Boundaries blurred
Whispers heard
Be mindful of your spoken word
Let not intention be recanted
From seeds once planted
Requests be granted
Equals only be enticed
Review the guest list once or twice
Then light the candles
And fire up the blender
‘Tis no better night for wishes rendered!

Watch yourself, sister.
Should you dismiss that vaguely familiar shitty feeling once again, your role in this recurring drama is destined to continue indefinitely.
Hold still for a moment.
Take an objective view of the scenario that you have found yourself drawn into.

I wonder if I might pose the question, “What is love?” without prompting a slight gag reflex in either of us?
A smirk?  A roll of the eyes?
C’mon, Jill.

Last night I talked on the phone with my cousin Candace for four hours and twenty minutes.
“What do you talk about?” Durwood wants to know.
This can never be explained to a man.  (Particularly one who is a lifetime member of the Man-Talker Association.)  Durwood’s phone conversations are kept to a brief greeting, statements containing five [...]
