Picture me, fanning myself, with a large paper fan. On a porch somewhere. Kinda sweaty. Catching my breath with you. Connecting. It is soooooooo much responsibility to be a woman right now.

Happy International Women’s Day, sister. In my world, every single day is International Women’s Day. Slogging, sashaying and twerking up the feminist highway in celebration of women, it’s how I have chosen to spend my life. So, I often just ignore the day and slog and twerk along, in my usual fashion. But this year,...

Everything worth having starts with desire. A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about how I planted the seeds for my relationship with my partner, Peter.

Like oh so many of us, I am in the midst of another huge personal transformation. Transformations can look so many ways. Graduating from university. Beginning divorce proceedings.

How often do you agree to do something, that you do not really, really want to do? Kiss them. Agree to help out. Stay at the party later. Go to the movie they picked. Listen to their problems. Work late. Again. Do you find your desire to please other people is an even stronger pull...

The conversations that we are having as women are changing with such velocity. We are seeing in bold relief — even in our highest offices of government — how consistently overlooked, ignored, undervalued, and disparaged the experience of Woman has been and is still, in this patriarchal world. It is time for women to power...

It is not easy to get centered. Especially now. A trip through the headlines can whip us all around the whirligig. Not to mention the sheer daily brutality of living in a patriarchal world culture. If we don’t buckle up our protective gear, before we head out, we can get pierced by a stray arrow....

I was getting a coffee when the news blasted this report: “The storm of a lifetime!” I know so many of us are in it. Truly in, in it. Big time. You, me and Florence. And Isaac, Helene, Barijat, Joyce, and Mangkhut. We’re in a swirl of hurricanes, typhoons, tropical depressions of the real and...
