Life is a chalkboard. Okay, let’s restate that for the younger generation. Life is a markerboard. We start out blank, and as we move through life, people write on our markerboard, then we write ...

How many branches can you carry? That’s an important question if you live in certain areas of Africa. Women (yes, the ones relegated to this onerous chore) must search for wood to prepare their ...

A mirror is like a social media post. We can make it show just what we want to see. Are our arms too big? Turn to the side, and they suddenly seem slimmer. Dark circles under our eyes from a ...

Everyone has flaws, ones better covered up. It may be our moodiness before our first cup of coffee. We growl at the coffee table if it gets in our way. There’s nothing wrong with that if ...
