New Things
I have locked myself out of my office twice this week, and it's only Tuesday. Every bad mood can be turned around with a little Leather and Lace. I met one of my biggest goals for the year this month and I'm really proud of myself. There's a farmer's market...

Like Old Friends
Rereading a favorite book feels like an encounter with an old friend. You run into each other (in the library of all places!) and immediately make plans together. And at some point in the middle, you find yourself so so grateful for the friendship. For the ...

Memorial Day
In Flanders Fields by John McCrae In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead; short days ago We lived, fe...

Sharing Enthusiasms
There is something wholly satisfying about sharing something I love with someone else. To show them something that means the world to me, and that somehow makes me love it more. A few years ago, I read a biography of Vincent Van Gogh, in which the authors w...

A Normal Amount
I'm starting to lose some of my enthusiasm. Actually, no. I'm starting to be more selective about my enthusiasm. I am, for the first time, learning to like things a normal amount. Not obsessed, not a fanatic, but somewhat interested. Liking it and then movi...

Top of the Stairs
There's a space at the top of a stairwell in the building where I work. It leads out the roof, but you can't go on the roof. I call it the widow's walk even though it's not a widow's walk. The floor is seven paces by three and the floors haven't been cleane...

Life Lately 4.4.18
I'm still writing 2017 on everything even though it's April. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is now on Amazon and I'm very happy about that. I stumbled on this article about a well-dressed man and it's all I think about when I get dressed in the morning. I'm beyond...

Nostalgia
There is something very revealing about remembering things I used to love. I stumbled this week on a musical I was obsessed with in 2011. I fell into a black hole of YouTube videos that I had remember watching over and over again during my second year of co...

Life Lately 2.4.18
A couple of weeks ago, I had my haircut for the first time in over a year and I feel like a new woman and more like myself at the same time. I keep re-listening to  The 36 Questions  podcast musical over and over again. I bought a garlic press and it makes ...

Ten Things
1. I hate straight leg jeans. Hate them, and no amount of scrolling through Instagram is going to convince me that they would look good on me. I don't care if they're "out" you can pry my skinny jeans from my cold dead fingers. 2. My parents got me a waffle...
