Aftermath of the Aftermath

POSTED ON June 21, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 2 Comments
 

I was in Houston visiting family when I heard the news about the massacre in Orlando. Like everyone else, I was stunned, horrified and deeply saddened. Now just over a week since the shootings, I continue to cycle through an array of emotions. Mostly, I feel grief for all the lives that were lost and ... Read More

A Word About Bob

POSTED ON May 10, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

There has been some chatter and whispering lately about a new man in my life. Frankly, I am a little surprised that anyone is particularly interested. It seems there are better things to do, like arguing politics on Facebook or taking a selfie on the side of a cliff or word bombing the Wikipedia page of ... Read More

All In

POSTED ON April 20, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

For the past several months, I’ve been slamming and jamming to promote my book “Weirdo Simpatico.” I’m not sure I’ve ever worked this hard or with this much intensity. The to-do list has been long. Many of the tasks have required me to wander into unfamiliar territory and to put myself out there in new ... Read More

Punching Valentine’s Day in the Nose

POSTED ON February 08, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Uh oh, here comes Valentine’s Day. Of all the holidays across the calendar year, I’m not sure that any kick up as much emotional dust as this one does. People either really dig it or really loathe it. For some, it is a land mine of expectations, stress and, in come cases, unreasonable need. For ... Read More

Creating in the Void

POSTED ON February 02, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

I recently came across a post by Jennifer Garam entitled “How to Keep Writing When No One Gives a Shit.” She begins the piece with an unflinching overview of the current state of her writing career: “…no publisher is wooing me with six figure advances…nothing I’ve written has gone viral…no one is compulsively refreshing my ...

Going Another Round

POSTED ON January 05, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 4 Comments
 

The abiding ethos of the New Year is to gleefully leap forward- bidding the old year adieu, while revving up for the fresh one ahead. It is a narrative filled with robust enthusiasm, recalibrated resolve and reflective renewal. In the New Year, anything seems possible; this is the year we lose the weight or step ... Read More

The Book

POSTED ON December 14, 2015 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

It is with great joy, tremendous relief and a heart full of gratitude that I announce the release of my first book “Weirdo Simpatico: Little Stories for Short Attention Spans.” What started as a simple game of wordplay with friends on Facebook evolved into a true and goofy labor of love. This collection of bite-sized ... Read More

The Rob Brezsny Challenge

POSTED ON November 22, 2015 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

This is my latest horoscope from Rob Brezsny: Gemini (May 21-June 20) English model and TV personality Katie Price has been on the planet for just 37 years, but has already written four autobiographies. You Only Live Once, for instance, covers the action-packed time between 2008 and 2010, when she got divorced and then remarried ... Read More

Facebook & the Pulpit of Sanctimony

POSTED ON November 16, 2015 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 3 Comments
 

After last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris, people started modifying their Facebook profile pictures with an overlay of the French flag, ostensibly to show support for Paris and the people impacted by the violence that took place across the city.  As with anything on Facebook, this quickly became a trend. Shortly thereafter came a wave ... Read More

(Out of) Control

POSTED ON November 09, 2015 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 2 Comments
 

We have control over nothing. We know this. All we have is the illusion of control. We wrap it around us like a comforter. It’s a way we survive. But it’s still just an illusion. Take our children as an example. We can throw a kicking toddler over our shoulder and extricate his or her ... Read More
