The Importance of this Election

I won’t be silent. I won’t sit still. I won’t cross my legs and tuck my hem and sit up straight. I won’t go quietly into the good night. I will be heard. I will be seen. I will be respected. I will speak for the muted and walk for the wounded. I will pave […]

Prince Piece

He blew my mind. Over and over and over again he just blew my mind. I waited out all night to get third row center tickets – two nights in a row for the Purple Rain Tour. He looked right at me – I am certain he did – exchanging energy and getting lost in […]

Because Love

I have a hard time understanding why I am such a complicated mess. Why the quiet times are my favorite times and the world overwhelms me again and again and again. How can I feel so much so deeply and ponder things so intently when they really don’t have anything to do with my day […]

How Facebook Is Destroying Civilization

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, there was no such thing as Facebook. Times were simpler and stories more true. Keeping up with the Jones’ was a simple contest regarding who had the best lawn or the newest car on the block. Laundry was hung privately in our own backyards […]

What You See Is What You Get…Sometimes

We think we know someone.  We hear their words and watch them interact with others and we think we know them.  Or really – the truth is – and more importantly to me – you think they know you.  You are true – constant, honest, open and kind.  You don’t keep secrets or play games […]

Not only believe – but feel and decide and live and choke […]

The perspective from our Senior Editor and word wrangler, Kathy Guzman. Another year is about to slip out the front door. No long kiss good night – no sweet good byes – just letting go of the old and ringing in the new – just like that. Looking back – just for a moment – […]

Double Edged Sword

Guz Views – The perspective from our Senior Editor and word wrangler, Kathy Guzman. It doesn’t really matter where you’re standing. Matters even less where you’ve been. The only thing that makes a difference in this world is where you might be going and how you plan on getting there. Doesn’t matter who you know […]

Football Parties and Other Apprehensions About Sports

I’ve never watched football.  Well, that’s not true, actually.  I did watch football a couple of times in my youth incidentally while my Father would watch the Denver Broncos on the weekends.  I seem to remember something about getting a player to one side of the field to do a little happy dance.  And something […]

Never Say Never Again

Hopefully there comes a time in everyone’s life when we decide we simply are not going to settle for less than all we truly deserve.  We will be loved as we love and be seen as we see.  We will look in the mirror and with directed certainty tell ourselves that we are better than […]
