    Define Yourself

    Where can you go for a good taco these days? If I asked you to share with me your favorite taco joint, where would you send me? I hope you tell me about your favorites. But lately it seems that instead of sharing what we love and why we love it, we insist on telling people their experience is invalid. We tell them what they should like. We quickly put down other people’s preference and we shun those who don’t agree with us. I’m currently binging Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Season 9: Episode 1. In this episode Bourdain explores the Los Angeles area through the eyes of the Mexicans and…

    February’s Ten Minute *Winks* with an Irritated Zombie ;)

    The telephone rang. I picked it up and listened to a cheerful woman tell me that I was depressed.  There was a good chance I was gaining weight.  I would need to revisit the lab to make sure.  Oh and could I cut back on the coffee? That was a week ago.  I laughed it off.  I’ve been gaining a steady 5 pounds per year.  Which I’m pretty sure I can chalk up to the sugar in my coffee and the bad pastry habit I’m struggling with.  I get that we are living in a season without sunlight to nourish our souls but it can’t be that bad, can it?  People live here and…

    What was YOUR Sweetest Day Like?

    Seriously. What is Valentine’s Day really about? Why does this horrible holiday make it so hard to show that you care? You can have all of the details come together perfectly… and then you wonder… did I buy enough? Will they like it? Will the roses die in my car before I get home? Should I pick chocolate and flowers up on my way home and risk the vendor being out of what I had my heart set on? Each year I tell myself, okay this year will be different… and it kind of is. Then we end up standing in an hour long line at our favorite restaurant and…

    Truth S.H.I.T

    I recently spent some time creating quotes about truth.  Why?  Because I feel there is an overwhelming amount of irritating propaganda posing as truth.  I’m talking about the kind of stuff that stands on such a weak foundation, it is afraid of an honest debate.  Instead of communicating and strengthening communities, it’s the kind of stuff that empowers people to heckle and tear vulnerable-everyday-imperfect-people apart. Simply put, propaganda is a highly polished art form used to emotionally move a group to act on principles and beliefs they want internalized… even if it is against the best interest of the group in question.  Once it’s been internalized, it tends to show up in…

    Let your Light Sparkle ;)

    Who has inspired or encouraged you in your life? Did you ever tell them? I am inspired by authentic people (whether I agree with them 100% or not) sharing real moments and feelings. Why? It seems like we live in a society that bullies or tries to destroy any one who is imperfect or portrays a weakness. They in essence make themselves vulnerable to speculation and then hordes of dissenters rain down in an effort to squish out their light.  A light that someone else is begging to see… People who are introverts but go out of their way to do an act of kindness – for nothing in return……
