Do the Good Guys Always Win?

Yesterday I talked with a 5-year-old about Hannukah.

He asked me, “Do the good guys always win?”

I know he’s 5, but I had to tell him the truth.

“ Both sides in any war believe that their side is good. But the winners get to write the history books.”

He gave me a blank look. So I told…

A Letter to Dr. Jane Goodall - Letters from the Edge

Dear Dr. Jane Goodall - I've lost hope for the Earth.

Did you know it's illegal to kill a human being but okay to go out and just randomly kill an animal?

WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT?

Ain't humans just hairless apes?

We should be able to go and just randomly kill them without becoming police officers or fire chiefs.

I…

Words for Snow and Water



I grew up hearing that the Inuit have over one hundred words for snow. Nobody could tell me what these words were or what they meant.

Finally, on the web, I found a page that explained the words. They are really phrases combined into words – long words without spaces. The words mean things like snow sparkling in moonlight, snow sparkling in sunlight, hard packed snow, light fluffy snow, avalanche, falling snow,…

Idiomatic Insults

I don’t keep up with slang. Especially insults. Never have. In junior high, “bitchin” sounded like an insult, so I never used the word.

Lately I have received an email from a man who called me a name I didn’t recognize, followed by a link to his website. He informed me that this term was an insult. He even told me to click the link and “look it up.” Like I care what his made-up insult is supposed to refer to? They’re…

The wide Path and the Narrow One

When I studied comparative religions in college, I learned the terms Mahayana and Hinayana, meaning the Wide Path and the Narrow Path. I understood that the Hinayana path meant becoming a monk and living in a monastery. I thought maybe the Mahayana path meant going to religious services once a week.

The Mayahana path was for most people and the Hinayana path was for a few people who were simply cut out for…

Breaking in to a Dead Man's Computer

A client called me. One of her co-workers had gifted her a laptop computer that used to belong to her recently deceased husband. My client wanted me to check it out and put it on her network.

The computer looked okay – the keys were clean, the monitor was clean.

The first screen gave us a choice of Windows 7 or Vista. This indicated that the computer was probably 8 years…

Art and Science



Taking an art class is a different world from the science world in which I got my BA. Yet there are similarities. Both world teach techniques. Both worlds have expected results as well as surprises. And both worlds teach a new way of seeing.…

Voodoo Doll on the Refrigerator

A man at Quaker meeting stood to speak the message that was in his heart.

He awoke in the morning to see a voodoo doll on his family’s refrigerator. Someone had given this doll to his wife as a gift.

His wife explained that the doll came with two pins: one for enemies and one for friends. He thought about this, since he is the kind of man who would never intentionally…

A Brief History Of Nature's Sunshine Products

I’ve used Nature’s Sunshine herbal supplements since 1979. At that time NSP was the only Canadian company that “encapsulated” herbs in specific dosages, making them easy to swallow and avoiding their sometimes bitter taste. I’d like to share the background of Nature's Sunshine Products.…

Correct Spelling?

Correct Spelling?

I’m working on a book in which an egg hatches a caterpillar.  I want to describe the egg as miniscule.   My spell checker immediately changes it to minuscule.  When I insist that I want miniscule, the word gets a red underline as an…

My First Visit to Planned Parenthood

I was 17. I did not consider myself a sexual being. The sex-ed class at my high school was mainly a vocabulary lesson. And I had no idea what an erector set had to do with babies. And whatever sex was, we weren’t supposed to do because it would cause babies. And babies would ruin our lives.

I’d had trouble getting a tampon in and I didn’t believe my then boyfriend (now husband for the past 48 years) when he explained…

Two Kinds of Theft

Two kinds of thieves

My mother, who is 92 and uses a walker, was pushing a cart full of her groceries to her car. A man followed her. When she opened the trunk to put in her groceries, he opened the hood and appeared to remove something.

He told her there was something seriously wrong with her car and she needed an $8500 part to fix it, which he just happened to…

Sears Dryer Installation Blues

We bought a washer and dryer from Sears online.

The first time the delivery man had both the washer and the dryer on his truck. He delivered and installed the washer. But the washer pan was too close to the wall for a back installation, so the dryer would need to be vented on the side. The dryer is switchable. But the driver did not know how to switch it. So, he took the dryer back to the warehouse. He delivered and installed the washer. He also left the vent pipes and elbow…

Sanders vs. Trump

Yesterday I met a man who was a Donald Trump fan.

I asked why.

He said he likes the fact that Trump is a businessman.

I said, Trump has bankrupted three companies yet managed to make millions for himself while destroying his employees’ pensions.

He said that’s just because laws…

The Pope is Coming

The Pope is coming! The Pope is coming! And some of it fell on my city.

I admire and respect this Pope, even though I’m not Catholic. But he’s not a rock star. I don’t understand the magic of being in the crowd when he speaks.

I live in the green zone. That means that buses won’t be running through my neighborhood when his eminence is here. If I drive a car out of…

Barnes and Noble's Mistake

In 1978, I wrote a picture book story: Ladybugs for Loretta. My friend Francie illustrated it. Because our only publication option was print (ebooks hadn’t been invented yet) we decided to limit the colors to black and red. That meant two pieces of art for each…
