Well, it’s a new year, but the same old shit is happening in the world. After two brutal years, the US is still facing a major threat to our democracy and COVID is alive and well in a new form: Omicron. But I’d rather look forward to what is on the horizon for me and… Read More What’s on the Horizon in 2022
This past week I’ve been binge watching The Boys, an Amazon Prime series with an interesting premise. The twist to the series is representing superheroes as extremely flawed beings. The revelation on why they are so flawed comes about later in the series. However, I was stuck on how villainous the series made most of… Read More Superheroes
Usually I am a rule follower, even when the rule makes no sense. Why? Because basically, I’ve been a “good girl” all my life.

It’s grim with the pandemic and economic fallout that will surely affect millions of Americans. And yet, there is a spark of hope. For more than three years, there has been a deep divide… Read More Unity…

Sometimes I wonder if that subtext is watered down because of that humor. Hmmm…this is a new conundrum I have… Read More Humor Me…
We are in a particularly scary moment in history fueled by social media. Facebook and Twitter expand the principles of the mob mentality. Throw in power differentials and we have a powder keg. Recently, my wife showed me a horrific news story about an Iranian lawmaker offering three million to assassinate Trump. I stayed away… Read More Mob Mentality
I’m a curious person and random questions often pop in my head. Recently our team was delivering Holiday cards and everyone on the team was saying Merry Christmas.
