How?

How does anyone begin to find the chutzpah they need to do the thing(s) that need(s) to be done? Where does the feeling self-confidence come from when everything has been ground down to a pulp? Where does self-worth come from when the original source has been cut-off? I don’t know who I am right now ..read more

My usual summer routine of being thoroughly productive one day and then completely not the next is in full-swing, so to speak. However, the compounded questions of Who am I? What do I want? What do I see myself doing or being? …. They’re all loud and unnervingly empty at the moment. Devoid of answers ..read more

Lightning strike. And then the air around that bolt expaaaaaands. There’s room. And space. And that’s what I keep catching myself in. Those little moments. Quick seconds of time…. expaaaaaanded. And do you know what I’m doing in those hidden-now-revealed moments? I’m pouring water into a bottle and putting it in the fridge for my ..read more

The oddest feelings come over me during the days. I have so many questions I want answered and so many possibilities floating just out in front of me, unclear and unknown. I don’t know if it’s out of self-preservation or avoidance or my internal self knowing what I need right now in this moment, but ..read more

Hey, there. I’ve lost a lot of myself over the past two years, and during the past few months especially. I’ve been knocked down and smashed to bits by gaslighting-in-the-guise-of-private-organization-HR. I’m hurt and sad and damaged and pissed off. On top of just the basic mind-fuckery of it all, I’m making a career change after ..read more

Hey, Friends. This is a free-write I did for some equity and diversity training this past week. It was inspired by Jamaica Kincaid’s piece entitled “Girl.” I highly encourage you to read it. This is all stream-of-consciousness. No real edits or changes since I wrote it. Caroline’s hair is so curly. Alex & Jonah and all the boys say ..read more

Hey, All.* I am doing stuff. And doing stuff feels good. Sometimes I sit way back and hold my breath and shut my eyes and pretend the world can’t see me while I process and worry and anxietitze over beginning or starting something. Doesn’t matter what the ‘it’ is, I just worry and fret and ..read more

Heya. *smile* ’tis me. Still here, and so are those monsters. Some in global pandemic form, while others are a bit more personal and catered to their host. As a teacher I’ve been reverberating with this past year o challenges and working to just put my feet on the round. I am looking to recenter ..read more

Heya, Friends.* Here’s my semi-somewhat-every-once-in-awhile check-in to say I’m still here. Thought about sobriety quite a lot the past few months, considering the possibility of scrapping it and being frustrated that I didn’t have an outlet to just let go. I was feeling kind of low and, of course as is usually always the case ..read more

They just keep showin’ up, don’t they? *smile* I guess they’re just a normal part – and will forever be a part – of being Human. You kick one of their asses, and then, whoop! Another ass appears. Wahwah. This one, well, I’ve probably talked about it before, and it will probably not come as ..read more
