It was the first night I slept alone in our new house. We moved recently. The kids are in the same school district but will attend a new elementary school. On Monday night, Phil’s parents took the kids, and after visiting Phil, I returned to an empty house, in a new neighborhood. I bolted the […]

Oh, the hell. I know people read books and pin quotes of inspiration about loving ourselves, as we are, because let’s face it, hating ourselves hasn’t served us well all these years. So, fine. I love myself and my sexy curves, but I hate shopping for clothes who haven’t gotten the memo.

I just had a mini-moment. I won’t call it an epiphany because I don’t know that I’ll remember the moment years from now, with remarkable accuracy—as you’re able to do with true epiphanies—able to tell you what I was wearing (Phil’s cableknit cashmere sweater, waffle weave sweatpants, horn-rimmed glasses), or if I was on my […]

Q*bert Video Game

Maybe it was a thing of the 80s, or maybe it’s just a teen thing, or a camp thing, a boy girl, summer love thing, but for me, early love—not to be trivialized—can actually be heard on a mixtape. Like scent and its ability to transport us across time and fields, to a moment when […]
