The Greatest Adventure

I mentioned in my previous post, Wherever You Go, You Take Yourself With You, that my friend Alanna and I had started doing some mini-writing workshops to help get our creative juices flowing, and I thought I’d share another product of one of our sessions on the blog. This one was in response to the... Continue Reading →

Do You Want to Go Back to Eighth Grade?

Do you remember what middle school was like? Or maybe you’re right now in the painful throes of it. For me, eighth grade was 15 years ago. It both feels like forever ago, but also like the awkwardness and embarrassment and true angst I experienced is buried just underneath the surface of my adult life.... Continue Reading →

Reminders

A year ago this week I was nestled on the edge of the Appalachian mountains just north of Stanardsville, VA in a luxury yurt trying to unplug from the world and single-handedly repair whatever had gone wrong in my relationship with my ex. I wrote in my journal every day that week, analyzing his moods... Continue Reading →

Is This My Love Story?

This Grey’s Anatomy tribute to Lexie and Mark popped up on my Facebook timeline this morning, and because I’m a sucker for tragic love stories, I watched it.

Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.”... Continue Reading →

I Didn’t Expect The Loneliness

After the break-up, I expected the grief. At this point, I’m well acquainted with the stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I know they’re not some linear timeline, but instead a twisting cycle that can seemingly have no end, until suddenly, it doesn’t hurt so much anymore. I expected this, and prepared for it....

In The Blood

Have you ever looked at your blood under a microscope? What do you imagine you’d find there? All your little red blood cells whizzing around like an episode of “The Magic School Bus?” While it wasn’t quite a Ms. Frizzle-worthy magical experience, I do feel like I learned quite a lot from seeing the life-giving...
