This Sunday is Halloween. Are you ready?
In addition to selling goo-gobs of candy, costumes, and decorations, much of the focus is on kids having fun. Kids of any age.
Some of us never outgrow Halloween. Even if we stop eating sugar.
We love putting on costumes. And/or making them…
I asked for a microscope for my tenth birthday.
Thanks to the vision cast by my sixth-grade science teacher. He took us to the Pacific Ocean, where he introduced us to the magical worlds within the seemingly small confines of tide pools. …
How do you get rid of an uninvited vampire?
She stumbled over here in a drunken rage, fresh from a feast. Yet as you can see by the howl in her growl, this girl still ain’t satisfied.
What’s she doing in a graveyard? Vampires like live blood, right. Not the fully embalmed rotting corpses we’ve got.
Real people can’t even get drunk on embalming fluid, let alone vampires. Ooops. When they get drunk, it’s on fresh human blood. The red kind.
Wait a minute. Looks like she’s got her eyes on our precious wolf.
This can’t be!

Oh willy nilly, oh hilly billy,
don’t be silly or frilly, or dilly.
No, be mind-boggling without ogling
or Googleing or needling or noodling
anything and everything, be the…
Happy Menopause Awareness Month!
What did you say, how dare that be a cause for celebration? Maybe it should be a curse for flagellation? And who’s big idea was this, anyway?
The change of life as it’s called can be wild, unpredictable, and spooky, right? …
Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. ~ Brené Brown
A good chunk of my shame lives in my breasts.
I did not put it in there.
But it seemed to grow in volume along with my budding…
Join us here at Middle-Pause in celebrating the release of Marilyn’s latest book!

Insomnia had me baffled until here recently.
Whatever it was keeping me from sleeping was doing a damn good job of hiding until now.
Last night when I rolled over hoping to not even wake up fully in so doing, I bumped into something.
Not my stack of prop-me-up-in-bed pillows…
Greetings of the season!
