And So it Begins…

Yesterday protesters in DC were arrested after breaking store windows and at least one car was set on fire. Here in Nashville, protesters were arrested after they formed a human chain, and with the help of some duct tape, prevented anyone from entering or exiting the capitol. I happened to be walking around during my … Continue reading

But Don’t Take My Word for It…

Recently I blogged  about the health benefits of a vegan diet. Well, lo and behold, I get an email from Faunalytics (a research library for those of us promoting a more humane lifestyle) that includes an abstract from a position paper published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics providing guidelines for helping vegans and vegetarians reach optimal … Continue reading

I Can Really Go After Shit…

I’ve been tweaking my resume, and there’s a skill I possess that I’m not quite sure how to address. I’m good at dealing with shit.  I can scoop it, shovel it, pick it up outside, pick it up inside, remove and replace the diaper within which it resides, regularly clean the receptacles that receive it, clean practically … Continue reading

No, We will NOT be Quiet! We Shall be Heard.

There is much turmoil within our country these days, and it seems lately the solution for those on top, as well as those who fear uncertainty, is to shhhhh!!!! us.  On this weekend where we honor the life and service of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader of one of the largest protest movements … Continue reading

Spending a Few Moments with Myself

This morning I practiced mindfulness. Mindfulness is defined as, “a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.” (Google) Mindfulness, for me, is a state of being content with and accepting of myself. First, I rolled out the yoga mat and … Continue reading

Dinner for One

Last night I cooked dinner for myself. For some, cooking is a necessity. If they don’t cook, the family does not eat. For others, it’s a thing they do because they always have, or somebody has to do it and they do a pretty darn good job of it. In this age of fast food, … Continue reading

Living in the Shadow of Men

Within the past week: A man in north Alabama shot and killed his wife and then himself. An Oregon man beat his wife to death, shot his three children in the head, set their home on fire and then killed himself. A Texas plumber shot and killed his wife and her elderly father, then set their home … Continue reading

Sound Reasons for Going Vegan that Don’t Include Animal Cruelty

January is Veganuary, a month-long promotion to get you to consider going vegan, or at least to enjoy a few meat-free meals.  I’m a most unlikely vegan spokesperson because, while female, I am not young, blonde, or thin, and I don’t walk around in my underwear with PETA signs (you can thank me with money). … Continue reading

Welcome New Bloggers!

I seem to have attracted several new followers lately. Welcome! Some of them are spammers or businesses wanting me to buy something. But many are actual bloggers hoping to connect. For those of you bloggers who are new to the scene, allow me to share with you a bit of wisdom I’ve learned over my years of blogging. … Continue reading

I Hereby Resolve…

In case you’re new to my errant ramblings, I left a job in May, moved to a different state and embarked on a journey toward healing my bruised psyche. It has been the most rewarding experience I have ever given myself. Today I feel stronger, healthier and happier than I believe I have at any … Continue reading
