Funny, Isn’t It?

So, if you’ve read any of my columns over the past year, you probably know that I am not enamored with the present leader of the free world. After he bombed Syria, I kind of gave him a pass for …

CosmiComedy: Like Yesterday

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Masina-139x190.jpg

I really don’t relate to the idea that I’m old. But at this point, I have to acknowledge that I’ve lived a long time. No one questions my senior citizen discount. The other day at Trader Joes, they didn’t even …

Funny, Isn’t It?

Last week my Yoga teacher, Chas Jansen, urged us to use a New Mind in doing our postures and meditations. What this means is to perform ancient movements of Yoga with which we are quite familiar as if we were …

CosmiComedy: The Happy Wanderer

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Lavinia-153x190.jpg

I wake in my king size bed with my cozy flannel sheets. The heat pump has just kicked on and I curse briefly (and silently) at the slight chill in the room. I stumble to the bathroom a few steps …

Funny, Isn’t It?

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Jeanne-2014-small-190x154.jpg

When you were a little kid, what did your parents tell you that you still live by? Think about it. I’ll bet that some of those early instructions, for better or worse, still drive you in how you approach the …

CosmiComedy: By Bread Alone

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/LaviniaRon-188x190.jpg

The other day, I decided to patronize a local bakery. I want to support the local economy. I had read about all the wonderfully politically correct things this bakery does, using locally milled flour, sticking to old world recipes. Surely …

CosmiComedy: Genevieve!

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Lavinia-NEW-177x190.jpg

Of course I don’t believe in reincarnation, silly. Everyone knows we are living all our lives at once. What I did as the fugitive daughter of a woman burnt at the stake for witchcraft (nowadays we call it herbalism) in …

CosmiComedy: Time Is On My Side (Yes It Is)

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Lavinia-NEW-177x190.jpg

I’m in the throes of a difficult relationship. I’ve tried everything: making lists, letting go, ignoring, scheduling, bargaining, cajoling (ok, begging), but nothing works. No matter what I do, my relationship with Time just keeps getting more difficult. Just the …

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Jeanne-2014-small-190x154.jpg

Usually, when I sit down to write my column, I have a very clear picture of what I want to say—a point of view, an opinion, a destination to reach. Today, this is not the case.

CosmiComedy: To Your Health!

http://www.wncwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Lavinia-NEW-177x190.jpg

I sat down three times trying to start this column. You will read it in December; but, with deadlines et al, I am attempting to write it on November 10, still in shock and disbelief about the election.
