Sparkly, Sprinkly Things

I’ve always liked things that sparkle.  Somewhere in the recesses of what’s left of my mind, there’s a voice saying that, “Boys (men) don’t like sparkly things…”  That probably springs from homophobic prejudice(s) in the West.  Or, it could harken … Continue reading

Offering Encouragement

One of the coolest things about staying with my daughter and granddaughter is the opportunity to get to help, a bit, with Kaia’s academics.  Since she is only in kindergarten, I didn’t expect that to be a possibility.  But kindergarten … Continue reading
