The Experience of Heartbreak in the Digital Age

Breakups put a knot in your heart, a stopping point for the old you and idea of an us. And modern gadgets, along with social media, keep that knot squeezed tighter and tighter, making if hard for a slip of a ribbon to eek out and precariously begin to flap anew. Sarah Hallacher observed of […]

Grow Anyway

It probably comes as no surprise (especially if you follow my Twitter feed) that I read a lot on the big, ol’ online (and even in print..I’m looking at you, YMCA copies of The New Yorker). Admittedly, I rely quite a bit on The Atlantic (I might be addicted) but one of my favorite means of […]

Texts With Megan

  People who knew you before right this moment tend to bring a different insight on your YOU-ness than people you will meet after this moment. It’s one of the reasons I love strangers: they are able to show you who you can be. Old friends show you who you were though, and recognize when […]

Last week, my work rented out a spacious, crazy-amazing deck on the 40th floor of a fancy pants hotel in San Francisco with the express purpose of watching the Blue Angels practice their stunt work for Fleet Week.

If you’ve asked, just receive, baby.

In my quietest dreams and tiniest downtimes, I asked to forget. For the visceral memories to fade into the doorframe and make space in the doorway for something new to enter. After forgiving myself and accepting the present as I knew it, I asked for a reason to find peace. – My dear friend Jesse […]

Who’s Been Raped? This Girl.

For the past seven years, right around this time I find myself anxious without just cause. Jitters and jumpiness, leaping lizards and all sorts of other springy-bouncy feelings zip through my nervous system, my body tensing for no reason as I rest my weary head moments before sleep. Finally I look at the calendar and […]

On the Inhumane Treatment of Ex’s

Last week delivered me a doozy couple of days. There was the brusque one-armed pseudo salute of someone who once told me they always wanted me as part of their life, no matter what. Which I understood. I’m not his favorite person anymore – and sometimes we make promises we intend to keep but cannot. […]
