Skin Sack and Poop Factory

What a title.  Bear with me. In a conversation with my boyfriend some weeks back, the idea of self-image came up.  I divulged that when I think of myself as a physical being, the first thing that comes to mind

Functionally Funked

One of the best decisions I ever made in my adult life was to spend a year getting weekly therapy.  At the time, I felt trapped, hopeless, alone, and desperate – in a way that I’d felt many times in

Luke Sleepwalker

When I was a kid, I used to sleepwalk.  Like a champ.  Out the door, down the stairs, through the hall, round the kitchen, down another hall and wind up waking up in the room with my parents watching Nick

Fake Geeks on the Internet

First, they came for the Fake Geek Girls. A crazy uproar on the internet about girls “pretending” to like “geeky things” “for the attention.”  So many air-quotes, I may have accidentally rerouted planes from JFK.  And that’s because I have

A Helping Hand

New Yorkers get a bad rep for being “rude” all the time.  You say “rude,” I think you mean “fast.”  Yes, we move very quickly and don’t take kindly to things/people/strollers that happen to be in our way. But ask

Baggage Claim

As I get older I talk less and less. ….about my baggage. There is some baggage that’s easy to claim.  The nice stuff.  The baggage where we triumph, the baggage where we learn to become the hero.  That nice, rolling

Mega-Throwback Thursday!!!

When you visit the family, and the boxed wine gets flowing, eventually the photo albums creep out from their hiding place.  What results then is a firestorm of Instagramming photos from decades ago!  Awww!  So cute, I was!  This is

Sick Thoughts

Everyone tells me, “You push yourself too hard,” as if that’s supposed to be negative!  In my opinion, I should push harder.  I’m proud of pushing hard!  Pushing hard is a badge of honor! Until it catches up to you.
