Experience

Join Me In Making Magic

I grew up in a home where, when it came to entertaining and the Holidays, the hostess (IE my Mother) did all the work. Aside from cleaning the garage just before the party, my father did little to help. The guests never lifted a finger. Their every need was anticipated. Their glasses were always full […]

The Decision

For as long as I can remember, my cycles have been really bad.  When I was young, I was diagnosed with severe dysmenorrhea.  Which is basically the medical term for period from hell.  Years of being on birth control helped to level out the pain.  Around eight years ago, I took myself off birth control, […]

Your Worst Day

When was your last bad day? I mean really bad, full of despair, ugly-cry bad day? Mine was February 5, 2018. Nine days before (January 27) I had surgery to fix a recently broken ankle and a torn ligament. I was spending six weeks of non weight-bearing recovery in Seattle (to be closer to the […]

Friendship

Have you ever lost a friend but didn’t know why?  You just wake up one day and realize they are no longer in your life.  From a decision not of your making.  For no reason, from no incident, or misunderstanding, or fight; nothing you can recall.   Some time ago, two female friends vanished from […]

Confessions of a Bionic Wonder Woman In Two Parts

PART ONE August of last year, I assigned myself 12 Labors to be completed by March 1, 2018 for Emerald City Comicon in Seattle. A voluntary, seven-month journey of growth, self-exploration, and development. (For more information and a list of the Labors, please visit previous blog posts.) The idea came about my Freshman year of […]

Wonder Woman at Seattle Children’s Hospital

After attending last years Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, for the first time in costume (as Wonder Woman), it occurred to me that I should reach out to Seattle Children’s Hospital and see if I could set up a time to visit. It took several back and forth emails, but a date and time were […]

Labor #1 Compassion & Understanding

Labor #1  Compassion & Understanding – Make up and personally deliver 5 Blessing Bags for the less fortunate. Today I handed out the 5th Blessing Bag. I’m not necessarily approaching these Labors in order, it just happened that I got a jump on this one. I am actually working on several Labors at once, as […]

12 Labors Part 1

It’s well known that Hercules had 12 Labors. The twelve labors of Hercules are a series of episodes concerning a penance carried out by Heracles. Driven mad by Hera (queen of the gods), Hercules slew his son, daughter, and wife Megara. After recovering his sanity, Hercules deeply regretted his actions; he was purified by King […]

Wonder Woman Movie Review Of Sorts W/O Spoilers

To give an “above average” (movie reference) review, I saw the film twice opening weekend at probably one of the best cinema experiences in the Pacific Northwest – the Cinerama in downtown Seattle. Opening night (Friday, June 2) I saw Wonder Woman with my good friend Ann, whom I have known since grade school. She […]

Tough Like a Girl

Reader Discretion Advised Last night my husband and I were watching the Showtime series Homeland on TV (episode “R is for Romeo”). The scene set-up: Madam President-Elect is a guest on an Alt-Right radio show that is running a smear campaign against her by targeting her son who was a US soldier who died in […]
