Marriage or Bondage?
This will teach you never to question my decisions again!!!" His voice filled the almost empty room.
"Hmmmmm" I heaved a heavy sigh.
"This is a new dimension." I thought to myself. "What have I gotten myself into? Will he actually lock me up in my own home?"
Well, let's face it, this is not a 'home'. I just had to accept the sad reality, so I stopped calling this place a home for a while now, I just refer to it as where I reside. There is no similarity whatsoever between this place where I live and what I have heard people refer to as 'home'... that is a story for another day.
Too many thoughts were going on in my mind, and I was almost going crazy!
Should I beg him? That will only earn me rounds of hot slaps on my already swollen face.
Should I just fight back? Ha! My parents will never see me again, God forbid!
Maybe I should just cooperate with him and figure out a way of escape later. Erm...that actually sounds like a fantasy...
" I will bring you food twice a day or as I deem fit!" His thunderous voice brought me back to the sanity I thought I was losing. I just sat there on the bare floor where he had shoved me to, staring blankly into space. I was not sure if this was real or I was in a trance. I kept pinching myself. He was about to continue to talk, but he stopped suddenly as if he changed his mind. He stormed out of the room and shut the door with a big bang! I could hear the sound of the key doing it's job of perfectly locking the door. Hot tears stream down my swollen and hard cheeks. I reached out to touch my cheeks. I felt terrible pain all over my body. Today's beating was out of this world, that's the only way I can describe it right now. My cheeks hurt so badly. Sometimes I wonder why they get swollen and hard easily. Should they not have gotten used to the constant slaps and punches by now? After all that's all they get to do these days - receive punches and slaps. I can't remember the last time they did what God created them to do - produce that charming and radiant smile, like they used to do, until I brought them along with every other part of me to Tide's house... #domesticviolence#dv#memoirs#diary#journal#dvv
I decided to make Christmas shopping a little easier for my mother this year, and just gave her a list of books I'd either heard about and wanted to read, or stuff I just came across in the shops and wanted, but couldn't afford. This photo represents one of each. Read Make Trouble in half an hour yesterday, and want to plow through My Damage before New Year's. I also have Eric Idle's memoir, and Meet Me In The Bathroom waiting in the wings
Do you celebrate Saint Lucia Day? I love seeing all the posts. It’s not something I’ve done to date but being that I have a lot of Scandinavian in my DNA it may be something we start next year! Check our these awesome friends and how they celebrated Saint Lucia Day! How do you celebrate your ancestors and their traditions? #lightheworld#rootstech
I love Sally Field. She was a keynote speaker at a VDay conference I went to in NYC, 2004 (when I first went freelance. First ever press conference was with her, Eve Ensler, Jane Fonda and human rights activists from around the world - Gloria Steinem had to leave but I got to meet her, too.) I have a few pages of the glorious Michelle Obama left but don't want it to end so have moved on (I always have several books on the go at any time anyway)... this is so beautifully written as she shines a light on more of her becoming more whole ❤❤❤ Do I know anyone else who's reading it? #sallyfield#memoirs#books#trauma#anxiety#recovery#healing
Giving free recycling workshops "From Trash to Treasure".

Já convido para o lançamento do livro na terça-feira de Carnaval no dia cinco de março de 2019! Mas ele já está disponível para pré venda no site da Amazon:
Sobre o livro:
Especialista o na área de mitos, Joseph Campbell, já dizia que os mitos não são uma mentira, são, na verdade, poesia e metafísica que conectam verdades em diferentes histórias. Um dos mitos que chama a atenção é o de Eros e Psiquê.
O livro se baseia então na história pós mito, já da era moderna à contemporânea, e sob a visão (e supervisão) do Deus do Amor.
