Out of Joint with Life

by Annette Wagner, Managing Editor Today I am writing about one of those Hidden Stories in my life which I constantly struggle with. A story that began when I was five years old.

It goes like this: Thou must MAKE MONEY. Making money is...

Naked Vulnerability

Naked Vulnerability by Michelle Ida Fairchild I sat in the creek, sweet water gurgling and caressing my naked body.  I gazed at the greenery, the light reflecting off the water, and felt the very chilly water pour over my thighs, while the gentle breath of warm air on my face and shoulders offered a stark contrast.  Under the canopy of tall trees and dappled sunlight it was easy to feel small, but in a good way, in the way you feel...
