Adventures and Musings of an Arch Druidess

I’ve been thinking a lot about the shootings because women didn’t fulfil the shooter’s fantasy and the comments some men have made that “Not all men are like that” and I finally have to say something.

If you have ever gone out with your buddies and one of them commented on a woman for “not putting out” or about her body, and you didn’t call them on it. You are part of the problem.

If you have ever heard a man catcall at a woman and didn’t stop it. You are part of the problem.

If you have ever told a woman she should wear make up or shave or pluck something or wear anything she didn’t want to wear. You are part of the problem.

Review: Sunspots


Sunspots
Sunspots by Karen S. Bell
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I’m sorry. I just couldn’t get into this book. The first chapter was okay. I felt sorry for the main character as she lived through her losses. But mostly the rest was memories of her falling in love with the cowboy-lawyer or whatever he was. I just didn’t like the characters and the writing was so boring that I was looking for other things to read. So thanks. But no thanks. Not for me. I see that others loved it so it must be the kind you love or hate. There are books for everyone and all moods.

By the way, I picked this up for free from BookRooster for honest review.

Morning in the Burned House
Morning in the Burned House by Margaret Atwood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I borrowed this book from my daughter ages ago. She and I both forgot I had it. I remember visiting her and finding it and sitting and reading with fascination during some boring quiet time. She had many poems dogeared and I could say those were my favorites also. I like Margaret Atwood’s writing style, her descriptions were wonderful.

Though the font was small the format of poetry left plenty of empty page to rest my eyes. Even so I needed to take my time with it to fully absorb the depth of the poems before me. I haven’t read poetry for a long time so I had to remember how to think in that abstract way.

Still, I think it’s about time I read The Handmaid’s Tale that was recommended to me decades ago by my friend.

Sorry for missing the last few days. I got to go on holiday with my daughter and son. I got to go to the beach! I really needed that! AND I proved that the barometric pressure is much more stable in CA than it is in NV. I only hurt from using muscles not used normally. My fibromyalgia seemed to fade into that background it used to sit in when I lived there. I want to move back to CA so I can feel healthy again! Anyway, enjoyed visiting with my kids and singing to the top of my lungs with them.!
