Laughter Lights the Way

As a way to avoid news about the Orange Oracle of Obfuscation in the White House, I’ve been watching reruns of Ellen. The sitcom, not the talk show. This is a 20-year-old show that makes me laugh out loud every morning. April will be the 20th anniversary of Ellen DeGeneres’s coming out on the cover […]

Bookstore Haze

To celebrate the release of Finding Ms. Write, the new anthology out from Ylva, I’m taking part in a “blog tour” and giveaway (check below for how to win a copy!). For my part, I thought I’d reminisce a bit. My second job after college was in a bookstore. The first was a pet store, […]

The wandering track of something clearly not a squirrel crisscrosses my yard. Cat? Fox? The snow is too deep to tell. Squirrel […]

HOSED

Lately, I’ve been lying awake at night listening to the sounds the house makes. Creaks and cracks from the cold winter outside. Drips from water leaking behind the gutter and down around the front door and into the basement. A mystery drip somewhere in (or just outside?) the bathroom. It’s deep winter, one of the […]

Inner Space

I recently read in Time magazine an interview with Sylvia Earle, the 79-year-old oceanographer. She makes the case for exploring and conserving our oceans. She doesn’t say we should do this instead of exploring space, but I will. I also recently read an essay in Discover magazine (from a couple years ago; I’m rather behind […]

Women’s Week 2014

I’ve had the good fortune to attend Women’s Week for several years now and have something to read each time. Sacchi Green started it all by organizing a reading for a group of us at Vixen. A dark, black room with harsh spotlights on us readers at the front. Vixen has since been transformed into […]
