My Theme Music

Let’s call it my resolution for the fast-approaching New Year. Not there yet, but it is my goal: professionally, emotionally, spiritually. My children are thriving and it’s time to follow suit.

Nina is my inspiration. 😉 Birds flying high, you know how I feel…

Inspiration

I found my muse.
It was buried under layers
Of denial,
Working long hours and not leaving
Time for me.
Unleashed,
My words tumble from my soul.
Words of joy, love, sorrow and hope.
Wanting to be near you,
In your space
Breathing the air that you breathe.

Unwilling to fight for control of my emotions
My words race across the page,
Singing songs of bliss and freedom.
I want to shout and tell everyone!
Yet,
I want to keep this sweetness
To myself, to savor
Alone.

You underestimate the magnitude
Of my words,
My thoughts,
My passion for you.
They are interwoven with the marrow
Of my bones,
The follicles of my hair…
You are a part of me.

My tears, disappointments
And orgasms were preordained and
Waiting for your divine entrance.
I crave your taste
And embrace
That will again complete me.
Far beyond the pleasure that we create,
I am spellbound by you.
And
As I write,
I am awestruck
That we have not scratched the Surface.

From the Mouths of Babes

obamaletter1_uni_1356020111

No matter your position on “gun control,” your heart is made of stone if you do not believe that policy and practical changes are now and have been mandatory. A letter meant for President Obama from Valerie Barden, the older sister of a Sandy Hook victim, was read on-air by Anderson Cooper.

My name is Natalie Barden and I wanted to tell the president that only police officers and the military should get guns. If people want to do it as a sport than they could go to a shooting range and the guns would not be able to leave there.

A family friend representing the Bardens approached Cooper with the letter, calling for cooperation in Congress and communities holding their reps accountable.

I am surprised that the representatives from Connecticut have not put something forward.

No Hopey-Changey Stuff Here

obama time

the Obama effect was not ephemeral anymore, no longer reducible to what had once been mocked as that ‘hopey-changey stuff… It could be measured in wars stopped and started; industries saved, restructured or reregulated; tax cuts extended; debt levels inflated; terrorists killed; the health-insurance system reimagined; and gay service members who could walk in uniform with their partners. It could be seen in the new faces who waited hours to vote and in the new ways campaigns are run. America debated and decided this year: history would not record Obama’s presidency as a fluke.

A Second Glance

DSC_0006

This morning I tweeted that I looked back at my four year-old’s school after I exited; I never have before. My eyes welled up. All the children were running in, laughing and playing while a patrol car and rescure vehicle were posted outside.

A sign of the times…
