It's All A Massive Coverup

I don't know about you, but I don't get enough sleep. I have good intentions, but what with one thing and another (work, dishes, laundry -- and let's be honest -- facebook and blogging), I'm lucky to get in bed before midnight -- and these kids of mine don't understand the concept of sleeping past dawn. ...more

Why Women Are Spending Less and Living More

  In my moms group recently, I asked the question, “What are you all doing to save money?” What I meant was, “How are you saving cash around town?” The answers I got clued me in to a core shift in our experience: the economy is changing not just the way we spend, but the way we live—that is, the way we enjoy life. ...more

Karma's Not the Bitch In Charge

My divorce took fourteen months. As fate would have it, that was also the exact length of time as my engagement. During that period, and even occasionally still today, my friends and family comforted me with the notion of karma.

At the time it was a comforting notion. ...more

The Living

With the recent deaths of some much-loved celebrities came the onslought of memorials. Be it a large memorial service or several small shrines in cities nationwide, admiration of these individuals has been publicly displayed. And all of this made me think. It made me think about how little we appreciate people when they are actually around to be touched by our love. ...more
