If you know what Depression glass is...then you should get this cartoon joke. Or if you're like me and had no clue what it is... then getting the above cartoon will take a little learning. Don't worry, I only learned about Depression glass this week when I found a book at the library titled: "Depression Glass and It's Many Powers."

My very first thought, when reading the title, was the above cartoon.  Still, I picked up the book thinking it was some type of "new" therapy or "ancient" healing glass or something like that. Intriguing.

Did you know that it was big business that came up with BLACK FRIDAY and Cyber Monday?  Wikipedia says, "'Cyber Monday' is a neologism invented by Shop.org, part of the U.S. trade association National Retail Federation. It was first used within the ecommerce community during the 2005 holiday season."*  I think it has very little to do with selling anything, rather it is the second stage of a 4 part master plan for big business to rule the world.

News Flash: Cutting and Self-injury on the Rise

News Flash: Cutting and Self-injury on the Rise

Cutting/Self-Injury is not just a "teenage girl's" problem.  Men/ boys do it, too. It is no secret that I, like most of you, grew up tormented in one way or another.  For me, I was the outcast with severe "father issues."

One of my mal-productive coping mechanisms was cutting, and it started early for me. This violent self-mutilation was my way out of my inner turmoil. I hid it from my family for years. I can remember the emotions that led up to the act, but I can never remember the pain.  To me, that pain felt better than what was going on in my head.

My home is my sanctuary, sanitarium and asylum... all in one! When I go out, it's only to the do some shopping or pay a bill and or take the kids out to give Mom a respite. The cartoon really touches home for me.  Sometimes, I feel safe in my little corner of my room.  Other times, it's where I lick my wounds to heal. Then when times are rough, my room feels like a little padded cell.  Is it just me? or does anyone else feel this way, too?
