Mercedes Ngoh

Meditation is not a religion. Nor is it a tradition involving levitation while sitting cross-legged on the floor pretending to be an all-knowing master of the universe.

'Perhaps we should sit down,' WHY DID I SAY THAT? Now he thinks I've killed someone he loves. Great start. With all of the calm of a fully charged vibrator I continued: 'I have something I need to ask you, I was wondering how you would feel, if you would be okay with, if you would allow me...(yep that's all the ways to say that sentence - must get to the point) if I asked Phoebe to marry me?'

Claudia Spahr

The western woman has power, education and compassion. She creates, connects and integrates... Childfree ladies can transform their lives radically overnight and act on impulse... Motherhood shouldn't define being a woman and we shouldn't let the 'mother-tick-yes-or-no-box' divide us.
