Laughing Goddess

Laughing Goddess by RM Allen Jan 2018 The commencement of January always finds me assessing the outcome of 365 days of sitting with my “Word of the Year” (WOY) for the previous year.

The First “American” Eclipse!

I read somewhere that summer 2017 is the “summer of resistance.” Resisting, persisting, insisting; it is pretty much a spectrum and I am on it – trying to find balance in the middle somewhere. Trying to adapt to the changing political climate and find common ground. Listening to the news is still a perplexing activityContinue reading “The First “American” Eclipse!”

2012: The Accidental Goddess

It is 2012. I do not claim to adhere to any one particular religion. I attend a Universalist-Unitarian church, and the UU tradition accepts all of the religions listed above (and more) into their fold. The only doctrine of the church is Love. It is that simple, and I am into simple. If you wereContinue reading “2012: The Accidental Goddess”
