Photo by Sharefaith on Pexels.com Wow. I never ever thought I'd see the day this happened. Take a read of Matt Taibbi's article. The irony that these people are using a publicly funded platform to say this kind of crap and advocate for others to be silenced. The gall of it. This is going to … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – The great experiment
Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com I've been on all sides of this perspective. I've been an Adjunct Professor egghead myself. I've worked for people in the private sector and so has my husband, and we've run several small businesses. And as we all know, times have changed. As a consequence, I have lost my interest … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Eggheads
Photo by George Becker on Pexels.com Jung was not just a believer in dreams, he was the person who first defined and explored synchronicity. When I talk about erasing yesterday, I do not mean it in the sense that we must reject all tradition or evolved culture. Quite the opposite. I have had a horrible … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Synchronicity and Dream Candles – erasing yesterday
Connect the dots. First of all, let me say AGAIN I am not an anti-vaxxer. If the death rate had been much higher, I would have been on board with a vaccine. Like one against polio. But think this through, folks. THINK ABOUT THIS. The only people not getting sick and not passing on this … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Thanks you vaxxers
I love Phil’s piece here. Really made me feel like life was normal for a few minutes!
I have been reading the revered “Farmers Almanac” for the past 6 months, and it’s surprising how accurate and sometimes, inaccurate it can be.
The Almanac and I go back a long way. My Grandparents introduced me to the book when I was six years old and spent summers on their Texas farm trying to convert myself from a city slicker to a country boy. They were firm believers in the power of its predictions, although they were let down more than a few times.
This fine morning, as I drink a cup of java and read the pages, it tells me the summer in this part of Texas is forecast to be cooler and wetter than average. I know it to be BS the moment I read it. No summer in Texas is cooler and wetter. Every day for us is misery and suffering topped off with biting and…

Well, I'll still stick to my goal for the day (well no, I had this one written, but I now sliced my finger on a mandolin I wasn't even using and the bandage is too big to write much), but the last week has been so upsetting because it's clear there is an absolute authoritarian/fascist … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Open Debate
Women friends. I've known for some time women are a lot smarter if sometimes not logical or analytical enough at times--they are wiser over-all. Well, I had planned yesterday to look up a blogger or website a friend of mine recommended (thanks Susan), but of course, yet again, my father took a turn and we … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Today – I’m following my friends’ advice
Impasse. Here is the problem. My entire academic/literary community in Michigan has now cancelled and shunned me. I didn't try to argue any specific policy ever--just that we should have universities with free exchange of ideas. They knew from my memoir I was a libertarian type and while not necessarily a Trump fan, I was … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Cancel Culture
I knew from the time I was in junior high if not before that I would be a writer. I can remember sitting at my little antique desk in my bedroom and knowing I had been "called" to do that. It's been a very strange journey as writer. Early on, a high school teacher read … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – How my writing (and reading) and identity as a writer (and teacher) has been transformed
Quick note. I've been MIA because my husband had a retinal tear and then a blood clot in his heart after the procedure, and once we got him stented up and geared away, we went on a ten day vacation to the Upper Peninsula (instead of Maine because of all of the above). Then after … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Coronary Calcium Score
