    Monday Night Football

    9/18/2019 By Joy Lynn Clark Sometimes I follow sports, sometimes I don’t.  Usually, when I get started I have to keep watching just to know whats going on.  Monday Night, I watched Monday Night Football on ESPN at the local pub.  Had several drinks with my guy friend and ate a burger or two with no bun.  At the start of ESPN’s presentation, Joe Namath was blinging so hard.  Furs, rings, house, cars . . .

    Sexual Freedom In The New World : A Response To Lavrin and El Saffar    

    When I was in college I took a Latin American Women Writers course.  As I have mentioned in past posts, I got heated.  In so many ways I could identify with thesewriters.  I am going to give my Latin Studies professor a break (lol) and publish some of these papers.  This particular paper was my response to, “Rapture Encaged, The Supression of the Feminine in Western Culture” (Routledge, London and New York) by Ruth Anthony El Saffar. The other reading was, “International Feminisms: Latin American Alternatives” (Blackwell Publishers Ltd.)  by Asuncion Lavrin. 10/30/2017  After reading the two histories by Lavrin and El Saffar I immediately notice that sex is a central theme between the two histories. …

    Late Bloomer / Stuck In The Paper

      11/14/2016 I saw this rose today at Palmisano park. ​​Stuck In The Paper Stuck through it all Though I’m gonna fall Wishing I could catch myself Seems like the choices I pick Just keep on making me sick Everything seems bad for my health What the hell is wrong with me?
