This morning a red cardinal pecked away at the feeder hanging in my patio bird habitat. As I drove off to work, I thought about the delicate bones and feathers, the lightweight and aerodynamic body of the bird, and the interesting fact that birds are not hierarchical. In other words,... Continue »

Just when you started to think that your life had become dull and uninteresting to other people, you suddenly realize that you’ve been a long-running target of the weak-minded and categorical. I say weak-minded because even with a solid education the cause of your misery is still oblivious to common... Continue »

Another is to be the sort of person who is missed when you're not. The first involves making noise. The second involves making a difference. Continue »

"You can't argue with success." Of course you can. Conventional wisdom says you shouldn't bother. But arguing with failure is dumb. Failure doesn't need to be argued with, it's already failed. It takes guts to argue with success, guts and... Continue »

Working for most of my life in the trucking business has given me the opportunity to deal on a personal basis with all kinds of men. Some of them are complete angels, and not put off, nor a bit threatened, by little old me--the lady driver. These are men of great competence, and secure in their station of life. They have nothing to prove, and they are instantly aware of their lesser counterparts: the insecure male. The insecure male has a great deal to prove. He is an incessant whiner, and two-faced in all respects. You will often hear him... Continue »

My child had a collection of sticks standing like little soldiers beside the front door.

His sticks would accompany him for walks around the neighborhood, a way to pass the time and make boyish discoveries. It was a learning opportunity for him, and it tested the patience and social maturity of those around us. Of course, they couldn't pass the test, and as soon as my child headed off to school in another state, someone took his... Continue »

For the last couple of years Mitch McConnell, senator from Kentucky, has made himself a household figure by his constant fussing about healthcare reform. I don't know if he is evil or not, but if I was set to benefit in some way from the new health care reforms, and I was listening to the stuff coming from McConnell's mouth, I would probably think he was Satan incarnate. It is inexplicable that our fellow Americans would stand up in front of millions and complain because more people are going to receive health care benefits. In fact, it is surreal. Since...

Sometimes I get so tired out here. This is my life and it is the only one I have ever really had...but it is as if a demon is holding a fishing rod in front of my hood, and I am chasing the money dangling from his line for miles and miles, until it all becomes years and years of useless effort. Meanwhile, my hard earned money is worth less and it goes fewer places, while I miss my son's childhood and give up on my other dreams. Even though I am just a woman driving a truck, sometimes on...
