Molting
This piece is almost four years old, but it feels appropriate to share today. All these years later, I still feel waves of grief from the losses I experienced in my 30s. Lately, I often feel like I'm on the precipice of something I can't put my finger on. S...

My favorite place
Many, many moons ago -- around the year 2000, I'd guess -- I was heavily involved in volunteer work for an organization that promoted women in the arts. I was attending/working their annual event, the National Women's Music Festival, which featured an open ...

Childhood memories
The family station wagon, a white Aspen with dark green vinyl seats. Sticking to the backseat in the summer. Finding a small gift on my seat before a road trip with the family, something to keep me occupied for at least a short while. Playing dress-up at th...

lot of health problems fol...

The longest minute of my life
Written November 18, 2015 Last Saturday, I was headed home after a long
day at work. It was around 4:00 p.m. and I just wanted to get home, change
clothes, eat something, nap, whatever. I’d been thinking about it most of the
day. About five minutes from arr...

My sign
