Manifest Destiny is a Polite Word for Massacre

by Mila Cuda

My country’s doormat
reads: SORRY, NO VACANCIES
Cheap apology.

I want it to read:
YOU’RE WELCOME HERE, DO COME IN
Make yourself at home.

My country’s doormat
dressed in its hypocrisy
knows not of fleeing.

Only of conquer.
Pioneer is immigrant.
Now unlock the door.

Bestselling author Bernadette Murphy re-discovered herself in mid-life by facing her fears with Orgasmic benefits in the Bestselling book HARLEY and ME

Murphy wrote a book that is riveting, intimate, and a fun read. Learning about our four brain chemicals that determine our personality traits is interesting however, I found Murphy’s personal experience even more intriguing. Not every woman is going to embrace mid-life on a Harley, but living vicariously through Murphy’s travels gives us insight into what it means to embrace mid-life rather than complain about it. Her story and her book is compelling. What a joy it was to spend an afternoon in my easy chair riding on a bike with Bernadette Murphy.
