Happy Women’s Equality Weekend!

According to the joint resolution by Congress in 1971, “NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that August 26th of each year is designated as Women’s Equality Day, and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation annually in commemoration of that day in 1920, on which the women of America were first given the right to vote, and that day in 1970, on which a nationwide demonstration for women’s rights took place.”

LETS GET READY TO PUT SOME MORE POWER TO THE POLLS.

If I Kick It

If I Kick It

I hope to live to be an old lady but if I don’t here is what I’d suggest happens.

For me to be cremated, and ashes spread in a body of water, perhaps the Pacific Ocean or in the Mississippi River.

For the funeral to be a celebration of my soul going back into the pool, well of souls or wherever we go for the next beautiful round.

Please make the service a funky glitter disco dance party with the movie Xanadu playing in the background or a viewing. Lots of glitter, lots of phat beats and horns, lots and lots of popcorn and lots and lots of rum. A second line. Maybe a sunset. Not to be too demanding from the ether…

When We Screw Up — The Power of I’m Sorry

When We Screw Up — The Power of I’m Sorry

Things happen.

The unforeseen.

The accident.

The mishap.

A thoughtless phase uttered in public or in private.

Things beyond ones control.

Even things within one’s control but that don’t go the right way.

Tis life.

But when they do, and you disappoint someone, don’t make a commitment, don’t show up, can’t do something you said you’d do, there is an easy way to deal with that.
