A few months ago Erika Kind mentioned
a picture I’d posted of a White Rose.
I posted the photo in honor of an anti-fascist
group that called itself the White Rose in 1942.
Erika told me she liked the rose so I said
I’d make another.
When I think of Erika Kind I also think of the
women who follow her and call her sis.
I read their blogs and their comments to each
other and I see love, and light, and respect.
They are professionals and mothers; they are
women with talent and skill.
They work to enrich our lives with art and
So, to Erika Kind and her Sisters,
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
Narcissist on the phone, frantic: I left for a month without giving you the
money I owe you; why didn’t you remind me?
Me: Because you lie to me, then verbally abuse me when I confront you about it. I’ve already said I won’t contact you until you apologize for both in writing.
Narcissist on the phone, a tone of concern: But you said you needed the money!
Me: Add gaslighting to the list of abuses for which I want an apology. Bye.
