Am I A Feminazi?

Is anyone even called that anymore? Or has the astroid disrupted the delicately patched road to recovery for denigrating words used to describe women who essentially know what they want and one of the things they don't want: a guy like Rush Limbaugh who will never know what it is to be a woman in any capacity telling us when we do, when we are…

Written August 4, 2011, all I can say is, "My girl, how you have grown..."

 In late 2002, I began trying to rid myself of a twenty year collection of material acquistions in the form of beautiful furniture, rugs, art, glass work, and books. There were three hundred pairs of carefully…

The Heavy Steed

The yoke she carried was big and unwieldy

The road she took was wild and winding

Travel she did until the steed grew heavy on his  legs

She named him Garland for his gallop

She tamed him when he was a lad

Travel she did until the steed grew heavy on his  legs

A restless wanderer, a youthful…

#JeSuis12thMAN

Everything you hear in other parts of this country and the world is true about 12th MAN. I do mean hear. Unless you have been in downtown Seattle during a Seahawks game at Century Link Field, then you cannot possibly truly know what the sound of that forceful collective…

Throwback Thursday: What If It's All as Horrible as You Think It Is?

I wrote this on July 12, 2012 at almost a year homeless: What If  it's All as Horrible as You Think It Is?  I had started a grassroots project called, Got Compassion? 

What if this world, this life, is nothing more than a…

The Church, The Lunch, and The New Wardrobe

Yesterday, the manager of the place we're staying told us that, on Tuesdays,  there's a community lunch four blocks away at a church. So, today, we walked to the church, another bright cold day here, and enjoyed a delightful lunch of shepherd's pie and tuna casserole, green salad and fruit salad. We talked with people sitting at the same table and when I…

Downtown Seattle Today: Je Suis Charlie

J and I went downtown today to check our mail and see our friends. It was beautiful outside; bright and cold. When we got off the bus and walked toward the 3rd Street shelter, I began to see familiar faces. We crossed the street and I saw my friend, Marcy. She was quieter than usual. We went up into the shelter to the coffee counter and it was quiet.…

LL Bean in 1970: Too Cool For School

I was just thinking about an assignment we had in school when I was, I think, eight years old. We were asked to go through a large collection of LL Bean catalogs and make a list then collage of all the things we would need to go on a survival trek. I perceived that to mean surviving outdoors, in the woods. I could have perceived it as surviving Winter in the…

Coming Out of The Closet

I'm just thinking of how for the first two or so years I was homeless, I wore designer clothes from clothing banks. After that, I lived in the woods and wore the same pair of long shorts and little top for the Summer, and on the street, I wore all kinds of things. And now, in making this transition to…
