You Can’t Say Bitch in Bean Town

Well, as yet, you still can, but legislation has been introduced in Massachusetts by Democrat Dan Hunt to ban the derogatory use of the word "bitch" and to make such use of the word punishable.   This Meredith Brooks song wasn't ever a favorite of mine, but that could change. https://youtu.be/_ivt_N2Zcts   Everything is offensive… Continue reading You Can’t Say Bitch in Bean Town

The Struggle is Real, Said the Modern Old Fashioned Lady

Well, big surprise here, I bailed on Twitter again. Then I changed my mind. Then I bailed again. There was this alleged news story about a California congress woman's messy divorce that I'd likely have never seen had it not shown up in my Twitter feed. To me, it was kind of a seedy story,… Continue reading The Struggle is Real, Said the Modern Old Fashioned Lady

Patti Smith, Just Kids

I loved this memoir from Patti Smith of her early years in New York with Robert Mapplethorpe. Some of the subject matter won't be everyone's cup of tea, the title doesn't reveal that this is a book for adults, and it is very gritty in places. If you are unfamiliar with who Robert Mapplethorpe was… Continue reading Patti Smith, Just Kids

Thankful

Here's my message to writers and artists, to anyone in a creative endeavor, who might be feeling discouraged... if it is really your dream, in your one and only heart of hearts, then don't quit. It's that easy and it is that hard, that simple and that complicated, don't quit. I consider it to be… Continue reading Thankful

Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save

During the fall months of 2008 and into 2009, reality slipped away from me. Amid the avalanche of dissipating solidity descending into complete confusion and chaos of thought, I threw more than twenty years of writing, of work, into a cauldron of flames. Most of it without ever looking at what it was that I… Continue reading Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save
