Hello!

Welcome! I’m Glad You Stopped By

This website is an outlet for my writing be it posts about the craft of writing, my creative work or my personal views on current events.

Alas, politics have been weighing heaviest on my mind.

While I have always maintained that the POTUS, all differences aside, is deserving of respect and deference due the title, the current President, and his words and actions do not fall under the category of typical difference of opinion.

Therefore combating the current administrations agenda of hate and lies has prompted me to work towards replacing any and all members of congress who work against the rights and dignity of all Americans.

It was inspiring to witness the incredible show of unity across the world during the 2017 Women’s March. Heart wrenching, yet reassuring to witness the ralling of young adults led by the victims from Parkland, Florida. These events and others, coalesce issues such as women’s reproductive rights, gun control, the killing, and imprisonment of people of color, the need for protecting the safety and well-being of our immigrant communities, and LGBTQ communities, into an agenda that is actionable. One with which we can measure candidates worthy of our votes. Those who support and safe guard the laws intended to protect and serve all. Those who support and fight to enact progressive policies that enrich every member of society, not just the wealthiest.

I know how easy it is to let outrage cloud ones judgement, to deafen oneself to opposing views. I struggle mightily to maintain an open mind and civil tongue. But, I am trying to act, react, inform, in ways that support what I believe in, without falling prey to hate. 

I strive to be generous of spirit, and kind. To listen without judgement to stories across the spectrum, from those who are like-minded to those who are polar opposite. It is only through our shared narratives that the divide between us can be narrowed. I truly wish to understand the needs of all, and how we can find common ground on which to move forward.

This does not mean accepting behavior that is incongruent to ones values, or morals, but should be in support of this, our pledge…in it’s original form.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
