Cinched Waist

If I were ever asked to offer one piece of advice, one thing that could change the world, my contribution would be this: Turn off the television. Now, because I’m a wordy woman that nugget would be closely followed by, “stop supporting the fast food industry,” and “if a t-shirt costs less than twenty dollars…

Air Out

It might be time to step outside. I’m thinking near the ocean or under another gorgeous full moon, something to help gain perspective. Over the past few months, things have become incredibly myopic, and while I understand disappointment, I am confused by the over-the-top drama. My choice for elected-follower didn’t win on Tuesday either, but a…

Torn Pocket

I should write a post about Baltimore. I have an opinion.  I’m sure for many it would be the wrong side, or maybe readers would agree and deem my thoughts correct, right. I’m not sure.  I have things to say, feelings to express, but when I try to put them down, they are too big,…

You know that scene in A Few Good Men when Jack Nicholson says, “You can’t handle the truth!”? I know he turned out to be a maniacal nut bag, but that line sticks with me. Most of the time I disagree with Jack.  Our government is too complicated and what are we really building in…

Shocking Colors

  Pablo Picasso, Three Musicians, 1921. The status quo is comfortable and people tend to gravitate toward what they understand and can logically get their head around.  Change can be scary and pulls into question “What will happen now?”  Change in politics or society can effect people’s lives in often dramatic ways.  I understand the…

Gloves

I’ve always found the phrase “May contain nuts or nut pieces” odd, especially when it is found on foods that have nothing to do with nuts. Don’t the makers of these products know whether there are nuts? What do you mean it “may contain”? After seeing this several times and pondering the possibilities I’ve determined…

J. Crew

I was listening to someone on NPR this morning talk about how the Obamas held hands during their first dance at one of the Inaugural Balls. This commentator (I use the term very loosely) went on to say that Americans can really tell they are in love because this is the first time a president…
