Cape

Posted On April 11th, 2021

Who gave me this thing in the first place
That is the question of the hour
Who tricked me into believing that if I put this thing on
It would give me all this so called “magic” and power

C.A.P.E.rsona Chats: Episode 1, April 13th, 2021 6:30 PM

Posted On March 29th, 2021

If you feel both empowered and weary from carrying out your everyday superhero responsibilities, then I invite you to join me for the very first episode of C.A.P.E.rsona Chats. In this episode I’ll talk about why it’s perfectly ok to be proud that you have a cape to wear in the first place and at the same time know that sometimes you need to TAKE THAT CAPE OFF – especially when it begins to drain you of the very power it was supposed to create. That’s right, there’s a time and place for all personas. And the cape persona is no different. During this first chat, I’ll also talk about the personal and professional circumstances that led to the creation of my organization, Pamper. Purpose. Service., LLC. And of course we’ll chat about my debut novella, “A Table for One.” I know you’re probably thinking ‘that’s a whole lot to cover in twenty minutes’ haha. But I got a funny feeling that my host Julian and I will make the time go by really fast! See you soon!

Already Full

Posted On March 1st, 2021

I have always found myself in relationships that were unequally yoked. Mainly emotionally, sometimes financially, and a time or two even spiritually. And I always stayed in those relationships until the wheels fell off. I managed to start every day as if I had not already figured out that I would not get what I needed from that particular ‘union.’ And I stayed because the thought of being without the other person frightened me more than the reality that I was already without that other person. I stayed because I valued the idea of “togetherness”, more than I did the possibility of “wholeness” centered completely and fully…on me.

A Table for One

Posted On February 10th, 2021

No, I’m not waiting for anyone
My entire party is already here
Yes, this well put together woman before you
Will dine alone tonight, without worry or fear

I defy the rule that says we must sit across from someone
Before we can declare ourselves out on a proper date
When in fact, I know of no better company than what I give to myself
And my own love put this smile on my face

I compete with no one when it comes time to brighten a room
And I keep my confidence at a level beyond anyone’s reach
Lest some fool believes he can tear down what he didn’t build
Or needs to learn a lesson I stay ready to teach

You see it is I, that treats me best
Who put in the time and got her self work done
So I have no energy left to make anyone else understand
Why I sit so peacefully at A Table for One
