Expanding Food and Recipes

A funny thing happened when I was cleaning the house today: I had to make more laundry soap to do a load of towels. 

That situation prompted me to add the series: The Healthy Home Project to the Food and Recipes section of Nonfiction

People, especially Environmental Illness patients, are looking for natural, healthy, and nontoxic solutions to home care. From laundry soap, rinse agents, and house cleaners, I hope to bring to my readers what I personally have created and use in my own life. 


I hope you enjoy the health.

Have a great and wonderful day! 



Phantom Rain

Rain was on the radar but none fell on my property. 

Rain will begin in 14 minutes to a break in the rain will happen in 44 minutes. I look outside: nothing. I hear the monsoon storm's wind and thunder. I look again... Well, I guess there is no rain for my poor landscaping yet another day. 

Where is my rain? My plants cry for moisture.

Do I keep on waiting on this phantom rain?

Have a great and wonderful day.

Centrist : The Middle Child of Politics

Well, since I am writing historical and political research essays, I should probably explain my philosophy...

Centrist
The Middle Child of Politics

Before we get into the ins and out of history, politics, and society, we will take a look at the political views of the writer and lecturer.

What is a Centrist? What does that mean for people's rights?


What is your political leanings?

(This essay straddles two worlds; Hstorical Context and Social Constructs.) 




War on Women is Now a Topic for Discussion

I have been at it again! 

With current attitudes and recent commentary about women's rights, health, and safety, I am now working on a research essay called: War on Women. I take a look at the different arguments and angles about women's rights in our society. 

The war on women has been a religious and societal attack for over 100 years. Probably closer to 4 to 5 thousand years have women had to submit to patriarchal misinformation and disinformation about what is and is not "feminine." 

When feminism brought women's issues to the forefront of cultural discussion, politics hijacked the message. Wouldn't you like to get back to what being a woman is really about? 


See more about my published and upcoming critical essays in the Nonfiction section. For more about topics like War on Women, please see our Social Constructs page.
