Thanksgiving Breathe

Annie Stein

  After months, MONTHS, of silence I’m back ! With Thanksgiving just a day and a half away- how can I not be? Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s not about presents! Although I am a total present Ho and have never once on a birthday said those two words “No Gifts.” It’s not about chocolate bunnies or colored eggs that you have to troll through plants to find. Or […]

The Chicken or the Egg

Annie Stein

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? After watching the documentary series called OJ : Made in America, not the TV series starring Cuba Gooding, but the extremely well done doc with original footage and interviews, I contend it was the chicken. The chicken came first and out of fear that the egg would grow up to surpass it, or not knowing that the chicken and the egg are […]

S.O.S.

Annie Stein

There’s only one reason I’m publicly sharing what I’m about to say— to help others. Going public with this is both hard and embarrassing for me. I’m a gal who likes to present well. But in order to be a real advocate, I need to be real. To influence each other, and change the rules, regulations and behaviors that govern our the world, we have to share the truth of […]

Redemption.

Annie Stein

I can not not write on the Easter Eve. Redemption. It’s what’s it’s all about. Redemption and forgiveness. re·demp·tion rəˈdem(p)SH(ə)n/ noun 1. the action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil. “God’s plans for the redemption of his world” I haven’t written lately because the thing I want to write about, I don’t want to write. Everyone else is and I’d like to stay far away. I […]

A New Year’s Prayer

Annie Stein

It’s all rev John Cager’s fault I haven’t posted in over a month. Really. Someone needs to take the heat and I vote for him. The first Sunday of January I went to his service and in his sermon he talked about being watchful of our conversation and communication,  about the importance of having both be uplifting. AKA;  Add to the positive , not the negative. So, quite frankly, as […]

WINS

Annie Stein

This morning when I got into my car and turned it on Don Henley was singing “everything thing is different now “ over and over as the last song I was listening to on my drive home last night ended. “Everything is different now” I sang with Don. A terrorist’s job is to terrorize. To fill one with extreme fear. They, the terrorists, are doing a damn good job. They […]

 Not My Favorite Subject.

Annie Stein

  Not My Favorite Subject. Hello Readers, Let me say right off the bat that I am grateful for anyone who wants to read what I have to write. During an existential moment this morning I was examining why I do what I do and what the point of it was anyway. Anyone been there? Asked recently what my goal is with this blogging… “game plan” was the phrase, my […]

Travelin’ Words

Annie Stein

More posts, less words. This is what I’m gonna try to do folks. I do get wordy… Just came back from a week in NYC and a week in South Carolina. We saw the those dense grey clouds, bulbous and ready to wreck havoc , heading in just as we were heading out. Talk about the nick of time.
Just want to say that traveling is the best way to wakeup […]

The Douche Lady

Annie Stein

I am compelled to write about my friend Leone whom I loathed at first sight.  True. I first laid eyes on her 40 plus years ago in an acting class in New York City. The class was a hard one to get into. All were very serious actors except for a hand full of tall Nordic looking models. The teacher couldn’t resist. Leone marched in one night in her silver […]
