I have been struggling lately with a couple of new problems. (I would say “issues”, but then I’d feel like an earnest young therapist, and we can’t have that.)
One: This blog is supposed to be about parenting, and the lack thereof. It is supposed to be about my journey into the future, into my golden years, and hopefully my Grandma years. I am sort of running out of ideas.
Two: I really want to be a warrior woman. I want to change the world. It goes back to my college years, you know? I want to be on the front lines of a movement to change the political realities of this country. But. I’m a chicken and I can’t seem to get myself into the Occupy Wall Street throng. Gulp.
So, on the advice of some friends, including other bloggers, I am turning my writing attention to another blog, which I began last October after the arrest of my kids on the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s called “Mothering the Occupation”, because I want to be the wise woman, the voice of support and nurturing, and I want to be throwing my voice into the fray.

It is truly past time for reasonable people to demand civil, honest, open discourse and a return to true democracy.
