Tid Bit from DianeRavitch from Teresa Hanafin

Former Obama speechwriter (and Mass. native) Jon Favreau wrote, “The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.”

Now Wouldn’t That Be a Nice Miracle?


Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my Trump to keep.

Shower him with earned acclaim

Free him from a past of shame

Fill him with a mother’s pride

Make him warm and snug inside

Help him honor and love his wife

Renewing vows he made for life

Protect him from the NRA

Maybe even help him pray

Gentle his heart to help the poor

Bringing peace and what’s more

Give him respect for law and order

Melt with tears the southern border

Help his word be strong and true

Loving those of every hue

Moms and babies need each other

Help him find his inner mother

Let Mr. Mueller be his friend

And let the both of them defend

All the hopes and aspirations

Of a just United Nations.

Mental Health Is Like A Teeter-Totter–Merbear Re-blog

Not thoughts–Feelings! I feel like I’m there alongside you, I’m re-blogging.

Merbear's World

When I called this past Monday about making a psych appointment, I was given two options.

Option A: Go to the main campus of the hospital system I’m currently using for my healthcare and wait for many hours in the ER. 

Option B: Wait until September 11th, the first available appointment for a psych evaluation at the smaller and much closer office building.

Since I’m not currently experiencing a mental health crisis, I decided on option B.

Mental health is a precarious thing. It reminds me of a teeter-totter. It goes up and it goes down, sometimes so quickly that you’ll lose your balance and fall on your ass with a loud thud.

It’s not that simple getting help, as you can see from my options up there. Either I am in serious trouble and need assistance right NOW or I have to bide my time until…

First Cover of My Book “FALLOUT”

The line at the top of the cover said, “Their State Prison Psychologist was a Survivor,”  and the dream in the middle of the cover read: “My mother and all the children have disappeared and I have not seen them for days….My father, who is in bed,  begins tearing photos out of the family album. I fear he has done something to them and might to me.”  I didn’t use it because I couldn’t trace all the images to give credit to.

The Sink Hole Sunk This Poet

What’s wrong with wearing rose-colored glasses?

Face it–it’s hard today to walk without stepping in it.

And if you slip and fall–oh my! If only our inner

compass could be depended upon, if our

creative urges could steer us through the dark,

find the light.

Should we throw down our tinted lenses and fight

the tarantulas?  The booby-trapped

life jackets? Don’t give in to despair, they say, and

with luck my sword will slice thin air and not be

thrust back at me.  The Drama Queen sits

beside her sister in tinted glasses, waiting for the

other shoe to fall. Oh my.
