What's Your Story?

I finished up a journal this morning. Such a great feeling — filling up the pages of a blank book, what an accomplishment! And I get to start a fresh new journal tomorrow! This speaks directly to my inner 4th grader. Today, as then, I love "school supplies" almost as m...

When I left my corporate job a year and a half ago, I set myself up in a co-working space uptown thinking it'll be the perfect place to write and work on my plans for world domination. The decor is straight out of a West Elm catalogue (I ain’t mad at that) and they hav...

As a kid I went through a serious James Bond phase, devouring Ian Fleming's books and seeing every movie I could get on VHS. I’m not sure I got through all of them, but I gave it a solid effort. I loved the salacious romance subplots (even though I barely understood th...

I’ve had a corporate job of one kind or another since moving to NYC in 1995. Back then, I called them “Survival Jobs” or, more frequently, "Day Jobs."  As if I had some spectacular artist-life during the evening hours. I didn’t - but I sure thought about it a lot.

It’s Mother’s Day and I’ve been staying off the internet. I don’t begrudge others the happiness in celebrating their moms but I’m still raw from losing mine even two years later. At first, I’d dread specific days - Mother’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, her birthday, my birt...

I was reminded recently of this quote: "Not all who wander are lost.” I think that’s true. But then again, sometimes you get lost. Literally. Like, really I have no idea where I am or how to get home lost. I’m great at this. It’s a core strength. I started young and ke...
