Dear Donald: Now It’s The NFL? #TakeAKnee

You know, I’m really trying not to write on Sundays unless it’s to work on one of the books I’m currently writing. But then you have to go off on the NFL so here we are again. Donald, we have a First Amendment right in this country to say what we want. If NFL players […]

In Joyful Presence With All

In Joyful Presence With All

Wunjo, Ehwaz, and Othala comprise today’s runecasting. Elemental influences are Earth and Water; absent are Fire and Air. Overall, the numerology is six or the sacred layer of Self, governing our emotions, communication, harmony, and balance. I crafted the runes I’m using from a black locust branch from a tree in my backyard. I craft most […]

Polarity In Balance

Polarity In Balance

Balanced polarity is the theme of today’s tarot reading. One card from the Major Arcana along with two Court cards, one from the suit of Pentacles and the other from Swords surround a card from the suit of Cups. Earth, Air, and Water are represented with Fire absent from the reading. The overall numerology is 1 […]

All We Needed Was More Paint

All We Needed Was More Paint

Why do I ever leave the house? We needed more paint for the cover over the new well and the pipe from it to the cistern so we headed to the local home improvement stores in the area where we bought the first gallon. My husband is the system operator for our community well and […]

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Donald, who are you praying for today? Are you praying for your soul as you tell somewhere in the neighborhood of 800,000 DACA recipients that they have to go back home when they’re already home? They come out of the shadows after it was finally safe to do so and they have to now deal with […]

Gratitude Versus The Pissy And Pathetic

Gratitude Versus The Pissy And Pathetic

Gratitude is a funny thing. Most of us are capable of feeling it and it obvious to all when someone had trouble with that. I think it must fall along the same continuum as apologies and compassion. Maybe you either have it or you don’t. Some of us give more selflessly than others do. And that’s […]

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

For situations beyond our control, a protection bindrune might be necessary. They can protect the individual from harm or interrupt the behavior of another. For this bindrune, I decided to focus its energies into a sigil that helps and individual stand in their own power and more effectively communicate their needs and boundaries. As usual, I […]

The End Of A Presidency That Never Should Have Been

The End Of A Presidency That Never Should Have Been

Donald, you may have just ended your presidency today. You couldn’t stop yourself from one more unhinged rant and you may have sealed your coffin forever with your failure to simply denounce Nazis and white nationalists. Instead, you continued your sad attack on the so-called alt-left, whatever that is. Speaking with Joy Reid on MSNBC, […]

Micromanaging The Impossible

Micromanaging The Impossible

We all know people guilty of micromanaging others. They can’t seem to step back and let others do their jobs without endless interference. And it never fails that these same people are completely unqualified to supervise anyone. They undermine those they wish to manage offending them in the process. And their self-righteous attitude prevents them […]
