Going with Nothing

My sleep pattern has been crazier than you can imagine. Lately, I go to bed around 5am, and I get up sometime. As I don’t have a regular job, it depends on if there is something I have to do. If not, I get up around 12 or 1pm. Which is crazy!!!! Because then the…

Can You Trust Yourself?

I have a good friend–ok, he used to be a good friend–who after becoming ultra-Christian would constantly get on my case about following my intuition. When he had an important decision to make, however, he would say that he first needed to pray on it. God would answer him and–tada!–he knew what action to take next. He said that…

The New Sexy: Women Over 40

I’m 41. Until recently, when a woman over 40 checked out my dating profile, the first thought that popped up in my head was “too old”–and then I quickly moved on. I would literally think, “Why is she checking me out? We’re not even in the same generation.” No lie. I shared this revelation with my friend, Heather, who’s in…

My Freshly-Sewn Stitches

People cope in different ways. People. We. You and I. We all are copers. Some of us turn into dopers.   We all have our little ways, some of them secret, to cope with hurt and pain when reality does not conform to our wishes and desires. Some of us are better at hiding them…

I was six and all I wanted was a lightsaber

STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. I was 6 years old. I remember getting my whole Universe blown to smithereens. I wanted to be Luke Skywalker. Badly. (Yeah, I wasn’t cool enough yet to be Han Solo.) I wanted a lightsaber, and I was willing to give up a finger–but only my pinky–if only I could…
