    Review by LiveTrue Book Reviewer, Melanie Davis As I sat down to read Making Room for You, there was my dog – on the floor rolling through messy piles of paper I’d made in an attempt organize the clutter. I thought of the state of my drawers, closet, pantry, and the borage of stuff under the seats of my car.  … Read more

Candy, gum, pennies.   “I got a rock.” I know how you feel, Charlie Brown. Except I got soap.  You were right about one thing, though: there is no Great Pumpkin. […]

    Sometimes the striving for the accomplishment is more memorable than the accomplishment itself; and ultimately, when looking back, one realizes that both the striving and the accomplishment, took place simply because of love.

  • How To Tell People You Don’t Want Kids.

    In this blog, I hope to give you pointers to stop any confrontation to remain childfree by choice. Remember, most of the time, people will mean well. They chose to have children. Many of them are happy. The ones who aren’t will rarely tell you that but want you to suffer along. Remember: 1.Your goal isn’t to defend a personal choice. Just like parents are rarely made to defend their choice, neither should you. A simple statement saying you prefer the childfree -by -choice lifestyle is all that’s necessary. Don’t go into details or pronounce how much you love kids when…
  • A FASCINATING READ, IN MY OPINION!

    http://aeon.co/magazine/nature-and-cosmos/pregnancy-is-a-battleground-between-mother-father-and-baby/ My facebook book site was temporarily closed down today not allowing me to post or comment. I feel Facebook slapped my hands saying the above article, “doesn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards”. In my opinion, it was closed because of some ignorant person who perceived that article as a slap to the Madonna myth. Read the article for yourself. See why, more than ever, pronatalism is alive and well and must be brought to the attention of others.

    hometownnewsPostedReceiving any award is always an ago boost. When I heard the International Committee for International Childfree Day (August 1, 2014) chose me for their inaugural “Lifetime Contributor Award”, I had mixed emotions. Why wasn’t I honored as their, “Woman of The Year”? Did they give me this as a pity party knowing I faced cancer  this year?  Finally, the word “Lifetime” made me feel old! Then I re-thought the whole thing. It’s an honor! I’m proud and feel excited to be worthy of this first time recognition.  When I think…

    Mother’s Day In America By Marcia Drut-Davis Before I share some heartfelt emotions, I want to honor those mothers, grandmothers and aunts who devote their lives to their children, grandchildren nieces or nephews. There are many deserving of adoration. How lucky for those children! Sadly, in my opinion, the Mother’s Day celebration in America is another example of the dangers of pronatalism. It exalts the status of being a mother to something short of being a saint. Just the mere mention of the revered word “mother’ makes many swoon with love and joy. It discounts the many hearts…

That scene is famous now, and it helped to earn the movie an Oscar for Best Visual Effects. The big news was the female lead — daring stuff […]
