Say What You Mean To Say

I’ve been reflecting on a conversation with someone I had over a week ago. In it they expressed they had a gripe with me in pretty powerful words, however and after asking several times, they refused to tell me what exactly I did which bothered them. The conversation concluded and I was left pondering. Since that day we haven’t Continue reading

And So It Was: Cont’d

Saturday proved to be long, painful and loud! Until 7 pm the motorcycle came and went. At 9:05 fireworks and even till after 11 pm. And just when I thought it was safe to settle into bed and let sleep take over I was jolted back into my painful reality. A series of whistles, Continue reading

And so it was

Vroooooooom was all it took for my rather normal disposition to transition beyond what I could handle. We’d just arrived back home and I exited the car. Little did I know that the sheer act of walking around the car would cause me to cross an invisible safety threshold and stumble into a line of fire. Continue reading

The Final Blow

So now that my error laden article has been published. I can get into details on how a not so simple bump on the head has become something much more. I’ve had a series of very serious head injuries.

I hope you all aren’t too disappointed and more details coming tomorrow. Stay tuned

 

 

An Open Letter To The Breastfeeding Graduate

The fact that I feel compelled to pen an open letter, speaks volumes about the society in which we inhabit. A society that will focus more so on you nursing your infant daughter, rather than congratulate you for your accomplishments.  A society that will ogle over  a scantily clad woman and catapult her to a platform of beauty. A society that will celebrate and protest the use of oil by arranging a Naked Bike Ride. It seems very few take offense of a man walking sans shirt or a woman baring cleavage, yet  breastfeeding continues to be taboo. Continue reading

Birthday Update

I will admit it was a bit difficult to celebrate yesterday. I was treated to both breakfast and dinner. The food was delicious but between the noise and lack of appetite, I came home with a ton of leftovers and a breached headache. Despite this, I am thankful to see another year. And of course there were a few highlights: Continue reading
