Hear! Hear! Time to Pay Attention.

When I was much younger I liked to leave the details up to the Other Guy. Things like buying a car, buying a house or getting married. Part of it was sort of an attitude towards being a female and the time I grew up. A guy was expected to sweat the details. No need […]

Right Here. Right Now.

Good Morning.  I have one thing to tell you today; You will never have any kind of lasting happiness unless you make living in the present moment your regular jam.  That is just the truth. If you aren’t looking at what is right in front of you right now, you’re missing out on the jewels […]

When Life Serves You Cottonballs

I don’t eat elephants.  But when I do…I eat them one bite at a time. I had a dream when I was a kid that there were huge balls of cotton rolling through our woods towards our house. I knew they were evil cotton balls, so I grabbed my little sister’s hand and ran to […]

Happy Birthday, Cheeky Yum!

  Good morning, Blogee’s!  I am very happy to say, CheekyYum.com is now a year old.  I usually only have that kind of commitment to my bad habits. The good stuff I tend to skip here and there.  Like Meditation.  Something that I can do for free that will re-wire my brain and make my life […]

Perception Becomes Reality

This is a mini blog today.  A baby bloggy.  I had quite a profound little experience the other day, and I’d like to share it.  In the Tapping blog a few blogs back (say that five times fast), I was repeating the mantra, “Because I deeply love and respect myself.”  That’s a lot for many […]

Armpit Love – A Bonus Post for my Cancer Brothers and Sisters, Survivors and Thrivers

Good Morning, my Friends! I wanted to re-tool this post I published some time ago.  I remade another batch of this homemade deodorant and just find it to be so fantastic I had to tell you about it again.  This recipe is important for a few reasons; Firstly, your lovely armpits are home to many […]

The Panic Room

Good Morning, my Friends. I’m at work on a website, Intuitive Self Defense. I had that site up and running at one point, but it now means more to me than simply using intuition to protect ourselves in a dangerous situation. There’s also Emotional Self Defense. Radical Self Defense. The whole tamale – inside and […]

I Heard it on the Taconic

My doctor brushes a gloved fingertip across my naked stomach, and frowns. “That needs to come off,” he says. I glance down and see nothing but skin. I don’t like him, this doctor.  I like the scalpel that has suddenly appeared in his hand even less. He leans on my chest to hold me still, […]

Home is Where the Cat is

Having Metastatic Cancer tends to keep me thinking about how things are going to play out, and feeling a little desperate about not spending TIME properly. That can be exhausting. I’m not having symptoms yet, and it may sound counterintuitive, but that puts pressure on. Tick Tock. I should be living closer to my daughter, […]

Armpit Love

Armpits. My daughter used to call them armpots when she was a wee lass. I have mixed feelings about mine. I have a tumor in my right armpit, so where I once felt pretty carefree about my armpits as long as they were clean smelling and freshly shaven, I now know they harbor many lymph […]
