Mammy: A term of Endearment

Mammy: A Term of Endearment    I have a new novel I titled, Mammy: A Term of Endearment. Mammy is a fictional story of the slavery of a black woman who after being freed became my father’s mammy. Some feel the word Mammy is a racial term, but my father considered it a term of endearment.    It’s a story of the discrimination many blacks and poor whites still face today, not only in the south but also in the north. It is a story of love, hate, romance, and humor.    Included in the novel are…See More

Finding a great book beyond the in-crowd mainstream

A new way to find great new booksby Rob Neufeld            I keep searching for ways to be as open as possible to great books as they come out.  It’s not easy because: 1) our guides—publishers and reviewers—follow certain channels, comparable to radio playlists, to stay smart; and 2) a random approach is impractical.            Readers’ online reviews help, but there’s too much; I need a filter, based partly on authority.  I could ask people in person—and that’s pretty interesting.  Rarely do…See More

"Us versus Them" does not help fight against racism; worsens sectionalism

“Us versus them” is not good historyby Rob Neufeld             Writing about history and the complex lives that play out within it does not sell as well as team spirit, especially in this age of clicks and likes.            I recently confronted this truth when I wrote my article last week about the minds of our leaders in 1851. The word “slavery” was added to the headline to alert people to its relevance.  Seeing that term connected people to a cause they felt strongly about, particularly in…See More

Christmas Everyday and The Girl Behind the Curtain

I need one full day at home per week to get things done. This past week being Pre-Christmas, wrapping gifts was in order. My bedroom was a disaster. It was an unholy Grinch's nightmare...and I was in heaven. I use Christmas cards from last year for gift tags, color coordinating them with the paper. The boxes that my daughters' boots came in (there are 3) were chic and didn't need wrapping, just a bow.I had finished decorating my new artificial tree with Baby's Breath  flowers as trimming. It…See More

Oysters & Pearls

My eyes spot a giant pearl, nesting in white gold. It beams like an all knowing lunar orb, looking back as if it sees me. Am I an oyster or a pearl? I wonder. Advertised smart from an online jeweler, I choose the right size, 5.5. I’m really bad about jewelry, losing it, breaking it. I picture wearing it at tradeshows, with French tips, when the appearance of my hands matters. Price differentiates between natural pearls and cultured pearls. Of three tons of harvested oysters, maybe three or four…See More
