I don't know about you, but I'm scared, angry and overwhelmed with what is happening and how quickly it is happening in our country. I'm also exhausted. From marching, calling my senators and yours, emailing, writing letters, reading the latest atrocity committed by the president and talking about it with friends and family.   But… Read More

It was 1992. I was 23 year olds. I had moved from San Diego to New York City a few months before. The day was bright and cold, particularly to this California girl. I had just secured a job after months of searching and had made a few friends. I was crossing a busy street… Read More

Reading List

I have devoured 9 books in the last 3 weeks. Absolutely loved each one. Some I read in one day, others in two days. They were too good to put down. (Clearly, I have way too much time on my hands and must get full-time employment. Until that happens, I'm taking advantage of the free… Read More

I Feel Fine

I am 12 days into 30 days of only eating whole foods and I feel AMAZING! I'm sleeping so much better. A full 8 hours a night and I wake up feeling good. Don't misunderstand, I am not now suddenly a morning person who is all cheery and annoying at 7AM. But I am a… Read More

No Peace, No Piece

It's been brought to my attention that I am living a life free of vice. How is this possible? Well, while on Whole30 I am not drinking alcohol (or wine or beer or cider, or . . .) and I'm not having any sort of sex of any kind. Well, I'm practicing self love on… Read More

An Open Letter to 2016

2016, You've cracked my heart wide open and into a million shards. You took Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen and now George Michael. How could you?   You made me see the people of my country are full of hate, fear and self-loathing. You taught me that money and manipulation decide political races. The election is… Read More

7. Anyone can run a 5k If by run you mean walk/jog real slllllooooooow. The girls and I participated in the Color Run in Tacoma this year. For some reason it's a lot of fun to run down city streets when people are throwing colored talc on you. First of all, wondering what color is… Read More

First of all, I'm grateful and delighted that more than two of you are still following this blog that I'd basically abandoned. Thanks for hanging around (There were 93 of you, to be exact, but who's counting?). Next, I had issues with my website yesterday and then again today. I'm insecure so I'm sorta-kinda convinced… Read More
