Better Things
On the eve of history or herstory, either way, I think it
would be nice to spend some time talking about other things.  Internet kittens. (Aw!) What I had for

(Why, God, why?!) Anything but.  No more
hate.  No more ...

The Final Countdown
This is it!  48 painful hours until the 2016 Presidential Election is over.  Will we survive?  Will we all still be speaking? No matter the outcome, this country has a problem.  We are more divided than we are united -- at least as far as the media is conce...

My Husband Doesn't Have a Wife
This is what I explained to my son the other night. "Your father doesn't really have a wife." Clearly, this lead to blank stares and questions.  Of course, I am his wife and he is my husband.  But, I am not his 'WIFE.' When Mommy and Daddy were growing up, ...

Everything Happens for a Reason
If I was looking for a sign, this was it. In updating some broken code on my blog today, the post that I wrote to close out #NaBloPoMo suddenly appeared in the News Update ticker... And the very best sentence from that passage of Ecclesiastes is this... "A ...

Turn, Turn, Turn
I feel like I said all there was to say last night about what comes next.  So with tonight, the last post of 2015 #NaBloPoMo I think I will leave it at this: "There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven A time...

The New Adventures of Old Kirsten
It's the next to last night of #NaBloPoMo.  30 posts, 30 days. Not sure what I've gained in skill, but I do think I have gained much in perspective. And from the posts of my fellow writer friends, the same kind of revelations have been happening for others,...
