My Mother’s Heart

My Mother’s Heart

I remember my fascination as a young girl of six or seven, laying on my parent’s king size bed watching my mother comb out her long, light brown hair. My mother was always different than all the other moms. Sure, she was sweet, made cookies and drove us to the mall. But her life is a story about surviving,…

The Artist

The Artist

You say you don’t know how you feel How admirable your resolve Ambiguity adds to your appeal Infatuation without getting involved Their pretty faces individually believe Your heart belongs to only she With smiles and flowers you deceive Playing selfish games with insecurity Without romancing me, you charmed me In innocence, I believed in lies Tender touching an illusion…

Lip Gloss and Roadblocks Along the Female Career Highway

Lip Gloss and Roadblocks Along the Female Career Highway

When I was very little, we had a big window in the family room, and every weekday morning when my dad would go to work, I would rush to the window and stand behind the drawn curtain facing our gravel driveway. My dad would start up the car and back out of the driveway, and my sister and I would…

Belly Busting Ever Since ’76

Belly Busting Ever Since ’76

I am a reasonable person. I try to spend my thinking life concerned with the greater good. I try to tune out the “white noise.” Yet, I have come to accept the presence of a particular hiccup in my thinking life. It’s always in there, even if I am not actively aware of it. I have body confidence, life…

The Doctor Who Wanted to Cut Open My Face

The Doctor Who Wanted to Cut Open My Face

Looking for a new doctor can be a headache, and scary. Your health care provider will usually give you a long list of approved doctors with very little information on their reputation, ranking or personality. Of course, you can search for a doctor on your own, but it can be a pretty frustrating endeavor. A couple years ago I…

Video Gaming Addiction: A real threat?

Video Gaming Addiction: A real threat?

We all know the stories. The Korean couple who left their new baby to starve nearly to death while they “fed” and cared for their online baby. The warfare gaming addiction of autistic Newtown mass murderer Adam Lanza. No one wants to imagine the horror. An article by Jack Flanagan that was published in The Week, classifying obsessive video…

Why Corn is Your Worst Enemy and How to Kick the Habit

Why Corn is Your Worst Enemy and How to Kick the Habit

Anyone who knows me well is familiar with my Achilles heel in gastronomy: tortilla chips. Like a lover’s lust, I am drawn to them whenever they are near. I see them, I court them, I devour them. It’s really bad. I have eaten tortilla chips nearly once a week, every week, every year for the past 20 years. I…

Enough is enough is too much

Enough is enough is too much

I recently read two unrelated articles that touched on a worrisome trend taking place among affluent communities in the United States, which is the over-indulgence and permissive irresponsibility of wealthy and upper middle class teenagers in America. The first was an from an article in the December issue of Psychology Today called “The Problem With Rich Kids” by Suniya…

What is the Silent Killer of Women?

What is the Silent Killer of Women?

In case you didn’t know, February is American Heart Month. For the young and healthy, or seemingly so, this is probably not important news; rather just another cutesy label of the month. But there are some pretty big reasons why you should care, and why you should examine your diet for a sneaky little culprit which may be causing…

The Benefits of Kefir

The Benefits of Kefir

Kefir. You’ve probably heard of it, but you may not really know what it is, how you eat it, or why. But it is reputed to aid and cure a wide range of maladies, from acne and skin conditions, to depression and fatigue, to allergies, high cholesterol, diabetes, insomnia, and irritable bowel syndrome, among many inflammatory diseases. But what…

I will never, ever, ever do Botox! Or will I?

I will never, ever, ever do Botox! Or will I?

For years now I have been saying that I will never, ever do Botox. I will gracefully pass through the hallowed halls of aging: the crows feet, the laugh lines, the sagging chin, those little droopy folds at the corners of your mouth. This is a vow I made years ago, and I have stuck to it pretty well,…

Social Deviants in the Locker Room

Social Deviants in the Locker Room

I’m health-minded. I do all the right stuff and sport some pretty insane washboard abs under just about a half-inch thick layer of what my daughter calls “fluff.” I try to eat healthy, get enough rest, and work out almost every day on my lunch hour. I take my workouts seriously, and I like to get in, get it…
