Body Shamer




 I will find a way to shame you and your body. If I deem you too thin, I will accuse you of kowtowing to the expectations of the Dominant Culture. I will blog incessantly about your "body issues" and speculate out loud whether you ever felt truly loved by your family. I will spew hateful things about the lack of intelligence possessed by those women under a certain weight. I will accuse them of using their collective petite sizes as an oppressive tool against the female gender at large.

 If I determine that you are overweight, I will advise you to never even think about losing weight. Cuz, if I find out that you are attempting to lose weight, I will shame you into oblivion using various social media tools. I will instruct you to ignore your doctor's advice about diabetes and your family's history of heart disease. In other words, I will tell you that your issues are not medical but, rather part of a larger conversation.

I will reduce your entire existence as a platform for my own personal agenda and you will admire me for it.  You are too busy gushing over the fact that I have written you a one-way permission slip to your own eventual demise.

I can honestly say that as a body shamer, I do not care about you. You are a means to an end to me.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
