Dear Diary

Dear Diary:Let me begin with an apology. I know I’ve neglected you these last few years–since 1985, in fact, when I went to college, and life took off. During my freshman year, for example, I spent at least two weeks giggling over the name Balzac. Then I made some friends, and quite often we were compelled to dance to “Sweet Child of Mine” until 1 a.m. It left very little time for recording my thoughts, unfortunately. As it turns out, reflection isn’t a priority when one is counting down to Steak Night in the cafeteria....more

NaBloPoMo – BlogHer – March 2014Friday, March 28, 2014 How old were you when you started your first diary?~~~~~~~~I received my first diary when I was eight or nine years old. I wrote something in it every day. At first, I wrote little snippets about my day, maybe a poem here and there, and some days I wrote what I was feeling.My second diary was much like my first, but I found I needed more space to write in, so I went to notebooks. I filled many notebooks with poems, my feelings, and short stories or story ideas. My notebooks soon became boxes of notebooks....more

The Inner Journey Back To Jail

Hi. I am a 36 year old wife and mother of 3 . I am a native of Florida and I still live in the same town I was born in. That's right! A real Floridian. On January 23, 2007 my entire life, as I knew it had changed in an instant. My seemingly wonderful, coveted life came to a halt when I was arrested and facing 25 years in prison for drug trafficking and prescription fraud. This is a chronicle of my journey through drug addiction, incarceration and the search for happiness. I write this from the journals I kept. I am not sure why I am putting all my dirty laundry out in the open....more

Whether What's Private is Becoming Public

What's private and what's public? With the digital age and the speed of passing on information it's difficult to keep anything in the private realm. The ubiquitous paper trail is now a pathway created on the internet and available to anyone wise enough to figure out how to avail themselves of information. ...more

The 1970s teenager-my 1976 diary

Before I start, you need to know that I was in love with Rhett. I joined the church choir so I couldadmire him from afar. Little notes were passed round during the Nunc Dimittis, generally by a well-meaning friend, trying to encorage us to make a move on each other. He did eventually ask me out (I was 13, he was 18) but I was too shy to accept. Painfully shy in some respects; but a noisy and annoying teenager in others. Anyway, thepoor guy eventually asked my best friend out and, being a true Essex girl, she went....more
