everybody’s gotta have a thing

My thing’s sound effects. Here’s a T-Rex, NNNRRRRWWWWR. In case you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, (a: how freakin’ young are you? and b:), here. TV commercials in the 90’s were just so much better. And anyway, anybody that knows me knows my thing is yoga. Duh. It’s bordering on obsessive, the…… Continue reading everybody’s gotta have a thing

happy calm magic things

Sometimes I forget how much I love yoga. Sometimes life is busy, and the weather is crappy, and pajamas feel like the only acceptable post-work attire. Sometimes leaving the house and venturing out into the world for a yoga class feels like the last thing you want to do after a long day at work.…… Continue reading happy calm magic things

miss you, bee

For a long time after Jess died, I was angry. I guess in some ways, it’s normal to be angry when someone you love dies. It’s unfair for someone so young to die. She had struggled and conquered so much, and had so much life left to live, and then, suddenly, this. A freak accident,…… Continue reading miss you, bee

But strangely, I’m feeling more relaxed and at ease than I have in months. Just walking out of…… Continue reading sah wah dee khaa from thailand!

awful, shitty, really bad luck – and gratitude.

Do you ever have one of those weeks that make you wonder what the hell you ever did to be on the receiving end of such bad karma? When the whole universe seems like it’s conspired against you? When so many things have gone wrong that you’re at the crazy-stressed “hahahahaha-at-least-things-can’t-get-any-worse” stage of despair? Yeah?…… Continue reading awful, shitty, really bad luck – and gratitude.

the journey, one year in

Ah, the Facebook “On This Day” feature. Most days, it’s a reminder of what an embarrassing human I can be – poorly-edited selfies, links to terribly angsty music videos, ridiculous status updates about god knows what. (I always know it’s gonna be cringe-worthy, why do I feel the need to look?!) But this week I…… Continue reading the journey, one year in
