What writer's block has in common with being tone deaf

Two of my favorite persons called to make sure I was okay because they noticed I hadn't blogged in awhile. I almost claimed "writer's block" until I remembered telling my students that there is no such thing. In actuality, I simply haven't felt inspired. And yes, I know that's no excuse.

Anyway, telling me that you have writer's block is like telling my mom that you can't play piano because you're tone deaf. It just ain't gonna fly. Sorry. There is no such thing as writer's block, just as my mother would say no one is tone deaf.

It takes a passel of women to raise a child

In some corners of the world, it takes a village to raise a child. In my world, it takes a whole passel of women -- pseudo moms to my daughters. Yes, I know I'm their mom and technically, I am the one who raised them. Okay, sure, their dad had a little to do with it. But it's Mother's Day. He'll get his own day in June.
