  • "Pretty" by Dorien Grey 1/29/2015 3:47:43 AM
    I know, I know…our attraction to physically pretty people is somehow encoded in our DNA as an imperative. Survival of the fittest and all that. But our humanity should raise us above our genes, and it far too seldom does. One of the least fo... more

  • Observing by Dorien Grey 1/26/2015 3:43:28 AM
    We're all so busy living our lives that we seldom take the time to step back and really look at things. Not the big stuff upon which our existence depends, but on those millions and millions of trivialities that surround us every minute and yet go i... more

  • Crazy mixed up world by Tascha Lee Dresser 1/25/2015 7:23:37 AM
    Has there ever been a time you felt you just did not fit in? Did you ever feel like to try to give into someone's expectations of you would be betraying yourself? If so, I know exactly what it is like. The world we live in is chaotic and constantly ... more

  • Lip Service by Dorien Grey 1/22/2015 3:59:22 AM
    We are a lip-service people. Both as individuals and as a society, we solemnly proclaim belief in and adherence to one thing while doing the exact opposite. There is, far too often, only the most flimsy connection between our words and our actions. G... more

  • Seriously? by Dorien Grey 1/19/2015 3:36:55 AM
    Margaret Hamilton, as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz hit it on the head: “What a world! What a world!” I have spent more than 3/4 of a century bumbling through life avoiding reality whenever possible, thinking I was unique ... more

  • To Run Screaming by Lorene Stunson Hill 1/18/2015 1:20:38 PM
    Kpanlongo - Invitation Dance. - Recreational life cycle. - Chapter Fourteen The first line, of the first letter, in Chapter Fourteen of, “To Dance with Ugly People,” is “My life had become a blur.” Has life ever sent you an invitation ... more

  • Men, Women and relationships by Tascha Lee Dresser 1/16/2015 5:31:22 PM
    Well, It has been some time since I wrote a new blog here. So to begin the new year I am going to write this one on relationships and the difference between male and female attitudes towards them. Please bare with me. It has been told to m... more

  • You, Me, and Snowflakes by Dorien Grey 1/15/2015 4:05:49 AM
    Glancing out the window during our most recent light snowfall, I got to thinking about snowflakes and our metaphysical resemblance to them. (Nice segue, Dorien!) Each of us, be we human or snowflake, is unique, though when viewed in large nu... more

  • Boogeyman by Dorien Grey 1/12/2015 3:28:40 AM
    There is a boogeyman who lives beneath my bed, and in my closet, and who stalks me every hour of every day, no matter where I go. I never see him, of course...boogeymen never show themselves...but I know he is there, and he knows I know. He saturates... more

  • "You're Nothing!" by Dorien Grey 1/8/2015 4:06:57 AM
    The human need to feel a sense of belonging is a subject seldom discussed openly, but is an important factor in each of our lives. While we may not think much about it, you can be absolutely certain that advertisers and those out to champion some cau... more

  • Who Do You Think You Are - A Writer? by Kathy Marvel 1/6/2015 1:39:04 PM
    Who Do You Think You Are – A Writer??? Yes. Yes, I do. As a writer, I can tell you that it truly takes a very long time to believe it enough to actually say these words, “I am a writer.” They are definitely not easy words to say. As writers, ... more

  • Egotism vs Egoism by Dorien Grey 1/5/2015 4:05:05 AM
    There is a very fine but very sharp divide between egotism and egoism, both of which are centered on the self. But it is the assumption of superiority that divides the two. Egotists have the luxury of automatically assuming they are aways right; egoi... more

  • Small Flaws by Dorien Grey 12/29/2014 4:06:01 AM
    I recently bought a timer so that when I do laundry in my apartment building I can know when the time comes to take clothes from the washer and put them into the drier, then when to go take them out of the drier. I chose a streamlined, small, simple-... more

  • I Love My Life by Herman Yenwo 12/18/2014 6:40:10 PM
    Think about it folks! Once you become Mr President, someone follows you everywhere. Even when you are in the small house sitting on the pot, someone sits or stands outside waiting for you. You my ride around in something called Air Force one, but... more

  • A Matter of Distance by Dorien Grey 12/18/2014 3:57:33 AM
    The continual volcanic eruption which is my mind is forever spewing out chunks of thought. Usually, there are so many of them that I can't concentrate on any particular one as they fall around me like rain. However, a random thought will frequently s... more

  • Being unpredictable by Herman Yenwo 12/16/2014 2:09:15 PM
    I am unpredictable in a very nice way. In fact being unpredictable can more often than not, save your life. The Israelites and the current Israeli Mossad are unpredictable for good reason. The CIA, The SS are all unpredictable for good reaso... more

  • Cliffhangers by Dorien Grey 12/15/2014 3:41:36 AM
    “Cliffhangers” are a time-honored tradition of luring an audience back for the next episode of a series. It all stems from the one of the original movie serials, The Perils of Pauline in 1914 in which each 12-to-15-minute episode ended in the heroine... more

  • Logic and Fun by Dorien Grey 12/11/2014 3:51:34 AM
    I really enjoy a good, rousing everything-blowing-up-and-falling-down-and-people-running-around-in-total-panic/confusion “end of the world as we know it" disaster film, or an imagination-stretching outer-space yarn outer-space yarn—as long as everyth... more

  • "I Hear the Mermen Singing...." by Dorien Grey 12/8/2014 4:06:08 AM
    We can’t change reality, but we can change our perception of it. I’ve been doing it since I was a child and it has served me very well. Our bodies are bound by the laws of physics and time and we are all but powerless to change them. But our minds ar... more

  • Mantras and Acorns by Dorien Grey 12/4/2014 3:25:06 AM
    Odd how something can be sitting quietly in some dimly-lit and dusty corner of your mind for years without giving it a conscious thought. It wasn't until this morning that I was conscious of a word my mind had been repeating in the softest of whisper... more
