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 […]

NAKED DANCING

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” ― Anne Lamott Well, I’m going to jump right into it, and do a little naked dancing this morning. What?!! You say? We don’t know each other that well, yet? You are correct, but I’m in the […]
