Building a Village

I was talking to a good friend of mine today about our town being “clique-ish.” Okay… talking is the wrong word. I was complaining. And I was complaining for the same reason most people complain: I don’t have a clique. Maybe it’s because I’m lazy, or maybe it’s because I’m mostly exhausted all the time, […]

Baby Brain

I swear I’m losing my mind. I mean… I remember being a little less together after J was born and saying stupid things and what not… but this is another level, you guys. Do you lose brain cells with each child? Am I feeding my intelligence to my child through his milk? Because I am […]

Woman in the Mirror

Maybe it’s because forty is looming close on my horizon and maybe it’s because I have two friends who are expecting little girls at the end of this year, but for whatever reason there is suddenly an unquenchable thirst in my soul for feminism the way it ought to be. I have begun to feel […]

Seven Minutes

As luck would have it, the first week of daycare for C coincides with the first week of summer camp for J. This means that I get to take C downtown to daycare then drive all the way up to north Macon to drop J off at his camp. My morning routine, which during the […]

Miracles

The out of the blue reminder that there’s a tiny person in my uterus never ceases to take my breath away. Every roll and tumble, every hiccup, every karate kick to my rib cage. It’s like he reminds me every so often with a little kiss of understanding that yes, I am growing a person. […]

Expectations

I ended my last post with just a sentence, nothing exciting, but some of you had questions. Did it mean something? Was there a hint of information behind that innocent little period? Was I trying to reveal a little piece of what’s been going on in my life… a life that has been unfolding in […]

Reunited

There are times in your life that you want to forget; times when you made terrible mistakes; times when terrible things happened to you or to people you love. There are times that when you think of them,  you cringe and wonder how that part of your life existed in any form, ever. For a […]

The Hard Road

“You’re an idiot.” “I hope one day you learn how to use your brain.” “What is the MATTER with you people?” “I hope they die in a fire.” “This country is in a sad state of affairs when this person is a candidate for President.” “Criminal.” “Bigot.” “Asshole” “Bitch.” “A bunch of liberal morons.” “Republican […]

Civil Discourse

A few weeks ago, I opened my email to a message from a local church leader, inviting me to come visit with him about my beliefs on some of the bills that have been introduced lately across our country, dealing with (among other things) LGBT marriage. His email was in response to a fired off […]

An Act of Contrition

“Oh my God, I am heartfully sorry for having offended thee, and I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishment, but most of all because I have offended Thee my God, Who is all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no […]
