BLOG: Be the Light

In 2016, Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly approved State Questions 780 and 781. The new laws reduced some non-violent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. This effected drug possession and low level theft more than other, more violent criminal charges. State leaders continue to struggle with balancing the concern for public safety with the need for relief from prison overcrowding and budget constraints. Only time will tell how the...

Jangle and Whirr: Coming to terms with all the ways you feel

Trying to master your emotions in times like these can sometimes feel like riding a bucking bronco or finding your balance on a floating log. Exhausting. At least that’s how I felt for weeks. Not so much anymore. After weeks of trying to pinpoint exactly how I felt so I could name it, deal with it, and quit the up and down and back and forth, I finally realized I didn’t have to. We humans are capable of feeling more than one thing at...

DHD: Mother’s Day Edition

Greetings! Four years ago, I did a DHD Mother’s Day edition. This one is special to me because of how fascinated I am of many well-known and admirable mothers. I hope it’s OK that I “rehash” this DHD for this year’s Mother’s Day. Also, there is an addendum to the sixth point on my list.

Blog: Rediscovering the light bulb

My youngest son River has all the toys of his two older brothers at his disposal. He also has all the toys that were gifts from me and others. Yet of all the toys he has, nothing brings him joy like looking at a light bulb. He has recently discovered light switches, and you would think it was the most amazing thing in the world. I am now ordered by this tiny, diaper-wearing human—who can’t speak—to stand and hold him near the...

Blog: Two Cups of Tea are Better

I grew up hating tea! The only kind that was ever around was Lipton, and nothing about it appealed to me. Even when it was infused with an obscene amount of sugar I thought it tasted terrible. As a young adult I began to hear about all of the health benefits of green tea and was intrigued. I wanted the benefits but wasn’t sure how I was going to get past the disgusting taste. After thinking about it long enough, I decided to take...
