Hello my OS friends -
I am beginning to work on my book again and appreciate being able to post things here to "see how they sound." Thank you for reading and your constructive comments are appreciated.
I hear this phrase from banks and other ads, and in conversation… Read full post »
Just like “in the olden days” of unconscionable behavior, old white men, drunk with power (and booze) and so used to being untouchable, unaccountable for their actions they rape and pillage and do not see what the problem is, these treasonous beasts have brought down the Federal Governmen… Read full post »
To be – serious, and not to be – serious; that is the question.
I grew up in serious times in a house of people who were serious about making changes in the government and laws in this country. The world had serious problems and it would take serious people to… Read full post »
A few years ago I discovered that there is a Naturalization Ceremony on the 4th of July at the Seattle Center.
I went there to see Obama's first inauguration. When President Obama was elected, I was so overjoyed – not only a decent man and great speaker, but an idealist who… Read full post »
When I was young I tried and tried
To be the things my mother wanted of me.
I tried and tried to square up my roundedness
To fit into the straight lines and right angles in every way.
Mom saw my struggle and related.
She’d… Read full post »
Lately I have been imagining a lot of horrible things. In my mind’s eye I see pictures of torture, abuse, injustices done upon my body as well as others. It can be sudden and very disturbing for my body.
At different times in my life I have gone through periods where… Read full post »
One out of 10 people over the age of 12 are on antidepressants, but that’s not a problem to national security. It’s a personal problem, not a systemic one.
7 out of 10 of Americans are on prescription drugs, but there’s no problem with that either.
80% of processed… Read full post »
A child understands her parents in relationship to her.
In the beginning they are the things that make life possible. She cries and they feed her. She’s wet, and they change her. The child understands the parents in relationship to her being, as if when they are not in her… Read full post »
1969 was my first year in public school. It was quite an achievement to get to leave the Catholic school I had been in since first grade. Seven years of the same people in my classes and in the small school. The same kids, the same families from 1st to 8th… Read full post »
That pregnancy itself was like being possessed. I quit smoking, partly due to the shame and grief I got from people, including Tim. He'd hoped I'd have an abortion, but the church of Nice Guy kept that at bay and of course “it's a woman's right to chose.”… Read full post »
In 1991 I bought a Journal. One of those large, over-sized, old fashioned Journals that they used to use for accountancy, only this one had graph paper pages. I really liked the pale blue square boxes all over the pages. I thought the symmetry would be good for me since I'd… Read full post »
The Christmas Present
For some folks thinking about what they’ll do for Christmas is pre-planning problem solving, for others it is recreational Visioning. It has defiantly become recreational Visioning for me. We’ve had the first sleet of the change of season tonight so this is a natura… Read full post »
Kahlil Gibran says in The Prophet – “pain is the breaking of the shell of your understanding.”
Imagine watching a chick hatch out of its egg. The chick has a little thorn on its beak to help it crack its way out of the shell. It is… Read full post »
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more
painful than the risk it took to blossom.

“Stand still! I can’t pin this with you fidgeting around so much! If you’d stand still I could get done with this and you could go play!”
I don’t want to stand still. It’s boring to just stand still! I hate it when she decides to make me new… Read full post »
A life-work should not be
easy. Simple maybe but hard.
A life-work that is worthy will take time and space, it will
inform you and shape you in your struggle to bring it into
being. Your life-work will, like grace, cut away at what is
not essential, while illuminating what/… Read full post »
She didn’t so much argue women’s or men’s places as she did know what they were, and then played with them.
Men’s literature is not called men’s literature. It’s not called Caucasian men’s literature, either. Instead it’s not called anything – i… Read full post »
What Losing OS Would Mean – to me - in response to fernsy's open call.
I started reading and posting here a couple of years ago or so. I hadn’t had a lot of strangers read my work before. It felt hugely risky, but people were nice. People read and/… Read full post »
God you are brave,
Karen Blixen in Out of Africa says to her ex-husband
when he comes to tell her that her lover died in a crash.
My father said, “You have a
lot of courage.”
I couldn’t figure out what he meant. I’d just told him that after the/… Read full post »

I’m not the most techno-hip person on the planet. I mean, I am competent but I do have a natural learning on many aspects of “getting myself out there.” Conventional wisdom says to not show my growing pains – that’s not professional and it is un-attractive. But I know th… Read full post »

Yesterday I took myself down to a very small, very private beach down below Shilshole Bay. There were clouds but the sun glistening a line straight to me from the west. I situated myself in the shadow of a pole, a remnant of an old pier from very… Read full post »
