The Flip-flop Discussion

I’m 32 and have a pretty good relationship with my mother.  Not every woman can say this, but I’m glad I can.  A lot of women say, “a daughter is a girl who eventually grows up to be her mom’s best friend,” but that’s not our relationship – its still clearly a mother/daughter relationship, just […]

The Persistence of Silly Thoughts

It’s funny what the mind latches on to when you’re experiencing a crisis.  Whether you’re watching it unfold  thousands of miles away or its right in your face, sometimes you’re mind grabs and holds the oddest details.

Stress Salad – Part II

Of course, the DJ thing isn’t enough – it just was enough for one blog post.  There has to be more the the universe decided I could juggle, right? I hurt my hand whitewater rafting on July 13th.  What I’ve done remains unclear, even after x-rays.  I have not injured the bones in my hand, at least. […]
