Stuck in the Muck

My head feels gooey and gloppy inside – like all my thoughts which were previously spinning have gotten caught up in a huge mud bath, and now they can barely move. I have an annoying amount of congestion – just enough to make my glands tender and my ears hurt a little. I’m sneezing a lot. Whenever I start to feel less than perky, … Read More Stuck in the Muck

Learning to Live in Limbo

“Worlds Fair” by Esao Andrews If the Universe has been trying to teach me lessons in my adulthood, the biggest one is probably about how to live peacefully in the present moment without knowing all the answers of tomorrow. My adult life has been filled with crazy situations where I didn’t know what was going on and felt frozen – incapable of moving until … Read More Learning to Live in Limbo

Lock Your Doors and Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

My middle child is very safety-conscious. She recently put this sign on the inside of our front door. My 6-year-old son saw it and decided to add his two cents at the bottom. It says, “I don’t know if this is true” and he signed his name underneath that. I’m so proud of both of them, for completely different reasons. Babies are wonderful, sweet-smelling … Read More Lock Your Doors and Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

Dream a Dream, then Stand Back and Watch the Show

I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. – Henry David Thoreau You really aren’t going to believe this one – it’s a made-for-Oprah story that completely supports the idea that “what you think about, you bring about.” I … Read More Dream a Dream, then Stand Back and Watch the Show

Angry Letter to Addicts

I really don’t know where this letter came from, but it welled up inside of me instantly this afternoon, after I received some ill-timed news indirectly from my addicted landlord. I try to hate the disease, not the person, but today, I am fighting… Dear Junkies and Drunks, If you had any idea how your insane, unpredictable behavior affected the rest of us, maybe … Read More Angry Letter to Addicts


My “o” is fixed; I replaced the keyboard myself. I spent a glorious day in Manhattan yesterday. I saw Mr. Nice Guy. I finished up my third freelance writing job and I’m interviewing for a fourth. Oh, and… I got the job – the full-time position in Princeton.I just have to say thank you to a few people: To the Universe, for its infinite … Read More Status

My "o" is Broken

I broke my “o” from using it too much, I guess. The letter wore off the “e” months ago, and the “n” is almost gone, too. But the “o” just snapped right off today. The tiny tabs that held it in place are gone, and it’s hopeless. Dell says they are going to replace the entire keyboard. The plastic piece probably costs less than … Read More My "o" is Broken
