A beautiful poem written by one of my blogger friends. I wish more and more parents would spend time with their kids instead of thumping a fistful of expectations infront of them. Here you go with the blog: A girl,belonging to my husband’s extended family committed suicide a few days ago apparently for reasons unknown to … Continue reading I am the murderer of my child !!!
Writing from your dark side can make a difference in the world
I once wrote a post called Get Mad: Marketing from Your Dark Side. I’ve mentioned it before briefly in the context of Terry Pratchett’s passing, but I’d like to come back to it again because I recently read two blog posts that touched on how artists use their personal fears, conflicts, and even tragedies to infuse their art with passion that resonates far beyond their own experience.
In my original post about marketing, I talked about how a strong brand is defined as much by what it stands against as what it stands for:
Without an opposing force, a hero is just a person who is going through the motions.
Without an opposing force, there is no fire in the hero’s soul. There is no sense of greater purpose, no fierce commitment, no do-or-die mission.
Without an opposing force, we never get to see what the hero can…

A very different style of blogging. Must read this one.

They just look like random dots to me, yes, sometimes I see threads connecting them if I stare long and hard enough and force myself to see those lines (because they are supposed to be there), but the designs they make don’t look like anything other than a connect the dots puzzle which creates a weird shape.
Even though I’m dense when it comes to constellations, I’m fairly…

I am the 1 of 32 Americans who are incarcerated every year.
My most quoted line was said completely off the cuff. Some other editors at Ms. magazine were throwing me an omelet party at some restaurant in the neighborhood for my 40th birthday. And a reporter said to me, kindly, “Oh, you don’t look 40.” And I said, just off the top of my head, “This is what 40 looks like — we’ve been lying for so long, who would know?”

Only July 18th, 2015, I walked out the California Institute for Women, in Chino Hills, after completing 438 days of incarceration in the care of the State.
It was raining, and my mom and I drove immediately away from the gates and towards tacos. I changed in the bathroom of the cozy taquería, removing my prison-casual wear with the business attire my family had prepared for me. It is what I am accustomed to wearing…

You need a Psychiatrist sometimes. Here’s Why.
You don’t need a storm shelter,
only a warm towel to dry your hair with.
I know that you aren’t sure why you feel depressed. You try and hide it because you can’t find its source. You fear judgment from others. The ones you know and those you cherish. They won’t understand what you are going through because you don’t either.
