Preaching on the Gay Gene

February 23, 2011 15 Comments

Apparently one of our small town religious groups has awakened enough to recognize that just maybe it can acknowledge that science is suggesting there is a gene for homosexuality. Glory be. HOWEVER, apparently like the alcoholism gene, one can choose whether or not to act on that genetic urge. At least that’s what Sponge Bob …

A Gallery of Tush Admiration

Something dawned on me this morning. Something more than the usual sun coming up over the eastern horizon. Something that completely struck me as a bit odd. I follow the writings of several women bloggers. I like what they write. They are funny, informative, down-to-earth, and so much more. This morning I realized what exactly …

Keeping it Simple

A recent reminder to “love the sinner, hate the sin” triggered my thinking about what constitutes sin and who gets to label something a sin. After all, we’ve taken great liberties in this country (and specifically in this part of the country) to weave into our many local, state, and national laws the conservative Christian …

A Tale of Many Paradoxes

July 22, 2010 4 Comments

Things have continued to progress this week as I sort through the many artifacts and memoirs found in my in-law’s home. Also continuing are the a-ha moments and the reminders of my mother-in-law’s many passions. …and the paradox of contradiction so many of her passions hold. It fascinates me that a woman who is so …

Submission and Minotaurs

May 12, 2010 4 Comments

The divine feminine spirit remains first and foremost on my mind these days. As I continue my trek through Sue Monk Kidd’s Dance of the Dissident Daughter, each page opens my eyes to a part of the journey of awakening that began in me about 5 years ago. With each new section, I recognize myself …

Divine Feminine Girl Daddy Hubby Dude

I’m taking some time this morning to dig further into Sue Monk Kidd’s book, Dance of the Dissident Daughter. It is some really good stuff. Lots to process. One of the most important things I have gleaned so far is how blessed I am to be in a relationship with a man who is very …

Intuition: It's Been Here All Along

May 3, 2010 2 Comments

Of the many changes that have staked their claim over me in recent years, the one that I am delighting in most is the realization that I am an intuitive person. Apparently I have been all along. I just didn’t know it until now. I owe a debt of gratitude to some extremely beautiful women …

The Clothes Line Murderer

This is my sweet man, Hunky Farmer Boy. He’s the lone source of testosterone amidst a sea of about five dozen females of various species. I think you’ve met previously. This is Hunky Farmer Boy on his Tonka Toy. (This is where you hear the Tim the Toolman Taylor grunting sounds.) For reasons never fully …

Watching Man-History Repeat Itself–It's All Mom's Fault

April 6, 2010 2 Comments

Yesterday I confessed to the many love affairs I have had in my life. I have had the housekeeper, the gardener, the farmer, the construction foreman, the electrical engineer, and more. And yes, they are all the same guy, my sweet man of 20+ years. One might say he’s quite multi-talented……or you might say he’s …

Confessions of a Desperate Small Town Diva

April 5, 2010 0 Comments

You just can’t keep a secret in a small town. Someone will eventually find out and then you’re busted. So, I have a confession to make, because it is time to come clean, and I’d rather break the news myself than be outed by everyone else. Wow. This is so…uh….embarrassing. How to begin? Yeah….so…..it’s like …
