Growing Old Gracefully Or Else.

Today I had to put on reading glasses to decipher the directions on rug cleaning foam. I literally could not see the small letters on the package. Oh, that’s different. I remember being 14-years old, a sophomore in high school, and being convinced with all my teenaged wisdom, that I would never live to be Read More

Narcissists: Evil vs Dangerous.

Sometimes I refer to narcissists (NPD) as evil people, but it makes me uncomfortable. They are damaged human beings and I wouldn’t want to be in their place.

We separated after 5 years of “normal marriage” but remained emotionally and financially embroiled for 6 more years. Finally, Read More

I went to carnivals, flea markets, arts and crafts fairs, and amusement parks. By mid-month, everyone I knew was pissed off Read More

Codependent Like God.

A basic Hebrew prayer says: Blessed are you, God, king of the world, who created many living things with their deficiencies. As an American Jew, I used to argue with God about this prayer. Why did you create us with deficiencies? Why do we need to be deficient? Why didn’t you make us perfect and Read More
