Poem: He Sings Me Into Being

You want to know about my God? He can’t be known. He can’t be seen, Yet I am his music. His song lets my insides tremble.

My soft belly shakes and my breasts shiver in delight. My body flows and is moved by his rhythm. 

The world is dancing, drifting, as my eyes see foreign lands, realms of sound and touch, of speed and light. They are offered to me. I am its only queen. Continue reading “Poem: He Sings Me Into Being”

Having Trouble with Family? 3 Family Myths Busted!

 

Myth #1: Family comes first. Family is Everything.

Have you heard of the term Blood runs thicker than water? It means that, in general, family counts more than friends. It’s more important than anyone else. Which I find is an odd way to define affection, affinity and love. Who made that rule?

Love is love, and whoever you feel connected to, whomever you love is part of your family. There shouldn’t be a scale of who deserves our love more than others. Or who should love us the most? Yet, we do have that scale.
