The Summer of ‘66

Judi Lake

Restlessly squirming inside my desk, my eyes insidiously gaze at the clock above Sister Angela Joseph as she gave her final “speech of the year" to the class. “Now remember, boys and girls, even though it’s summer vacation, you are still students of St. Rose of Lima School . I expect each one of you to act appropriately and make Jesus proud of you." Monotonously, the class shoots back a bland “Ye-e-es, Sister."...

Our America: A Nation Filled With “Contemporary Moral Values”

Judi Lake

For years, the uproar regarding the same-sex marriage issue in the United States has been deafening. On Thursday, May 15, 2008, California's Supreme Court declared that gay couples in the nation's most populous state can marry legally. This historical ruling is a monumental victory for the entire gay community. "Essentially, this boils down to love. We love each other. We now have equal rights under the law," declared an...

A Solution For Kids “Born With The Wrong Body”

Judi Lake

Whenever his mother was in town, James, a bright child of nine, would visit me often. “You’re so much fun, Miss Judi and you like to do lots of different things." “Why thank you, Mr. James! You are a true pleasure to be around as well!" “Yeah, it’s so cool; I love Donnie and when he marries my mom, you’re gonna be my Aunt, right?" Hugging the child, I enthusiastically reply, “You betcha! I am so proud...

3537 Bainbridge Avenue

Judi Lake

I walked out of the front door of 3537 Bainbridge Avenue a much stronger, faith-driven woman than when I had entered twenty-seven months prior. Discerning a call for the religious life, and to the shock of many, I was accepted into the Franciscan Sisters of Alleghany, NY, as a postulant within their community. “We’ve never had anyone within our community who’s had your “spirit" before; you are very different from our...

What Size Underwear Do You Wear?

“Her grave’s not even cold and he’s already dating!" “That’s terrible!" “Terrible? It is incorrigible! She was such a good woman — he should show more respect ! At least one year mourning…Judi, what do you think?" Distracted, I listlessly reply, “Huh?" “Judi! John ! He already has a girlfriend !" “Oh, that, mmm…" Pausing, I thoughtfully study each curious face in front of me and playfully ask, “Tell me girls, what...

Mamma, Tell Me About Martin Luther King, Jr.?

Judi Lake

It began with the question, “ Mamma, tell me about Martin Luther King ?" Lifting my baby girl onto my lap, I began, “Well, Sweetie, Martin Luther King, Jr., was a Godly man who grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, a very long time ago. Just like you and your friends, Martin liked to play sports, ride his bicycle and fly his kite." “ Did he have any brothers or sisters ?" “Yes, Laura, Martin had one brother, A.D....

Shame On You, Amazon!

Judi Lake

These days, the buzz within the publishing world has been focused on Amazon’s move to monopolize… oops, I mean, decision to tie the availability of all self-published pod (print of demand) books and terms of sales to the production of their subsidiary company, BookSurge. Huh ? What does that mean ? Basically, Amazon is now requiring all POD authors to use their BookSurge program or their seller rights on Amazon.com will..

An Affair Worth Talkin’ About

Judi Lake

I can’t remember when I first met her, but I do know it was love at first “bite". There she was, seductively placed in front of me, eager to be devoured. Experiencing her was the most heavenly experience any young person could expect. With one long, luscious bite, she swept me into a love affair that has lasted more than forty years. Some of her charm, no doubt, is the enchantment enjoyed by everyone: young and old. Continue
