There was a time….dark and divine….

There was a time, dark and divine
Exciting and new, shameful and true
Free to explore we had it all
Towering trust, insatiable lust

Clouding the truth, both of us knew
This sordid affair, is ending in tears
Yes we would go on, knowing the wrong
Until the day, it was taken away

Oh, all our love, fell down to Earth.
Here, broken and cold, with great remorse

But for a while it all made sense
It might have been just a dark pretense
But you had me
And I loved it

To be with you, to be the one
To live a lie
It really got me all excited
I felt wanted

Then in the night, the sorrow inside
Was taken away. Deliverance came
Fell from the sky. Heaven replied
Salvation in streams, silent and clean.

All that we were, all that we knew
Faded away with tears in the rain.
Yes all that we were, all that we knew
Is fading away like tears in the rain.

All that we were, all that we knew
Fading away
All that we were, all that we knew
Fading away
All that we were, all that we knew
Fading away
All that we were, all that we knew
Fading away

Snow? SNOW??!!!!!


10:10 am October 14th, 2018 in the Twin Cities and we have SNOW!!!

Mother Nature, are you fucking kidding Me? We’ve already had a humid Summer, Gloomy Autumn and now this?! I can take solace in the fact that it’s a light snow and despite the fact that it’s accumulating on My lawn, I know it won’t last. (It better not last!)

Designing Women…

… (yeah, the TV show from the 1980’s)…..My new obsession! Currently watching season 1. Ooooo, the 80’s fashions! I am feeling totally inspired!

A recent news story got Me thinking about the series again and so I ordered Season 1 from Amazon. I love, love LOVE Julia Sugarbaker! 😍

(And props to Linda Bloodworth-Thomason for calling out shitty male behavior.  👍)

hahahahaha! ME TOO!!

Well, it wasn’t bible study, it was Sunday School and I know I pissed off a few of My teachers for the very same reason. At the time I didn’t really understand the (negative) reaction I was getting for asking questions about the bible stories fairy tales they were trying to feed us. I remember one of them was about ‘turning the other cheek’ and I wanted to know WHY you would do that when someone has hurt you, why would you submissively allow them to hurt you more?? Why would you “give them the other cheek”? I wasn’t given an explanation and My Sunday school teacher wasn’t welcoming to any discussion about it. Why?? (Oh I know why……..) And when I tried to press on about it, she told Me if I kept asking that she would get My father. (Nice…..) I thought My dad would have been pissed at the time (he probably would have), so I dropped it.

BUT…..from that day forward I was done with religion. I’m just supposed to drink the kool-aid and not question anything?  Nah, I’m good!  lol

I’m astounded that there are people on this beautiful blue/green planet of ours that really think you must believe in some ‘guy in the sky’ in order to be a decent human being. Otherwise, you know, you need people pounding on your door with their little pamphlets, telling you that you need to be saved.

And as for the other cheek thing, I’ve never believed in putting energy into something as negative as revenge. One of My FAVORITE quotes ever is:

“The best revenge is a life well lived”.

And karma….. 😈   HAHAHAHAHA  😜
