float on

I do my very best thinking when I am floating in my daily hot bath. There amongst the steam and suds, my notorious imagination is free to wander where it may. Today, it wandered here — a place where it seems to be landing quite frequently as of late. It’s true…I’ve got broads on the brain:

Some women are afraid to tell their truths, admit their regrets, or cop to their mistakes, because they fear that it will somehow make them appear weak — but, as I have learned in my own life, it is, in fact, exactly the opposite. When women tell their truths, not only do THEY become more powerful — they, in turn, empower the younger women around them…to not be afraid to make mistakes, to have regrets, to tell their own truths.

We MUST tell our truths. It is the only way back.

And more importantly, it is the only way FORWARD.

This is what I think about in the bathtub.

About muffybolding

Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and hipmama.com. She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
