I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Good Night, Friend-Bea Arthur, You Will be Missed!

The great comedian and feminist Bea Arthur died April 25 and she will be greatly missed. Her sharp wit made one laugh hard and think critically about women's issues at the same time. She was a success on television for very many obvious reasons, moving from hit to hit-first appearing on All In the Family, then Maude, and then Golden Girls. She was also in many musicals, movies, and specials. I believe she was a gift to the entertainment industry and to all of us. Even though I do adore the video of her reading Pamela Anderson's book at Anderson's Comedy Central's "Roasting," I decided to post her singing to her "friends" in the Star War's Christmas Special. Good night, my friend and keep God laughing and thinking.
