I am Furious and Grieving. I am calling out to all poets to search not only their dreams, but their waking imagination, and their deepest fears, so that we...
