I Don't Mean To Scare You

There have been so many blog posts I have started to write in my head and just haven’t. It’s so ironic that I started this blog in an effort to de-stigmatize mental illness, and then just couldn’t really get into the thick of things once my mental illness had me by the throat. I was... Read more »

I've Forgotten

I’ve forgotten how to write. I’ve forgotten how to do most everything, it seems like. It feels like. My vagina bones hurt — I’m decidedly unforgetting how to ride my bike, and in true alcoholic fashion, I went balls out and rode waaayy too far the first day. Oh well. I got in a fight... Read more »

Happy Birthday, Dad

Happy Birthday, Dad
Born January 25, 1947, my father would have been 68 today. Time is definitely relative, as it seems entirely young to die in your early 70s at this point, when growing up, dying in your 70s seemed perfectly right and normal. A lot of that has to do with advancements in modern medicine and technology... Read more »

The State of the Union

Dad. You didn’t watch this¹ tonight. You didn’t listen to Chris Matthews and The Rachel Maddow Show and whoever else is on MSNBC. You didn’t listen to the endless chatter and patter and clatter that is the 24 hour news cycle, driving me crazy. At least the blessing was at least you listened to the... Read more »

No Indictment. No Justice For Michael Brown. No Words.

I am so angry. Sad. No, furious. I thought maybe, maybe they would at least let this go to trial. But after the first ten words out of the prosecutor’s mouth (Was he? He sounded like a defense lawyer for Darren Wilson, honestly.) I knew. No. This wasn’t going to go the right way. And... Read more »

I Think The Worst Is Over

So, I’m not wearing my father’s legit Navy peacoat from 1965. I stopped a couple of days ago and switched to this Guatemalan number I bought from two guys selling them out of a bag on Monroe/Wells in 1997. A slight upgrade, but not much. What matters to me is that it’s not my “winter... Read more »
