  • "They," "Them," and Me by Dorien Grey 3/5/2015 3:47:55 AM
    I've spent an inordinate amount of time, over the course of my life, pondering the riddle of how I can be a part of humanity and yet so often feel totally apart from it. I've come to the conclusion that I view my relation to other people...and specif... more

  • The Fine Line by Dorien Grey 3/2/2015 4:10:33 AM
    Odd how one picks up small bits and pieces of poetry, songs, sayings, etc. from God knows where and carries them throughout life. One of my favorites, probably from my grade school days when I was becoming aware of profundities (and yes, "pr... more

  • "This, too...." by Dorien Grey 2/26/2015 3:55:50 AM
    One of the wonders of being human is that while we, among all living creatures on earth, are aware of the concepts of future and past, stretching out endlessly before and behind us, we must walk between the two on the infinitely thin tightrope of "no... more

  • Idiots by Dorien Grey 2/23/2015 4:03:53 AM
    We are an increasingly dumbed-down culture, and it is no mistake.... more

  • Weather or Not by Dorien Grey 2/19/2015 4:42:35 AM
    Remember that old kids' rhyme, "Whether it's cold or whether it's hot, we will have weather, whether or not"? It was one of my first encounters with wordplay, and I've always remembered it. I love weather's unpredictability and delight in th... more

  • Learning to be your own Valentine by Tascha Lee Dresser 2/12/2015 5:04:22 AM
    In light of the new situation in my life and upcoming Valentines Day I thought it was time for a new blog on love and relationships. These blogs serve as an outlet for me sometimes and a way to process my thoughts and feelings. I have so much ... more

  • Grand Delusions by Dorien Grey 2/9/2015 4:04:18 AM
    Being human comes with enough problems—many of our own making—without allowing hubris to extend the range of those problems to include assumed/implied responsibility for things over which we have absolutely not the remotest influence or control. This... more

  • Waste Not, Want Not by Dorien Grey 2/5/2015 3:41:28 AM

  • "Pretty" by Dorien Grey 1/29/2015 3:47:43 AM
    I know, I know…our attraction to physically pretty people is somehow encoded in our DNA as an imperative. Survival of the fittest and all that. But our humanity should raise us above our genes, and it far too seldom does. One of the least fo... more

  • Observing by Dorien Grey 1/26/2015 3:43:28 AM
    We're all so busy living our lives that we seldom take the time to step back and really look at things. Not the big stuff upon which our existence depends, but on those millions and millions of trivialities that surround us every minute and yet go i... more

  • Crazy mixed up world by Tascha Lee Dresser 1/25/2015 7:23:37 AM
    Has there ever been a time you felt you just did not fit in? Did you ever feel like to try to give into someone's expectations of you would be betraying yourself? If so, I know exactly what it is like. The world we live in is chaotic and constantly ... more

  • Lip Service by Dorien Grey 1/22/2015 3:59:22 AM
    We are a lip-service people. Both as individuals and as a society, we solemnly proclaim belief in and adherence to one thing while doing the exact opposite. There is, far too often, only the most flimsy connection between our words and our actions. G... more

  • Seriously? by Dorien Grey 1/19/2015 3:36:55 AM
    Margaret Hamilton, as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz hit it on the head: “What a world! What a world!” I have spent more than 3/4 of a century bumbling through life avoiding reality whenever possible, thinking I was unique ... more

    Well, It has been some time since I wrote a new blog here. So to begin the new year I am going to write this one on relationships and the difference between male and female attitudes towards them. Please bare with me. It has been told to m... more

  • You, Me, and Snowflakes by Dorien Grey 1/15/2015 4:05:49 AM
    Glancing out the window during our most recent light snowfall, I got to thinking about snowflakes and our metaphysical resemblance to them. (Nice segue, Dorien!) Each of us, be we human or snowflake, is unique, though when viewed in large nu... more

  • Boogeyman by Dorien Grey 1/12/2015 3:28:40 AM
    There is a boogeyman who lives beneath my bed, and in my closet, and who stalks me every hour of every day, no matter where I go. I never see him, of course...boogeymen never show themselves...but I know he is there, and he knows I know. He saturates... more

  • "You're Nothing!" by Dorien Grey 1/8/2015 4:06:57 AM

    Who Do You Think You Are – A Writer??? Yes. Yes, I do. As a writer, I can tell you that it truly takes a very long time to believe it enough to actually say these words, “I am a writer.” They are definitely not easy words to say. As writers, ... more
