Toddler Wearing By Caroline Jane Cole April 4, 2012 The author would like to dedicate this article to Jean Liedloff, who passed away in March 2011. "Her work profoundly affected the way I parent, and continues to teach me new ways of seeing each time I re-read her work." Dancing-in-arms
If you're new here, you may want to join us on Facebook or Google + . Thanks for visiting! Well well well, this week’s “how to” is a little early in the week (no how to on Friday) AND my kids helped me make it – egg carton blossom fairy lights! I love love love Spring – in particular blossoms – so thought a blossom egg carton craft would be perfect! I thought that they looked so pretty even those amongst us without children may enjoy having a go at them, hence a “how to” and not “kids craft”.. They are now proudly strung up in the entrance to our “family/ kitchen area”, so pretty much all our visitors see them, when they first come in!
"They welcomed the message very eagerly and examined the scriptures every day to see whether these things were so" --Acts 17:11 As we make our way toward the 2012 elections, many feel tossed to and fro by often contradicting claims about what the Bible says on this or that political issue. Most people just don't know the Bible well enough to say whether these claims are right, wrong, correct, incorrect or a matter of interpretation. On top of that, political Bible talkers on the campaign trail rarely cite chapter and verse, making it tough for us to check them out for ourselves. The Bible is a powerful weapon that has been wielded for good and for ill throughout American history.
post written by: Marc Email As Jack London once said, “The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.” Far too often we travel through life on autopilot, going through the motions, accepting what is, and having every day pass like the one before it. Everything seems relatively normal and comfortable, except that constant twitch in the back of your mind that’s saying, “It’s time to make some changes.”
Most of us are familiar with a 28-day menstrual cycle, which, divided in half, comprises the follicular phase – that’s when the dominant follicle, or egg, is growing and preparing for ovulation – and the luteal phase – when the endometrium, or lining of the uterus, is preparing for possible conception and implantation. If implantation doesn’t occur and signal pregnancy to the corpus luteum, which is the "yellow body" left behind by the ovulated egg, then it eventually degrades, hormone levels decline, and menstruation occurs. Then the whole process starts up again.
Any pregnant woman has heard about it. The rice paddy birth. It usually goes something like this: "We make such a big deal about having babies in this country.
I began blogging in 2008 , the year I moved away from Myspace and the small little box of blogging poetry I had been doing amongst a great group of people, to Blogger, an expansive and noisy terrain filled with the movement of people excited about what they are doing, when they hardly know how to define it. I started blogging with the exact same intent that I had pushed my poetry into Myspace- toconnect through my writing in a ( often ) brutally honest way, and to make money through writing. I've wanted to be a writer since I call remember wanting to do anything.
“We don’t know what’s wrong…” The doctors were at a loss for words. My mother had been comatose for more than two weeks and would likely die without experimental surgery. She had a blood infection and her physicians needed permission to amputate the leg that seemed to be the source of the toxins which were dominating her circulatory system. My father cried. At the age of twenty-one, I had never seen him so emotional.
Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years.

When I was a very young woman, I was enthralled by two promises, neither of which involved me. I heard the first at the wedding of a friend. She and her husband-to-be had written their own vows and they read them to each other at the ceremony. The groom led with this indelible sentence: If you wake in the darkness of your soul, I promise to hold you until light. I read the second in a personal ad at the back of a gay men’s s/m magazine: I’ll have you praying for dawn.
