feel your feelings

Hey, I got a new shirt.  It’s a radical mental health shirt.  Feel your feelings.  What do you think? I don’t always like telling people what to do.  But when I tell people what to do, it’s going to be some nurturing thing like this, probably.

witch

A friend asked what it means that I’m a witch.  Thanks for asking!  I’ve described myself as a trikewitch, garden witch, pagan, pantheist Earth-worshiper, and goddess worshiper.  All are true. I was pagan as a teenager and young adult, happy to find a religion that made sense to me.  I’d been worshiping the moon for… Read More »

trike

I wanted to tell you this whole story, how Ming and I went for a trike / bike ride, and this nut fell off my axle that holds on one of the back wheels.  It had fallen off before.  So I was mad, we didn’t deal with it well the first time, and it just… Read More »

comprehensively funny

“Weird Al is very comprehensively funny,” Ming said, smiling, making a gesture of roundness. Yeah, I’m a comprehensively nice spouse.  He could make a gesture of roundness about me.  I excel at round. I’d shared with him the Stevie Wonder song “Pastime Paradise” that Coolio’s song “Gangster’s Paradise” is based on. Wow, I didn’t know… Read More »
