My diary has been here since 2005. I have always used it to reflect and process. Writing has been the best therapist for me, though I have actually had some excellent therapists, as well. I took a 12-year break and recently began using it as a launch pad for writing a memoir.

Until 6/23/2019, I was OnionGirl. See entry of the same date for why the change.

The Real Controversy

September 21, 2020
I've tried twice before to express on Facebook what I felt when I watched the Netflix movie, "Cuties."  Both times, before, I thought that most people got the gist of what I was saying, but there were still several people who needed to chime in about child pornography and perverts masturbating to...

  • A True Story for #FunnyFriday
    September 4, 2020
    This is a 100% true story that I think will work for #FunnyFriday, a Friday tradition in my favorite Facebook group. Almost 30 years ago, when my baby sister, Audra, was about to turn 13, she begged my mom to allow her to get a Ouija board. She was having a slumber party and thought it would be&h...

  • Inverted
    August 26, 2020
    In my last entry, I was discussing a memory that has bothered me for some time.  I then mentioned interrupting my writing to watch the movie "Patch Adams" with Drew. That movie spoke to me on multiple levels.  If you haven't seen it, you should.  It's based on a true story. I don't want to…

  • And Still More Puss
    August 24, 2020
    Sorry about the gross title, but I don't know how else to describe it.  I purge the wound, or at least, I think I have, and then I find it runs far deeper than I realized. Yesterday, I wrote about an event that happened 30 years ago.  Pinkie was the apparent villain of the story,…

  • Shower Thoughts, Now with Profanity
    August 22, 2020
    I have had more than my share of drama for one life.  Through counseling and a lot of writing, I feel like I've worked most of it out. I'm usually in the shower when one of those deep, gangrenous wounds begins to surface again. This morning I was remembering a baby shower I'd attended when…

  • TOTW 82 – The Root of All Evil
    August 20, 2020
    Many people believe that the bible says that money is the root of all evil.  That is a fragment of what the bible says is the root of all evil.  In First Timothy, chapter 6, verse 10, it says, "For the love of money is the root of all evils, and some people in their…

    August 7, 2020
    An essay I'm considering video recording myself reading: I am holding an urn with the ashes of one of my beautiful fur babies. He would have been 12 years old, along with his brother and sister, on December 21. He was a bit of an oaf of a dog: Large and clumsy, he always managed…

  • Real Life Magic = Love
    August 6, 2020
    There are so many paths that I have taken on which I have observed what I conclude to be magic at the core.  I'm going to re-tell a story in which I hadn't realized all of the magic involved when I told it the first time. It began in 2008, when I was buying a…

  • I’m Too Expensive to Live
    July 24, 2020
    If you didn't know,  I have a condition called Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID).  My body doesn't produce enough of the immunoglobulin that allows the body to produce antibodies to infection.  Before I was diagnosed, I had regular bouts of bronchitis and pneumonia as well as an ovarian abs...

  • TOTW 80 – Moved On
    July 21, 2020
    What's something you've moved on from that once meant the world to you? If you refer back to some of my earliest entries, you will read the story of the second most painful breakup of my life.  The first was my marriage, and it was my choice to end it.  It was painful because my…
