You scrimped and saved and looked at sale inserts out of the paper. Stood in long lines the day after Thanksgiving. Punched some guy in the nose who was trying to grab the last must have item for toddlers on the shelf. Wrapped it up nice with bows and ribbons. You waited with pained anticipation for weeks until finally Christmas morning came. Your little one ripped through the paper like they were a badger chasing a rabbit down a hole until finally they spent the morning playing with the box the item came in. Some things never change...

Worldwide, some people would admit that the relationship between men and women is top-heavy and even biased. Others wonder if gender balance is not a western invention and culture. I believe hindering women’s rights is individual’s commitment not to consider women as human beings. This situation has been existent in the world for ages, it is not particular to a given community.
There exist too many debates on gender balance throughout the world. This is often referred to as gender equality. We note today that in some countries consensus exists that equalities of opportunities, such... Read More
I have two kids.
One is almost an adult, the other.... well... still have a way to go!
In the 18 years that I have been a parent I have learned a few things along the way. Being the youngest child, raised in a remote area, I did not have much effective child rearing knowledge when I started out. I had a lot of tricks that could not be used, like corporal punishment, and I had not been exposed to much current child rearing practices,so it was a long and tedious learning process. I made a lot of mistakes along the way. A LOT, way, WAY too many for my conscience, but it's too... Read More

It is an empowering and overwhelming sensation to watch your own life, being completely disconnected, where you’re watching yourself as a third-person character in a movie, rather than a first person in your own skin. Under the guise of a movie, there are twists and turns in the plot, heroes and villains, alternate endings, retakes, and other events of production that had all left me feeling canned, or on the cutting room floor.
My childhood is made up of a series of flashbacks; happy times in slow motion, peppered with darker voice-overs that create just enough irony to foreshadow the... Read More
Shakespeare had seven stages of life, but I have settled for six acts on one stage...
The First Act – Innocence: You are running free, a child, with images from past lives and guardian angels vivid in your mind; the imagination free, the strong spirit of enquiry to take those earlier experiences to their next stages of evolution, the constant asking of “why not?” and the fear of being sanctioned by elders who keep admonishing you to “behave.”
The Second Act – Rebellion: Past lives forgotten, with this life becoming more important: the pleasures of adulthood, awakened sexuality,... Read More
It's New Year's Eve so I thought I'd share what I think my cats' resolutions will be for 2012!
Bilbo says: Cuddles with Mummy! Nothing is more important than that. I leave my food, toys, bed, warm spots when Mummy comes into the room. Sometimes I chew her hair but she usually stops me because I like to eat it. So maybe my resolution will be to find a way to groom Mummy more. But then, I might lose my cuddle time! I'll stick with the cuddles!
Frodo says: Meow! MEOW! I think they can hear me next door now and possibly even in the next street. Daddy calls me the Opera Singer.... Read More
