When Things Get Bleak

POSTED ON December 28, 2016 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 2 Comments
 

Things are rather heavy these days. There’s a pall draping our collective psyche. I can see and feel it everywhere: on social media, in the weary faces of both loved ones and strangers, in the low vibration that moans just beneath the surface of everything. We’re despondent still over a looming Trump presidency and all ... Read More

So Now What?

At this point, the shock has worn off. We’ve crawled out from the rubble of our collective disbelief and disappointment and are regaining our equilibrium, uneasy as it may be. We’re slowly squaring with the ice cold reality that Donald Trump – a deranged, unqualified and dangerously erratic narcissist –is the president elect and, even ... Read More

Get Down with the Down Ticket

There is probably nothing I can say about the unhinged narcissistic man-toddler that is the GOP candidate for president that hasn’t already been said. OK, maybe there’s one thing: If said man-toddler even thinks about grabbing my genitalia, I’ll give him a swift knee to the nuts and as hard a right hook as I can ... Read More

The Annoying Goo of Inertia

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. The last thing I put up was in July and was about my young nomad taking off again. Prior to that, I wrote a post about a Yayoi Kusama exhibit I’d recently seen in Houston. That was back in June. The “Out to Lunch” sign has ... Read More

Mom of a Nomad. Round Two.

As he put a few remaining things into his backpack and took care of a couple last minute tasks, like vacuuming his room and boxing up his computer, it took everything I had to keep from crying. Trying not to cry takes enormous effort. It’s like wrestling a bear or beating back a wildfire. My ... Read More

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 | One 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

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

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 ...
