The fungibility of time, space, and matter

Posted on December 26, 2016 at 9:59pm 9 Comments

So it's been over a year since I've been here. Many familiar names are still around, I see, and it's good to see you and remember the good times and reads past.  I'm sorry I've been absent.  I have a plausible, if not wholly exonerating excuse.

Over a year and some are gone, I understand, now forever. I am the same, and yet I am not the same.  The things I wanted, that I was clear about seeing in the future, like finishing things I started, that dread n-o-v-e-l, they all got…

Sometimes Abortion Saves

Posted on June 24, 2013 at 5:34am 7 Comments

A few years ago, I was driving back from a workshop I taught on how to do art with kids with disabilities in Temple, Texas. It was a beautiful, big-skied, sunny afternoon, and I was looking forward to the drive.

I was stopped at an intersection about to get on I-35 back to Austin, and there was, in the median, a man, under a six foot red and black swastika poster, and a woman holding a huge color photograph of a horribly aborted fetus. A small sign stuck in the ground near them read,…

Hullo, dahling. Too long (kiss, kiss). Been away trolling for readers. Do love the invitation, though. Vacation soon; must get together. Thanks again ever so much. XOXO (Aztec goddess of love and wealth)
