A past Valentine’s Day revisited

February 14, 2015


Valentine’s Day. There’s no escaping it. The really brilliant thing about February 14 is February 15th, when you can load up on chocolate at 50% off! My larder will be filled tomorrow.

It makes you look vulnerable. You’re even more sexy when you’re vulnerable.” It took six or seven years after my relationship […]

Halloween one

October 31, 2013


“You have forever ruined mermaids for me.” One Friday morning in late October of 2008, I got a completely unexpected text from DK. (Neither of us were big texters then; we very rarely exchanged them. More’s the pity we didn’t keep it at that in the following years.) He would be finishing up an appointment […]

October 18, 2013


I came perilously close last night to posting an entry that would be more at home in my private journal. I seem to be at a crossroads or pivotal point or, more likely, I’m just stuck in the mud. With that in mind, I’ve decided to post both versions of what I wrote last night […]
