MALIGNANT NARCISSISM- ITS SCREAMING-PIRANHA CHARACTERISTICS

FIRST AND FOREMOST: No conscience. Piranhas dont appear to have consciences either. They lash out at anything for any reason. Oddly actually afraid of other fish, they appear to have no control over their appetites nor about attacking whatever is near, friend or foe. A person with the psychopathy of malignant narcissism, knows right from wrong, but treats oneself as some say in the South “extra-extra precious”… and...

Treasure We Could Give To Others on Mother’s Day

Dear Brave Souls: SOME WAYS TO SEE MOTHER’S DAY In the United States, it is Mother’s Day. It is a time that began long ago to recognize women who are mothers.

What Media Doesnt Cover: Baltimore

I spoke with several persons from Baltimore this week. What are we not hearing about Baltimore on the news? I asked. Barrage. Dozens of ideas about what is actually going on in Baltimore vs what is covered in the perpetual loops on tv news, for instance. One of the repeating ideas/thoughts was that the mayor of the city of Baltimore was struggling to keep all under control. That the District Attorney of Baltimore had to walk a line...

I Was Going To Write a Long Article on Procrastination, but…

This from the Atlantic is a good article on procrastination. I was going to put this article up sooner, but I was eaten like Jonah in the Whale… come to think of that, maybe that’s what procrastination is… a whale that munches you and you are immobilized in the whale’s belly. How did that story end, now? And why is the word describing putting things off, so long? Maybe it ought be called ‘the nots’...

On MLK Day: Ruby Elzy, the Erased “First” American Soprano

Just some thoughts about trying to keep the magestic and human Martin Luther King IN “Martin Luther King Day,” as the lead figure, without erasing him in any way… as other ‘first of their kinds’ have sometimes been erased from our history. Leaving a hole in the fabric of accomplishments hard won. Maya Angelou was my friend. We met on book tour in 1992. We spoke just days before her death last year. In...
