    A Quick Tip For Purging Clutter

    09.01.2015 / OTHER

    I am continually shying away from sharing Hows. I don’t know, it just seems like my favorite advice has always been to throw caution to the wind and dig your own ditch. But here’s a story: I dog-sat for my mother-in-law this weekend. She is a lovely tiny Oreo-spotted dog that doesn’t bark, a rare breed if ever there was one. I think she is part cat, perhaps, but still. It was an adventure. I am pretending that Bernie and …

    A Book

    08.26.2015 / WORK

    Well, I’m writing a book. I’ve been writing it for, oh, five months, and I have nearly one month to go, and whoa, that is soon, isn’t it? I will not stop blogging. Writing in these wee hours of the morning is the best thing for me, it is just the best thing for me. It is personal, and therapeutic, and enjoyable, and it is hard, yes, but in the good way of hard, like when you swallow a big …

    Things I Keep Forgetting

    08.24.2015 / OTHER

    I don’t know; it’s just that I should probably tape it all to my fridge: When you feel hungry, but nothing sounds good, you’re actually just thirsty. Drink some water, lady. Good gracious. Everyone yells. There is grace for today. Do not order the jeans online. They will not fit, and jeans are not on your list of Things You Actually Need. Stop it. A quick listen of Don’t Let The Sun Go Down (George Michael and Elton John only, …

    All Of It

    08.20.2015 / LIFE

    Well, we’re finding a rhythm, that’s all. Summer is melting away as we’re welcoming fall and this is the time of year I run around the house furiously sharpening pencils and cooking with cinnamon. I like summer, I like the heat, and yet, the moment I spot a yellowing leaf, any twitch left in my hand from an anxious season of wringing just kind of disappears. While we were in Ecuador, the tomatoes died. We returned home after a red-eye …

    Bee. Last week, you played with Barnacles, Peso, Shellington, Kwazii, Dashy and Trick (whom I am mispronouncing, you tell me). They are your friends in Ecuador, and they are found in the treetops, but sometimes they move to the fish pond and you must call them each, one by one, until they float to the surface and you all run together to find the alpacas for your morning riding session. They do not like tacos for dinner, they want their …

    On Nourishment

    08.13.2015 / OTHER

    A few years ago, Ken and I hosted our family Christmas. We had 16 mouths to feed and a handful of picky kids, so the menu chose us: a pasta bar. To the voices of Bing Crosby and David Bowie, we stir butter noodles and simmer heirloom tomatoes and begin to prep the star of the show: a homemade alfredo sauce I’d dogeared months before. Bee crawls underfoot as I consult the recipe. Ken rummages through the fridge for our …
