If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use..”

    Changing Directions

    Last night I was at dinner with a friend who is planning to move back to her hometown. She was telling me how she doesn’t really want to live there, but she’s already told her family, so she kinda has to go now as not to disappoint. She must have seen a look on my face, because she stopped mid-s […]

    Life is good

    Ten years ago, today, I did something wild and crazy. I married my man.This is how old we were. 
    Life is good.

    My man is a man of action

    This is true in many ways, but particularly in our relationship.
    So am I. Well, not a man of action, but you know what I mean. But since it’s easier to spot things in other people, than in ourselves sometimes, I’m gonna talk about him for now.

    the surfers and the people talking on their phones
    and my tired body when I got home
    Same goes for how you live yo […]

    Loving someone when all you want to do is slam the door (to your heart) in their face

    I am a huge fan of David Deida, and this morning a quote of his popped up on my FB feed.
    “Within a relationship, your responsibility is stated as ‘I am not going to retract my heart from you, even if you’re being an asshole.’”
    Yes! It’s so true!
    In my wild and amazing, 15-year, roller-co […]

    Being feminine does not (necessarily) mean wrapping yourself in saran wrap

    A friend mentioned the other day that when she was young, they still ran advice columns in the newspaper on how to ‘be feminine’. She remembered one such article suggesting that wives open the door for their husbands returning home from work wrapped in nothing but saran wrap. She said that prett […]
