THE WONDER WOMAN I WAS HOPING FOR

Don’t get me wrong—I LOVED the Wonder Woman movie.  I thought Gal Godot did a smashing job as Diana.  I loved the idea of the Amazons being ancient protectresses of the planet.

KISS ME, I’M IRISH (maybe)

Well, my given first name — Deirdre — definitely is.   In my family there is some dispute as to whether my great-grandfather was a Scot–or an Irish bounder pretending to be a Scot to get out of a wee bit of trouble.  I fancy the second possibility, as my name in Gaelic means “The […]

This distresses me greatly, since learning how your natural energy […]

Monday Message: Your Unique and Authentic Life
