Update
In my non-professional world of writing, I have done a few things recently. First off, I wrote (another) poem about current events ... or rather the past events that mirror the current ones. Also, a vent about the school system where my spawn goes: Racist o...

Why I March
I was always an activist. I questioned. I pushed boundaries. I protested naps and bedtimes and the percentage of green stuff on my plate. I started clubs to fight injustice and at age 7 led a revolt of angry Brownies who felt it wasn’t right that we didn’t ...

Trigger Warnings Wouldn't Have Helped
Ten and a half years ago I was attacked in my home. Because of this, I am very twitchy about answering my door. But on the whole, I feel I have recovered as well as can be expected and I don't live my life in abject fear. Really. So today I took the kiddo t...
