car conversations

February 24, 2015


One of the reasons I opted for a car without a DVD player or TV screens on the headrests is because I value our car conversations, the ones we wouldn’t have if my beans were being carted off to karate lessons after school, wearing headphones, engrossed in a movie on demand. Conversations like this one, […]

New York Fashion Week, Spring 2014 Collection

Lately I might not know if I’m coming or going, but I know this much: I’m going to Fashion Week, attending a few shows and slipping backstage to check out the makeup and beauty trends. That’s right.

I‘ve been eating my feelings lately, especially at night. Stress eating, depressed eating, eating to comfort, eating to have something to look forward to, same old thing as it ever was.

When I worked in advertising, I was especially bothered by emails suggesting my calendar be blocked off for a “postmortem.” After a campaign or new business pitch, we’d gather in a conference room to discuss the breakdown of communication, the toes stepped upon, everything that went wrong.

Comments Off on missed opportunities

My house is dark and cold, without a phone signal. Candles, scented in flavors of how a pumpkin should smell. There is nothing to do without internet, without music, without movies or TV. We are just there, left with ourselves, cold, in sweats, food just hanging out in our dark fridge, trees hanging out in […]

what to expect, when you expect a hurricane

October 29, 2012


People expect me to be writing. “Great day to write, no excuses.” You lose power, you’ve still got a legal pad and pencil, a sharpener from your makeup bag. In reality though, it’s a great time to get full. To eat all your emergency supplies before you’ve even lost power. You cook up your whole […]
