Raging against the Dying of… Humanity

First, I am angry. Then, I am sad. Eventually, I make my way back to angry again and I sit there, soaking in the sweat of my disappointment and rage. How did we get here? As a country. How? It’s not just about “respecting the flag” or “locker room talk” or Hollywood moguls and presidential […]

Lately.

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time feeling like I’m standing inside a glass, soundproof box.  I’m stuck and I’m silenced, and I don’t like either. All my life, I’ve felt like I had something to say. All my life I’ve felt like if I could just find the time to sit down and […]

Never Doubt That One Life Can Make a Difference

On Friday, I picked J up early for a trip to the doctor then took him back to work with me for the afternoon.  When the news came in about what happened in Connecticut, he was firmly ensconced in my lap, watching videos on the iPod while I sobbed quietly onto my keyboard. All day, […]

When Hope Dies

We’ve moved into casual conversation land.  I don’t know when it happened or how I feel about it but yesterday Ex called to check on J and we managed to have a conversation that didn’t end in my wanting to curl up in a ball and die.  That’s got to be progress of some kind… […]

How did I get here and What Comes Next!?

There should be a map to Motherhood that hospitals give you when you give birth. Just a little road map, tucked into the bag with the seven free samples of formula and the pink and blue striped hats. It doesn’t have to be much, just something that outlines the major points for you. It could […]
