“Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. *There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*– they are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind…” These are supposed to be for my eyes only, … More Morning Pages 01
What better day to dust off the old blog and write a post than a rainy January afternoon? So much is happening that is new, different, exciting, and making me so unbelievably happy that I’m almost afraid to express joy about it since, given my track record, when I do, something bad happens.

Greg and I celebrated our four year anniversary on Tuesday by going to the local estate/antique shop and “thrifting” for a new side table and eating dinner at Café Alsace—the restaurant he took me to the night he proposed. It was a perfect romantic, low-key celebration. That seems to be more our style as of late, which is … More I love me some October
I didn’t realize I would feel this depressed. I am annoyed with life. I am annoyed with myself. I want to punch everyone in sight. I want to hug everyone in sight. I laugh for no reason and then, suddenly, I feel like my life is over and I sob and hug myself in desperation…because … More The Break-Up
“Because for some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you.
