I don't sleep solidly at night, so my dark hours find me keeping up with news, reading recaps of shows I watch, and falling down rabbit holes of topics about which I wish to learn more. As such, should news... Continue reading

I had spent yesterday continuing to recuperate, cleaning, chatting with my kids, doing laundry, petting my cats, and writing about the murderer from last week's mass shooting in Georgia. So as I had been writing, I had not been watching... Continue reading

So, I admit to being well over a decade late to the party, but I have been binging Grey's Anatomy for two solid months now. Better late than never, as they say. Great drama, cool medical anomalies, strong characters, plenty... Continue reading

Early this morning, my husband received his first vaccine shot. And he was glad. He didn't complain about the time I was able to grab for him. He needed no prodding when his age group opened up. No convincing that... Continue reading

It was right about this time last year when the world went to shit. (Sorry, with COVID, I dispense with the pleasantries.) My husband and I had just returned from a wonderful trip back to Kauai and he was ready... Continue reading

Food. We cannot exist without it, yet so many are pushed to the very edge of our human existence by hunger, by the threat of hunger. I have taken a break from writing for a couple weeks now. My mind... Continue reading

I wrote the following piece back in 2014. My beloved theater "coach", Carol, contained in the lines below, passed away earlier this week. I have often written about how a death leaves a hole in your universe. How, while we... Continue reading

Grocery store shelves are empty. Restocking cannot happen because trucks cannot navigate the frozen roads. Homes have been without heat for up to five days (my daughter's included). Power still eludes millions and if it comes on, there is no... Continue reading

Back in 1992, we all felt our hearts race as that pivotal A Few Good Men line rang out like thunder from Jack Nicholson's Colonel Nathan Jessup to Tom Cruise's military lawyer Daniel Kaffee. "You can't handle the truth!" That... Continue reading

The outcome was not a surprise. It was an absolute, vile, foregone conclusion. The rancid bag of orange bile who incited an insurrection, who cheered the terrorists on, who refused to call off his dogs, who masturbated while watching the... Continue reading

It should be mandatory viewing. It should be. The impeachment hearings should be standing room only, hear-a-pin-drop, hanging-on-every-word viewing for every citizen of this country. Hell, of this world. Yes, world. The world has been held hostage by the Trump... Continue reading

It has been roughly 24 hours since we witnessed an assault on the highest halls of our democracy. 24 hours to process what happened. 24 hours to read eyewitness media accounts. 24 hours to see fully via video and photos... Continue reading
