Another days work, on the first great pyramid.

I woke up in darkness. No one had lit the morning fires. That was unusual so I stayed in my sleeping quarters for a moment. I could hear snoring. It was like a blade sharpening on a stone wheel. Ptomeses. He’d broken his nose moons ago when we were kids. It had never healed right.Continue reading “Another days work, on the first great pyramid.”

The progress of women in the recent past from the pov of an almost “older” woman

I grew up in a passively sexist society. The 1980’s. This time warranted the song “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper. I can relate. I washed dishes while my brother, the same age, was left to his own devices with his transformers and his castle grey skull. My She-Ra and little ponies wouldContinue reading “The progress of women in the recent past from the pov of an almost “older” woman”

Sexual Vs Sensual: Part 2

She was in the elevator….. she regretted her decision immediately. He wanted sex. She couldn’t give him that. He might just take it. It would be be understandable if he just took it. She hadn’t thought this thorough. She braced herself for anything. If anything, she’d have empty sex and it would last till theContinue reading “Sexual Vs Sensual: Part 2”

Sensual vs Sexual: a narrative story Part 1

She took her time walking through midtown. It was already 1:30 AM. The last train had left the station at 1:15. She’d been working at the club. She’d made a connection with a customer and gotten lost in his eyes. Normally she’d give herself a good amount of time to transform into her everyday self.Continue reading “Sensual vs Sexual: a narrative story Part 1”

Hot Flash

As a woman I’ve often heard about hot flashes. These are things that happen to older women and they’re often met with an eye roll. Like they’re not really happening and should just be shrugged off. I admit, as a young woman, whenever an older woman complained about a hot flash, I thought she wasContinue reading “Hot Flash”

Give yourself a gift and recognize a gift

Everyday I judge myself for the things I haven’t done. I don’t have kids. I don’t own a business. I haven’t changed the world as a whole. What if, helping an older lady up the stairs on the subway platform was enough. What if deciding to be positive today was enough. What if saying, excuseContinue reading “Give yourself a gift and recognize a gift”

Another man’s trash: Why You should mindful of want you say

We don’t all understand what the other has been through. What they’ve experienced throughout their lives. What upsets one may not upset the other. What is wonderful to one is triggering to another. Let’s talk about the word “triggering.“ Some may think it means to gently annoy. Or to make someone roll their eyes orContinue reading “Another man’s trash: Why You should mindful of want you say”

Hello menopause, we’ve been waiting for you. Here’s where my mind goes in this process.

Getting older is hard. Especially for a woman. Appearance wise I mean. As women,our worth is often tied to how desirable we are to men. Perky breasts, bright eyes, supple skin. All of that is maintained by hormones. Hormones that rely on you bleeding every month. Hormones that rely on you being of child bearingContinue reading “Hello menopause, we’ve been waiting for you.

The Phoenix from the flames

We’ve all been through hell. We’ve all thought about what we want. What we need. What we’re willing to accept for a paycheck. We’ve been there. We’ve been absolute in our findings. We’ve re entered society. We’ve found our approach different. We’ve tried to adhere to our knew findings. It’s worked to a point. WorkContinue reading “The Phoenix from the flames”
