  • Free Therapy # 60: There is no Other

    On rare occasions in my life, I’ve suffered momentary break-downs when sudden waves of sorrow would sweep over me in a storm of tears that wrenched up out of me in sobbing pleas and prayers; petitions to some unknown force for answers that never came.

    Scottish Food-To-Go

    There are loads of things I miss about the USA, and near the top of the list are the wonderful restaurants I had practically at my doorstep – and the fast food chains I furtively visited in the dark hours of night, bearing away my prizes, giggling madly while running up my apartment steps for [...]

    Accomplishing the Impossible

    Quite often I’m asked if a certain alteration is possible. I have been altering clothing for over 30 years and I’ve been through a variety of fashion cycles, many fabric and construction changes, and my clients have gone through the inevitable body changes.  I’ve never come across an article of clothing that couldn’t be altered.

    Matt’s Chats: Meet the Other Grigsby – Brother Brian

    Meet Brian Grigsby.  Full disclosure: he’s my much older fraternal twin brother (by 3 minutes).  Brian is a teacher at Shasta High School and the 2014 recipient of the National Space Club Explorer’s Award and has hit me in the head with a rock more than once, although not recently (as far as I know).  [...]

    The Valley of Fear – California, Cannabis and Killing the American Dream

    Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. –1 John 4:20 I like to listen to the radio when I work in the garage. Where I live the [...]

    Mistress of the Mix: Money

    It’s April, and you know what means, don’t you? No, I’m not talking about Easter. Although that happened. And I’m not talking about the looming deadline of April 15th, although that’s coming up too. And unfortunately I’m not even referring to Spring Break, which is currently going on. I’m talking about that thing that destroys [...]

    Just Sayin’: Once More, with Feeling – The Topic of Love

    In February I sat down to write a piece about love. Well, it was Valentine’s Day after all.  I hadn’t written anything productive for a few weeks, so I put on my self-discipline hat and set to work. Oh, I did go on at great and profound lengths about love and how we choose to define [...]

    Free Therapy # 59: Our Purpose Here

    On rare occasions in my life, I’ve suffered momentary break-downs when sudden waves of sorrow would sweep over me in a storm of tears that wrenched up out of me in sobbing pleas and prayers; petitions to some unknown force for answers that never came.

    Menu Please: Delicious Bargains at Tiny Thai Hut

    Pity the poor cilantro hater. Genetically disposed to loathe the pungent herb ubiquitous to Latin and Asian cooking, they find themselves the object of disbelief, mockery, and repeated attempts to recruit them to the legions of cilantro lovers. There are online support groups via Facebook, communities such as  I Hate Cilantro (“The most offensive food known to [...]
