Seeing is Believing, or Do We See What We Believe?

Ever wonder if you see better with your eyes closed?

When I close my eyes, I see inkblots of light and shadows, and like a Rorschach, I make out tigers, angels, demons, and my favorite, I swear I see Jesus Christ giving me a hug. I know. Sounds so stupid,…

How We Unlearn the Truth as we Grow Up

I remember that age when I discovered I actually didn't know everything, and now I'm reaching an age where I realized I knew more as a child than I ever will as an adult. It's as if we unlearn the spirit as we grow up.

In my youth, I thought I had all the answers. Then I learned as I grew that I knew nothing. I’m now hitting the age where I realize I knew better as a child than I ever did as an…

A Letter to My Children When they are Teens and I’m probably Dead

I was driving today passed a church, and the sign asked something like, “If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, would you live differently today?” My first response was inappropriate, but as my brain drifted, I was thinking…

To Dream of True Love

To Dream of True Love, what love is really true?

This week’s Finish the Sentence Friday is, “While I was sleeping, I dreamt…” I can’t come up with anything poetic to go with it because my dreams are like the subject of autism. Too much info. They should be a…

I Need You

As I hop through Maslow’s hierarchy, I find what I truly need, from food to soul food. Climbing this pyramid is a high no drug can take you. If I only had financial security. I could afford all the things…

I’d Be Happy If…

I’d be happy if I could just have a little bit more money, enough to be financially secure and stable. I’d be happy if I could just get an extra hour’s sleep or an extra hour to finish up. C’mon…

How to Be Beautiful: A Reflection of Beauty

How to Be Beautiful A Reflection of Beauty by Michelle Grewe of Crumpets and Bollocks

OMG, when I look in the mirror, I’m a fat cow! Ask anyone in high school, I was a, “fat cow.” The whispers of the insecure dressed in holier-than-thou costumes echoed through the hallways of pencils and ammonia, “OMG, look at what that…

I learned…

What I learned in 2015. Forgiveness.

In 2015, I learned… I learned I am getting better. During the Mayan Apocalypse (if you remember that), I hit a new level of crazy between motherhood and sleep deprivation, and a lot of crazy things happened to me (haunted…

What if I don’t care about what you care about? Like Celebrity Deaths?

We all have feelings about celebrity deaths and veteran deaths. Sometimes I feel things you don't feel, and sometimes you feel things I don't feel. That's ok. We may not care about each other's things, but we can care about each other.

In the future, I would like people to be just as sensitive about other people’s feelings as they expect them to be about their’s. In the death of Alan Rickman and David Bowie, many people have mourned these celebrity deaths…

Dear Me: You’re Wrong about Me

Dear Me: A letter to myself telling myself to be less critical of myself.

Dear Me, Every time I look at you, I see failure growing abundantly on your waistline, shriveling up on your face, and crapping all over your home. I know you are intelligent and talented, but I keep telling you that it’s…
