Spinsters Are Us

As I was growing up, I was taught that girls who did not marry were considered to be spinsters or, as they are better known, old maids. My grandmother had two spinster sisters. I didn’t think less of them for not being married. Also, I do not recall anyone else ever having any derogatory things to say about either of them

Lest We Forget

The term ‘Lest we forget’ was a repetitive phrase used in the the 1897 Rudyard Kipling poem, Recessional. It was then later used by the British Commonwealth during Remembrance Day services following World War I. After World War II, it was rejuvenated by the United States regarding the bombing of the U.S

Everyone’s Doing It

More than nine years ago, self-proclaimed germaphobe, Howie Mandel went public with his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and sent celebrity-watching societies into a fist bumping frenzy.
The fist bump dates back to the 1800s boxing arena. At the beginning of a boxing match, the two contenders would meet in the center of the ring and hit their gloved fists together as a form of greeting. This action slipped into the Cricket world in 1990 when two batsmen in Australia met at the plate and bumped fists at the start of the game and continued to do so throughout the game

Erasing History

I have loved old things and history since I was a young girl being raised by my maternal grandparents. No one had to explain things to me or tell me why history should be appreciated, I just did. I would spend hours sitting on the floor looking through the saved issues of my grandparents’ subscription to The Good Old Days magazine. Through the years, going into an antique shop was just as fascinating and educational as going into a museum

Know You, Love You

 

In the dawning of a brand new day, I have a question for your ponderance: If I were to behave toward you the way you behave toward you, would this be a good thing? You don’t need to answer this question aloud. However, it might help you get a firm grasp on the gravity of the question if you do so.
self-esteem |ˈˌself əˈstēm|
noun
Confidence in one’s own worth or abilities; self-respect
Over the last five decades the term self-esteem has been thrown around very loosely and usually with regard to women. Edging into the 60s, women, more and more, sought a certain freedom

Stillness In The Mind

It is long that I have anticipated writing this post. In part for me and in part for everyone else.
To meditate is to focus ones mind for an extended period of time. Extended time does not necessarily mean hours or days

Not All Are The Same

In this day and time with regard to most celebrities and celebrity wannabes, if you would like to take a photo with them (taken by a friend with YOUR camera) you have to pay upwards of $50. Imagine, $50, $100 and even more just to have a celebrity stand next to you and smile.
Everyone is out for what they can get.
This past Thursday, June 15, 2017, I was anxiously waiting for my friend Laurel to arrive for a visit from Florida where she lives

What The Dragon Has Done: Part I

Finally, I am able to complete this post. I made the video on May 3, 2017, but could not get it to upload to YouTube until now. This is part one in answering the question, which started all of this off, ‘Has Ménière’s disease affected my life and if so, how?’ Be aware that there is no editing here. I just hit the record button and went with it

Keep Your Ideas

On April 13, 2017, I published a blog post about keeping a journal. This post was directed toward people with chronic illnesses, specifically those who battle the same beast I have, Menière’s disease. This is not the same kind of journaling as I am about to discuss.
When you are a writer, you write
