Everybody Say Love

I didn’t have a lot of downtime this weekend really, but I’m in a really good mood this morning. Such a good mood that I’m setting aside what I had planned for this morning (including an essay on my experience with gay marriage) but instead I want to share this feeling of love and hope [Read More…]

Slipping On A Patch Of Doubt

I’m slipping and sliding on a patch of doubt this morning. Nothing I could write seems appropriate. I don’t have a lot of time to write, and my heart is troubled.

The Love of Community

Samhain is close, October is hectic, my extended family experienced tragedy and I just got over being sick. At this moment I feel caught in a maelstrom: swept up, ground down and a little helpless. I’ve spoken before about the concentric rings of community I belong to. Right now with all the stress at this [Read More…]
