  • Water, water not quite everywhere

    When I was a kid I was “born again,” a process that involved being fully and totally immersed in water.
    Much more recently I was on the home stretch of an eight-mile walk in the hot sun when the minister I was walking with kindly poured her drinking water on my hot little head.
    Seldom does water feel so good as when splashed on an overheating noggin in the summertime. As soon as my hair was sopping wet, I certainly felt born anew, able to complete the walk with at least a tiny smidgen of spring in my step.
    Just a cup or two of water, supplied at the crucial time and applied to best advantage, made all the difference in the world.

  • Fair wages are an American tradition

    The first Monday of September, Americans celebrate the workers who make our country strong.
    On Labor Day, we are proud of the traditions that brought us the eight-hour work day, paid vacation and sick days and minimum wage and overtime protections.
    These basic labor standards helped to make our country the wealthiest in the world by creating a vast middle class able to buy the goods and services that kept our economy growing.
    Unfortunately, 129 years after the first Labor Day celebrations, more and more American workers find themselves without some of these basic labor protections.

    Study for a Love Sonnet

    Bards sing of tresses gold as sol’s noonday
    Or locks as onyx-black as midnight’s sea
    Or waves that flow as red as setting day
    Thy hair of brown that you call dirt suits me.

    Bards sing of orbs as green as emerald’s glow
    Or brilliant blue with heaven’s deepest shine
    Or golden brown as fur upon a doe
    Thine eyes of black that you call pitch are fine.

    The head of Barbie thinks no more than stone
    Thy mind teems with many an author’s art
    Thy wit a knife held at the keenest hone
    Thy tongue a spear that strikes right to the heart.

    O take their goddess, O take their Barbie;

  • Fashion Maven: Getting a handle on the heel can be tricky

    I love high heels. They can be so feminine and can really make an outfit pop. I have worn heels for a while now, and with the years comes practice, that’s the reason I can wear a five-inch heel without toppling over at the first step. Believe it or not, walking in heels is not as hard as it seems, as long as you practice.

  • A bite of the Big Apple

    This summer, Teen Pulse Photographer Courtney Collier went on a missions trip to New York. She stayed in East Brooklyn and worked with children and their families who live in the projects.
