Long ago (in a galaxy far, far away) I lived in a part of Norwalk, Connecticut called Rowayton. I was a member of a really lovely church there that celebrated Maundy Thursday. To this day it is the only church I've ever attended that had a service on the Thursday evening before Easter. It was … Continue reading Maundy Thursday
Ugh. For the last full year it's just been an uphill battle with health issues. I thought I had a UTI, and after suffering for a good long while trying to get rid of it the regular old fashioned ways it turned out to be diabetes. So my whole everything got turned upside down and … Continue reading I Got WHAT Now?
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8902980/ Sometimes it's tough to be a horror fan. We cruise the streaming services for old favorites we can safely watch (Conjuring, Exorcist 1 or 3, Salem's Lot, Carrie, Audrey Rose just to name a few) and we look for those hidden gems we haven't seen before. Sometimes we get lucky and stumble upon something … Continue reading Widow’s Point
Anyone out there disagree with me when I say 2020 stinks on ice? Back in February I got sick. Weird symptoms. Seemed like a really bad UTI at times. Or something. My kidneys kind of hurt. I was tired and had some wicked brain fog. I lost my appetite. I was dying of thirst all … Continue reading I Got the Rona
When I was in college (1986 I was invited not to return after the first year) I had a boyfriend from the Bronx. He had long hair and an earring. He wore a black leather jacket and aviator sunglasses. To a girl from the white-bread bland Connecticut suburbs he was about as bad-ass as it … Continue reading Yama-hahah
There are some people who would do away with the Old Testament, dismissing it as irrelevant or only for the Jews. While there certainly are things in there that were just for the Jews, or just for people in general at the time, or in the specific geographical locations at the time, there is so … Continue reading Golden Calf 2.0
In 1990 I moved to the village of Rowayton, Connecticut. It's a wealthy little section of Norwalk, but a whole different world from the rest of the town. I'd never been to church before, aside from a single visit to a Methodist church when I was a kid, and maybe a family wedding or two. … Continue reading Blessing of the Animals
James 5:14 states, "Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord." That seems like a pretty straight forward instruction, right? The chapter goes on to say, "And the prayer of faith will save the … Continue reading Anointing
Recently I purchased a gun. I got a .357 Ruger and I love it. Seriously. I love that gun. It's for home defense, and it's for fun. My husband and I have started going to target ranges on Sunday afternoons and shooting and I am really enjoying it. I enjoy the time we spend together … Continue reading Pew-Pew!!!
Do you remember the movie Throw Momma from the Train? Billy Crystal plays a writer, who also teaches a writing class. His catchphrase was, "A writer writes - always!" That became one of my favorite lines, ever. And it's TRUE! Trust me, if I'm watching TV, or driving somewhere, or even having a conversation with … Continue reading So Creepy!!!
