"This is the fight that will teach me that my shadow is not bigger than my light."
Dear Parent: This is the letter I wish I could write. This fight we are in right now. I need it. I need this fight. I can’t tell you this because I don’t have the language for it and it wouldn’t make sense anyway. But I need this fight. Badly. I need to hate you right now and I need you to survive it. I need you to survive my hating you and you hating me. I need this fight even though I hate it too. It doesn’t matter what this fi...

I'm certainly no bastion of fashion. Yet here I provide you with a handy guide for what not to wear at any age, particularly after your parents stop dressing you. This guide will apply to you regardless of your body shape, gender, ethnicity, age, ability level, or education.

This is VERY cool.

Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky became photographically renowned in Russia for a color portrait of Tolstoy. It was this fame that brought him to Tsar Nicholas II.

What really bothers me about these 'introductory' fields in social networks is that they in no way represent the truly awkward aspects of actually being introduced to someone, or of introducing yourself. So if you could just picture me smiling nervously (I know you might not actually know what I look like; make up the best mental image you can of someone nearing their forties, with a fairly sedentary lifestyle, who wears spectacles and has a bit of a cleft chin) and laughing too loud, that would be grand.

You might want to throw in the obligatory shuffling from foot to foot, and the self-conscious admission that yes, being a writer is cool, and no, I've not published a book yet, but yes, I've been published, and yes, I *am* that sort of editor - the kind who corrects restaurant menus, and no, I haven't a dog, but I have a stupid cat, and yes, I have children (two; they're boys), and that I live in Happy Hollow in the Qu'Appelle Valley in Saskatchewan, and that I work with book publishers.

And then, when there's nothing left to seem interesting enough to talk about, pretend I've just asked you how you are and what you do and whether you have a family and stupid cats. Then, there would be the first Awkward Silence of our acquaintance. 

I'm okay with Awkward Silences, though.
