The Diet Diaries

Diet Day 0.  It's the Sunday before my personal D-Day, the Monday on which I have vowed to begin a Diet.  I had not made this a New Year's resolution despite the fact that I have noted some new fat cells ganging up around my middle.  Cut yourself some slack, I told myself.  Body positivity

Fake Views

Mirror, mirror in the store You made me look like a size four But in my home what did I see? A plus-size looking back at me! Please forgive my corny rhyme, but I'm pretty sure this is the question that the Wicked Queen would be posing to her magic mirror if she and Snow

The Golf Lesson Redux

     Spring break in Connecticut means a visit from the grandkids to South Florida.  Just completed a wonderful week of swimming, shopping, general chaos, and taste-testing every ice cream parlor in Palm Beach County.  No time for a new essay, so I’m reposting.  With my repaired left shoulder ready and able to do my

Wet Dreams

I have always believed myself to be very open-minded when it comes to sexual preferences.  I totally support all heteros, as well as the LGBTQ community, and hope that the "Questionables" figure it out one day very soon.  Any union between or among consenting adults is okay with me.  But after watching the movie “The
