Music, for me, makes all the difference in my ability to get into the emotion of what I am writing. (I'm even considering making a suggested playlist for each chapter in the book I'm currently writing). This year, I've been able to compile my go-to music fo...

Best Books of 2018
I'm feeling inspired to share some of my "Best Ofs" for this past year. I'll start with books! The fiction novel,  Freshwater by debut author Akwaeke Emezi was such a thrilling story and imaginative concept, delightfully disorienting. What if several gods t...

The lasts
Today is June 8. On this day last year, I sat at this very table in this very coffee shop. I awaited Kelly, who texted me 20 minutes earlier, "Hi you. Any chance you're free right now? I've just finished at the Tummy Temple and have an hour until I see Ayle...

Frida and field trips
Last night, I lost it. Like properly. Like big, ugly tears. I couldn't see and I couldn't stop. Last week, just a few minutes before leaving my therapy session, I lost it. Less ugly - there was someone watching, after all. But no less big and broken. I brok...

Where she lives now.
I feel myself coming back to life, if that's what you want to call it. Life. Seems like a massive stretch. I resist and resent it. I don't want to start putting the broken pieces back together When your physical form isn't one of those pieces. I'd rather st...
