A New Tattoo: On The Art of Healing

It’s been a week since I had my 3 new (well, 2 new and a cover-up) tattoos done , and I’ve had a new observation. As I’ve watched my tattoos heal, I realize how much the process reflects not just the symbols I’ve inked into my body, but also how growth happens in life. Tattoos are art, and I believe there is an art in healing, too....more
Your tattoo is beautiful. And this post is lovely. more

Goodbye Glasses! I Had Laser Eye Surgery

One month ago, I did something I thought that I would never, ever do -- I let a doctor shoot lasers into my eyes. Up to and during my laser eye surgery, it was scary and I questioned my sanity. A month out, I can tell you that I believe it was worth it and I don't regret it. Not even a little bit. I've been asked lots of questions by friends and family over the last few months. I thought I'd try to round up those questions into one post. Here it goes. Why did you get laser eye surgery?...more

Precious Poisons

 At first glance, my grandfather still looked strong and healthy. He was smiling and sitting on his porch enjoying the warm air. Then he started coughing. I noticed the way he wheezed and how his head pulled back with every intake of breath. A month later, he succumbed to the lung cancer....more

Male CEO Steps Down Because Men Care About Their Families Too

Upon reading that Max Schireson, CEO of MongoDB stepped down to "spend more time with his kids," I sent my husband a text message at work. "Question," was how I started off. You know, that one thing that men always want to hear from their female partners. "Sup," he succinctly replied. "Have you ever been asked how you manage your career as a firefighter with your family life?" I tried to imagine the look on his face, but he immediately started typing his reply. ...more
