A Woman's Place
"A woman's place is in the house…and the senate, " quips Kristin Hannah. bestselling author of The Nightingale, while Elizabeth Gilbert author of Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia had a slightly different take on a woman's place or role in the world. "A woman's place is in the kitchen...sitting in a comfortable chair, with her feet up, drinking a glass of wine and watching her husband cook dinner."
Even in English there is controversy about what and where a woman's place is. It is even more complicated and nuanced when it comes to other languages and cultures. A Woman's Place in the Dictionary by Kimberly Burnham is a collection of before and after poems that look at the word for woman in several languages and what the dictionary entry itself says about women as well as how the definitions before and after the word woman say about her. Some of the poems touch on synonyms and homonyms for the word "woman" in different languages.
Women and Dictionary Poetry
In the Oxford English dictionary, the word "woman" is defined as an adult human female. The word immediately before it is "woma" meaning a brownish-grey Australian python found in sandy desert areas. The entry after "woman" is "womb."
And so in an English dictionary a woman finds herself between a snake and a part of her own body
In other languages the word for "woman", "frau" (German), "wahine" (Hawaiian), or "biscuit" (a particularly attractive woman in Rasta or Caribbean Patois) is unique to that language. The words that come before and after "woman" vary from one bilingual dictionary to another. This is a collection of dictionary poems exploring the word "woman" and the context we find ourselves in languages of the world.

Riding Out of Missoula, MT, with Torah on My Mind by Kimberly Burnham 4/30/2019
There’s a moment from 2013 that is forever etched in my head. I am standing in the parking lot of Har Shalom in Missoula, MT. Beside me in the early morning sunlight is Rabbi Laurie Franklin, who I met just two days earlier, when other Hazon bicyclists and I rode into Missoula on a Tuesday night. She looks at me with soft wise eyes – the kind of wisdom born of tough experiences, I think – as she welcomes me to her synagogue. As she warmly shakes my hand I feel truly seen. It is my second week of riding in support of sustainable agriculture and the environment. Seattle, WA,... Read More https://reformjudaism.org/blog/2019/04/30/riding-out-missoula-mt-torah-my-mind
Writing the Torah and Honoring the Name of God by Kimberly Burnham 12/16/2015
There was such joy in his voice as Rabbi Kevin Hale talked about going to the river near his house to wash himself in a mikveh (ritual bath) before writing the name of God in the Torah scroll he worked on. Letters gather into words. Words spiral into sacred texts. Each one is different. Each one strives to create a world of peace. Each one calls out a name of God. One of about 100 Torah scribes in the United States, Hale taught a dozen or so attendees at the 2015 Parliament of World Religions in Salt Lake City, UT, how to sing out each letter and word as we inscribed "...

Crossing the Border, Jewish at the Boundaries by Kimberly Burnham 7/24/2015
"You know, I was never Christian. I was born Jewish."
"I know, and your momma and your ema and your grandparents were all born Jewish," I said, deep in conversation with my 6-year-old stepdaughter, Shaya.
"I, on the other hand, am the only one in my family that is Jewish," I added.
"Because you turned Jewish," she piped up.
Three years ago – before I knew anything about this amazing child or her mother, who I fell in love with, or her twin brother and the 9-year-old twins – I decided to bicycle... Read More https://reformjudaism.org/blog/2015/07/24/crossing-border-jewish-boundaries

Imagine if this was your day....a headache before you went to bed, then you woke up at 2 am and never did quite get back to sleep. At seven when the alarm went off you thought about calling in sick but there is just too much to do and then irritated you realized you ran out of breakfast cereal and had a pop tart instead. Your eyes can't focus on the report you are preparing. Last night's head ache is coming back and you wish that you had had time for a better lunch.....It is not a good day for you or your liver.
What would your liver say, if it had a voice, a say in how your life flows, the amount of energy you have, how well you sleep and how happy you are?
In fact, your liver is talking all the time, communicating how it feels and is functioning. Here is a brief Liverese to English translation guide, followed by some things you can do to bridge the communication gap:
Low energy in the afternoon : Low energy often means the liver is not doing it job. Normally the liver regulates many substances important in maintaining your body's normal state, stores nutrients including blood sugars and clears out waste products.
Easy bruising or bleeding gums - The liver is partially responsible for maintaining a good level of clotting factors.
Anemia and other vitamin deficiencies - The liver also stores fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E and K), folate, vitamin B 12 , and minerals such as copper and iron.
Dark circles under the eyes and yellowish skin color - The liver is telling you it is not clearing toxins and the bilirubin from old red blood cells is turning the skin a yellowish hue.
Swollen ankles - Decreased amounts of liver produced protein, albumin may lead to swelling and water retention.
Difficulty digesting fats - Bile produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder is a greenish fluid need for fat digestion.
High cholesterol - Cholesterol, needed for cell membrane structure, hormone balance and proper nerve conduction, is produced or processed in the liver. If the production or processing is off then cholesterol levels rise. A healthy liver keeps it all in balanced.
Hot flashes and other hormonal disturbances - Yup, liver again as it plays an important role in hormonal modification and endocrine balance.
Chest distention, sighing, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, diarrhea, depression, moodiness, PMS, breast tenderness, painful and/or irregular menstruation - Liver talking again.
Headaches - The liver removes harmful substances and irritants from the blood, when it doesn't they can irritate the lining of the brain.
Hang over - Alcohol and sugar are primarily metabolized by the liver, and accumulation of its products can lead to cell injury and liver problems.
Gallbladder pain / gallstones - The gallbladder is considered in Traditional Chinese Medicine to be the pair to the liver and as you know when one partner is not doing his job the relationship suffers.
Trouble sleeping between 1am and 3am - These are considered the peak hours for the liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Difficulty between 1 am and 3 am is often ascribed to an unhappy liver.
Problems with the eyes, tendons, tears (dry eyes), nails - All associated with liver's acupuncture meridian which flows along the inner leg on both sides.
Anger management issues - In Traditional Chinese Medicine the liver, considered a wood element is associated with the emotion anger.
So, what is there to do to ensure everyone is happier?
If you think of vision / eyesight, liver / gallbladder health and anger forming a triangle, three connected points, each influencing the other for good or for bad. Imagine one point of the triangle is your vision, your ability to see the colors of a rainbow, recognize the face of your best friend, or read an inspirational book like, Pebbles in the Pond, Transforming the World One Person at a Time.
Another point is the liver and the gallbladder, they are linked in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The liver meridian associated with the color green, runs along the inner leg. The gallbladder meridian runs along the outer edge of the leg and up into the area over the ears. Rubbing the head as in a scalp massage can stimulate the liver and gallbladder points. Pressure on liver and gallbladder points along the leg is also thought to soothe the liver.
Due to the interaction between the three points of this triangle, improving the eyes with exercises, eating more essential fatty acids, such as olive oil, avocado, salmon or through acupuncture or manual therapy will also have a beneficial effect on anger management and liver / gallbladder health.
You can go in another door and work on improving the liver and gallbladder by eating organic foods, and maintain a diet low in processed sugars or alcohol. There are many herbs and detoxifying foods that can help the liver and gallbladder function more efficiently. Improving liver and gallbladder health typically also improves vision and anger management skills. Going in the anger door of the triangle will also affect the other two points.
Another way to increase internal communication is to rest quietly with one hand over the liver (right side of the lower rib cage) and the other hand on the area you want to connect (ie) the heart to improve blood flow and cholesterol or the spleen (left side of lower rib cage) to improve the way the liver talks to the immune system or the head to improve headache symptoms.
By talking to a psychologist or life coach, doing things you love and enjoy, watching one of your favorite movies, like my favorite, The Last Holiday or writing in a journal can each improve your anger management skills. As your level of uncontrollable anger or rage decreases, your vision and liver / gallbladder health may also improve. By improving one of the three you can improve the other two.
One of my favorite Japanese sayings is, "There are many ways to the top of Mount Fuji." Once you understand relationships in your body or in your life you can find the access or doorway into improving the overall system. For some people doing talk therapy or coaching for anger issues can be the easiest, fastest way to improve their life. for someone else eliminating processed sugar from their diet might be the best way to improve vision and reactivity to the world.
I See What Your Are Saying, If Your Liver Could Talk by Kimberly Burnham, PhD, The Nerve Whisperer Originally Published at Giving Voice to Your Story with Dorit Sasson
Originating in Scotland in the 15th century
"caught red handed"
is thought to refer to people caught
with blood on their hands
from murder or poaching
In Albanian "i kuq" or "kuqe" is the color red
"flokëkuq" is red-haired
"kuqem" is to become red
"kuq" is to make red
while "kapem në vendin e krimit"
an idiom meaning to be caught red-handed
literally means cling to place of crime
so in Albania is neither about red or the hand
"për t'u kapur me dorë të kuqe"
is translated seized or caught with red hand
but begs the question of whether the caught
or the catcher's hand is red
Exercise: What does "red handed" bring to mind for you? Does it change as you think about it?

Kenyan International Poetry, Arts and Cultural Festival and Anthology Benefit the Education of Kenyan Children
The Kenyan International Poetry, Arts and Cultural Festival June 14, 2019 - June 24, 2019 in Bumala, Busia County, Western Kenya, mark the International Day of the African Child on 16th June 2019. Bumala is a small town situated in Busia County in Western Region of Kenya
On 16th June 1976 in Soweto,South Africa, about ten thousand black school children marched in a column more than half a mile long protesting the poor quality of their education and demanding their right to be taught in their own language. Hundreds of these children were shot and killed. So in 1991 the Organization of African Unity (OAU) initiated this day. Therefore every year Governments, Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), International organisations and other stakeholders gather to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the full realization of the rights of children in Africa.
Its on this basis that The Hillary Mainga Foundation has organised for the international poetry, arts and cultural festival in Kenya to raise awareness about the right of every African child to access quality education. Participants have submitted poetry that truly evoke emotions and ignite thirst for children rights advocacy. An event anthology will be done and shared with every participant.

Climate Change Driven Compentition on Lake Turkana
In Swahili "amani" means peace
security and safety in Swahili
but at Lake Turkana
there is no "amani"
no "akimaima" which means to soothe
to appease or pacify in the local language of Turkana
to cause to calm down
but how do we calm down climate change
droughts that kills the cattle
I must seek out alternatives
even illegal sources of income
withstand conflict between the newcomers and those here first
I have no choice
I must feed my family here in northern Kenya
with a rivalry between Kenyan tribes and Ethiopian fisherfolk
everywhere is the other side of the my lake
where peace is called "selami" in Amharic
but there is no "selami" here at the border
between the two nations
"We need to look at the fact that for every thousand dollars we spend preparing for war, we spend only a dollar on efforts to create peace." - Marianne Williamson.
Proto-Khoekhoe—"ǂxĩ" (peace, to be peaceful), "ǂxoa" (to criticize obliquely), "!ae" (to calm, quieten down), "ǁʔu" (to be calm, at ease, undisturbed)—South Africa.
