The Hit List

The Hit List – My Final 24

by Theresa Reed on October 20, 2018

My friend Alexandra Franzen recently published a book called So This Is The End: A Love Story. The story is centered around this idea: “What if doctors could revive you from death―and give you an extra 24 hours of life?” This is a weighty, profound question to ponder. Of course, it’s easy to go the […]

The Hit List – Road trip hips

by Theresa Reed on October 13, 2018

My husband and I have done many a road trip over the years. We’re hard core – preferring to drive through the night in many cases. We can be on the road for hours without too many problems.  Well, that WAS the case. As we drove to Detroit the other day, there were a few […]

The Hit List – Good spiritual hygiene

by Theresa Reed on October 6, 2018

The world seems to be in flux right now. Tensions are high, people are mean, boundaries are being crossed left and right. For those of us who work in the metaphysical realm, we know that during times like this, good spiritual hygiene is necessary. Without it, stress levels elevate and suddenly you find yourself walking […]

The Hit List – Mother love

by Theresa Reed on September 29, 2018

They say that the strongest love is a mother’s love. I don’t know about that because watching my daughter fall in love has been having a much more magical effect on her than any mom lovin’ I’ve been delivering over the years. It’s been a joy to witness this unfolding. I swoon over whatever details […]

The Hit List – Divination is IN

by Theresa Reed on September 22, 2018

“Is divination out?” That was the question posed to me recently. Apparently, there are a few folks in the mystical realms who are once again trying to convince the community that divination or the dreaded “f-word” – fortune-telling – are no longer in vogue. Nope, instead, some sort of therapeutic law of attraction mashup is […]

The Hit List – On experience

by Theresa Reed on September 15, 2018

In the instant gratification world we live in, it only takes a swipe for something to happen. So I guess it should come as no surprise that people expect that they can master a subject in ultra-short order and start profiting from that said “expertise.”  The idea of taking one’s time to develop a skill […]

The Hit List – Forgive or forget

by Theresa Reed on September 8, 2018

A long time ago, a friend betrayed me. The pain reached all the way down to my marrow and stung like a thousand bees all at once. There would be no going back, no healing, no friendship or contact with her ever again.  Those wounds are still there to this day. Except now, there is […]

The Hit List – Still breathing

by Theresa Reed on September 1, 2018

I’ve written a few weeks back about my manuscript fiasco. Since that time, I’ve been able to patch my rough draft together into something that resembles a book. But now…the editing begins in earnest. Frankly, I prefer the editing part. Trimming things down, weeding out the grammar issues, and wrangling the writing not to mention […]

The Hit List – Squirrel Trouble

by Theresa Reed on August 25, 2018

Last Sunday, I had a bucketful of good intentions. I would have a stress-free day and write my face off. After getting coffee, of course. But when I arrived back at the crib, a baby squirrel changed up the whole order of my day. As I got out of the car, I noticed something lying […]

The Hit List – Bit by bit

by Theresa Reed on August 18, 2018

There’s an old Yoruban proverb that I read in a book a long time ago that went something like this: “Bit by bit, we eat the head of the rat.” (I believe the book might be Ibase Orisa: Ifa Proverbs, Folktales, Sacred  History & Prayer by Awo Fa Lokun Fatunmbi.) Sounds pretty gross but the proverb is […]
