sunday’s musing…

when you wake up to this… went outside, took some deep breaths,
feeling the fresh, cool air fill my lungs.
the smell of woodstoves in the air and
finding peace and beauty here in our winter wonderland.

thursday’s musing…

Awake at 3:00 am.
Laid in bed a while and eventually fell asleep only to wake at 5:00.
Decided to make coffee and bring it back to bed.
Listened to The Daily podcast whilst the dark became light and
the sun shone on this beautiful, frosty, November morning.

thursday’s musing…

“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last – are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”

~Gillian Anderson~

Yes.. Me too

They say 1 in 4 women have had this happen, although I would have to say that based on talking to other women over the years, it is all women that have been sexually harassed and or assaulted. This includes cat calling, told we need to smile, being called a bitch when we don’t. Walking to the bathroom in a crowded bar with our arms folded up to cover our breasts so no one cops a feel. This list goes on and on.. unfortunately. 

As well as teaching our daughters this is unacceptable we need to teach our sons that it is unacceptable. This all comes down to Respect. We need to respect one another and that includes standing up for others who can’t. If you witness something like this, speak up. I know I do.. do you?
