A PO’d Woman’s Manifesto

Becoming Worldly

Feeling on my game. It is my life, my sidewalk, my internet, my dreams, my world. I don’t give a damn. I’m taking it back. This is a wilderness hike. Anybody bringing me garbage can pack it back out along with their tent.

I am mad that there is an abusive man y’all elected as president. I’m mad that they are gonna be drilling in our wilderness and already trying to tell teen undocumented immigrants what they can do with their bodies like they own them.

I’m done with all the “fake news” people who wouldn’t know fake news if it was a poisonous snake that had already bit them (and it did).

I’m done with the people who are so against abusive behavior unless it’s their friend and then in that case could you just calm down recognize that there are two sides to every story.

I am done…

The One Thing Christians Should Stop Saying

Especially when “I’m blessed” is used to make one feel superior, as if those in poverty and having misfortune have somehow not ‘served God’ well enough to be blessed.

The Accidental Missionary

Slide1

I was on the phone with a good friend the other day.  After covering important topics, like disparaging each other’s mothers and retelling semi-factual tales from our college days, our conversation turned to the mundane.

“So, how’s work going?” he asked.

For those of you who don’t know, I make money by teaching leadership skills and helping people learn to get along in corporate America.  My wife says it’s all a clever disguise so I can get up in front of large groups and tell stories.

I plead the fifth.

I answered my buddy’s question with,

“Definitely feeling blessed.  Last year was the best year yet for my business.  And it looks like this year will be just as busy.”

The words rolled off my tongue without a second thought.  Like reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or placing my usual lunch order at McDonald’s.

But it was a lie.

Spotlight on Alice Gardner Bates

intentional acts of kindness

For my seventh spotlight piece, trying to highlight others that inspire, I would like to share the artist, Alice Gardner Bates.

Alice

I met Alice about a year ago at a barbecue she hosted, even though she’s a vegetarian.  She openly shares so much: food, cocktails, her personal story, her art, her heart, and her mind.  And she rescues cats, which four currently reside at home with her.  I am inspired that a picture can paint many words (and I really do love words), but art that reminds us to look inward and outward and ask questions is invaluable.   Art that acknowledges the raw, the honest is beautiful.

May she inspire you to engage with art and artists more often.

L: When and how did you start painting?

A: I started trying to draw Sailor Moon fan art when I was twelve. When I was fourteen I bought my first anatomy…
