  • throwback thursday: a truth universally acknowledged

    this was originally posted august thirty-first, eight years ago. the sweatshirt in the photo below is the same one i’m wearing in that mug of me in the sidebar. it’s not nearly as baggy as it used to be. it had been my favorite, and then it wasn’t, but after some time passed, i can […]

  • a letter to my forty-four-year-old self

  • ten things i like about myself

    one. my voice. many, many days over my forty years or so, it has been the one that thing that has kept me sane. i’ll sing almost anywhere. when i was little, i’d sing on the bus on the way to school. as an adult, i’ll sing while i’m shopping, while i’m working, while i’m walking. […]

    today, i’d like to introduce to you a fellow blogger named tina, and she’s been a loyal picky reader for a very long time. what i love best about her is she gives some great insight, some wonderful perspective. she writes some pretty nifty stuff… Maybe you’ve been wondering about that badge in the sidebar […]
