December Girls

December girls stand arrow-straight, wear

winter white, carmine and black, cool

colors for red-hot thinkers, the doers

in the darkest part of the year’s final

gasp. December girls love with fierce

ambition and deep commitment, spend

themselves on soul causes. They draw

Sagittarian bows, release the fletched

and sacred darts toward future fate

not yet revealed, set their sights

on a higher plane and soar, unsullied

into the coming year.


May you join this December girl in welcoming a new year, new ventures, and new reasons to sally forth like female Quijotes, to leave our mark, however small, upon the larger canvas.

Happy Holidays!

Ukraine means 'country.' Whatever happened to 'make love, not war'? Where do we go when madness rules the earth? And I think about the mothers... There comes a time in every woman's journey when she faces those two converging paths [...]

Every year as March turns into April, I think about cleaning, and, sure, the house comes to mind. The dusting, scouring, airing, washing, and polishing remain secondary concerns to the tilling of the garden beds, the sowing of early crops [...]
