Pairings Retreat: From Dream to Reality

One day, shortly after the beginning of the new year, my friend Cristina from Your Personal Producer and I were on G-chat as we normally are, sharing our dreams for 2018. She was in a funk and I was in a post-Paris high! 2017 had seen some serious ups and downs for both of usContinue reading “Pairings Retreat: From Dream to Reality”

Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers

Let’s talk about sex. A very personal topic, to be sure. And I’ll be straight with you, internet. I’ve never had it. I didn’t have it on prom night or experiment in college. I didn’t have a Bradshaw-esque one night stand in New York City or make a really bad drunken decision. (Well, that’s notContinue reading “Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers”

Not My Timeline

Look, whether you are a passenger on the Trump Train or are currently working on your protest signs for the next march, you cannot deny that there has been a shift, a change in the winds. But instead of getting Mary Poppins, we got hatred, derision, division, fear, riots, protests, strikes, trolling, name-calling and more. A lot of us are asking,Continue reading “Not My Timeline”

Dear Inspiration,

Dear inspiration, Dear spark of imagination, Dear intense, unfailing dedication to sharing my inner conflagration, Where have you gone today? Correction, where have you been for a while now? I remember the days when we would sit in Central Park, me with a pen and paper, you swarming through my whole being, igniting the cobwebs inContinue reading “Dear Inspiration,”

Having a Moment

I was recently described by someone as “busy…in a good way.” As in, always working, always going, always doing, always trying. I do think of that as a good thing. I like to stay busy. I like to think of new projects to try, new songs to write, new blogs to post, new Instagram challengesContinue reading “Having a Moment”

Return to Blogland

You know what’s hard to do? Write a book about boys and dating when you currently have no interest in boys or dating. I know, I know…I wrote an entire 40 episode web series on boys and dating. So…there’s that. And I can’t really describe to you what’s changed. The fundamental paradigm shift that’s happened inContinue reading “Return to Blogland”

God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers

5 years ago I wrote some nerdy Christmas Carols for my family… I always dreamed of recording them one day and this fall while I was out in California, a reunion with an old friend started me down the path to seeing that dream realized. Thanks to Kevin Porter of Flash Grove Music for interpretingContinue reading “God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers”

Finding Inspiration

I’m a pretty inspired person. I find inspiration in music. I find it in movies. I find it in books and blogs and friendships and in daily quiet time with God. Out here in California I find it when simply gazing at the sunshiney sky or a perfectly placed palm tree. But sometimes the wellContinue reading “Finding Inspiration”

Overachiever Much?

Back in high school, no one could accuse me of being an overachiever. I sat in the back of the class, half-assed my work and got bad grades to show for it. I graduated with zero honors and went to Community College because I didn’t get in to FSU on my first go around. AllContinue reading “Overachiever Much?”
