Only The Best People For The Swamp

Only The Best People For The Swamp

I really shouldn’t respond to talk shows but I find the either/or nature of the sexual harassment and/or assault conversation these days irritating. No, it’s not acceptable to the so-called left for innocent men to lose their jobs over harassment or assault that never happened. Wrong is wrong although, admittedly, it’s tempting after thousands of years […]

No, Mika. Your Friend's Victims DO NOT Have To Listen To ANYTHING He Has To Say

No, Mika. Your Friend’s Victims DO NOT Have To Listen To ANYTHING He Has To Say

Oh, good night nurse. Mika Brzezinski apparently had some interesting things to say about the accusers of her friend and colleague who lost his job over alleged sexual harassment on her show, Morning Joe, charging that it’s the accusers’ role to enable us to “grow as a society.” (Think Progress). Is she kidding? What is it […]

FYI: We Stayed Silent To Survive. And Now, We're Done.

FYI: We Stayed Silent To Survive. And Now, We’re Done.

FYI: Women stay silent to survive. However, allegations are necessary to get the process going. It’s what happens. Someone alleges that someone else did something. From there, an investigation is supposed to take place to determine if the allegations are founded or not. But we’re in a different world now. Now that a man who […]

Manifesting Our Power ~ Runecasting for 29 November 2017

I love oak trees. Sacred to Druids, pagans, and witches, I finally planted an oak tree last year over by my three weeping willows and so far it’s growing well. I found some acorns on our morning walk today and gathered some along with their “hats” which I may use as chime candle holders. I’ll […]

Survivors: Enduring The Impossible

Survivors: Enduring The Impossible

As survivors, we spend our lives enduring the impossible. And the detailed allegations of men using their positions to sexually harass or assault both men and women, feels impossible to take in, no matter how encouraging it might be that the truth is now coming out. Making a distinction between the unwanted aggressive sexual behavior and […]

And The Walls Came Tumbling Down

And The Walls Came Tumbling Down

A veritable avalanche of accusations involving both sexual harassment and assault are tumbling down on all sorts of people these days. I wondered when Trump was elected what the effect of his own allegations would be on our collective response to this behavior since clearly, those allegations weren’t enough to stop his election. And it’s interesting […]

It's Not About Putting America First. It's About The Safety And Protection Of Our Children. Always.

In Support Of Safety And Dignity For All

Full disclosure in case you’re new to the blog: I’m not a supporter of our current president nor do I support his policies. Instead, I’m a supporter of families, women, truth, integrity, shared sacrifice, unity, and progressive thinking. But when he was tragically elected nearly a year ago, besides having a panic attack, I wondered […]

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

I turn sixty today. I plan to observe it by joining with other women who are boycotting Twitter today protesting the suspension of Rose McGowan and other issues experienced by women on that site. So, I’ll wait to post this after midnight on Twitter in solidarity with the sisterhood. Social media is an interesting place. […]

Normalizing Sexual Harassment

Normalizing Sexual Harassment

Like many women, I’ve experienced sexual harassment during my life. I’ve also experienced sexual assault, so I’m in no mood to hear people pretend they didn’t know or are somehow shocked by allegations about someone who is a powerful individual in their line of work and known by all of them. I have no idea […]

Off With His Head Already: Valor Of A Queen ~ Tarot for 19 April 2017

Off With His Head Already: Valor Of A Queen ~ Tarot for 19 April 2017

The Queen has clearly had enough. She reclines on her throne in the clouds, her sword in her right hand, a severed head in her left. She’s exhausted, having taken matters into her own hands, from the drama and illusion surrounding her. She is the unknown presence, watching everything unfold around her, waiting for the […]
