My Thoughts On The Existence of “White Privilege”

I've been reading a lot lately about "racism" and "white privilege". I'd like to introduce a new perspective, if you will. I will start by saying that the color of a person's skin SHOULD NOT matter. For all those folks whose gut reaction is, "But, it DOES matter!"= WHY? The very fact that there are … Continue reading My Thoughts On The Existence of “White Privilege”

How To Lose My Attention In 30 Seconds Or Less…

I read. A lot. No...really. I read every single day. Books, magazine articles, news articles, blog posts, opinions, stories... I read it all. Okay, not every single word of everything I read is actually read. Why? Because a lot of what I run across bores me to tears. So, I have decided to outline all … Continue reading How To Lose My Attention In 30 Seconds Or Less…

R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

I feel like walking around and belting out the Aretha tune at the top of my lungs. "R-E-S-P-E-C-T...find out what it means to me"! People are just utterly disrespectful anymore. And I mean EVERYONE! Here's the deal: I don't give a flying rat's ass what anyone's opinions are. Everyone has an opinion. Life is full … Continue reading R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

Sixth grade!! Magical words, they were, and music to Angry Amy's ears. Junior high was finally here, and she could, at last, participate in a more grown up world.

Time: A Story of Too Little

It's true that time is precious, and also fleeting. It's also true that, no matter how much we think we can "make time" for things, we truly can't. For instance, I have resolved myself to the understanding that, despite my best intentions, this blog takes a back burner to the incessant barrage of crap that … Continue reading Time: A Story of Too Little

‘Tis The Season…

Every year, the lights go up, the hustle and bustle begin, and people become rats in a glorious maze of packages and bags.  I always tell myself that THIS will be the year that I "feel the magic".  It has, unfortunately, been many a year since I have felt the "magic".  You remember, the feeling of … Continue reading ‘Tis The Season…

The Rise Of The Machines…

Blog is reblogged from a previous site: I am the sole author of this content.    I was born in the time before computers became the bane of our existence.  The truth is, I still remember what that was like...even though I was only a kid when I was introduced to the Commodore 64.  Yep...that … Continue reading The Rise Of The Machines…

Call Me W.I.P.

Oh yes I am, a bonafide "Work In Progress", or W.I.P. for short.  Somehow I think I've always been, and yet still I know I'll always be, and that's all there is to it.  But what does that mean?  I can say it about myself, and I know that it's true, yet I am unsure … Continue reading Call Me W.I.P.
