All the things

To pick up and start saying, again, “It’s been so long since I wrote…!” would do very little but state the obvious and make me feel sheepish even to be updating again. I spent some time, before writing this, updating the site’s appearance. It had literally not been updated since I set up the site […]

Dear You, Dear Me, Dear November

Dear universe, dear everyone, dear you: No. Don’t fret. Never fear. I am NOT participating in National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) again, and not just because its cute little alias is an unpronounceable garble. First of all, it’s already November 3. Two days ago, on November 1, I told a room full of people that […]

The Last College Confession: Summer, 1997

Well hello there! 2015 has been just a downright terrible year for blogging. But it was to good purpose: the first half of 2015 was pretty much eaten up by completing my long-unfinished, long-dormant college degree. With final grades submitted and an “A+” (they give pluses now?!) in my last class, at this point I […]

Sinistral

Every month at my church, my friend Laura and I host a “Sharing Our Stories” evening with a new theme each month, which we attempt – with varying levels of success – to bring to bear on the issue of Reproductive Justice. We met on on Friday, the 20th this month, just last night. The […]

This Year

MY BRAIN: Come on! It’s the 10th of February, we should start working on our annual Valentine’s Day post! MY HEART: I don’t wanna. MY BRAIN: Oh come on. This is a tradition, now. MY HEART: No one cares. MY BRAIN: Now you’re just being purposefully defeatist. You have been doing this since 2008, you […]

The blessing of a stranger

It didn’t take me long, once I moved to Silver Spring, to settle into a new morning walk routine. I change it up once in a while, but I tend to head into downtown more or less via the Whole Foods, then walk over to the Cameron/Spring St. garage, where I run/walk up the ramps, […]

The Year in Selfies

On January 7, 2014 I went ahead and posted a selfie as part of the “#365feministselfie” project. I hadn’t started on the first. I knew I wouldn’t do it every day. But the more I thought about it the more I thought I’d like to give it a try. Veronica Arreola kicked it off on […]

Jingle bell cat

It’s been an appallingly long time since I updated the blog. Sure, I moved. Sure, I had a semester of work to finish. Sure, the holidays. Sure…hey, I guess that’s why I haven’t updated. Today my friend Laura and I were asked to share reflections on the theme of “bells” – she shared hers on […]
